(Closed) EPG: Definitions of xml files

Post by Amatøren » Thu May 03, 2018 9:21 am

In stead of increase the number of fields of EPG files (now it is two), why not make an option for loading all files (*.xml) in the xmltv directory?

Something like this:

These fields for remote XMLTV links.
As for local files, they should be picked up as it was in dvblink, juts put xml(s) to appropriate folder

Yes, I know the directory has to be C:\ProgramData\DVBLogic\TVMosaic\data\xmltv (for Windows other defined by your link)

I only used a picture (and modified it) from another member for illustration of my idé.

My current understanding is that ALL files in the XMLTV directory are picked up AND additionally the two downloadlinks are also respected (EPG files downloaded from Web and loaded to Mosaic) - correct?

By the way: In DVBLink it was possible to add more than two download links to EPG sources - I am currently using five different ones for different channels there. Is there a workaorund? Why limited to two now?

And another thing: I think *.xz files are still not handled - was also a problem I reported in DVBLink (where I found myself a workaround that is not working anymore in TVMosaic).

Yes, we are limited to two at the moment.
xz links should be handled correctly. If this is not the case, please, send the link to our support team and we will make it work.
