I cannot seem to wrap my head around what I need to do to get EPG working with vdr. I can't find a decent tutorial on the web (there might be but a LOT of sights are german or dutch).

My /etc/default/vdr file has OPTIONS="-w 60 --epgfile /var/lib/vdr/epg.data" for options. I've checked permissions, and they are fine. At first I left this file blank to see if vdr would populate somehow (atsc epg) but it did not. I then used mc2cml to grab the data, and I renamed it egp.data and moved it to the path I reference above. Still no luck.

Can anyone give a push in the right direction?

this is wrong:

Code:
--epgfile /var/lib/vdr/epg.data

needs to be

Code:
--epgfile=/var/lib/vdr/epg.data

Gave that a go, and looking in the logs, it's trying to load it, but the file ends up getting zeroed out. Shortly after starting vdr, the file is still there and populated, but then it gets zeroed out shortly after.

you should no manipulate epg.data from outside.
