I got reguarly (once a week) that the import hangs.


When i open the app it is 'importing' and xml file, today it where the german channels, it was allready over 3 hours doing this.

Nothing seems to be happening, the only way to fix this is a reboot, epgimport then starts over and normally imports all xml files, then it imports within a few minutes everything (314195 imported)


As mentioned this happens on regualy bases, sometimes once a week or once every 2 weeks.


When it hangs the box itself work fine, only the epg channels of some channels are missing (delete before import is activated).

I a not sure but it hangs on random channels, so it is not always the german channels.


Is this a known problem and is there a fix for it?

No this is not a known problem, on which box does this happens and on which image and version?


Can you please check how is setup the option: Import data only for channels in favorites? Because this option is running silently and if you have a huge favorite list this takes a (very long) time.

You can then give a try to disable this option.
