If you can import from an XML file, take a look at the XMLTV app on birtles.org.uk. That downloads from Radio Times website

There are a few out there. I tried SkyEPG downloader 1.0 but it's not much use.

I have an RSS reader (Dreambox News Reader) that is better; I'll see if I can find the files and add it for you to try.

edit: copy the 3 files to your plugins folder (/etc/tuxbox/plugins/ on a 7020) and chmod to 755

copy the rss folder and files to /etc/tuxbox/config

Folders may vary by Dreambox model.

Is there an xml feed direct from the radio time website? The BBC Hightlights feed is pointless _http://www.radiotimes.com/tvHighlights.xml

Would you like it gift wrapped? Did you even try it?

Hi rage99 ;) , the easiest way is to get a copy of Dreamboxedit. Either find the copy on this forum - its here somewher or d/l from the happyllama web site.

You mean the way it says "sky cinema 1"? It is because that's what the XML feed supplies (you can add new xml feeds to the rss/feeds.xml file)- if you can find a more up to date Sky EPG xml feed let us know as well :)

The major downside of it is that it doesn't seem to link to Timer Recording.

Is there anything that does link to the timer recordings?

Just got a Dreambox and have a lot to learn. But without a decent EPG, I might have to go back to a Sky box.

Have to say that as much as I love my DM7000, I wouldn't get rid of my Sky+ box, it is much more user friendly when it comes to recording.
