could it also have something to do with the odd character?
"from tvheadend"
At the persistence of his parents and wife, Raymond reluctantly takes Robert out for a night to help him forget about the anniversary of his divorce. Starring: Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Doris Roberts, Peter Boyle
 .

"from tvheadend"
Pull up a bar stool and enjoy a drink where everybody knows your name. Sam, Carla, Norm, Cliff and the rest of the gang are waiting for you at Cheers. Starring: Ted Danson, Shelley Long, Kirstie Alley, Nicholas Colasanto, Rhea Perlman, John..
.

"end quote"
in the tv guide epg screen it only shows the " ." for the content.

hi im still having trouble with the format/display of the epg. i have attachd some screenshots if it helps.
you can see the "Plot" area in the epg from tvheadend has info? But in kodi it only has "." displaying.
can someone help me understand how/where this info is pulled in from an why if the epg from tvheadend has that funny symbol "." it only shows that and seems to ignore everything else?
thanks

The funny . symbol is also on your screen shot of the tvh web UI. This is what Kodi displays.

What you think is the plot, technically is not. The plot actually is "." for your example.

Hi ksooo, yes the funny symbol is there but why doesnt the rest of the "text" before it appear? eg
"Hayden explores hidden gems of Australia through the stories of thoese that inspire him. He visits stunning locations,
interesting people and makes the food we all love to enjoy.

."

on other TV guide "text" if it doesnt have the funny symbol it shows all this text?
thanks

The skin you are using does only display the plot, which is . for your case, but not the plot outline, which is the text displayed above the dot in tvh GUI.
