This page is a loose translation of the page about the xmltv2vdr-plugin available in the german wiki.
xmltv2vdr is a plugin for the VDR that imports EPG-Data into the VDR. By itself, it does not fetch any EPG-Data; the EPG-Data has to be supplied by third-party software to xmltv2vdr in xmltv format.
The third-party software to fetch the EPG-Data is not part of xmltv2vdr because of legal issues (cf VG_Media).
libxml2, libsqlite3, libpcre
VDR >= 1.6.0
Assuming that the xmltv2vdr plugin has been installed on the VDR in conjunction to third-party software that uses the xmltv2vdr plugin to get the EPG-Data into the VDR, the configuration about
* what EPG-Data sources to use * what channels of the source correspond to what channels of the VDR * other configurations like frequency of updates, etc.
is completely done in the OSD of the VDR.
The OSD of the xmltv2vdr plugin can be accessed under the plugins settings.
