EPG data for only one hour around current time

Recommended Posts

rolf@fuglseth.net

I receives EPG information, but I sees only information for one hour around the current time. I tried to install DVBViewer on a second pc, but got the same problem. I have tried with and without recording service installed.I have the same EPG data inside DVBViewer and in the web interface. Any suggestion?

The DVBViewer and Recording Service are collecting the EPG data which are provided by the TV stations with the TV signal.

So it depends on the TV stations how much EPG they provide.

For impporting EPG from other sources there is Xepg
http://www.a123.dk/
http://www.DVBViewer.tv/forum/topic/20539-xepg/

It allows to import EPG data in the XMLTV format.

Make a tune only timer that everyday tunes a channel on 11.341, i used VH1 classic. But as Tjod writes you could use Xepg. It gives much better EPG. Much more information and a longer period

I had the same problem.

The solution in my case was brand: Data Service in TransEdit.

I've not been able to solve this. I've been looking into the epg.dat file. It's not readable, but it's possible to see some information ex. program names.The file is about 8 mb, that's a lot of information. I'm sure the epg data I need is there, but the data is filtrer in some way when they comes up in the epg window. Any suggestion?

There is no filter which limit how much EPG is displayed for a channel.

 

The only filter in the EPG window limit which channels are visible at all (e.g. favourites only).

 

If EPG is not displayed the EPG ist not available. Either the EPG is not transmitted or the DVBViewer hasn't tuned the transponder where the EPG is transmitted.

 

The RS automatic tunes all transponder for which a channel is present in the channel list. Only for specie EPG formats like Fresat or MediaHighway special configurations my be necessary (but the you need to know exactly which format is used and on which transponder).

For pinpointing the problem I would need a transponder dump. It can be created in the following way:

 

(1) Download TransEdit from the DVBViewer download area. Read the installation instructions in the ReadMe file.

(2) Launch TransEdit. On Settings -> Analyzer tick "Read EIT for other transponders / networks".

(3) Select the transponder list for the satellite position in question on the left side of the main window, select the transponder (frequency) in question on the right side.

(4) Click "Analyze". Wait some seconds.

(5) Right-click the PID list on the right side of the Analyzer Window and click "Select Main SI PIDs" in the context menu.

(6) Click "Start Recording". Record 30 seconds or so.

(7) TransEdit stores the recorded .ts file in the folder shown on the Main Window -> Settings -> Analyzer tab. Zip the file and attach it here, or if it is too large, find a hoster where you can upload it.

 

You may also try to find out yourself how and where the EPG data is available. Usually it is broadcasted in the EIT (Event Information Table), so if you expand the corresponding nodes in the tree view on the left side of the Analyzer Window you should see what is actually provided. Please refer to the TransEdit manual for more information about SI data and particularly the EIT.

Looks like you are only getting the present/following EPG data. Follow the link to the TransEdit manual above and you will understand what I mean. The question is how and where the "schedule" data is provided.

 

BTW: There is a tweak that may help (mere guessing). Stop the Recording Service, launch RSTweaker.bat in the DVBViewer installation directory (launches Tweaker.exe for the Recording Service), find and untick the "Use faster EPG Updater method" checkbox, save, re-start the recording service, trigger an EPG update on the Tasks page of the Web Interface and see what happens. If it doesn't help tick this checkbox again because unticking it may slow down the EPG update considerably.

Why dont you use xepg. As i understand you are a Canal Digital custumer. The EPG from them is terrible.

I use only the Norwegian channels on Canal Digital and that epg is okay.

I saw that possibility yesterday morning and tested it. That did not solve it.

To clarify differences in xmltv.se EPG vs. Canal Digital EPG:

 

Canal Digital description:

Krimiserie. Politistyrken er kommet ud til søen, hvor Dicte har fundet liget af Tina Mølgaard. Alt peger på, at gerningsmanden er Tina Mølgaards mand.

 

xmltv.se description:

Dicte (4) I Wagners fodspor - del 2

Medvirkende: Iben Hjejle (Dicte), Dar Salim (Bo), Tine Krull Petersen (Anne: Lærke Winther. Hovedforfattere: Dorte W. Høgh & Ida Maria Rydén. Episodeforfatter). Instruktør: Kasper Gaardsøe. Producere: Christian Potalivo, Jonas Allen, Peter Bose.
Genre: series/series
Politistyrken er kommet ud til søen, hvor Dicte har fundet liget af Tina Mølgaard. Alt peger på, at gerningsmanden er Tina Mølgaards mand, og Dicte står nu med en drabshistorie i hænderne og vil have sit gamle job på redaktionen tilbage. Bo opsøges af Johans kone, som kræver svar på, hvad der skete den nat, de flygtede, og Johan døde, og det gør Bo meget urolig. Dicte opsøger præsten i Tina Mølgaards landsby, og temaer som jalousi og pædofili gør sig pludseligt gældende i efterforskningen af sagen.
Dato: 2016

Maybe you cant read above, but it shows: Episode number, who plays, who is the writers, detailed description on what its about, and date of creation.

