No UK Freeview HD Channels on EPG

Added by Jools Clop 15 days ago

Hi, Just set up TVHeadend on a Synology NAS running DSM 6.2. Tvheadend version 4.3~c6bb43d (2021-10-25T20:23:08+0000).
I've tried everything but just don't see (or understand) how I can get EPG data for Freeview HD channels. Other channels are all OK . I have had to set up the muxes fior HD manually because the wizard didnt pick them up but now I cant get any EPG data for them. I've seen guides that show EPG Grabber modules tabs in the GUI but the version I have doesnt show that, there appears no way to set the grabber? (see attached .png). If I set Configuration-Muxes-EPGmodule ID to UK Freeview it still does not pull EPGData for HD channels.
Can someone explain how I get the Freeview EPG data please or else as I have a Schedules Direct account how I can utilize that in TVHeadend.
Thanks

Change the view level to expert & you should see the grabber modules tab.

I get the freeview HD epg data fine so it seems strange you're not.

Thanks for the reply. Ive found the settings you described and setup UK Freeview as the EPG,however what now? I re-run "Trigger OTA Grabber" but nothing has changed, under the tab EPG Grabber Channels there is nothing at all and no option appears available to populate it.
Sorry to be so dumb but this is really hard to understand.

Have you mapped the channels? Do you see them under Configuration -> Channels / EPG -> Channels?

Hi
Yes they are mapped and all channels are listed but some have EPG data some have bits of EPG data and some have none at all. Under the Config -Channels/EPG -Channels tab there is an EPG source tab but nothing is selectablke in the drop down menu?

Enable the Freeview EPG Grabber Module in Configuration > Channel / EPG > EPG Grabber Modules.

As per picture you just need EIT and Freeview enabled for UK
