XMLTV Import

Howto install and configure

How to install and configure xmltv-import on Enigma2 Pli-images :

When you have installed OpenPli on your box, you can go to Applications, press the green button. Then you'll see a menu, go to extensions and look for xmltv-importer.
Press enter or OK button to start the installation. Now you have the latest version installed, restart Enigma and go to applications and you will notice the label "EPGImport".

Now go into this program, there are some options but first we press blue button to go to the sources. Here you can select with the OK button which EPG data you like to download.
Press green button to save this selection. Now we are back into the first menu where we can change the time when the plugin should start. Do not set this time before 04:00am because I create the EPG data just before 04:00am.
If your box is in deep-standby you could wake it up to start the automatic download, and you can set the amount of days for full descriptions.
Could be helpful if you have selected a lot of epg sources and your box has not much memory you could set this days on 5, so the epg data is loaded for 5 full days + 2 days.

Do not forget to save this config by pressing green button, then you will be prompted to the applications menu.
If you can't wait untill the automatic import, which I can imagine smiley, you can go into the EPGImport panel and press the yellow button for a manual download, you will be asked if you agree by pressing OK.
Now you will see in the main window the amount of events it is processing.
You can press exit to go back to the application panel, it's not needed to wait untill the import is finished.

How to install the plugin on NON-PLI images :

After the installation of another Enigma2 image (Gemini, Ozoon, Newnigma, LT) you have to install a few more files in this image. Download the file python_ipks.zip above and unzip it on your computer.
Also download the above files enigma2-plugin-extensions-xmltvimport_x.x-rxx_mipsel.ipk and enigma2-plugin-extensions-xmltvimport-rytec_xxxxxxxx-rx_all.ipk to your computer.
Use for example DCC to connect to your dreambox. Then copy the following files to the folder /tmp on your dreambox :

For Gemini users :

go to blue panel in Gemini and select filemanager, browse to the folder /tmp and select first the python-zlib file and press the green button to install this package.
Next we select the python-compression for installation then python-html, then python-shell, then we select the xmltv-import plugin and at last the xmltv-import-rytec and install it too.
Now restart Enigma2 and you should be able to activate the EPGimport through the applications panel.
For other users who do not have a filemanager in their image, they can make a Telnet session to the box and install the ipk's by using the command "ipkg install /tmp/python-zlib_2.5.1-ml4_mipsel.ipk"

There are incompatibility problems if you use Gemini 4.5 or higher, keep this in mind !! Reason : Gemini is implementing epg.dat functions.

Known Issue’s :

It can also happen that automatic EPG Import will not function properly after installation, although manual EPG Import works fine,the workaround is to open a telnet session to the dreambox.
Then after login with root, type behind # init 4 this will stop enigma2.
Now change in xmltv.dat the time to import 5 minutes later and change the value random to 0 (you can do this with DCC for example).
In the telnet window type # enigma2.sh
Wait untill import starts and after this is completed and change back the importtime to 4:45 and the random value to 1.
After this you choose restart enigma via menu.
Now wait untill prompt is coming back in telnet session and type behind # init 3
This will start enigma again. (now you have to wait another day to see if the automatic import works)
