#1139804 [Poland] Complex changes

Posted by doglover on 18 December 2019 - 00:13

Changed the grab again to pl.canalplus.com



#1128284 [Poland] Complex changes

Posted by doglover on 21 November 2019 - 09:14

All downloaded from the same website. (pl.canalplus.com)

The schedule seems to have disappeared from the website.  Correct me if I am wrong.


Used another grab site.



#1114452 Out of action

Posted by doglover on 16 October 2019 - 07:01

Yesterday evening, I have broken my right arm.

Typing with only my left is a nightmare.


The collection of EPG will not be hampered.  This is  automatic.

However large edits are difficult.

Grabber repaired (change on the website)

New schedule is uploaded.



#1102241 Missing EPG on Scandinavian channels

Posted by doglover on 14 September 2019 - 14:25

Channels file corrected.

The service ref was present, but linked to a now not existing anymore EPGref.



#1098082 Italian EPG - Sky

Posted by doglover on 4 September 2019 - 10:30

The last couple of weeks I am struggling with the EPG for the Italian Sky channels.

The RAI, Tivu and Mediaset channels are OK.  But the Sky channels (except the movie channels) pose a problem.


The published EPG for the Sky channels seemed to come all from the same source.  They all have the same descriptions, and other peculiatities in common.

It looks like this source (probably Sky itself)  is going off-line, comes back a few minutes later.   This happens all through the day.

The same can be observed when using the OpenTV reader on the sat itself.  Sometimes no EPG is present, while 15 minutes later there is a full set of EPG present.


It is really annoying.  I have to check the grab each morning, and when too much channels are not collected, I simply restart the grab and most of the times it is OK then.  However sometimes, I have to restart it again 15 minutes later.

The same happens when collecting EPG with the OpenTV reader.


f.i. this morning the update for Italian Sky was updated at 10h15 (GMT+2).

Please take this into account when updating the Italian channels.



#1096934 [Spain] Changes in Spanish channels

OK.  Done.



#1096818 [Spain] Changes in Spanish channels

Posted by doglover on 30 August 2019 - 17:44

<!-- PT --> <!-- 30.0W --> <channel id=" Cubavision.pt "> 1:0:1:834:6:6:CE40000:0:0:0: </channel><!--  CUBAVISION  -->

Added.  Also a grab for it, since a grab was not even existing.

So I wonder where your mix-up came from.  Left the EIT and MHW EPG on?


However, the Portugese grab will you do no good:


On mag.sapo.pt I got this

<programme start="20190901210000 +0100" stop="20190902010000 +0100" channel="Cubavision.pt">
    <title lang="pt">CUBAVISION</title>
    <desc lang="pt">CUBAVISION.</desc>

On NOS.pt this is given:

<programme start="20190831000000 +0100" stop="20190831080000 +0100" channel="Cubavisión Internacional">
    <title lang="pt">Informação Não Disponibilizada Pelo Canal</title>
    <sub-title lang="pt">[entretenimento]</sub-title>

I understand enough Portugese, to get the picture.


But this will not resolve the mixing of the Spanish and Portugese schedules.  It is the same service ref.  So if you import both the Spanish and Portugese files, you still will get the mix-up


VH1Classic.eu - grab removed from the Portugese file.

The correct schedule is in the General - Misc file.

National Geographic on 5W, DTT and 13E presents a wrong programming, it seems an hour in advance, but I'm not sure.




The schedules on movietele and guidasky both the HD version and and the DTT are from what I can see the same.

I am grabbing the movietele version.  So....


FOX on DTT and 5W

they have a different programming than fox hd on hotbird, , the right one is that of hotbird




The channels are linked to the same schedule (taken from movietele).  But when I check it with the schedule on guidasky it is the same schedule.
So, I do not know what I can change.

Line 7698: <!-- DVB-T --><channel id="Fox.it">1:0:1:143E:3B6:110:EEEE0000:0:0:0:</channel><!-- Fox -->
Line 8049: <!-- 13.0E --><channel id="Fox.it">1:0:19:379D:14B4:FBFF:820000:0:0:0:</channel><!-- Fox HD -->
Line 8050: <!-- 13.0E --><channel id="Fox.it">1:0:19:37A6:14B4:FBFF:820000:0:0:0:</channel><!-- Fox HD -->
Line 8132: <!-- 5.0W --><channel id="Fox.it">1:0:1:143E:3B6:110:DDE0000:0:0:0:</channel><!-- Fox -->


Mediaset extra 2 - 1:0:1:1E:7918:217C:EEEE0000:0:0:0   -   1:0:1:1E:7918:217C:DDE0000:0:0:0

It has the same programming as

Mediaset Extra - 1:0:1:9:1770:110:820000:0:0:0



Channels linked to the MediasetExtra.it schedule




PS: I will rerun the Italian grab again.  Maybe there was something wrong on the websites before.

#1073267 Only import EPG for channels in Bouquets - change requested

Posted by doglover on 24 June 2019 - 15:34

This imports now.  (and the filtering seems to work)


Only one side effect.  In the log there are a bunch of:

Serviceref not in bouquets: 1708553142999056432
Serviceref not in bouquets: 388435601010327600

Serviceref not in bouquets: 1261007998748590128
Serviceref not in bouquets: 897905197187465264

These are complete useless.  Previous they showed the serviceref.  And they could be usefull.

However these are of no use at all.

So either you make these "human readeable" or just do not list them at all.



#1073155 Only import EPG for channels in Bouquets - change requested

Posted by doglover on 24 June 2019 - 13:21

In the past, I had much reports of crossepg importing wrong EPG for a few channels.

Inspection of the channels list always revealed in such cases there were 2 entries in the channel list with the same SID:TID:NID but a different Namespace.


Therefore my conclusion:  crossepg doe not take into account the Namespace.  Of course the above explanation from LraiZer can cause this too.  And my conclusion was jumping to conclusions.


I have to admit, I did not see any reports lately of this kind of error.




PS:  Everybody following this forum, would know my feelings about crossepg.  And they are not helped by something like the above.

Crossepg is good for reading EPG from OpenTV on 28.2E and 13E.

Importing XMLTV files is a later add-on, which leaves to be desired.
