WooshBuild newbie - setting up my IPTV provider and epg for first time

HI

I bought a zgemmah2s around 4-6 weeks ago and I can't seem to get it to work, I only want to use IPTV and not connecting any coax cables to the back, this is what I did:

downloaded to USB nightly build OpenATV (currently using a Jan 2021 build)
installed it
followed the rest of WooshBuild Infinity - For ALL Enigma2 boxes
Setup SKYQ skin

my provider says to run the following on zgemma which I did:

wget -O /etc/enigma2/iptv.sh 'http://URL_REMOVED/get.php?username=USERRNAME_REMOVED&password=PASSWORD_REMOVED&type=enigma22_script&output=ts' && chmod 777 /etc/enigma2/iptv.sh && /etc/enigma2/iptv.sh

This outputs:

Code:
Saving to: ‘/etc/enigma2/userbouquet.IPTV__tv_.tv’

/etc/enigma2/userbo 100%[===================>] 630.04K  1.65MB/s    in 0.4s  

2021-01-13 13:18:47 (1.65 MB/s) - ‘/etc/enigma2/userbouquet.IPTV__tv_.tv’ saved [645161/645161]


[+]Creating Folder for iptv and rehashing...

rm: can't remove '/usr/bin/enigma2_pre_start.sh': No such file or directory

writing to the file.. NO NEED FOR REBOOT

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


<e2simplexmlresult>

    <e2state>True</e2state>

    <e2statetext>reloaded bouquets</e2statetext>

</e2simplexmlresult>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<e2simplexmlresult>

    <e2state>True</e2state>

    <e2statetext>reloaded bouquets</e2statetext>

</e2simplexmlresult>



if I then press favourites button I can access the IPTV channels
if I then press EPG I see a list of channels but it doesn't show what's on/next etc.

I need help getting the programs to show on the EPG

You will need to find out if your provider has egp data for his feeds,

Normally, you would need to make sure epgimport(er) is installed on your box, onvce installed, press menu -> setup -> Epg -> EPG Importer and then press blue button.

Now tick any iptv source that is listed and press green button

Now press the yellow button to download the epg, it will take a few minutes

Just ask your provider for details ie username password url and use jedi as that populates a pretty good epg

I thing you also need to install and run e2m3u2bouquet
or install jedimaker and add your playlists.txt file like:
replace type=enigma22_script with type=m3u
Code:
http://your.iptv.com:8080/get.php?username=user&password=password&type=m3u&output=ts

HI

i installed jedimaker and added
http://your.iptv.com:8080/get.php?username=user&password=password&type=m3u&output=ts
to playlist.txt

it then imported and gave me a list of categories to import, i selected all the ones i want.

the EPG still only shows channel names and not whats on now/later
i then went to Setup > EPG > and on sources ticked off my provider and saved it, i then went back and pressed yellow to import.
it imported ten's of thousands of events

i still don't have anything on EPG showing whats on now/later

@chrisduk112 , when in epg importer did you also select rytec uk Sat/Virgin xmltv tick the the 6 items and save.
also have you set up actuall EPG in menu \ setup\ EPG \ Setup.

HI

Yes i did, i since found using the sky skin and not skyQ actually fixed it for me but since importing everything the zgemma2 just keeps crashing so i think i'll just find another box as this one i bought for testing before i bought a better box.

welcome to suggestions for a better box thats futureproof (4K etc).

Are you also importing VOD and series with jedimaker? I would not do that it will take ages to inport use Xstreamity for VOD and Series just use jedimaker for live. you can just copy your playlist.txt file into etc\ enigma2\ ctreamity folder to add details.
