Using external xml file

Added by Marky Marc about 1 month ago

Hi all,

I have been searching for a solution to this but i can across so many thing i'm not sure how to do it.
I have an url to the epg xml file from my provider (Ace-tv) but i have not idea how to use it in tvheadend.

I was able to use scheduledirect for a month but i would rather use the one from ace-tv that has all the channels.
Is there any tutorial or post or anything that would have the steps to accomplish this?

TvHeadEnd is installed on a Ubuntu headless server latest version fully up-to-date and i am a noob when it comes to linux :)

Thank you

If it's an xmltv formatted file you can use something like tv_grab_file to insert the data into tvh.
