Android epg and rec app unofficial

Post by Ant » Sat Apr 20, 2019 10:31 am

Hi.

Idea is simple, while whole week, we need just get some intresting things recorded.
So update epg, choose or search program, and set it for record.

This is unofficial android app for vbox, that used device API.
So we need some feedback from users with different devices, to collect errors, and maybe that goes to google play and more features.

Main features:
Search Program.
Search Channel.
Search Description.
Easy recording option, even without epg.

Install, set your device ip.
And you are ready to go.
Required atleast Android 4.4.

Known issues:
Looks like if you device based on GPU PowerVR SGX544(544MP2) you may see some interface slow move, but thats only for the first time.

We would appreciate feedback and ideas.

Apk is there:

Just let you know.
There is development still in progress.
You may see changes here:
https://github.com/mejgun/vbr/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md

In short, app can now switch between devices if you have more than one.
Also for devices with lots of channels and really big size epg, was added ability to get program for smaller amount of days. (with big xml, your mobile device should be powerful enough for comfort search and etc)

Main tests is done with 2 devices:
xti-3442 in dvb-t/t2
xti-3442 in dvb-c

If anyone have another model and ready to spend few minutes with app tests, it would be great to have feedback.

Some more info:

We get xti-3332СI as test device.
Everything looks fine.

Also, for those who care, app was tested on:
Android 4.1.1 (some suspicious calendar speed work, but it works)
Android 4.2.2

For now, for app version 1.3.2 - It just works for those old android versions.

Can it be enhanced to do series recordings?

Thanks,
Simon

Which type of it?
As far as we know, there is ability set manual series recording and getting series recording if its aired in dvb info from provider.
Just describe what you do to set it usually.

I have rated on Google play now.

I couldn't see how to setup a series recording in your app. In the official app you can choose "Record" or "Series Recording", your app only has the option to " Record" please can you add series recording?

I have attached screenshots of the official app and your app on the same programme, your app only has a record button but the official app also has a series recording option.

Hopefully that makes sense.

Thanks,
Simon

Hi. I couldn't attach my XML file to this post so I sent it to the email address on your Google play app listing. Hopefully it helps.
Thanks
Simon
