Hi,

as Kodi use PVR EPG Genre based on the EIT Table it would be senseful to use a mapping like xmltv_categorymap.xml for Kodi genres.

Could this made please?

Hi Oberon,

as WMC is dead, a lot of people switched to Kodi. Kodi uses EIT-Genres. XMLTV has no support for EIT-Genres. I realised that DVBLink is already mapping some plaintext-genre to EIT-Genre based on the settings in xmltv_categorymap.xml. But I have no idea how to edit the xmltv_categorymap.xml to get all my plaintext-genres translated to EIT-Genres. Can you give me a hint, how to do that? Is there a way to define a EIT-genre in the xmltv_categorymap.xml and set my plantext-genres as keywords? Or how are the "old"-WMC-Flags mapped to the EIT-Genres?
Thanks for your help! :)
