XBMC/Kodi EPG genre colours

Hi Oberon,

Are the genre colors determined in the EPG by the addon, or through the skin in XBMC? And is there a way to edit/override them?

They are definitely not determined by addon. Addon only passes the genre information and XBMC uses it to show some particular colors in guide.

I am confused why Kodi 17 and 18 show other genre names as in dvblink player / windows media center. For example shows both programs "Komödie (Film) but in kodi show" Film / Drama". I am also wondering that all movies in kodi have the same genre name " Film / Drama"! I do not why and where i can change this. Because of that my timeline epg can not show coloured epg. Only sport works.
My xmltv_categorymap.xml have the correct Genre. Please solve this issue.
Thanks

This is Kodi related.

Kodi interpets the genre by the EIT genre code (or its equivalent name). If one of your genre names matches with it, it will be translated.

For this fact it would be senseful, the genres of theDVBLink EPG could be mapped to these EIT codes.
