Make EPGimport search for custom.channels.xml file

 

These days, several users have their own channels file for some extra channels.  IPTV channels mainly.

Some of these channels are freely available on the net.  And can be played on an enigma2 receiver.

(Some use this also to receive illegal IPTV channels)

 

In order to provide EPG for these channels, at the moment you need to add separate import to the sources file with you own "custom.channels.xml" file

The drawback is that you then download the data files twice which is bad, I agree.

 

A solution is that the extra channels are  integrated it your own rytec.channels.xml.  But you lose to advantage of the on-line update of the rytec.channels.xml file.

 

So the idea, is to expand EPGimport capability:  it will use the normal channels file defined in the rytec.sources.xml file" but also use "at the same time" the file "custom.channels.xml" from the folder /etc/epgimport/ so the data file are only downloaded once and EPG are applied both to rytec and custom channels.

This can be accomplished by merging the downloaded channels file with the custom.channels.xml file before the actual import.  But any other solution is of course welcome

 

This modification is above my pay grade.  Any help (mainly doing it yourself) is welcome.

Can anybody change the XMLTVimport plug-in to perform this?

 

Willy

 

PS:  Thanks to Pr2 for suggesting this modification.

With this improvement, all those who are using EPGfilter and custom assignments for IPTV channels and just use the rytec sources, do not need to construct a custom.sources.xml file anymore.

The xxx.channels.xml files placed in /etc/epgimport will be incorporated automatically.

 

When use your own XMLTV files, you still need a custom.sources.xml file

I add you comment into Github by a correction: Be careful that I only process the file called custom.channels.xml any other xxx.channels.xml will not be readed and included automatically! For those files the xxx.sources.xml is needed.

 

So the text became:
