I suspect the problem might be related to channel selection (do "help
channelselection"). The indication = 'MEG'
results in a selection of known MEG channels, but that selection was
implemented for the CTF system (where MEG channels start with the
letter "M") and might not work for your Neuromag data.

please try = 'MEG'  % or something else = channelselection(, data.label)
and you will see which channels are selected for subsequent
processing (in this case plotting, but the same applies to all other

best regards,

PS note that you can do
   dbstop if error
on the matlab command line and you will automatically jump to the
line where the error happens, which facilitates debugging.
