Eventhough this probably only applies to the Netherlands, I'm posting it here.

The Dutch DVB-T2 system allows for 2 regional programmes in the FTA mux.

I believe these always have the same service-ID:

1_0_1F_2E4_906_2210_EEEE0000_0_0_0 and



In my case these are assigned to "Omroep Brabant" and "L1mburg" as I live in the Eindhoven region.

The Rytec channels.xml assigns these to "TV Rijnmond" and "Omroep Zeeland".

So when importing the Rytec EPG I always have the wrong EPG for these channels.

Is there anything that can be done about this?

Since these have all the same service ref, we will have always problems assigning the correct value.

Therefore I removed these service refs from the channels file.


If you want EPG imported for these channels, ypu can put the references in the custom.channels.xml file


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<channel id="EPGref1">1:0:1:2EE:906:2210:EEEE0000:0:0:0:</channel><!-- Channel 1 -->
<channel id="EPGref">1:0:1:2E4:906:2210:EEEE0000:0:0:0:</channel><!-- Channel 2 -->



Replace EPGref and Channel 1/2 with one of the values from the list below:


channel id="L1.nl"     L1          
channel id="OmroepGelderland.nl"     Omroep Gelderland         
channel id="RTVWest.nl"     TV West         
channel id="OmropFryslan.nl"     Omrop Fryslan         
channel id="RTVDordrecht.nl"     RTV Dordrecht         
channel id="RTVDrenthe.nl"     RTV Drenthe           
channel id="TVRijnmond.nl"     TV Rijnmond          
channel id="RTVUtrecht.nl"     Regio TV Utrecht           
channel id="RTVNoord.nl"     RTV Noord         
channel id="OmroepZeeland.nl"     Omroep Zeeland         
channel id="Flevoland.nl"     Omroep Flevoland         
channel id="RTVOost.nl"     TV Oost         
channel id="AT5.nl"     AT5         
channel id="OmroepBrabant.nl"     Omroep Brabant         
channel id="NoordHolland.nl"     RTV Noord-Holland

Hello Willy,


thanks for the very elaborate answer to my question. Also my apologies for not responding earlier.

I added a "custom.channels.xml" file in the /etc/importepg folder looking like this:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<channel id="L1.nl">1:0:1:2EE:906:2210:EEEE0000:0:0:0:</channel><!-- L1 -->
<channel id="OmroepBrabant.nl">1:0:1:2E4:906:2210:EEEE0000:0:0:0:</channel><!-- Omroep Brabant -->



and indeed: EPG is now correct.

Once again, thanks very much!!!
