So after a couple of hours of faffing it seems bacfc1 problem was his zgemma i55 doesn't have any tuners as its an iptv box.
We couldn't get rytec channels to download at all. Just 0.
Tried the rytec addresses in a browser and they downloaded fine. So the urls are not blocked.
I even tried copying over my own abm bouquets to see if that would kick it in. It didn't.
But epg importer would quite happily download the epg xmltv file for his provider though. (which as far as iptv epgs goes, its quite a well populated epg)
He also said he couldn't get rytec sources to download on his xtrend with tuners. We had a very slow internet connection at first, that is now speeded up, so maybe that was the problem.
Any other uses got rytec sources to work on an zgemma i55. Or is it just a no go because of the nature of the box.
Need the lamedb and 28.2E files on box
WooshBuild 7 for i55 actually has them files, yet old. (for subs that originally used sids and rytec for epg)
Could flash the save lamedb via echanneliser
Flash new OpenATV, restore lamedb via echanneliser
Set up his new image.
Hassle that though
if not on i55, put a sat feed in, scan full abm, reset bouquets, then redo i.e freesat
If watching a channel and press up then yellow (providers) there should be 28.2 or BskyB and the lamedb scanned.
