Hey guys,

 

for days i have been trying to import xml file form an external source.

This source www.iptv-epg.com lets you collect your channels and then gernates an xml file for you to download.

 

I have tried epgimporter and crossepg but it wont import the epg.

 

Perhabs you guys have an solution for me.

 

Here are the eddited sources:

 

epgimport:

<source type="gen_xmltv" channels="gernated_source_link.xml">
   <description>EPG_IPTV</description>
   <url>gernated_source_link.xml</url>
</source>
 

 

crossepg:

description=IPTVEPG
protocol=xmltv
channels_url_0=gernated_source_link.xml
epg_url_0=gernated_source_link.xml
preferred_language=eng

Crossepg cannot import an local file.  It only imports files from the internet.

 

epgimport can import local files.  Butr you have to defined the the path where the files are located, or store the files in the folder etc/epgimport/

An example for the local.sources file can be:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="latin-1"?>
<sources>
<source type="gen_xmltv" channels="/home/Fritz/epg/rytec.channels.xml">
<description>IPTV XMLTV</description>
<url>/home/Fritz/epg/rytecxmltvIPTV.gz</url>
</source>

</sources>

Secondly the format of the files is also of importance.

Can you give me an example of these files (gernated_source_link.xml) and (gernated_source_link.xml).  So I can judge if you have any chance of importing data.

Here is the generated list:

This should import.  However:

<programme start="20170206120000 -0500" stop="20170206130000 -0500" channel="A&E">
<title lang="en">Dog the Bounty Hunter</title>
<sub-title lang="en">Bounty Baby</sub-title>
<desc lang="en">The cops ask Dog for help tracking down a renegade teen with a history of running hard, and Lyssa, eight months pregnant, joins the hunt</desc>
<credits>
<actor>Duane 'Dog' Chapman</actor>
<actor>Beth Chapman</actor>
<actor>Leland Chapman</actor>
</credits>
<category lang="en">Reality TV</category>
<rating system="US">
<value>TVPG</value>
</rating>
</programme>

 Only the Title, Subtitle and desc tags will be imported.  The rest is ignored in Enigma2.

 

Therefore I incorporated these tags into the desc tag.  Like here:

<programme start="20170204173500 +0100" stop="20170204191000 +0100" channel="ClubRTL.be">
    <title lang="fr">Miracle en Alaska</title>
    <sub-title lang="fr">[Film] .  (Big Miracle.) (Durée : 95 mn.) (2012)</sub-title>
    <desc lang="fr">Un journaliste et une militante de Greenpeace mobilisent l'opinion publique et la classe politique pour sauver trois baleines piégées par la banquise en Alaska.
En octobre 1988, au nord de l'Alaska, à Barrow, trois baleines grises sont piégées par la banquise. Les cétacés peuvent à peine respirer. Ils risquent la noyade. Adam Carlson, un journaliste, réalise un sujet pour la télévision pour alerter l'opinion publique sur le sort de ces baleines condamnées. Rachel Kramer, son ancienne petite amie, volontaire et militante pour l'organisation Greenpeace, décide de le rejoindre afin de sauver les mammifères marins. Déterminée, elle tente de mobiliser les gouvernements américain et soviétique pour obtenir plusieurs hélicoptères et un brise-glace. Les médias s'emparent de cette affaire...
John Chase (Roy), Ahmaogak Sweeney (Nathan), John Pingayak (Malik), Dermot Mulroney, Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, John Krasinski, Drew Barrymore.:</desc>
  </programme>

But this is not the reason it does not import.  Because basically the structure is correct.

 

You also need a channels file.  This is the file which contains the links between the channels listed in the XMLTV file and the service refs of the channels.

I am missing this in your post.  The channels file will look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- service references can be found in /etc/enigma2/lamedb -->
<channels>
<channel id="TVL.be">1:0:1:1:0:32:0:0:0:0:http%3a//urtmpkal-f.akamaihd.net/i/1ef9833b4_1@128347/index_1_av-p.m3u8</channel> <!-- TVL ++IPTV++  -->
<channel id="ATV.be">1:0:1:2:0:32:0:0:0:0:http%3a//urtmpkal-f.akamaihd.net/i/1ut1nl3fq_1@316656/index_1_av-p.m3u8</channel> <!-- ATV ++IPTV++  -->
<channel id="TVoost.be">1:0:1:3:0:32:0:0:0:0:http%3a//urtmpkal-f.akamaihd.net/i/1uaalhcyz_1@309863/index_1_av-p.m3u8</channel> <!-- TV Oost ++IPTV++  -->
<channel id="DobbitTV.be">1:0:1:10:0:32:0:0:0:0:http%3a//193.110.252.20%3a1935/live/dobbittv.stream/playlist.m3u8</channel> <!-- Dobbit TV ++IPTV++  -->
<channel id="AntenneCentre.be">1:0:1:1:1:32:0:0:0:0:http%3a//vm109.imust.org%3a1935/live/livestream/playlist.m3u8</channel> <!-- Antenne Centre ++IPTV++  -->
<channel id="TeleMonsBorinage.be">1:0:1:2:1:32:0:0:0:0:http%3a//vm109.imust.org%3a1935/live/telemb-live/playlist.m3u8</channel> <!-- Tele MB ++IPTV++  -->
</channels>

