View Full Version : No programs showing in TV-guide

2004-02-06, 11:44 PM

I´m having trouble getting the tv-guide to work. When I import the xmltv file I get the tv stations alright but when I try to use the tv-guide I get no listings. What could be wrong? My system date is correct so that shouldn´t be the problem. My thinking is that it shouldn´t matter which driver I have for my PVR 350. Correct? Another thought is if the channels in the xml-file somehow has to correspond with the source channel. Below is part of my xml file with all channels and programs but one are removed. Thankful for some help.

I had simular problems (with and XML file from another site) .. after stripping the file to only one entry and changing different items I noticed that removing the "+0100" from the start / stop times solves it. The epg schedule shows the correct times for now.. I am not sure however if it will work correctly with daylight saving..

Thats strange, it does try to cope with the timezone and should specifically cope with the +0100 format.

In my file an entry would look like this :
<programme start="200401270435 +0100" channel="nick.com" stop="200401270500 +0100">
* *<title>Montana</title>

i think the time format is missing the seconds in my file ..
Importing this does result in errors in the applicable log file.
remove the "+0100" and it works fine..

I dont have the logging here right now, but if you are interested sub, i can post it

Thank you dutchal. The problem was solved by removing the +0100 part. Maybe in a later release this will be solved to avoid overhead to get the guide to work.

Add GMT before the +01:00 may work as well...

The EPG update problems got a hold of me again .. for some reason the data is not read anymore
I fixed a one station one program XML file without the +01:00 for testing purposes, it is read without any error in the configuration log but no data is showing up http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif

anybody any clues what more could be the problem ?

I installed version 0.13 without having used an earlier version. I get the channels from the xmltv file, but not any programs. Here's a sample section:

- <programme start="20040226130000 +0100" stop="20040226140000 +0100" channel="ZDF Theaterkanal">
<title lang="de">FALCO Live - Der Falke ist wieder da</title>

<category lang="de">Theater</category>

remove all the " +0100" and it should work (note the space to remove !)

Can someone try it with the timezone (+0100) still present, and email me the config.exe.log? It may provide some clues.

just mailed you a file with the logging..
