Schedules Direct subscription
I’m trying to eventually load Schedules Direct data onto the TVHeadEnd EPG, but first it seems I need to get XMLTV up and running.
I have set up my HDHomeRun Connect, mapped my ATSC network with muxes, services, and channels, selecting the channels I want. Tried using the EIT, but nothing shows up on the TVHE EPG listing, though oddly Kodi does now have guide information, albeit with shows mixed up on the wrong channels. Attempts to record fail due to channels not found.
I don’t see XMLTV as part of the OSMC build and can’t find anything on how I install it on OSMC. The posts that refer to it seems to start from the point that it is installed. Have I missed something?
Generally OSMC is based on Debian Jessie so if you google xmltv debian jessie you will find most likely some information. While the following command most likely brings you to your target sudo apt-get install xmltv-util
The installation per his video went fine and I entered my e-mail/password and it appears no errors were generated and the addon is shown as running on my server. xmltv-util is installed on my OSMC/RPi 3 and current.
However, when I log on to the TVHeadend web page for my OSMC/RPi, and try to configure the “EPG Grabber”, the "XMLTV:tv_grab_zap2xml… " does not appear in the “Internal Grabber” drop down box.
Yesterday just to check on Zap2it, I installed it on my Win 7 pc and was able to create an XML file containing all the needed EPG data.
I don’t have a direct answer to your problem. It could be that the plugin you are trying is expecting TVheadend from the LibreELEC plugin and doesn’t play nice with the build you have?
The zap2xml I mentioned in the other thread is a completely different program, by a different author, and works as an external grabber, (as opposed to an internal grabber that your zap2xml is). Maybe you’d have better luck with that?
