    XMLTV settings in VIX 3

    Here’s the settings that work best using XMLTV

    First go to EPG setup … menu/setup/system/epg/settings …the only thing you really need to do here is set the EPG location to USB on the top row

    EPG Location - /media/usb/

    Then … menu/setup/system/epg/settings/setup/system/epg/settings/XMLTV-Importer

    You will notice that daily automatic import is disabled, this is because some people have found this causes problems (but you may not)

    instead of using this option enable “start import after booting up” and use power manager to reboot the box daily (see power manager)


    Daily automatic import - DISABLED
    Automatic start time - 0700
    Standby at startup - disable
    When in deep standby - skip the import
    Show in plugin browser - NO
    Show in extensions - NO
    Start import after booting up - ENABLE
    Load long dexcriptions up to X days - 7


    Then choose your sources (blue button)


    RYTEK UK BBCI XMLTV - GREEN TICK HERE (OK)
    RYTEK XMLTV - GREEN TICK HERE (OK)


    After you’ve chosen your sources … green button to ok then yellow to start a manual import.

    When import is finished you should have a populated EPG

    As referred to earlier use power manager to boot the box daily to update the epg

    Menu/setup/system/vix/power manager


    Enable Power Manager - YES
    Enable Standby - YES
    Standby time - 0900
    Retry after cancel (mins) - 30
    Enable Deep Standby - NO
    Enable GUI Restart - NO
    Enable Reboot - YES
    Reboot Time - 0800
    Retry after cancel (mins) - 30


    Set reboot and standby time to suit

    Once you’re finished setting everything up press epg button then the menu button to set the look of the epg to suit your needs
