Any chance of a tut for getting LCD-EPG to work on these images, I've tried it but I'm really struggling :(. Thanks

hi m8

what can i say i would really love to help here but i do not use this feature but i will have a look for you though

please state where you are and what files you got and what you are stuck on

i will do some research and make it a challenge for me to try and get a guide done for you but it will need to be with your help too m8

as i said i dont use that feature personnally but i would play for you

Well, i used a mixture of the files straight from the keywelt board and the english translated ones from njl:world 3, problem is it comes up "No EPG Info", haven't tried anything like that before so abit stumped
ok sorry as you know im new to this i thought maybe someone else would of seen this before me so if someone that knows what they are doing please but in as i am a newby to this as well

ok the lcdmenu.conf is the file that you need in the var/tuxbox/config folder of the dbox

then in the lcd menu there should be a way of configuring this file to enable the epg on the lcd

hope im right just looking at some of the files now

lcd_epg needs to go in var/plugins this needs to be chmod 755

you will need to modify the shellexec.conf so it says something like this

DEPENDOFF=Activate LCD-EPG,/var/plugins/lcd_epg,/tmp/.lcd_epg.on
DEPENDON=Deactivate LCD-EPG,/var/plugins/lcd_epg,/tmp/.lcd_epg.on
SHELLRESON=-&LCD-EPG - View 1,CONFIG=`cat /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf`; echo "$CONFIG" | sed -e 's/^LCD_ANSICHT=.*/LCD_ANSICHT=1/' > /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf,[ -s /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf ] && grep -q '^LCD_ANSICHT=[23]' /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf,Please Wait
SHELLRESON=-&LCD-EPG - View 2,CONFIG=`cat /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf`; echo "$CONFIG" | sed -e 's/^LCD_ANSICHT=.*/LCD_ANSICHT=2/' > /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf,[ -s /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf ] && grep -q '^LCD_ANSICHT=[13]' /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf,Please Wait
SHELLRESON=-&LCD-EPG - View 3,CONFIG=`cat /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf`; echo "$CONFIG" | sed -e 's/^LCD_ANSICHT=.*/LCD_ANSICHT=3/' > /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf,[ -s /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf ] && grep -q '^LCD_ANSICHT=[12]' /var/tuxbox/config/lcd_epg.conf,Please Wait
DEPENDON=*-&Reload LCD-EPG Config,touch /tmp/.lcd_epg.reload; sleep 6,/tmp/.lcd_epg.on,Please Wait
DEPENDON=&LCD-EPG AutoStart~T~T~TOn,rm /var/etc/.lcd_epg_auto,/var/etc/.lcd_epg_auto,Please Wait
DEPENDOFF=&LCD-EPG AutoStart~T~T~TOff,touch /var/etc/.lcd_epg_auto,/var/etc/.lcd_epg_auto,Please Wait

Still get the same error, can't see what to edit to get the EPG to show :(
Thanks for all your help so far yido, appreciated
hold on m8 give us a minute to read the thread and get the files together and i will do a tut for you . this one is easy to install when you know how .
have u had a look at the commando 7.5 image it has all the lcd stuff in there, probably easy to copy, I can get you the root if you want
are you editing a jffs2 image or a squash one ?

do you have the box connected to internet ?
Its JFFS2 and yeh, says on ping that the nets reachable so it should be
sounds like you need busyboxse
and some extra symlinks m8

put these 2 files into the temp

telnet into the box

type this in

Still nothing, getting a wierd bug now aswell when i press restart or shutdown neutrino restarts without channel lists etc, takes a good 3 restarts to get it to eventually restart
