XMLTV Guide Data - Use one channels data for another

Hi,

I have an issue with https://www.icetv.com.au XMLTV data - we have TV channels like "9 Sydney" that have two "lcn's" ie channel numbers and show the same shows, but the guide data isn't showing in the guide for both channels. I have tried mapping via the "Manage Lineup" but no success - it maps the channel logo and channel name, but shows no guide data for shows.

Remapped using "Manage Lineup":


Working Guide Data for "9":

Mapped channel logo and channel name (Channel 9 Sydne) but no guide:

I can set IceTV to give me XML for both LCN's or only one LCN - I've tried both ways but still can't get guide data to load for the second LCN (ie channel 91).

From XMLTV file - both LCN's:

<channel id="4">
  <display-name lang="en">9 Sydney</display-name>
  <icon src="http://images.icetv.com.au/channels/nine-v3.png" />
  <lcn>9</lcn>
  <lcn>91</lcn>
 </channel>

From XMLTV file - one LCN:

 <channel id="4">
  <display-name lang="en">9 Sydney</display-name>
  <icon src="http://images.icetv.com.au/channels/nine-v3.png" />
  <lcn>9</lcn>
 </channel>

From an export of http://my-dvr-ip:8089/devices/ANY/channels.m3u?format=ts with one LCN being provided from XMLTV file, and "remapped" using "manage lineup".

#EXTINF:-1 channel-id="9" tvg-chno="9" tvg-logo="http://images.icetv.com.au/channels/nine-v3.png" tvc-guide-stationid="4" tvg-name="9 Sydney" group-title="SD",Channel 9 Sydne

#EXTINF:-1 channel-id="91" tvg-chno="91" tvg-logo="http://images.icetv.com.au/channels/nine-v3.png" tvc-guide-stationid="4" tvg-name="9 Sydney" group-title="SD",Channel 9 Sydne
http://my-dvr-ip:8089/devices/ANY/channels/91/stream.mpg?format=ts

Any assistance here would be appreciated. This is the last thing I need to fix while I am still during my trial period and will define if I use this platform or not.

Thanks,
Shane.

This sounds like a bug. Could you submit diagnostics from your dvr under Support > Troubleshooting

I had the same issue with IceTV data for 10 HD in Melbourne. 10HD is both channel 1 & channel 15 here. But the guide data would only show up on channel 15, even though I had it mapped to both. I just worked around it by hiding channel 1 & showing channel 15 instead.

**update: oops, saw that you've already done the one LCN setting in IceTV. I cutdown on the number of channels in the guide so a channel is shown once in the guide.

Hi there,
I found a work-around for this issue with multiple LCNs for a channel in the IceTV XLMTV and Channels DVR:

  1. Log into the IceTV website.
  2. Go to "My Account", "Guide Settings".
  3. For the each problem channel, change the default "All" to the channel number you're using in the Channels DVR guide.
  4. Click "Save Settings".

I then went into the Channels DVR Settings webpage and did a "Delete and recreate database" in the "Guide Database" section.

After that, the guide data was successfully mapped to the channels.

Hope this helps
