@mastertheshadow I rewritten the code for channel recognition, should be more stable now. I also recommend that you delete the database before startup as you used those faulty versions.

Thanks for your time and explanations.  Now that I generally know what I'm doing, I'll work on getting it setup and fully learning my way around over the next bit as I prep to move to Kodi 19.

Thank you for the update. It does recognize more channels then before, however some are still unrecognized and I am still unable to manually assign channels from my m3u file as I was able to in Kodi 18 version of TVG full screen. Will that be coming in future updates.
Some improvements in channel recognition:

@doktourtv This function already exists: Context menu -> Options -> EPG List -> Add channel

Latest version gives me an error "Error initializing EPG file: http://XXX Please check if EPG url is valid or if internet connection is available and try again."

I have checked and the internet connection if fine and I can reach the EPG url without problem. Prior versions did not have this issue.

UPDATE: An uninstall and re-install of 9.6.2 v42 seems to have corrected the issue.
@doktourtv 9.6.2 is still in development, I assume we will have a release candidate this or next week. Latest Beta update is 9.6.2 v44.

Hi Marius, first thanks for the awesome work i really love this guide, i think i tested your guide around 6 months ago, but it wasn't ready for my use at that time Smile and i was more used to TV Guide Fullscreen in Kodi 18.x, but the progress you made is amazing, so well done.

I have just one question, do you plan to make scheduled epg download available, like TV Guide Fullscreen has it, so were you can set that the epg file should get downloaded every 24h, 48h or x days (File download interval).
I use a external server were i build my epg guide.xml and now always when i open m-TVGuide it also downloads the guide.xml from the server and then checks if it is newer, in the last two days i played with m-TVGuide i had a lot traffic. If you don't plan to do it, then i need to find a different solution to normalise the traffic, because on every start downloading 10-20MB is not good.

Thanks

Hi, Werner

Disable this setting, should help normalize the traffic and automatically load EPG when generated days ended:

I'm also working on a different solution for the remote checking to reduce the traffic, and a solution to load EPG in background while playing.

EDIT:
For testing:
https://github.com/Mariusz89B/script.mtv.../9.6.2_v45
that was quick Smile thanks for the answer, so just that i understand it, when my guide.xml doesn't have new epg, only then it will download new file, hmm ok so on day 3 i can't look for next day to add timers, so i need to wait that a new guide gets downloaded, i will test this out, best for me would be that it just downloads the guide when it is older then 24h. So i would see always at worst the next 2 days. Anyway great work, thanks

I will see what I can do. Smile
I have run into the same issue as @doktourtv in that I keep getting the error message that "Error initializing EPG file: http://XXX Please check if EPG url is valid or if internet connection is available and try again." I tired installing version 9.6.2 v42 as recommended but this did not resolve my issue. I also tried installing the latest release v46 but I still had the same problem. One thing that I am noticing is that in different comments there is the mention of Python2.7. Do I need to have this version installed on my Windows box for currenly I have the latest version of Python3 installed.
