EPG Refresh or EPG Import? (Virmin EPG)

    Can someone tell me which one is better in terms of reliability in displaying the correct EPG for the channels? (From experience i have noticed EPG importer to display incorrect EPG for Sky Sports)

    The issue i had previously with EPG Refresh is it did not display all the EPG for all the virmin channels.

    I am guessing this may have happened due to my EPG Settings so i want to ask (DSayers in particular) what are the correct settings for EPG Refresh?

    The VM EIT EPG is fine. This is transmitted on certain transponders in the background with the video feed. Set a timer to zap to VM previews on ch 100 early hours every morning and the full EPG will be downloaded direct from VM.

    set a timer as above and you should be fine.

    If you want to use epgrefresh here are my settings

    You need to download epg refresh from plugins

    I thought this would be the case however when i go to plugins and green button to download it does not load anything.

    The plugins are disabled on older versions of ViX. You need to update to a newer version.

    I have a zgemma h2, any version you would suggest or can I use tspanel to get epgrefresh?

    You could try tspanel goto linux sat support addons and try in there.

    Alternatively set a autotimer to zap to vm preview channel every morning
