Topics I've Started

OWIF - Bouquet Editor

5 April 2019 - 07:34

The bouquet editor in OWIF does not want show bouquets when in that  a service exist which starts with 5001 or 5002  (or at least on my receiver)

Now these days, a service ref starting with 5001/5002 is common.


f.i. the regional channels in Flandres cannot be opened with gstreamer.  The serviceapp is needed.  And of course the corresponding 5002 service ref.


Can this be fixed pls.



The end of Rytec EPG?

31 March 2019 - 13:26

It is no secret that the EPG is grabbed from all kinds of websites using Webgrab++


While we received help for writing SiteIni's for difficult webpages from the users on the Webgrab++ forum in the past (see http://www.webgrabplus.com/forum), has this now ground to a halt.
Reason: We are a so called commercial provider of EPG.  And they will not engage in help for commercial purposes.


If we ask for help, some of postings will be:  I can do it, but I wont tell you.
They do not actually say it this way, but the result is the same.

(They post a sample grab from that website, but do not want to share the actual SiteIni.)

An example of this can seen in:  http://www.webgrabpl...brs-and-mojtvhr


We will continue to provide EPG as long as we can.  As long as I can write the SiteIni's myself.

Actually parsing a website is not that difficult.  The problem is in obtaining the correct webpages.  Just because you can see it in a browser does not guarantee you you can download that webpage.  Finding the solutions for this escapes me more and more, since I am not an internet specialist.


I am posting this, because I feel very low now and disappointed.





DAZN (Germany and Italy)

18 February 2019 - 09:07

Via PM several users asked to include a schedule for DAZN.  (both Italian and German versions)

First of all the published schedules are a mess.


f.i last weekend, Italian version:

17/02/2019 15:00:00 title Empoli - Sassuolo
17/02/2019 15:00:00 title Zona Gol
17/02/2019 15:00:00 title Lecce - Livorno
17/02/2019 15:00:00 title Cosenza - Cremonese
17/02/2019 15:00:00 title Lille - Montpellier

All the same starting time.  Yes I know DAZN is broadcasted via IPTV, and they are separate streams.

But on the sat, only one can be watched.

On the Italian version, I know it will be the Serie A match.  But how do I determine this automatically.  The schedule does not say.


I tried yesterday, (yes, Sunday afternoon) the whole afternoon to make sense out of this.

Succeeded to a point, that I started grabbing multiple days.  (I tried first with only one day)  This failed miserably.

The problem being, that DAZN has days with only one broadcast per day.  Or even days with no broadcast at all.

This messes up all the logic I tried to program into the grabber.  The result was a terrible mismatched schedule.


I came to the conclusion, I have to give up on this one, until a more comprehensive schedule is published somewhere.  This holds for both the Italian and German versions of the channel.




Wet van bhoud van ellende - extplayer vs, gstreamer

16 February 2019 - 14:32

Omdat ik de streams van de Vlaamse regionale zenders wou bekijken was ik verplicht om de de service app te installeren.  En extplayer3 te activeren.

Deze streams geven nu perfect beeld en geluid.



Nu stel ik vast dat een aantal MKV's heel schokkend afspelen.  Echt om niet naar te kijken.

Diezelfde MKV's spelen perfect af met gstreamer  (dus wanneer extplayer3 is uitgeschakeld)

Een aantal MKV's spelen perfect af op beide players


Mijn besluit:  De wet van behoud van ellende wordt hier duidelijk ge├»llustreerd.


Mijn vraag:  Heeft iemand anders dit ook vastgesteld?


Mijn config:  OpenPLi 7.0 zowel een HD2400 als een Zgemma StarS

Film Europe HD (English)

11 February 2019 - 10:16

The website for the english schedule of Film Europe is empty for the last week.

Since it was the only source I can find (except TVV and CD), I have a problem providing this schedule.


Has somebody found an alternative for this schedule?
