2Boom’s m3u/bouquet converter
I just try this plugin, and it worked for me, I’ts very easy to use, just put your m3u list in /tmp, then open the plugin and convert the list, you will find a new bouquet in the channel list .
a small plug-in for quick conversion playlists in m3u bouquet for enigma2
The following options are supported for conversion:
Livestreamer / hls
Livestreamer / hlsvariant
Gstreamer

The plugin can be installed manually thru /tmp folder

After that may I change the order of the channels?
And (very important) they will work autoupdating themselves or do I need to restart this process everyday?

Note:
for now I use the IPTV top bouquet generated by the "wget -0 "http...enigma22_script&type=mpegts" followed by the iptv.sh
And:
it works, but, I cannot change the order of the channels and I cannot make a copy of the channel in other bouquets because they will not work.

How can I solve this problem?
I would like to change the order and put my preferred channels at the top.

Thank you

Hi there,

I am trying out the service.

I want to get the IPTV channels list into my Enigma2 box so that I can use a full EPG and schedule recordings. However I cannot get either method described abogve to work:

1. IPTV generator and DreamboxEdit - produces a blank list on Enigma2 with no channels in it
2. 2Boom’s m3u/bouquet converter - I can install the plugin on my STB but it does not recognise the M3U file (with any of the conversion options)

Please advise

ps - the attached is what the new bouquet looks like in Dreamboxedit for me. No channels listed:

OK eventually got 2Boom’s m3u/bouquet converter to work, although it produces malformed links to the streams. They have to be fixed manually in a text editor.

Now n eed to try and get the EPG to populate

OK, Ive now got a channel appearing in the channel list on my openvix enigma2 STB, populated with the correct EPG data from the in-biult Rytek EPG sources. Good! But unfirtunately, the enigma2 OS crashes when I try to schedule a recording. I've asked for help understanding the logs on that.

So there is hope, but it sure is going to take a lot of manual effort. I would essentially have to manually update every channel entry by hand.

I've worked around the crashing box.
Next problem is getting the streams to record reliably. So far I only get very short recordings. I suspect that the Enigma2 OS is used to steady bitrates. It may just be struggling with latency and out of order packets. Might need to switch to Kodi on a PC

Hey Thanks IPTV
Any update on EPG?
Strange thing is that the XC plugin DOES give EPG data but this method does not give any epg data...

Any solutions?
