Overview

PiGS is a software project developed to replace the Channel Master CM-7500 DVR+ Electronic Program Guide (EPG) with guide data from Schedules Direct. PiGS is actually a webserver, designed with a specific purpose, to emulate, or act like channel Master's Guide server (Except PiGS provides very good data)

You do need a computer to run the PiGS server software. PiGS can run on multiple platforms, but the most straight forward method, which is recommended by the developer, is to use an inexpensive Raspberry Pi mini-computer, ~$45. Why do I think this? The Rasberry Pi is a very small separate low power computer, always on, you dont need to worry about it. But, there are numerous other ways to run PiGS, some of them free. Others are posting their novel solutions on the forum.

Setting up PiGS will take some effort on your part, as PiGS is not a commercial product - PiGS is free (if PiGS is useful to you, you can make a donation to the developer, as PiGS took hundreds of hours to code and test). The setup & installation will be improved over time, and you can get help on this forum.
