Weirdness with Lineup Services

After having MCE since its beta release all those years ago, I have literally just moved over to EPG123, as the guide was finally doing my head in.

I am in the UK, and have a dual DVB-T and a single DVB-s2 tuners, and having subscribed up to 2 lineups in Schedule Direct, I am a little confused at what I see in the EPG client, as the line up service show "-1" for the channel number...but the EPGconfig, the channel are correct. What am I missing ?

I did this intentionally for the DVB-S lineups. I found that the channel number, frequency, ONID, TSID, SID parameters could be outdated and the client would match to the wrong channels. Rather than allow epg123 to incorrectly match guide listings to WMC channels, using a -1 channel number forces the user to manually match the listings to the proper channels.

I should probably revisit this, but not sure what I can do at the moment.

I'm going to release a new version tonight and I will take out the channel number override for DVBS. Since you have both DVBT and DVBS, you should change your scheduled task to not use the 'Automatically match...'/'Automatch' option. They both can have the same channel numbers so the automatch routine could assign the wrong listings to a channel.

You can quickly do it manually in the client by filtering by DVBS/DBVT on the left side, select the appropriate lineup on the right, and click the Match by: [# Number] button.


EDIT: Looking closer, I think I will still have it using -1 channel numbers for DVBS. Even in your photos, you can see the channel numbers in the lineup do not match the channel numbers provided by your tuners.

Code: Select all

	Lineup		Tuner
109	BBCALBA		S4C
120	S4CHDVM		ITV3
121	C4P1		ITV3+1
124	MORE4		E4+1
125	MORE4P1		More4

I've found 2 really good sources of full channel info:
https://www.lyngsat.com/Astra-2E-2F-2G.html
https://en.kingofsat.net/pos-28.2E.php
which should allow perfect matching of listing to channel.

Not sure what the mechanics of trying to automate the match would look like!
