[OLD/CLOSED] PseudoTV Live - Set-Top box solution
Quote:I think you might just be expecting more then is possible... Let me explain. This mod is built on the already existing PseudoTV Framwork...
So naturally its governed by the rules set in the original code (not going to start from scratch and completely rewrite everything).

That being said EPG information is nothing more then a visual representation of a m3u playlist; A playlist that is created by PseudoTV.
So the LiveTV Mod parses the available XMLTV file and determans three things:

Was it on --- Is it on now --- Will it be on later

Now since LiveTV Can't play old shows, it ignores everything older then (now).
Takes whats on now and figures out if your tuning in late and corrects start time to account for your late tune in.
Then it populates future shows with the start and end time of the show.

Now since LiveTV Channels always reset and start at the top of the list on every load (to help keep it in sync).
On first launch it will always show the first shows start time as (now) and end time...
anything before (now) in the epg is garbage...
everything after (now) should be correct...

Hope this helps...

Thanks for the explanation. I just tried something that gave me an idea as to what my particular setup is doing. I loaded my Pseudo TV setup at 7:02, both of the live channels that I have been working with had programs starting at 7pm. When PTVL loaded it was already showing one of the feeds, this pushed my guide to starting right now; however, the other one was perfectly in sync. Once I changed to the other live channel PTVL adjusted the guide and move that particular program to start (throwing that channel off).

When I loaded it again 5 minutes later PTVL resumed where it generated the start time last, until I tuned to that channel.

This makes sense! However, I have only seen it do this one time and that was my first load last night. The other times it has done this.

Big Brother and Celebrity swap would be adjusted to starting at load but still ending at their correct times at 8pm this would be a fix. I can't get it to do that though.

Is it possible to disable the time shifting or jump to feature in PTVL, that might be causing this issue? This would result in more of a cable feel such that you watch what is on right now?
