EPG that reads XMLTV files

Post by colonel » Tue Jul 09, 2019 5:20 pm

Not authentic Prevue (but the sample config uses the correct colors)

I needed a scrolling program guide for the cable system I maintain at my job.

It's a C# application (you'll need Visual Studio) that reads schedule info from XMLTV files. I'm sure it wouldn't take much for someone to make it look more like Prevue.

This is neat! I've always wanted to have a scrolling program guide, Prevue or not, that has XMLTV support.

How do you get XMLTV listings into the EPG? I've tried to feed some listings generated with WebGrab+Plus yet nothing seems to be functioning. Is there something I'm missing?

Each channel you want to display needs to be defined in the epg.xml file, in the channels section. I included a sample of the epg.xml file I'm using.

You have to set the file parameter for each channel to be the filename of the XMLTV file containing your listings. channel_id matches each channel with one in the XMLTV file.
