Hi there, why do you feel it is incorrect? Please discuss an example? What guide data source did you use?

Hi.  Your provider should have given you an url for guide data.  Are you using that?

On some of the movie channels, the guide shows one title but something else is on. Yes, I'm using the guide supplied by Apollo.

Okay, then the data is coming from them not us.  Is it possibly a time zone issue?

Possibly but not all channels are wrong. Is there a guide you can recommend?

What country are you in? @Senna or @maegibbons or @cayars may have some guide source tips.

I'm not familiar with Apollo specifically but any M3U based service is going to be a challenge if the data they provide you isn't correct.

They likely get channels from various sources which could be east or west coast based so trying to come up with your own data is an exercise in these cases.

 

If Apollo has local channels then it's usually a lot easier to match those up.

 

Roughly how many channels do you have that are correct and how many are wrong?
