We are beta-testing a new XMLTV EPG option in the DVR, to support users in international countries where we're unable to offer gracenote guide data.
This beta is focused primarily on hdhomerun users in Australia (cc @aussies), where you now have several options for guide data:
SiliconDust's DVR subscription now offers an XMLTV guide as part of the $35USD/yr subscription fee. You can subscribe to their service here and then associate it with your HDHR here using the code in the confirmation email.
IceTV offers a $3.99AUD/mo XMLTV guide subscription here
Community maintained XMLTV data files here
To try this feature out, first update your DVR by click-and-hold on the Check for Update button. Next, when you click
Pick Guide Data under your HDHomeRun, you will now see some new XMLTV options:
Most of our testing so far has been with Australian XMLTV data, but users in other countries are welcome to participate. Users in NZ can also try the SiliconDust DVR data (although the quality does not seem as good in terms of images and metadata), or community sources like NZXMLTV here.
Please share your experiences below. This feature is still in development, so if you run into bugs or have sample xmltv files from different regions please email us [email protected]
NOTE: In addition to updating your DVR to v2019.12.22.2303 or later, we recommend the latest beta apps for Apple TV and Android TV on getchannels.com/beta
