I think this is due to the latest update to 4.0.1, but suddenly, some of my IPTV channels (only a handful) have stopped populating the guide info even though I checked the epg.xml provided by my IPTV provider (Vaders) and there is EPG data for those channels. Specifically they are ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox. IPTV is on one tuner and regular antenna tv through hdhomerun is on another tuner getting its EPG straight from Schedules Direct. No issue with the hdhomerun tuner or its guide. 

 

Is there suddenly an issue with having the same channels listed with different tuners and different guide providers? Or do they ultimately all have the same XML ID which is causing a conflict? I can't tell. All I know is that everything was working well for about a month and suddenly no more guide info for the IPTV channels that have an equivalent channel on another tuner. I am not sure where emby stores the EPG data it pulls from Schedules Direct. I would like to compare XML data and see if I consolidate this all somehow. 

 

Should I try disabling the antenna tuner and its guide? (I only use it as a backup if IPTV is not working because aerial reception is garbage)

 

Any advice on a resolution or suggestions on a better setup would be appreciated.

Hi there, have you tried refreshing the guide in emby server?

Yes repeatedly and rebooted the server. The guide info from Vaders is good for about 36 hrs into the future. So it didn't become clear immediately after rebooting the server after an update. Guide info refreshed early Thursday morning which is after I rebooted the server for 4.0.1 update. Now guide data is missing for only a certain handful of channels. I'm stumped because my usual issue is either I have no data at all or everything is populated.

Have you checked the program info shown for the channel-id's, in Vaders downloaded xml, for the tvg-id's that have no EPG ?

I did. Not sure if you are a Vaders user as well but I noticed there were two ABC with the same ID. I heavily edit down the M3U file to just the streams I want. So for instance, there is an ABC HD and an ABC New York. They both share the same ID so it shouldn't matter which I have included in my m3u file since the EPG had guide info for that ID. I tried to add both to the M3U file but it still did not make a difference. I didn't check for the other stations.

I'm sure there is an explanation in the data. Can you give an example of something that isn't showing up that you feel should be? Thanks.
