Hello,

I have a VDR (2.0.2) setup with yaVDR's distribution using a Sundtek
stick to watch DVB-C. Additionally I want to add a part of a1tv
(Austrian IPTV) to the setup. While watching IPTV does not pose any
problems, getting the EPG into these IPTV-Channels does.

a1tv does not provide EPG via the data stream so I added epgdata.com
service to the VDR. This again is working fine as far as the DVB-C
Channels are concerned. As for the IPTV it does not work at all.

So, finally, here is the problem:

In order to get EPG data into a channel one has to map a given
Channel-EPG-ID with VDR's Channel-ID. Unfortunately many channels of
a1tv provide the same Channel-ID on VDR. So I tried to modify the RID of
these channels to get a unique Channel-ID (as mentioned in the manual
files). Whem sending the EPG to VDR via PUTE the command does not accept
the RID-extended Channel-ID.

Example for DVB-C (working):
someone at htpc-vdr:~$ svdrpsend lstc 50
220 htpc-vdr SVDRP VideoDiskRecorder 2.0.2; Mon Aug 19 16:41:33 2013; UTF-8
250 50 HSE24;UPC:330000:C0M256:C:6900:4201=2:4211=deu at 3:4301:0:4012:1537:4:0
221 htpc-vdr closing connection
someone at htpc-vdr:~$ svdrpsend lstc C-1537-4-4012-0
220 htpc-vdr SVDRP VideoDiskRecorder 2.0.2; Mon Aug 19 16:43:54 2013; UTF-8
250 50 HSE24;UPC:330000:C0M256:C:6900:4201=2:4211=deu at 3:4301:0:4012:1537:4:0
221 htpc-vdr closing connection
someone at htpc-vdr:~$

Example for IPTV:
someone at htpc-vdr:~$ svdrpsend lstc 53
220 htpc-vdr SVDRP VideoDiskRecorder 2.0.2; Mon Aug 19 16:45:19 2013; UTF-8
250 53 SF 1 HD;A1 Telekom
Austria:8160:S=1|P=0|F=UDP|U=239.2.24.27|A=8208:I:27500:32=27:34=ola at 3;33=deu at 106:41:0:1:0:0:17
221 htpc-vdr closing connection
someone at htpc-vdr:~$  svdrpsend lstc I-0-0-1-17
220 htpc-vdr SVDRP VideoDiskRecorder 2.0.2; Mon Aug 19 16:46:35 2013; UTF-8
501 Channel "I-0-0-1-17" not defined
221 htpc-vdr closing connection
someone at htpc-vdr:~$

Is this a known SVDRP-problem or am I doing something essentially wrong?

Kind regards
Michael
