EPG Cache


Post by mldenison » Mon Mar 28, 2016 5:55 pm

I looked at the cache directory today. I noticed a huge number of files in it dating back to the original install.

I deleted all of them except today's files and have 15,000+ files remaining.

Is there any way the the executable could clear out these files each time it runs?

It clears what it no longer needs ...

A cablecard schedule with ~500 channels for 14 days will have ~30K to 45K files. One for each and every valid program listing plus some extra for channels.

And now some even more for generic series descriptions. Don't worry mldenison, it will just have to download all the files again ... no impact to the output. It will just take a little longer to perform an update.
