The actual import runs as a background thread. You can start the thread from the main menu or automatically whenever the plugin is started.
svdrpservice-plugin >= 0.0.2
Everyone who uses 0.0.1 should update. With 0.0.1 you may encounter the following problems:
- Crash when an unexpected error occurs while syncing (connection broken, buffer full, ...)
- Impact of epgsync due to thread priority (like e.g. dropped frames)
Large EPG entries might exceed the internal buffer size. The log will show something like
svdrpservice: line too long in reply from ...
Increase the buffer size to e.g. 32k by editing svdrpservice-plugin's connection.h:
#define BUFFER_SIZE KILOBYTE(32)
