Catch up for non EPG channels.

Post by DjBS »

Hello!

So i have one major problem.
My provider support few channels 7 days back catchup.
The problem is that, SSIPTV can't find the program guide for the channel, so i can't chose show.
Is there, any option, i can catchup channels without program? Something like empty program and just hours on the list?

Best regards!

Unfortunately, it isn't possible. But we have EPG for thousands of channels, so I doubt that SS IPTV is really missing EPG for your channel, I suppose the real problem is that channel names in your playlist are incorrect.

Hello, i'm back again for this.

There are now more channels with catchup, but because of the EPG i can't rewind them too :(

Well, i tried all kind of names and id's. with spaces, without spaces, dashes, slashes. Everything.
They are mostly Bulgarian channels. Is there any list that i can see what is supported?
I remember before there was a list in the website, but i can't find it now. :(
Or i should give you the list with the channels that i'm searching about?

For now there is only one temp fix. I choose Cartoon Network (because everything in the program is in 30 mins), and set external logo and name. I Can't see the proper program, but i can chose hour that i want to play.

Best regards

Hi,
as I can see, we have Bulgarian EPG for CN (see screenshot attached)
I suppose that your real problem is incorrect country code in app's settings.

Hey, i think you didn't understand me well.
I'm using cartoon network for those channels that don't have EPG.
Some examples for non EPG channels are 7/8 TV, Vivacom Arena, Investigation Discovery, Max Sport 1, 2, 3 and 4, Sport+, F+, TV+, BoxTV, BG Music Channel, The Voice, City TV, Планета HD (its different from Планета only) and so on... And because of they don't have EPG (or maybe wrong id), I put CN so I can choose the hour that i want to shift back.

I see. We've added EPG for 7/8 TV, Max Sport 1, 2, 3, 4 and Планета HD (BG) (do not confuse with Планета HD). There has already been EPG for Investigation Discovery.
Unfortunately we cannot add EPG for other channels from your list at the moment.

There is enough simple way to add EPG to this channels by adding external EPG to playlist.

p.s.
Планета HD is not Russian channel РТР Планета its a Bulgarian "pseudo erotic musical channel"

I would not say that this way is really simple.

With correct software is very simple even automated.

Else, add option to PUSH EPG to your servers, if its possible.

Hey Eugene! Thanks for these channels. Its something :)
Is there any place that i can see all EPG ids? For all available countries. Maybe i'm really messing some ids.
