    No EPG import for Black Hole only for Open Black Hole
    Use CrossEPG

    Try telnet 2 commands:

    opkg install python-pkgutil

    opkg install xz

    after I added these packages epgimport seems to work. However when epgimport starts to download for about 60 seconds the enigma spinning wheel (waiting) comes up and you can't do anything.

    I will try crossepg tomorrow. thanks

    There's nothing for editing there
    you install the image and do it as I wrote it.
    Update Rytec sources in the Crossepg panel and use it.

    got it to work thanks. I guess when it is downloading channels you cant do anything else.
    Epg import was downloading on the background but crossepg seems to block any other activity. (sorry never used crossepg before)

    You can use Open Black Hole image with EPG import.If you think it's easier on your box.

    AGAIN, as also Matrix wrote, EPGimport does not work under BH! Obviously, as CrossEPG does not work in background, you should set it to download at night. Simple.
    The alternative, is installing OBH. But d'you know what? I prefer CrossEPG although I use OBH. The reasons are up to you to find.

    I think I am going to stick with BH for a while and live with this...... Can you set cross epg to download only 1 day? cant see any settings for the number of days

    What do you mean by "only 1 day"? Once per day? Of course: enable CrossEPG and you'll see the option about the time for the download.

    Sorry I meant 1 day of EPG. I assume 1 day is faster than 7 (just guessing)

    No, there is no option like that and, in case, it would not be so useful as you believe because only the first time it downloads many days. Afterwards, it does not download the events already existing.
    But all this talking is a nonsense because we all set CrossEPG to download at night. So, a minute or a hour is the same.

    I got it to work is not too bad. I understand that a minute or one hour is the same at night time, but I do not leave the box on at night time so at very boot is a pain..... I have scheduled to run at 11 before I turn the box off....

    You don't need to leave the box on!!! You can leave in standby or also in Deestanby, of course. CrossEPG will wake the box up and then it'll put again in the same state it was before after he completes the task. Can you imagine all people using CrossEPG leaving the box switched on?

    That means it's already installed.
    And you do not need to reinstall the XZ package
