xmltv download custom file name

Postby Auldar » Wed Jun 15, 2016 11:25 pm

My EPG provider (Freepg) packages up the xmltv file based on user and location.

The resulting file has the parameters used to download after the file name:


I tried a number of things to get that file recognised by DVBlink without success.

When configuring DVBlink to download this file it would be great if we can tell it a file name to save it as (EPG.xmltv.gz).

I had to set up a cron job to run a script which did a wget -O <filename> into my QNAP Web directory and then point DVBlink to download the resulting file from the QNAP web server.
It works for me but it's not something I should have to do and it would be almost impossible for someone who knew nothing about UNIX.
