    As some of you might have already seen on reddit and/or another post here on Techkings, I've written a catchup plugin for Enigma2 some time ago, and I've been refining it ever since.

    You can find it in Github, it supports both Xtream-Codes API as well as VAPI.

    Please give it a whirl, and let me know how you like it, if at all.

    Thanks for the speedy reply buddy and it does look like a bad file. Any reason why a simple "wget" would pull a bad file?

    I had that report before, but I need a little bit more to go on and try a fix or workaround. Can you answer the following, and feel free to reply to be directly, as I'm not sure mentioning IPTV providers is allowed here:
    What provider have you seen this happening on?
    Do you have multiple providers? If yes, does it happen on all of them, or just some?
    What does it mean to be off by 1h: is the listing on the selection off by 1h, but the programmed mapped correctly, or is the listing correct but then it plays a program 1h off? Both? Please provide a comprehensive example.

    Right ok ive just tested it again by using itv channel and going back to yesterday. Now the listings are all in the correct order but the times are out by 1 hour . Ie if i click on the 2nd episode of coronation st at 9.30 pm which should be listed as 8.30pm it streams the 1st episode which is listed at 8.30 which should be listed at 7.30 pm . I thought i could live with that because ill just add hour on but the problem is the next programme starts 10 . pm so if i wanted to watch the coronation st that is listed at 9.30pm the next programme would have to start at 10.30pm but it doesnt it starts at 10.00pm. I hope you understand my explanation its difficult to explain writing it down. As for my iptv im not allowed to mention it on here.

    Play around with the new offset settings I've added (6.0.4u version) and see how they help (left/right to select values, both negative and positive). Please report back, namely with the values you've used to fix, if any. Also, PM me the provider name, as I really want to try and take a look at their data.

    You mean the catchup only plays for 20-30 seconds?

    Some providers don't like to supply catchup over DVB/1/TS streams, so make sure you have the service type as IPTV and the stream type as m3u8 (default in the latest versions). If that's not the issue, send me a private message with the provider name and I'll ask around to see what gives.

    Cant get this to work at the moment,
    I have on my iphone a a channel that has catchup and plays fine through the GSE IPTV catchup feature,
    but on my zgemma, i've assigned the plugin a hotkey button, press the button on the channel, it lists the epg/catchup for that channel, i then go to a program that i know works on my iphone, it then tries to load as i get the [Hz] and the name of the program, but i just get a black screen,
    i've tried going into the menu and changing the type etc to gstreamer, and extplayer, iptv, bascially tried them all, and changed the format to ts as well

    Any ideas?

    I can't guess: what are you using, openatv, openvix, other? The 2 basic settings I'd try would be service type DVB with stream type TS, and service type IPTV with stream type M3U8. If neither works, I'd talk to your provider and ask why. Note that for IPTV, stuff can be broken if service-app settings were messed with. Also, I'd try to go forward a bit on the stream, sometimes the servers don't really cooperate.

    You can state to them exactly what you're stating to me, that catchup doesn't seem to work on your enigma2 box, even though it should, and it's not an issue on your network as GSE IPTV works? Or try and join one of the Telegram groups that can help - I won't state them here, as I'm not sure that's allowed.

    What's v0.8.3? Only thing close seems to be Suls, but that seems to be on v0.8.0 under development (I might take a look at it this weekend, for catchup markings, as the rest of the things are there already).

    The Github URL on the top post had been edited to the current one, and should work. The ones linking to reddit and other posts might get you nowhere.
