UK user - installing and using mc2xml for TVHeadend


I have finally managed to install and set up TVHeadend on Openmediavault (which is based upon Debian Jessie).

I have a Schedules Direct account and am trying to install and set up mc2xml so the guide data is available in TVHeadend.

Unfortunately, I am still a complete Linux novice and really struggling to understand what to do.

A complete idiot's walk through would be really appreciated.

The Kodi Community Forum can probably assist you with your problem:

You have probably see this link already:

Note the replies suggesting that zap2xml should be used instead of mc2xml.
