I have played around with the Ppanel.xml file so I could play my own subtitles.
The only problem I see is how can I get the program information "online" so I could request the correct subtiltle. As I understand there is an epg.dat file that holds all of the epg data.
Is there a way to get the current program's name from it, or from any other source?
Thanks for the reply.
I'm using Drtic plugin for subtitles, but the only problem is that I have to find the name of the program and then go and fetch the correct subtitles file.
I'm trying to do it automatically, via script or via code, and I was wondering if anyone knows where the EPG data is stored inside of the dreambox...
Did you get anywhere with this?
Can you extract the program name, channel, time & date from the epg.dat?
When you open the file epg.dat from the command prompt (using vi) it is a datafile and its not in XML or another "text" format
For me, the EPG file is stored on my hard drive /media/hdd (I think, from memory)....
