Linking up external TV Guide

Postby va5ja » 18 May 2017, 09:48

Hi guys,

I want to clear this once for all. Is it possible to load external TV guide? I was reading this page http://ss-iptv.com/en/operators/epg and to me it seems that it is possible.
Can someone explain some more how this works, when does it refresh, how do channel names match, is it better xmltv or jtv, etc? I made my own epg according to instructions but it doesn't seem to work.

And sorry if this topic was explained already somewhere.

Last time when I heard that nothing works with external EPG was when operator tried to upload year-old TV Guide.
JTV is much better than XMLTV, but this format is popular in CIS region only, so I don't think that you'll be able to find EPG in JTV.
The names are matched after difficult recognition process, but if you need to have guarantuee that the channels will be matched you need to use our standardized names as in playlist as in EPG file.

Does this mean that I can't add EPG for channels that are not listed here http://ss-iptv.com/en/users/documents/channel-names ?
You probably have no intention of adding ex-yugoslavian channels, especially not from Slovenia. I thought that in such cases I can load external EPG, but seems not.

If channels' names are written the same way as in xmltv, external EPG must work.

Yes, you are right. We've already fixed that. Fix will be in next release.
