    Hello.

    First of all, its the first time i try crossepg.

    I just upgraded to lates BH image and setup crossepg providers for rytec.
    Everything seems to download fine and files are written to the box.
    But i dont get any EPG on any channels.

    Anyone got any idea whats wrong?
    Do i have to setup somewhere in BH what type of EPG i want to use?
    Before I used the "normal" EPG downloader in BH, but now tried crossepg, as rytec is not updated in the old format anymore.

    But for some reason, i can´t get it working.

    Best regards
    Houge

    If you have BH 3.0.4 A
    CrossEPG working.

    You have to config storage device HDD or USB in crossEPG>>>Configure
    (here you can also config Scheduled download)
    You have to download or config provideres for witch you like to have EPG
    >>>XMLTV providers (direct download or config provider/s for download)
    you can also use download now in CrossEPG Menu to download epg from provider/s
    you have config in XMLTV providers e..t.c

    If not working try to delete old epg files in

    /media/hdd/crossepg/delete files here
    or
    /media/usb/crossepg/delete files here

    Download EPG again.

    Hello Matrix10

    I have 3.0.4A installed.
    I have configured storage device as my shared drive i use for recordings.
    I have marked the EPG i want in XMLTV (Rytec´s)
    I have done "Download now" in CrossEPG.
    I can see CrossEPG is working in the lower part of the screen and files are written to the CrossEPG DIR
    I have tried to delete all files in the CrossEPG dir and done all the steps again.

    But still no working EPG.

    Im using remote tuner, so i dont have the option to get the RF signal direct into the box and load EPG that way.

    Best regards
    Houge.

    shared drive ???

    What kind of shared drive ?
    I use the HDD that is in the receiver, and of course I use it for recording.
    you may be seen in the log file, your problem.
    /media/hdd/crossepg/crossepg.log
    (you can delete okd log and make new one)
    this error Failed to parse in my log you can ignore it (similarly this to 02/10/2017 18:02:40 Failed to parse /media/hdd/crossepg/crossepg.tmp.xxxxx for new events)

    crossepg.log

    Hi.

    I have a network share setup on the box and use this for EPG and recordings.
    Then everything is stored on my server and everyone can play the recording, as long as they are on the same network.
    Multi room solution.

    Have you tried to disconnect your satellite signal and remove alle EPG data.
    After that, reload the EPG with out the satellite signal connected, is that working?
    We need to be 100% sure your not getting the EPG data from the satellite signal.

    I tried to load the ITA EPG files, log reads:

    Epg from satellite looks different
    Besides, I was not on 13E and Sky ita but on 19E
    on the German channel when I tested it.

    On SAT EPG there they you do not see names
    [film.comedia]
    [film.azione]

    What else you can try but you have to be fast
    to delete epg.dat
    If you restart enigma 2 go fast to /hdd and delete epg.dat

    but before that, delete all files in

    /media/hdd/crossepg/delete files here
    or
    /media/usb/crossepg/delete files here

    delete epg.dat /hdd with enigma2 restart
    Try a few times if you do not succeed from the first.

    Try to download epg with CrossEpg
    ===========================================
    Otherwise I did not know the reason
    maybe you can install the image again and make an on line image update.
    (do not use backups)
    Test CrossEPG again

    I will test now USB and post results

    Hi Guys,

    I'm having exactly the same problems as above. EPG stopped working in BH 3,03 and I upgraded to 3,04 and updated but still no EPG.
    My EPG files are saved in the internal HD and I can read write no problems but EPG just doesn't function

    Polish EPG was good
    but now they have changed something again
    maybe tomorrow is good again.

    https://forums.openpli.org/topic/37903-poland-complex-changes/page-15#entry779515

    I would ask for problems with individual providers and channels
    Log in to the PLI forum where Rytec team is most active , and ask for a problem.

    ==========================

    @ObiqueRaven

    CrossEPG works on Black Hole 3.0.4
    I do not know if you have a problem with all providers or some specific.

    If you have problems with a specific provider
    then this is not an image problem or CrossEPG.

    CrossEPG works.

    HI Matrix,
    I have tried using the cross EPG on 3.04 but still without success and now I have also noted that the Youtube plugin has stopped playing the picture. The sound is fine. When I come back to normal TV the pic is gone until I switch channel... I assume this must be a bug with the new image.
    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin but without success.

    Btw, it was with all providers on 28,2 I'm trying to download the EPG for SKY UK
