So now the Sky UK EPG grabber won't work due to changes made by Sky, I figured I'd try to use the Freesat EPG instead, which is transmitted over DVB-S on a channel called Freesat Info. However, I haven't used the DVB EPG grabber in probably years and it doesn't seem to work. Here's the log extract:

I have no idea why it's referencing "dvbt" since "card 5" is DVB-S. I have EPG grabbing enabled for timeshifting, recording, and idle, and I have both "Grab EPG only for channels on the same transponder" and "Store data only for the selected channels" unticked. Any ideas?

    I have no idea why it's referencing "dvbt" since "card 5" is DVB-S.
    ...and I have no idea what you're referring to. ;)


    To me it looks like this is the issue:
    [2018-01-14 16:31:49,957] [EPG ] [DVB EPG timer] [INFO ] - Tuning finished but EpgGrabber no longer enabled

    You must restart the TV service after enabling the DVB EPG grabber. Also, there's always the possibility that the custom data grabber version of TV Server that you're using has hard-code-disabled the built-in EPG grabber.

    Ah good point, maybe it is disabled. I guess I'll have to do a clean uninstall and reinstall...kinda sucks since I haven't done that in years and that might introduce other issues.

    I want to emphasize that I only said it was a possibility.

    kinda sucks since I haven't done that in years and that might introduce other issues.
    These are the trade-offs of using a custom version.

    Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk.

    this seems to be related to the Ares skin. It can be somewhat fixed by replacing the mytvrecordedtv.xml with the one found in the DefaultWide skin. It really messes up the overlays though.

    Ah ok, I thought you ment from FullEPG. For MiniEPG the problem is known (therefore I just use FullEPG). Root cause is, that the MiniEPG is only an overlay and not indepentent screen, so it's not part of the workflow history. ESC is defined to bring you back one step in the workflows. In your case this would be the screen before...
