Hello,

 

I would like to put some IPTV channels into my satellite favorite bouquet (my IPTV channels are currently in a specific IPTV bouquet), so I will have mixed IPTV and Satellite channels in the same bouquet.

My problem is that, using OpenWebIf, if I do a "search" of my IPTV channel (to then drag and drop it to my satellite bouquet), OpenWebif does not find it. It seems that the "search" of OpenWebif is not able to find IPTV channels.

 

So do you know how should I be able to mix both IPTV and Satellite channels in a same single bouquet ?

 

Thanks !

Hi, I always use it directly at the box with my remote. Go in channel list to your IPTV channel and press menu. The rest should be easy to find. Ralf

Unless I'm wrong, the problem is the same with the box. You cannot move an IPTV channel from one bouquet to another.

For these purposes I use the e-channelizer program, it perfectly copes with this task. But there is one thing! it is paid. Its cost is one pack of cigarettes per month. Provided that in your region of residence a pack of cigarettes costs one euro. :)

After multiple tests, finally I could do it simply with the remote controller : I went to my IPTV bouquets, selected a channel, then pressed "menu" and choosed something like "add service to a bouquet". Then I just selected the Satellite bouquet, and that's all. I did that for all my IPTV channels.

The only very small problem is that there is no picon displayed for the IPTV channel. If anyone has a solution for that ...

Rename the channel to match it's real name and you will have the picon if you use picon by name of course.

Then you have to either copy that to the service reference you've given your stream in your bouqquet file, or change the service reference in the bouquet file to match the picon name.

Why people still use picons by reference while it is so much easy to use picons by name approach and reserved the picons by reference to for the potentially conflicting ones.

So either switch to picon by name or create the symlink with the name of the TV channels towards is reference.

The trick of WanWizard won't work for IPTV because since the reference is a satellite or cable one it will zap to it and not use at all the IPTV channels reference mentioned.

Hmmm, yeah, didn't think of that... I assumed that you didn't have an IPTV entry for a channel you can already receive normally...

The answer is simple : because I did not know there were two different ways of using picons. I am a new user of OpenPLi. To obtain picons I just followed the best tutorial I could find. Now I just need to find a tutorial explaining how to install picons by name ...

We provide picons in the feed in two types: "snp" (service name picons) en "srp" (service reference picons).

 

And note that larger isn't necessarily better, especially if you have a low memory box, so you have to experiment a bit.

 

Also note that you need you remove an installed picon set before you install another one, if you don't the package management system will get hopelessly confused.

Hi.

 

I edit "/etc/enigma2/userbouquet.some_list_name.tv" files manually using an FTP connection (in Total Commander) and using a "Notepad++" text-editor, but it's best to use any tools under Windows OS. With a tools, you can conveniently edit channel lists. For example, one nice tool is the "E-Channelizer" - unfortunately commercial software. The freeware (shareware) version of E-Channelizer is an unusable version without virtually all important functions. There is also freeware "DreamboxEdit", but it does not include so many options for editing IPTV channels, as well as a commercial "E-Channelizer".

 

BTW, the order and existence of available "lists" of channels is modified in a simple file "/etc/enigma2/bouquets.tv".

 

Example of my userbouquet file (IPTV + SAT):

#SERVICE 1:64:3:0:0:0:0:0:0:0::-------- Cinema/Movies --------
#DESCRIPTION -------- Cinema/Movies --------
#SERVICE 1:0:19:132B:CA2:3:EB0000:0:0:0:
#SERVICE 1:0:19:132C:CA2:3:EB0000:0:0:0:
#SERVICE 1:0:19:132D:CA2:3:EB0000:0:0:0:
#SERVICE 1:0:1:806:C0A:20CB:EEEE0000:0:0:0:http%3a//208.20.30.107%3a5000/:Barrandov News
#DESCRIPTION Barrandov News
#SERVICE 1:0:16:36E9:C8C:3:EB0000:0:0:0:
#SERVICE 1:0:16:52E3:C96:3:EB0000:0:0:0:http%3a//208.20.30.105%3a5000/:Filmbox Plus
#DESCRIPTION Filmbox Plus
#SERVICE 1:0:16:52E4:C96:3:EB0000:0:0:0:http%3a//208.20.30.61%3a5000/:Filmbox Premium HD
#DESCRIPTION Filmbox Premium HD
...
...
...

(Note: IP addresses are just an example - don't try them)

 

I use service number 1 (dvb-mediasink) for playback, but service number 4097 (gstreamer - software player) is usually used instead.

For example:

 

#SERVICE 4097:0:16:52E4:C96:3:EB0000:0:0:0:http%3a//208.20.30.61%3a5000/:Filmbox Premium HD
#DESCRIPTION Filmbox Premium HD

 

The ServiceReferenceCode (SRC) is designed for my IPTV channels only - it synchronizes the data from the satellite tuner, in order to copy the EPG events and also the purpose of copying the program icon (picon). Simply put ... the "epg.dat" file is used directly from the Enigma as the source of the EPG-event and the folder with the picons in the Enigma SKIN is used as the source of the picon.

 

At the competitive discussion forum (OpenATV) I wrote out basic info about SRC. However, I do not know whether I may provide an external link to a competing forum here. 

 

Of course, in the case of IPTV, it is possible to invent an SRC code or leave it zero except for the first value (determining the type of service - 4097 = online stream).

For example:

 

#SERVICE 4097:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:http%3a//208.20.30.61%3a5000/:Filmbox Premium HD
#DESCRIPTION Filmbox Premium HD

 

However, in that case, you will lose the picon and EPG data.

 

And it's even more complicated. The SRC code can also be modified according to itself and then upload a suitable icon for this IPTV channel (with the name of the specified SRC in the IPTV channel) to the appropriate SKIN folder. In specific cases, EPG data can also be inserted into an IPTV stream (online video) and then Enigma will automatically "pull" the EPG from the IPTV stream. However, this is an exceptional case and there must be compatibility of the EPG data stream (Enigma vs. IPTV stream). Another option is to use an external source for EPG data, but this is also another topic :).
