Description

Current behavior:
Watching TV is working fine, but the EPG is missing.

Expected behavior:
Having an EPG in addition to the TV stream.

When exporting a E2 channellist using http://tvhip:9981/playlist/e2/, I will get a list with entries like this:

#SERVICE 1:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:http://tvhip:9981/stream/channelid/238820178?profile=pass:Das Erste
#DESCRIPTION Das Erste HD

Now I add the missing values to the file:

#SERVICE 1:0:19:283D:3FB:1:C00000:0:0:0:http://tvhip:9981/stream/channelid/238820178?profile=pass:Das Erste
#DESCRIPTION Das Erste HD

Now the EPG appears. Also, the receiver will update its clock.

The entries have to be in this format: FavoriteType(usually 1):Flags(usually 0):ServiceType:ServiceID:TransponderID:NetworkID:Namespace:0:0:0:

Is it possible for tvheadend to have this fields filled or won't they be present, if not tuned to that certain channel?

Client should detect those values automatically from the MPEG-TS stream when only one service is present in it. TVH can serve multiple services in one channel, so we should not provide this detailed source information to the client (it's the motivation why TVH does not fill those values).

The only thing that we can do at this moment (untested), is to turn on the rewrite functions (including SID number) in the pass muxer and fill the anonymous values to the exported e2 playlist when the 'pass' rewrite capabilities are on.

It really would be good if TVheadend exported values there so EPG is possible on Enigma2 boxes.
The values doesn't need to be same as satellite values it can be internal TVheadend values linked to EPG name.
For now i am using this for Engima2 boxes and this allows me to get EPG from TVheadend server.

Just to clarify this is written for IPTV but it works with TVheadend server with any source.

Have you tried to turn on the SID rewrite (value 1) in the 'pass' streaming profile and fill values 1 for ServiceID:TransponderID:NetworkID ? The namespace should be probably DVB-T (hash is EEEE0000), so something like:

#SERVICE 1:0:19:1:1:1:EEEE0000:0:0:0:http://tvhip:9981/stream/channelid/238820178?profile=pass_with_sid_rewrite:Das Erste

That doesn't work on DVB-C source atleast and i have added some free streams available on internet and they don't have that information. If TVheadend exported in same way like e2m3u2bouquet does it's possible to export xmltv and bouquet and get EPG and logos on each channel. It works fine with e2m3u2bouquet but can't see any reason why TVheadend not should have this builtin.

Enigma2 boxes uses this information to get EPG for the channels.

#SERVICE 1:0:19:1:1:1:EEEE0000:0:0:0:

That information is same for all channels from TVheadend and that won't work.

Checked now it's #SERVICE 1:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0: on all channels.

Full export for a few channels with TVheadend and all rewrite options is on.

And for EPG Import addon it adds a channel file that looks like this.

<channel id="ef3b53da7d78d85162b086add62d810d">1:0:1:84d0:f258:a811:0:0:0:0:http%3a//example.m3u8</channel> <!-- SVT1 HD -->

channel id = name of the epg that will be used for each channel.
