Cable UK (virgin network)

Postby bobby13 » Sat Dec 12, 2009 12:58 pm

Hi guys, firstly thanks for great site and tool, been playing with it for days trying to make it do what I need.

Basically heres what Im trying to do:

I need to create an epg.day file which will import into dreambox 800 via crossepg. Crossepg can import epg.dat files itself, however I can not find a epg.dat source which will work with UK cable company. The radio times I would guess should have all the channels needed.

Using cmltv I've,
grabbed UK_RT
Added all the channels.
For post processors Ive just sleected them all.
Then the app outputs its data.xml file. (66mb)
I have them gzip the file and uploaded it to hosting.
THen told crossepg to download it, which is does.
But its not populating on the epg listing. (namely no change to epg listings)

Now I know there is hundreds of other dreambox 800 cable users on others forums who would love to have more than 1 day epg. Which is why Im trying to get it working so can share with them. So, anyone who can help me, I would apprecaite it.

does the dreambox support xmltv data? do you need to install an addon to make it support it? you might get more help on a dreambox forum

  </programme>


I need crossepg format

just copy the above script into the xmltv_import directory
change UK_RT_ALT_RT to an identifier of your choice
change Grabber = "UK_RT" to Grabber = "XMLTV_Import"

you need to go into the scripts directory and follow the instructions above, a new item should then appear in the postprocessors tab

for crossepg need such a variant

Code: Select all
  <programme start="20130820045000 +0300" stop="20130820052000 +0300" channel="tnt2">
    <title>Т/с "Счастливы вместе", 306 с.</title>
  </programme>


but this manages to xmltvgui

Code: Select all
<programme start="20130820045000 +0300" stop="20130820052000 +0300" channel="tnt2">
<title>Т/с &quot;Счастливы вместе&quot;, 306 с.</title>
</programme>


:(

I'm sorry but that is a bug in crossepg, there isn't any way to get xmltvgui to output that format.