Its a huge difference i details!

Sorry, I've overlooked it. Much quoting, little link ;)

 

To make it short: The transponder only provides present/following EPG, wich means, what is running now and next. Maybe other frequencies deliver more EPG data for the channels in question, but not this one.

The EPG is not from Canal Digital or Viasat. It is from a free service that collect EPG. You need to pair it with the actual channel that you receive from your provider. Example SVT1 could be SVT 1 Sweden. Then you need to pair them in xepg. Again try to read the Help file in XEPG

I should, but right now it dosent work for me. I has been working before. So i run it manually once a week. No big problem.

To automate it you can use buttom number 5, "Automate" in the xepg app. Then you copy the command line. In Recording Service you create a task (run svcoptions.exe as administrator) where you insert the command line. Then you create a Task timer that run the task every day

Again press the Help button in Automate, where you get instructions on how to set it up.

      Ich suche nach einer Möglichkeit, EPG oder Ähnliches auch bei Streams aus dem Internet im DVBV GE zu haben. 
      AKtuell nutze ich unter Android MT-Cast von Sofalabor.de als Zusatzinfo, das bei Internetstreams eine Programminfo rudimentär angezeigen kann.
      Gibt es eine Lösung hierfür?

      Hallo,
       
      nachdem ich nach langer Zeit ein Aktualisierung durchgeführt und die DVBViewer Pro-Version 6.1.5.0 installiert habe, sind in den Aufnahmedaten (TS-Format) leider nicht mehr die EPG-Informationen (Folgenname, Sendungsbeschreibung etc.) enthalten. Diese waren in der bisher von mir genutzen Version (leider weiß ich nicht mehr, welche dies war) enthalten und wurden in den Eigenschaften der Datei abgelegt bzw. im Explorer-Fenster angezeigt (sh. auch Screenshot im Anhang..
       
      Zwar ist es möglich, zusätzlich eine Textdatei mit diesen Infos anzulegen, doch dann muss ich diese Textdatei immer zusammen mit der Aufnahme verschieben/kopieren/ablegen, was insgesamt deutlich weniger komfortabel und übersichtlich ist.
       
      Gibt es daher eine Einstellung-Möglichkeit (die ich übersehen habe), um die EPG-Infos wieder direkt in der Aufnahmedatei einzubinden? Falls ja, wäre ich über Tipps7Hinweise dankbar!
       
      Gruß,

      Bei den Mediaservereinstellungen für Aufnahmen gibt es den Punkt "EPG als NTFS Datei Eigenschaften".
      Ich kann mit Rechtsklick auf die erstellte ts Datei keine EPG Daten oder andere weitere Informationen sehen.
      Es wird natürlich eine txt Datei mit EPG Daten und falls angeklickt auch eine log Datei erzeugt.
      Kann ich die EPG Daten irgendwie aus der ts Datei direkt herausbekommen? Oder was macht diese Auswahl?

      Seit dem neuesten Fritz!Box OS (7.00) meiner 6590 cable, die ja 4 Kabeltuner besitzt, kann der MediaServer per TS Stream kein EPG mehr abholen. Die Tuner der Box und TS Stream unter Konfiguration bleiben beim EPG Update inaktiv, obwohl sich etliche Sender der Fritz!Box Senderliste in meinen Favoriten befinden.
      Das neue Fritz!Box OS hat neu Unterstützung für SAT>IP.
      Füge ich also anstelle des nicht funktionierenden TS Stream ein SAT>IP Device im MediaServer hinzu, empfängt das Device anstelle des EPG für die Sender der Fritz!Box (in den Favoriten), nur den EPG für die ebenfalls im System befindliche KabelTV-Box (Terratec). Und zwar über einen Tuner der Fritz!Box, weil diese ja für das SAT>IP Device aufgewählt wurde!
      Gibt es also jetzt keine Möglichkeit mehr, den EPG für die Kabelsender der Fritz!Box (in Favoriten) über den MediaServer upzudaten?

      Hallo,
       
      hatte letzte Woche Probleme mit zwei Aufnahmen, die nachts bei der Sommerzeitumstellung "verstümmelt" wurden.
      Im EPG wird die zusätzliche Stunde mit einem weißen Balken angezeigt. Super, fand ich, brauche mich um nicht weiter zu kümmern.
      Die mit dem Klick auf "Aufnehmen" in die Timer-Liste übertragene Aufnahmen waren aber beide exakt eine Stunde zu kurz. Da hat meine Nachlaufzeit von 30 Minuten leider nicht gereicht.
      Ich nehme an, dass die Aufnahme über das Aufnahmeende (Uhrzeit) und nicht die Laufzeit bestimmt wird.
      Ein Hinweis für die Nacht der Zeitumstellung oder die Übernahme der korrekten Aufnahmezeit wäre schön.
       
      Ansonsten bin ich mit dem Programm schon lange sehr zufrieden. Die SAT>IP Funktionalität nutze ich mit 4 Empfängern. Funktioniert super!
       
      Meine Programmversion: DVBViewer Pro V6.0.4.0
       
      Benno