Which will provide EPG for these channels in the bouquet. (these actual working IPTV channels - but can be regio locked)

#SERVICE 4097:0:1:2:0:32:0:0:0:0:http%3a//urtmpkal-f.akamaihd.net/i/1ut1nl3fq_1@316656/index_1_av-p.m3u8:atv

So can you send me your list pls.  (you can remove or replace the URL's with some dummy values)

I see the problem:

Pls. read the second post in this thread:  https://forums.openp...ls-service-ref/

 

In  order for a stream to play on an enigma2 machine an service ref has to be assigned.

When you add a stream to your Enigma-box, they all have the same reference ID.
(4097:0:1:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:)
So, adding picons or EPG would not work.

 

In fact all the example you gave me in the PM start with:  #SERVICE 1:0:1:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:

The same service ref.  They will play (provide the URL is correct), but you cannot assign picons or EPG to this channels.

For this to work, all channels must have a different service ref.

 

For more information about this pls. read the thread:  https://forums.openp...-iptv-channels/

 

What you experience, I have been asked over and over before.  I made these threads just for this purpose.

I am sorry it is not easier, but that is the way it is.  And yes for the normally sat channels I have to maintain a rytec.channels.xml list manually.  Which is frankly speaking a pain in the ass, but I have not figured out a fool proof automatic way.  (some automatisation can be done, but requires so much checking it is easier just doing it manually)

ok, so now i edited the SID on my channel from 0 to 8884

 

channel test xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- service references can be found in /etc/enigma2/lamedb -->
<channels>
<channel id="AE">1:0:1:8884:0:0:0:0:0:0:"stream_link"</channel>:AE<!-- AE ++IPTV++  -->
</channels>
 
userbouquet entry:
#SERVICE 1:0:1:8884:0:0:0:0:0:0:"stream_link":AE
#DESCRIPTION AE
 
as far as i know this should be right now but still no update...

Except it might not work.

userbouquet entry:
#SERVICE 1:0:1:8884:0:0:0:0:0:0:"stream_link":AE
#DESCRIPTION AE

should be named:

userbouquet entry:
#SERVICE 4097:0:1:8884:0:0:0:0:0:0:"stream_link":AE
#DESCRIPTION AE

At least that is my experience.  But some people seem to get results with your naming.

In the test.channels.xml do not change the 1 to 4097.  Yes this is confusing.

 

One last remark: 

 

Avoid using the & in the channels names, and EPG channel-id's

Like this:  <channel id="A&E">

 

The & has a special meaning in XML files, and some programs have problems with it (at least I had problems with it in EPGimport)

Therefore this channel in the Rytec files is called: AandE.es

<channel id="AandE.es">1:0:1:772D:416:1:C00000:0:0:0:</channel> <!-- AandE -->

 

At least try with another channel which does not have this problem.

(AE has no data attached to it in the XMLTV file. A&E has data, but that might have a problem)

PS: After you changed the service ref in the bouquet file, I hope you reloaded the bouquets in your receiver.  Otherwise enigma is still looking at the old service refs.

Closer look at your channels file example:

<channel id="AE">1:0:1:8884:0:0:0:0:0:0:"stream_link"</channel>:AE<!-- AE ++IPTV++  -->

is wrong and would cause a failure the EPGimport

 

The line should be:

<channel id="AE">1:0:1:8884:0:0:0:0:0:0:"stream_link"</channel> <!-- AE ++IPTV++  -->

So remove :AE from between > and <!--

 

Remember that in an xml file everything between <!-- and --> is comment.  And used here to make it human readable.  In between <!-- and --> you can put everything what you want, it will be ignored by EPGimport.

I never use crossepg.  In fact I hate it. 

In EPGimport you can ask a log. In our FAQ's

 

* Where is the epgimport.log

 

Open the XMLTV importer.

Press now the info or epg button on your remote.

Now you see the log.  This log can be saved, and you find the saved fle in /tmp/

The IPTV Channels do not show up in the lamdb, could that be the problem?

They are not in the lamedb, they are only bouquet entries.


Currently in use: VU+ Duo 4K (2xFBC S2), VU+ Solo 4K (1xFBC S2), Mutant HD66SE (S2+T2), (Octagon SF8008 (S2+T2), Zgemma H9.2H (S2+T2)

Due to my bad health, for the forseeable future I will no longer be active. I will not read the forum or PM.

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

The only differnce i see I edited it as following:

<channel id="FX">1:0:1:8887:8887:0:0:0:0:0

 

So you are saying i should edit the "1" to "4097"?

In a post of yours you wrote it does not have to be edited...
