hi, i am looking for some help or a bump in the right direction, pls
i have been reading around but just can't seem to get the nack of it.

im from south africa and on dstv. i have my dreambox 500s x4 / 600pvr x1 setup with jade pli
i have the the fllowing plugins installed
mv plugin
sqlite epg import plugin
xmltv epgimport rytec plugin
e1 multiview 2.5.3
e1 rytec package
e1 rytec package dat files

i have the sqllite selected under the epg setting under the main settings.

I am not looking for a hand out and i am quite willing the read more but i would just like to know what i should do eg.

i have the site / link for our dstv xml tv channels guide
(http://zaxmltv.flash.za.org/)

I just need to find out how to and where to onto the boxes the file should go and or script to wget of something from the site.
my /var and /hdd are network shares so no worries there.

please, anyone with a litte help would be much appreciated

I have created a shell script to import the DStv EPG into the SQLite EPG database. It's quite crude but it does the job. Let me know if you're interested and I'll post it here.

I was able to import the EPG using db_epg and the XMLTV files downloaded from ZAXMLTV. The website has the files for 14 days only. Downloading files for all the channels would make the database too big so I wrote the script to download files for the channels that we frequently watch. You can change these channels to your liking. I've also broken the downloading into channel groups to make it easier to understand when downloading and editing.

There are two files that are required. One is the script file and the other is the map file. I copied the script file to /usr/bin/ and I copied the map file to the sqlite database directory, /media/server1/. You must change the directories in the script to suit your setup. This is my second shell script in linux (my first script was only 1 line) so it is not very good but it does work :-). I hope it helps you.

The script file, zaxmltv.sh:
#/bin/sh
