Hi,
 
Here are a few explanation about the latest changes in EPGImport:
 
For IPTV:
 
You now need to match the service reference between the userbouquet and the channels.xml file.
So if your IPTV channel are properly added using the #SERVICE 4097:.... now in the channels.xml this MUST also be 4097!
 
 
LastUpdate.txt:
 
We have faced several times the following problem, Doglover/Rytec can no longer upload newest file to EPG mirror servers but servers still distribute obsolete EPG data files to client. Result was no EPG even if data was downloaded because data where obsolete.
 
To prevent this it was decide in accordance with Rytec/Doglover to add a control file:  LastUpdate.txt, this file must only be set with the last update date when all the files are properly uploaded to it. (date format is YYYY-mm-dd)
So if we have again a server in this bad state it will be rejected by the checkValidServer.
 
 
But people that define there own sources.xml file that point to there own server can decide not to use this check (LastUpdate.log) by adding the attribute  nocheck="1"
 
 
Be careful:
First implementation uses LastUpdate.log but a mirror was unable to provide .log file so we need to change to LastUpdate.txt
 
 
IPTV or custom sources.xml: file custom.channels.xml
 
When defining sources.xml file it was mandatory to define again all the servers URL.
 
So for people that use IPTV and create there own sources.xml file and also channels.xml file this create a double donwload from EPG data mirror.
 
To avoid this an ease the creation of personal .channels.xml files it is now possible to just create one file:
 
custom.channels.xml
 
You include in this file all you self created service reference (the same as in your bouquets files).
Just place this file into /etc/epgimport/ folder, it will be readed and processed for every downloaded EPG data file.
 
 No more case sensitive for channel id into channels.xml file:
 
To ease maintainer life Doglove/Rytec it has been decided to have the channel id=" "  no more case sensitive.
 
So TF1.fr tf1.fr Tf1.fr will now be considered as the same channel for EPG data sources.

Be careful: a mirror was unable to return file with .log extension, so we decide to change the file from LastUpdate.log to LastUpdate.txt.

 

Sorry for this late change for people using there own EPG data server please update the creation of your LastUpdate.txt file accordingly or use the nocheck="1" option.

For picons, we allow all service types to work with a picon. Whether 1, 19, 4097, 5001, 5002. I was hoping the same could be done for EPG.

I have no idea what is going wrong.

However, it seems that you have a custom made sources file.  The one on the screenshot is definitely not the one from rytec.

So in that file you could have everything changed.  No idea what.

 

Can you show us the files you made?

That is a picture from OpenATV. The OE-A fork is broken because of the IP6 checks.

The change are made are for EPGImport this one is used only by OpenPLi  from EPGImport there is a fork called XMLTVImport which is used by OE-Alliance images (check dsayers2016 provided link).

So someone port the change I made in EPGImport into XMLTVImport but this porting cause troubles, because XMLTVImport implement a legacy IPv6 download that doesn't work properly.

 

So problem is on the OE-Alliance side, not in OpenPLi one.

Sorry but this log doesn't display any error.
So either:
- You don't receive the satellite that this file is intended for so nothing is loaded into memory: imported 0 events
- The references used for those channels have changed and nobody inform Doglover of the change.
- You receive those channels from another means (DVB-C for exemple) and the reference are not known by Doglover.
 
Here is the list of channels included in this package:
  <channel id="BTSportEur.uk">
  <channel id="ChelseaTV.uk">
  <channel id="ESPN.uk">
  <channel id="Eurosport1.uk">
  <channel id="Eurosport2.uk">
  <channel id="ExtremeSports.uk">
  <channel id="GINXeSportsTV.uk">
  <channel id="LiverpoolFCTV.uk">
  <channel id="MUTV.uk">
  <channel id="MovieMix.uk">
  <channel id="SkyArts1.uk">
  <channel id="SkyAtlantic.uk">
  <channel id="SkyAtlanticplus1.uk">
  <channel id="SkyBrits.uk">
  <channel id="SkyCinemaHits.uk">
  <channel id="SkyCinemaThriller.uk">
  <channel id="SkyMoviesActionThriller.uk">
  <channel id="SkyMoviesComedy.uk">
  <channel id="SkyMoviesDisney.uk">
  <channel id="SkyMoviesDrama.uk">
  <channel id="SkyMoviesFamily.uk">
  <channel id="SkyMoviesIndie.uk">
  <channel id="SkyMoviesPremiere.uk">
  <channel id="SkyMoviesPremiereplus1.uk">
  <channel id="SkySciFiHorror.uk">
  <channel id="SkySpAction.uk">
  <channel id="SkySpArena.uk">
  <channel id="SkySpBoxOff.uk">
  <channel id="SkySpCricket.uk">
  <channel id="SkySpF1.uk">
  <channel id="SkySpFball.uk">
  <channel id="SkySpMainEv.uk">
  <channel id="SkySpMix.uk">
  <channel id="SkySpNews.uk">
  <channel id="SkySpPL.uk">
  <channel id="SkySpTheOpen.uk">
  <channel id="SkySports1.ie">
  <channel id="SkySports5.ie">
  <channel id="ZeeCinema.uk">
So if you can provide the correct service reference for those channels I am sure Doglover will include them.
