      [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
    • EPGIMPORT plugin: this is the main engine that does the epg assignment when bouquets are created, available to download from plugins feed.
    • FTP client: a good commonly used one is filezilla but there are loads out there that will do the job.

    • Enigma2 Box IP Address for FTP: To find your IP Address go to Menu-> Setup-> Network-> Device Setup-> Lan Setup (WLan option if that is used)-> Adapter settings
      - Note that if you have DHCP set to Yes then your IP Address may change periodically, if you want a static IP address then you need to change the settings.
    • Enigma2 Box userID and password: This varies from box to box and image to image so google is your friend here. default is generally root and blank
    Installing the Plugin:
    • Download the .ipk file from the github repo (at time of writing this was v0.6,1)
      [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
    • Open a FTP session from your laptop/device to your Enigma2 box
    • FTP the .ipk to the /tmp folder
    • Either install it from the box GUI or VIA SSH using one of the below options depending on image used
    - OpenATV this will be Press Blue Button -> Plugins -> Choose IPK Installer -> (3) Memory /tmp -> (1) Install Extensions -> select the IPK (OK) and press green
    - OpenVix this will be ‘Menu -> Setup -> ViX -> Install local extension
    - SSH/Telnet to the box and run opkg install /tmp/enigma2 [TAB – to autocomplete path]
    - note if you have openwebif Terminal plugin installed you can use that to run opkg install command also.
    • Reboot you box to complete installation.

    Configuring the Plugin:
    • Open your plugins menu, (Green button as shortcut) there should now be a plugin named ‘IPTV Bouquet Maker (IPTV for Enigma2 – E2m3u2bouquet plugin)’
    • Open this plugin.
    • Set the configuration options as desired, Below is a screenshot of the default setup and an explanation of each field
    • E2m3u_LI.jpg
    • - Automatic bouquet update (schedule): This will set a cron job that will rerun the script at a set interval
    • - Update interval (hours): This will set the frequency with which the script will be rerun
    • - Provider: Choose who your IPTV provider is, check
      [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
      for the latest list of supported providers
    • - Username: Self explanatory, can be obtained from your provider
    • - Password: Self explanatory, can be obtained from your provider
    • - All IPTV type: This sets the stream type to IPTV, Default is DVB stream types for live channels and IPTV for VOD, all IPTV type streams may be required if you are unable to record channels.
    • - Multi VOD: If you want your VOD to be broken up into seperate boquets based on the grouping from your provider set this to enabled, WARNING - if your provider has a large VOD section this can create a massive amount of bouquets and cause your box to appear slow when navigating the epg
    • IPTV bouquet position: This allows you to place ITV Bouquets above current bouquets or bottom
    • - Create all channels bouquet: When set to Yes this will create an additional single bouquet which will contain all the m3u contents
    • - Download picons: if the channel has a tvg-logo url set in the m3u file then this option will download it for the stream, this depends on your provider having it set on their panel
    • - Picon save path: This is the path to which the downloaded picons should be saved
    • Press the green button to save the configuration
    • Open the plugin again if it closed and press the yellow button to run the install of the provider file.
    • The spinner on the LHS upper part of the screen will appear
    • If you have an override.xml file then when the bouquet update is happening you may see the spinner graphic and the box ui may be unresponsive for around a minute
    • Downloading Picons (especially on first run) takes a long time. Your box will show the spinner graphic and the ui will be unresponsive while this happening.
    Assigning the epg
    • Open epgimport from plugins menu
    • EPG Import.jpg
    • Press the Blue button to open the epgimport sources menu
    • There should now be a new option in there that matches your provider name
    • This option can often be found at the bottom of the list of sources.
    • epg importer_LI.jpg

    • Select this source and press the Green button to save the changes.
    • Now back at the EPG import configuration screen press the yellow button to run a manual import
    • You will be prompted to confirm and then the import will begin.
    • The import should show a large number of events being imported for each selected option and will take a couple of minutes, you can now leave this screen.
    • This import should be scheduled for daily update if source files are updated daily.

    Common Questions
    • The IPK and script developers have a help thread check there for common errors -
      [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
    • Can I hide bouquets or channels that I do not use? - Yes check out
      [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
      ln features in v0.5
    • My epg is not showing or is only showing some epg entries - Check with your provider that they have epg up to date and you have run epgimport as above.
    • My Provider is not listed can I still use it? - only supported providers can be used with the IPK but you can still use the underlying python script as described on
      [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
      or your provider can submit their details to Suls via the Supplier form
      [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
    • I moved my streams/channels/bouquets around afterwards with echanneliser but they are back the same shortly afterwards - This happens if you have suls ipk set to run on a scheduled basis as it recreates them in the same order based override and provider files.
    • I don't see an entry in the cron tab for my schedule - this is because the IPK doesn't use cron it wakes itself to rerun the scripts.
    • my m3u file is empty - Double check that your username and password are entered correctly taking care of caps and number requirements. Also check that the sub is working by downloading the m3u from a web browser as a test.

    More info here plus if you're provider isn't in the list and they provide a url epg.xml link you can use the script method.

    Please note no naming providers in this thread and no pms regarding providers as I won't reply.

    If you have both m3u and epg.xml url you can use the script method. The plugin works pretty good I've tested with a few providers now and been working fine. Just one thing to note epg is down to the providers as some was almost full others just provided uk epg.

    Just wish there was a better way to organise VOD bouquets I'm stuck. There is too many series bouquets ie The Simpson's 1 to 8 in separate bouquets it would be good if we could combine them into one

    Total noob here but I've just purchased a i55 box and I have iptv . The provider says he doesn't have the enigma 2.0 script which I believe is needed to get the epg? But he states he has the M3u list with there personal script added . I'm I able to set it up and still get a working epg does anyone know? Sorry for the question

    There are a few ways to get epg into bouquets mate, m3u scripts, other scripts and xtream editor,

    Hi all,

    Apologies for a basic question. From my IPTV provider, I have got just a url which downloads an m3u file. No username or password or any other information. Is that enough to get me going with these instructions. If yes, what do I need to do after I install the ipk file?

    Can anyone help? Ive got this all set up and working with my provider but i can customise anything as when i run the script it doesnt make me an .xml file in home/root folder for me to then customise??

    Is it putting it somwhere else or am i being thick? Eveything else is working apart from this bit.

    If using v0.6.1 or above the xml now is in /etc/enigma2/e2m3u2bouquet so it saves in setting backups
