Hi, I'm using Openpli 3.0 image on my Solo, The EPG is not refreshing.
Only some of the channels are showing the guide & even then only showing now/next.
The only settings for the EPG is to enable or disable, no other settings on this image.

Also to change channels I have to press the right arrow on remote, instead of channel up/down,
is there any setting to change this?

The previous image had a lot more settings. PLEASE HELP.

Sorry but I am a total dummy at this.

Welcome here.

Whether or not your box can receive EPG information "over the air" depends on which provider you'e watching. Those that use the DVB standard (like for example the German, Belgian or Dutch channels) can be recieved without problems. Others use propriatary systems which have been reverse engineered, like Freesat in the UK. Those you can receive too. Others (like for example SKY UK or SKY IT) use systems that are not supported.

Now/next information is always broadcasted using DVB standards, so that explains why you have that, but not more.

You might have a look at Rytecs XMLTV importer, to see if they support EPG for your provider.

Currently in use: VU+Duo 4K (2xFBC S2), Amiko Viper T2C (T2), SAB Alpha Triple HD (S2+T2), Zgemma H3.T2C (T/C), Zgemma H6 (fallback), VU+Zero (fallback)

Many answers to your question can be found in our new and improved wiki.

note: I do not provide support via PM !

I used to use vix image with provider Sky & it used to work, but since changing to openpli I have this
problem, How do I get Rytecs XMLTV Importer, also any settings for the remote?

Rytec has his own forum here, I'm sure this question has been answered before, and otherwise someone in there can help you further.
