What software? What provider? The software this section of the forum deals with only uses guide data provided by SD so the question would be why don't you get guide data (i.e. clear qam without psip data, a country not offered, etc.) as there isn't any other source of data.

If you need to provide your own source of data, you would need third party software which is another section of this forum.

If you are in an area where we have guide data but it has not been mapped for your provider we can map the listings as long as the provider sends enough information to identify the channel. This would most commonly happen in Germany, the US, and Spain. If you're in a country we don't have guide listings for, you will not be able to get guide listings in the HDHomeRun app and will not be able to use the HDHomeRun DVR. If you have an outside source that provides XMLTV data, that can be used with a number of third-party apps like Plex and NextPVR, but not with the HDHomeRun app/DVR.

I'm in Portugal and my provider is Vodafone, they don't have EPG over RF, is there any guide for 3rd party apps to do this?

Thank you
