Thanks, 

Okay i feel a bit stupid now, the issue i was having at least with the pli version of the plugin is i had not installed a channel list, i do not remember that being an issue prior.... is that a new feature of the plugin ?? #brain is fried...........

What compounded the issue is some sources will work regardless of the channels being in the list or not..... (i tested by removing all channels)

 

Anyways it is now working with a channel list installed (btw it requires a reboot to take effect)

The "unknown channel" in the logs on Rytecs source all end in .uk so that might be the issue, it is just the way some channels are named in the channel list epgimporter makes reference to, same for mine with the likes of itv general use

Hi,

Yes channels.xml were always mandatory, the channels.xml make the link between the service reference and the channel id.
In the real EPG data file only the channel id is used.
That's why you can create multiple channels.xml and point to the same EPG data sources.
So EPG Data source on its own totally ignore the service reference!

But this has a drawback effect, if you have multiple channels.xml for the same data files they are downloaded multiple times.
That's why I create the custom.channels.xml where it is now possible to easily add service references that will be used for every EPG data file.
So if you use it we only need to download once the EPG data file once.

About the channel id it is Doglover that assign the name (and now the name are non-case sensitive) the extension .uk, .fr, .ie is part of the name and don't have any real meaning.

 

I know that the "unknown channel" are really confusing for end-user looking at the log. Those channels are in the EPG Data file but don't have an assigned value in the channels.xml file sp they are not loaded into memory. This is informational but not really meaningful. I already think to suppress them and rather mention the channels that are really loaded this will be more clear and more easy for troubleshooting.

This is not a list from us.  So I cannot comment on.

Except:

 

Let me explain the term Unknown Channel.

 

An unknown channel is channel which is not present in the channels file, or in the lamdeb file.

An example will make this clearer:

 

The import plug-in reads an XMLTV file and finds in there channels.  f.i one channel_id is called 4music.uk.  The plug-in will look now in the channels file (f.i. rytec.channels.xml)  and tries to find service references in there to which that EPG  will to be assigned.  If it cannot find any channel_id named 4music.uk, this is called an Unknown channel.

If a service ref is found, the plug-in will now check if this service ref is present in the lamedb  (in fact checking if you can watch the channel).  If the service ref is in lamedb, again the channels is called Unknown, and the EPG will not be loade into memory for this channel.  In the example for 4music.uk

For IPTV (the service refs with an http extension) this last step is skipped, and the EPG is loaded in memory anyway.

OK.

 

f.i sky atlantic has a schedule in the XMLTV file.  But it is nor referenced in the channels file.

Yes most of my unknown channel's will be redundant channel's since the grab from opentv data has about 600 channel's and my channel.xml only about 400. In my case I need to edit serv ref in both my webgrab xml and my channel.xml when there is changes to either provider 28.2east opentv data and also cable UK.
There is some old crap in there that should not be....
For the most part it's run by a script and is forgotten about until I see issues
Sky Atlantic is now sky witness
Also a lot of channel's on 28.2 are not on the cable provider at all...
