Can anyone help me summarize how to configure nPVR, SageTV and MediaPortal to generate XML files with the recording metatata for each file recorded.

The only option I'm aware of which was reported by a user is for nPVR:
I was poking around in the default data folder (/users/public/NPVR) and opened up config.xml - under "recording" there's a setting called "storeseparatemetadataxml" - it's apparently set to false by default and it's not an option that can be changed in-app as far as I can tell.

I use mediaportal to view the movies created by 7MC.....it reads the .nfo files you generate with no problem and uses them when adding shows and movies. Is that the info you wanted?

I was looking steps for how does one configure MediaPortal to generate the NFO files (which then MCEbuddy will read).
