Hi there,

is there a possibillity to rename a epg-genre category in the tv server config and in Mp2?

I like to rename "special" to "series" and add a new category like "others".

    It should work like this following. Go to the TV configuration, click two times slowly on the genre name and edit it.
    After restarting MP2 server it should be updated.

    I think you can not add additional categories. It's not because of MP2, but the TVE3 engine.
    Maybe @Lehmden knows a workaround ...

    Hi.
    Personally I'm not very interested in those genres as way too often I would choose a different genre, if I had to. That's why I don't use genre colors in EPG...
    As far as I know there is no way to add new genre groups. They are hardcoded. So to change anything here you need to manipulate the source of TVE and compile it yourself.
    But the "others" group is existing (somehow). Everything that is not mapped into one of the defined groups automatically is in "others", means it has no special color in EPG...

    For Kodi's MediaPortal PVR addon there is a configuration file where the genre mapping to MP's genre groups is defined. Maybe this can be a starting point, if someone may have a deeper look at this. I've attached it just for information.

    Okay, would be nice to define a color for that.
