    Hello,

    I would like to share this as a suggestion for configuring DVB EPG.

    In TV server, configure under DVB EPG:
    + always try to fill holes = on
    + always try to update existing entries = on
    + enable CRC check = off
    + grab EPG only for channels on same transponder = on

    Then use some SQL client to connect to the database, and execute the following SQL:

    use mptvdb;

    select displayName, isRadio, isTv, grabEpg, visibleInGuide from mptvdb.channel as c1
    where (c1.idchannel, c1.istv) in (
    select c1, istv from (
    select transportid, c.istv, min(c.idchannel) c1
    from mptvdb.tuningdetail as t join mptvdb.channel as c on t.idChannel = c.idChannel
    where 1=1
    and c.visibleInGuide =1
    group by transportid, c.istv
    ) as q1
    )
    and grabepg = 0
    order by istv desc, displayname
    ;



    This will list all channels for which EPG grabbing should be enabled (one per transponder). Go to TV server setup and set the check marks under TV/radio EPG grabber. I found a 3 minute timeout (idle and timeshifting) is sufficient to safely grab 1 week of EPG.

    If configured this way, the EPG usually builds itself from scratch in under 2 hours. It also avoids the EPG becoming incompetely or sparsely populated - I found some channels provide EPG for channels on other transponders only in a very limited way.

    Cheers,
