hi guys

can any 1 pls help me with installing and using loadepg.


i am using a 800 clone and gemini and want to try using loadepg, but i cant find anywhere any decent info on how to setup etc!

im only just getting the hang of the linux way so i might be asking a few times lol

ive downloaded using blue button, but i believe you have to configure it and edit a cron to run it at a time of day, but in the db i dont really have a clue atm, ie where and what to edit etc!

so any help about setting it up or even help with files i may need would be appriciated

cheers guys!

ian

I can't help with this plugin I'm afraid , but can I ask is there any reason you're using Gemini ?

If you switch to Nabilo blackhole 0.12 you'll have the best available EPG built in and dead easy to use.

no reason for using gemini just what came with the box!

ive just got the knowlage to bugger about with it as yet!

bought as a genuine turned out to be a clone so am bit afraid of what to put on it!

is blackhole clone safe? do i just flash using dreamup and final thing i can think of.
is there still a plugin download button for things like cccam etc (like gemini)

if so i think ill be taking up the advice :)

cheers ian

If its connected to your router flash it using the web interface. Tutorial in the 800 forum. The only unsafe clone image is Gemini, nabilo will be fine and Yes it has an addons panel.

tar very much!


i think i know what ill be doing over the weekend now :)

is it specifically Nabilo blackhole 0.12 i have to get? or is there other versions?

time to backup my channel list and sat positions :)

is there anything i need to be aware of before / during flashing

ie anything more than back up channels, and make a note of my sat positioner stored positions that i need to do before i start flashing #

the only flashing experience i have is my old 5620 when i had a power cut and it went tits up!

cheers ian

Blackhole 0.12 Is the latest Enigma 2 image from Nabilosat for the 800/8000 boxes. Always use the latest version.
Backup the obvious , softcam config files if you use them.
/etc/CCcam.cfg
/etc/CCcam.channelinfo
/etc/CCcam.providers

/var/tuxbox/config/newcs.xml
Picons, if you use them, if they're in flash.

Bouquets obviously, back em up with DreamboxEdit.

Now as for sat positions, that totally depends on your setup. If you're using a Diseqc motor then I highly recommend using USALS, set the tuner config to , Simple & Motor. Then enter your lat and long from google earth. Job done, no sat positions needed.

The EPG on Nabilo is great with some caveats: I have now had many crashes and looking at the crashlogs it is always somewhere in the EPG code, when it is manipulating the EPG data files. The plugin to save the EPG across boots does not seem to work. I have downloaded and installed it and still lose the EPG across boots.
At least the e2_loadepg software retains the EPG across boots and does not cause crashes anywhere near as much as NB12 EPG does.
So it is swing and roundabouts. You makes your pick and .....

I've tried that, doesn't work, the file is missing or something cos the box just crashes and then restarts , like with the SKY-UK so my mate sent me a file called channels.uk so I added that via ftp to the correct folder on the dreambox 8000 and the epg updated straight away after that

i need to do the same for Sky-UK now, there should be a file named similar, eg. channels.ita


also my mate also said to not use the satmate ones cos it sometimes misses letters out of the programme names or something which is annoying at times

I also had some trouble with the plugin I was told to download the _EPG AutoSave_nab.tgz

I done a manual install and it works fine now when I run it from the script menu.
