Hello all:

 

I was using SD for my Live TV (IPTV m3u subscription). I recently noticed an announcement about the new "Emby Guide data". With the new announcement, I was excited and replaced my SD Guide with "Emby Guide data". When I was using SD, I had all the channels logo and all guide data. Now when I replaced with the Emby, almost all of my Channel logos are missing and No guide data. Very few of them has guides (2%). I used DIRECTV SATTELITE for the channel lineup for SD as well as Emby guide data.

 

While digging into the m3u from the IPTV service, I noticed all the channels has "tvg-id = xxx.schedulesdirect.org".

 

My question: What shall I change for Emby Guide data? tvg-name? tvg-id? and what shall I replace it with? In the mapping, it populates with numbers which I do not see in m3u playlist.

 

I am running:

  Emby Server: 4.0.3.0

 

 

Thank you,

grb

Hi, have you tried mapping them manually?

Hi @Luke

 

I think you are referring to as shown in the screenshot attached. I have lots of channel more than 200+ it would take a lot of time also finding on the right hand side channel list takes a lot time. I am looking for some automated mapping. If there is a way that I change in my m3u playlist that would make channel identification easy for emby. The channel numbers looks so different in m3u and from emby guide channel list.

 

Thanks,5c9f0d79a645a_channelmapping.png

Ok, if you add a tvg-chno attribute to your m3u channels containing the channel number from the guide data, then that should allow them to automatically map. Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

And come to think of it @maegibbons, couldn't you just use that method as well?

That's not really an ideal way to handle this using the channel number.  It would be far better to map the station ID instead.

 

Channel number can change very easily (OTA, Cable, M3U) but station IDs don't.

 

The CURRENT MAPPING BY CHANNEL NUMBER is a great source is issues for most people using M3U files and is the biggest complaint along with the need for categories.

Hi

 

Mapping by station id already works well against tvg-id and I have extracted the station ids from the gracenote data.

 

So i'm good how the tvg-id to station id mapping currently works.  Please dont break this.

@maegibbons you're using the station for matching correct?

I try and do this also but the problem is for those who don't have the expertise to do this and load an M3U file.

Emby will take the EPG and match based on channel number which WON'T WORK and makes a mess of things if not a true OTA or CABLE lineup.

 

Matching this way for a  real tuner is probably fine but this shouldn't be done for M3U files (or give us an option in the tuner setup).
