Pre Requisitesents

For the Epg you need to have the Epg-importer plugin installed – this should be available in most plugin feeds.

Downloading

Download the latest plugin ipk file from here

Installation

There’s a few different ways to install the plugin. SSH/Telnet, FTP

SSH/Telnet

  • SSH/Telnet to the box
  • Install by running
    opkg install https://github.com/su1s/e2m3u2bouquet/releases/download/v0.7.7/enigma2-plugin-extensions-e2m3u2bouquet_0.7.7_all.ipk

    (or the url to the latest release ipk file)

  • Reboot the box
    reboot

FTP

  • Download the ipk and ftp it to the /tmp folder on the box. N.B. if the config.xml file (see below) is in the /tmp folder it will also be installed if an existing one doesn’t exist
  • Either install it from the box GUI (in OpenVix this will be ‘Menu -> Setup -> ViX -> Install local extension
    or SSH/Telnet to to the box and run

    opkg install /tmp/enigma2 [TAB – to autocomplete path]
  • Reboot the box
    reboot

Open your plugins menu, there should now be a plugin named ‘IPTV Bouquet Maker (IPTV for Enigma2 – E2m3u2bouquet plugin)’

Upgrading

If you install over the previous version it should migrate your existing settings and provider to the config file based setup

Configuration

Start the plugin and then select configure to set general options

Select providers to configure providers

Press the green button add a new provider or press ok to edit an existing provider

Enter at least the name and press green to save. For entering long urls instead of using the remote control it is recommended to edit the config file (see below)

Epg

Once a schedule or manual run has been performed the Epg-Importer config will be set-up. Open Epg-Importer, select sources then enable the source(s) listed under ‘IPTV Bouquet Maker – E2m3u2bouquet. You run a manual update in Epg-Importer or set-up a schedule.

 

Config file

The config file is located in /etc/enigma2/e2m3u2bouquet/config.xml and an example is below. You should be able to edit this file from your ftp client (or download, edit, upload back to box)

</config>

Provider url, port, name updates

With the introduction of the config file based setup there is now no need for us the maintain a database of provider details. It’s now up to the provider to manage updates themselves. The provider can do this by setting the <providerupdate> element to the url of a text file. The text file should contain ‘Name,M3UURL,EPGURL’  e.g.

SULS,http://www.suls.co.uk/get.php?username=USERNAME&password=PASSWORD&type=m3u_plus&output=ts,http://www.suls.co.uk/xmltv.php?username=USERNAME&password=PASSWORD

The USERNAME & PASSWORD placeholders will be replaced with the values from the <username> & <password> elements in the config file

See the provider managed updates post for further details

Known Issues

Deleting / disabling or renaming a provider doesn’t remove the old bouquets. To clear these bouquets use the ‘Reset Bouquets’ option on the main menu and then run again

Provider Warning

We’ve had reports that a particular UK provider claims that this plugin is a keylogger setup to hack their subs.

This is particularly galling as their own script is a rip off from an early version of our script.

Rest assured there is no mechanism in the script or plugin to log any account details – anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of Python programming would be able to confirm this.

In our view this lack of knowledge, false accusations & security concerns should be a strong deciding factor when choosing a provider.
