We’ve had some reports of issues with epgimport .
Initial investigation suggest that a recent epgimport update will stop it from working with any panel’s epg feed.
We’ll investigate further but in the meantime we suggest not updating to the latest epgimport version.
This issue is caused by the latest version of epgimport checking for a ‘LastUpdate.log’ file on the server that supplies the xmltv epg feed. If the file doesn’t exist or the date within is older than 2 days then the server is considered invalid and not used. Unfortunately this file is used by Rytec feed servers but not IPTV panels.
We’ve released v0.7.6 which sets a flag in the epgimport sources to ignore this check however this flag has only recently been added to epgimport and at the moment only works on the OpenPLI branch and not the OE-Alliance fork. Hopefully the OE-Alliance fork will merge this feature soon.
New versions of epgimport have broken the epg for IPTV panels. You should avoid updating epgimport for now, or revert to a previous version.
Updating to v0.7.6 of this script/plugin should fix the issue on OpenPli and hopefully future OE-Alliance images.
