How does Emby handle having multiple guide providers? I've already added a XmlTV provider and made sure as many of the channels as possible are mapped correctly. But of course, guide data for some of the channels is still missing. So I want to add an Emby Guide Data provider. But I know that when I add a provider Emby will try to auto map the channels. If I already have a channel, let's say channel 1, mapped correctly but the Emby Guide Data auto maps that same channel incorrectly, will that break my existing (correct) mapping? If the same channel is mapped in each of the included providers, how does Emby decide which provider's data to use? I'm hesitant to add another provider if there's a risk that I'll break the mapping I've already done. Furthermore, using the channel 1 example above (the channel is mapped correctly using the XmlTV provider but mapped incorrectly using the Emby Guide Data) what happens if the Emby Guide Data doesn't provide that channel at all? If the auto map did map to an incorrect channel but there is no correct channel to map it to, what then? I see no way to just clear out a mapping, so if there is no correct mapping to change it to I think I'd be stuck with an incorrect mapping. In summary, if the same channel is mapped using multiple guide providers, but at least one of those mappings is incorrect and can't be corrected, what happens? Which provider will Emby pull from?
RobiSerri posted a topic in Emby Guide DataI just rearranged my channels and now I want to change the Guide Data but it won't let me erase it, I just can swap it by another channel from the same provider. But what if I want to change provider as well, it wont let me do it as it stays on and now I have two different providers mapped for the same channel. Also, it wont let me erase the mapped guide and leave it blank. I rather have it blank than mapped to a channel that is not the correct one. Please help.
Could Emby also incorporate built in support for XMLTV guide providers in the following format: - *.gz (GZIP) - *.zip Above formats are common for commercial EPG providers (especially gz), because it saves them bandwidth server side with a factor 10. Thanks !
