Description

Hello,

for some channels the EPG shows just an entry with 24 hours duration for the current and the next day.
Description of the entries are in spanish....

Normally the channels should get their EPG in first place from OTA, in second place I added an external xmltv-grabber.
But the entries of this grabber are fine, especially they don't contain descriptions in spanish :-)

I wrote this already in the forum, but I saw in epgdb.v2, that the spanish description originates from the OTA-EPG.

Maybe a simple workaround could be that all EGP-entries with a given duration (e.g. > 23 hours) are dismissed.

Is the problem for whole mux (for all services in one mux)? You can turn off OTA EIT in the mux settings - 'EPG scan' field.

I think this is due to your EPG source. See the attached screenshot from my BBC channel.

You can increase also the priority of your External EPG grabber from Configuration / Channel EPG /EPG Grabber modules and while the priority is higher for the External grabber than the OTA one, tvh will use the External (this is how I have this set and Works perfectly)

The problem exists for 4 news channels, all using different muxes:
- Arte 10743,75
- Arte HD 11493,75
- BBC News 11597
- BBC News HD 11229
- France 24 11538
- Sky News 12603,75

To ilustrate it more clearly:

11.10.2017
12.10.2017
current day --> 11.10.2017 (!) 13.10.2017 (!)
next day --> 12.10.2017 (!) 14.10.2017 (!)
13.10.2017 (/) 15.10.2017 (/)
14.10.2017 (/) 16.10.2017 (/)
15.10.2017 (/)

@David jrm: I am using the external EPG grabber as a fallback option which should only be used if no OTA-EPG is available.
So the OTA EPG has got a higher priority than the external EPG. Unfortunately it is not possible to deactivate the OTA-EPG for individual channels, just for the whole mux as proposed by Jaroslav.

I don't know, maybe for some unknown reasons EPG data for the named channels can not be received and alternatively just a general description of the channel is used?

  • Status changed from New to Invalid

There's also 'Ignore EPG (EIT)' field per service (expert view). It is editable only through the edit form (click on edit in the service grid). Closing as invalid.
