EPG seriously flawed - need to fix mappings
Posted 21 June 2019 - 11:59 PM
We ABSOLUTELY need the ability to unmap channels and to be able to match a channel on tvg-Id instead of just a name or even partial name.
You have said channel management and better epg has been coming for months yet there is no movement on it. Please take action on this and get something into beta soon.

I would agree that channel mapping and management does need improvement, but just the other day I decided to attempt mapping my IPTV service though the Emby Guide and using its EPG, and while it took a little time to remap the channels correctly, I was able to do so, and the Gracenote Guide through EMBY is far, far superior to the EPG data I had been using for the last several months from 2 third party providers.
Yes it took a little effort to do so, and yes it could use improvement, but it can be done and it is well worth the effort.

Well it can matter depending on how you use NPVR.
...If you still wanted to use Emby's EPG data then you will still have the issues mentioned in this thread, but at least gain redundancy of tuners sources (combined), multi-rec, status panel to see what "tuners" are being used (even from M3U sources), etc. These are all planned for Emby but would be immediately available to those who setup NPVR and export out a channel list, modify it with the "client" parameter and then set this up as an M3U source in Emby.
To me personally it's not terrible at all. You can do all this now if you want to install TVHeadend. NPVR is just a lot easier to setup and use then TVH for most people.
@cayars (or anyone else who has done similar) Can you advise on how to achieve this?
What settings in NextPVR to output the channel list, what to modify on it and how to set Emby up to import it?
Thanks in advance!
