XMLTV Export creates HTML page instead of XML (solved)

Added by A AAA 5 months ago

There was an xmltv feature request and a bug, so xmltv export as xml should work by now: tvheadend.org/issues/5472

Unfortunately the following URLs still create HTML pages instead of XML. Therefore the XMLTV can't be used e.g. in Jellyfin:

same result:

yourIP:9981/xmltv/channels/channels.xml
yourIP:9981/xmltv/channels
yourIP:9981/xmltv/

Unfortunately yourIP:9981/playlist/channels only provide channels without EPG information

How can I fix the xmltv export so that using the URL within Jellyfish shows the EPG information as in TVHeadend available?

Seems to work for me.

$ curl -v -o out.txt http://192.168.1.5:9981/xmltv/channels

GET /xmltv/channels HTTP/1.1

Thank you very much (it was probably a browser issue)
However file is still incompatible with Jellyfin's xmltv. Jellyfin's assign channels displays nothing. No epg shown there when it points to file or to http source
edit Jellyfin's Mapping feature is supposed to be a matter of size. When I shrinked file from 21 MB to 1 MB I was able to map channels. After this original file or HTTP Source worked
