Server 1.5.1 available (further EPG improvements)


So far, the EPG data has been analyzed and new entries have been added after each channel switch. In some countries, this makes sense because EPG can only be made available for a few hours – in other countries, however, the providers transfer EPG for many days and then a less frequent analysis would make sense.

As of version 1.5.1, the hour interval in which the EPG data will be analyzed again can be set in the server preferences. In Germany e.g., it is sufficient after 72 hours (3 × 24 hours).

In contrast to XMLTV, the EPG data of the channel providers are unfortunately not properly separated, so that no subtitle could be displayed so far.
At least for Germany, there seems nevertheless a consistent format with DBV-T2 and DVB-C: after the title comes the duration (in parentheses) and then the further text.

In this version it is therefore checked whether a duration exists in parentheses – in which case the title and additional text are separated. And the first 64 characters of the additional text are used as subtitle.
While this is still not optimal, the data is now displayed better in the EPG overview.

Finally, in the server window, there are now also short infos about the individual settings, which can be displayed by the button “?”.
