can't get external EPG

Post by e20italia »

i'm trying to load external EPG for a specific channel just to test it but can't get it working at all.
SSIPTV displays a message (for 1 second then auto hide it) saying "Download of Tv guide from the playlist has started. The process may take several minutes" but no epg for that channel is loaded.

Headers for the web server are set up as specified on your guide and tested usng curl without problems.

Please advice.

this is the content of my playlist:

#EXTM3U x-tvg-url="http://77.68.40.210/iptv/epg/guide/gggg.xml" size="big"
#EXTINF:-1 type="stream" group-title="GENERALISTA" tvg-logo="http://xxxxx/picons/canale5.png" tvg-name="Canale5.it",Canale 5
http://xxxxxxx/relay.php?ch=canale5&url ... ch=canale5

this is the content of xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<tv generator-info-name="blablabla" generator-info-url="http://blablabla.org">
<channel id="Canale5.it">
<display-name lang="it">Canale 5</display-name>
</channel>
<programme start="20200217000000 +0100" stop="20200217235959 +0100" channel="Canale5.it">
<title lang="it">TEST</title>
</programme>
<tv>

Hi,

You should use attribute tvg-id="..." instead of tvg-name="..." for linking the channel from xmltv source.

This example works fine:

Code: Select all

#EXTM3U x-tvg-url="http://77.68.40.210/iptv/epg/guide/gggg.xml" size="big"
#EXTINF:-1 type="stream" group-title="GENERALISTA" tvg-logo="http://xxxxx/picons/canale5.png" tvg-id="Canale5.it", Canale 5
http://xxxxxxx/relay.php?ch=canale5&url ... ch=canale5


XMLTV:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<tv generator-info-name="blablabla" generator-info-url="http://blablabla.org">
<channel id="Canale5.it">
<display-name lang="it">Canale 5</display-name>
</channel>
<programme start="20200218000000 +0100" stop="20200218235959 +0100" channel="Canale5.it">
<title lang="it">TEST</title>
</programme>
</tv>

Hi,

Your program item start time has expired, can you update it?

I mean the following:
<programme start="20200218000000 +0100" stop="20200218235959 +0100" channel="Canale5.it">
<title lang="it">TEST</title>
</programme>


You can't see program TEST for "Canale5.it" on the main screen of the app, because of start time and stop time has expired.
