Hi,

I have a dreambox 7020 and have just connected hooked it up to Sky UK (from Milan, Italy) and I am trying to get an EPG for Sky...

I have the Gemini image (3.x?). Can anyone advise on a way to get the EPG?

Thanks,
UKCamaroSS

Sky's epg is uses their own system and doesnt work on non Sky boxes, so unless theres a plugin to enable it you will have to make do with now & next.

and here's how :
- install the PLi image on your dreambox
- in the PLi settings, select the SQLlite database on USB or HD
- activate cron in PLi setup
- download & install the Sky EPG plugin
- configure the plugin (use the yellow button)
- wait for the first download
the SKY epg will now be loaded, ready to be used in your epg viewer (like MV)

Great stuff, thanks.

When you say "ready to be used in your epg viewer (like MV)"... is this another plugin that must be downloaded? Do have any info on MV or is there any idiot's guide anywhere?

Thanks,

MV is integrated in the PLi image - just use the [red] button.
PLi have their own epg viewer as well, or you can use the standard enigma epg viewer. To change the standard epg viewer, pres [red] twice quickly.
I personally like MV best, but it takes some setting up to give it the display I like (press [dream] while MV is active on the screen).

Hi,

OK, I have managed to mount my USB stick and have downloaded the Sky EPG plugin, but I can't get anything.

I don't think I have cron(d) set up correctly (active), can you tell me what I need to do with cron?

Thanks,

cron is to schedule a script. To set it up


(1) telnet command killall crond

(1) with ftp uncomment the line (ie remove # from) in /var/etc/init

#sleep 15 && /var/bin/crond &

(2) add the following line in /var/spool/cron/crontab/root

05 * * * * root /var/bin/script01.sh

(3) telnet command crond

This will update every 5 minutes. If not happy, reduce 05.
