Re: Setup - Channel Icons, Programme Guide, SSH, File Upload, etc

But there is no DOCUMENTATION !!!! I could have saved hours and hours setting up the box if there was a proper manual which explained what all the options on all the pages of the web GUI were for. For example, there is nothing at all in the manual on how to set up the Program Guide Source page ( Str...

Re: Setup - Channel Icons, Programme Guide, SSH, File Upload, etc

@admin@vbox , I appreciate your comments, but.... It is sold as being simple to use but it most certainly is not. Most of my techie friends would struggle to get this working and as for my wife, well it would be on its way back to you or in the bottom of a drawer by now. Where is the documentation?...

Re: Setup - Channel Icons, Programme Guide, SSH, File Upload, etc

@lgnch , Wow thanks! I've found the Icons folder now. I would never, ever have looked there as there is nothing in the appalling documentation about this. Just for further info, I used WebGrab+Plus to grab my EPG for MythTV after I found that I couldn't get the guide data to go from the Vbox to the...

Re: Firefox Live TV support

Are you at Vbox or VLC planning to write a new browser plugin that will be compliant with all the current browsers? I mainly use Ubuntu and found this article on re-enabling these plugins in Firefox 52: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/03/force-enable-firefox-52-npapi-support . With the 32 bit versio...

Setup - Channel Icons, Programme Guide, SSH, File Upload, etc

How do I do a bulk upload of channel icons? I've found a source of icons (tvguide.co.uk) and would like to upload them all to the Vbox so I can associate them with my channels. I've tried these methods to get EPG info for my DVB-T/DVB-T2 info for UK Freeview and nothing just works like you would exp...

Re: EPG Setup for DVB-T2 for Freeview UK

Thanks for your help. I will live with the channel matching for the moment and contact Vbox support. I naively assumed that Vbox support would read this forum and offer their help directly to the customer via the forum. Can we ssh to the Vbox and set up an XMLTV solution on it or does it have to be ...

Re: EPG Setup for DVB-T2 for Freeview UK

I can't agree with you there. How can you say it's not a Vbox issue?? I've just bought a Vbox and now it's an issue! And the guide works fine on my 15 month old TV so it obviously can work if the suppliers are willing to work on it. I bought the Vbox on the strength of the advertising. For example a...

Re: EPG Setup for DVB-T2 for Freeview UK

Hi, thanks again. I tried the smaller xml and left the box while we went out for the entire afternoon (5 hours). Selection_138.jpg Came home and checked browser to find it still hadn't even returned to the Match Channels option so I can't select channels to match. Vbox completely unresponsive via br...

Re: EPG Setup for DVB-T2 for Freeview UK

Thanks. I tried the XML but the Vbox ground to a complete halt for more than an hour. It would not stream anything or respond vie a the web GUI so I ended up power cycling it. It's supposed to be "simplifying home TV setup" , not making it impossible to use. I love the concept but come on please, Vb...
