    Is that the same EPG info?

    What server is that? Url?

    @Rytec,
    could you please update BH service list like you did with PLi? (more servers)

    It is BH team who needs to update their epg import plugin with my url's so in case when the standard site is down it automaticaly looks for another site.
    When they have done this then it will be more stable as it is already in OpenPli and VIX.

    But who is responsible for this epg plugin in BH? it seems I get no answer when I ask about this.

    Ok so I manually updated this on my box with BH but where's benluk gone? I need them in 1 file as it was on rytecs site.
    (ps no othing epg system works without crashing the box eventually then a manual epg.dat push, it would help if you could offer 5 or 6 day epg.dat files, ea. benluk/epg.dat7.gz and benluk/epg.dat5.gz as most 7 day systems just overloads the box)

    I've tested the EPG in different images,
    there is definitely no ideal solution for EPG
    except one more memory
    all other solutions is the compromise.

    BH clean image without major extras
    can accept at least 4 providers.
    I have test with all providers in one 26 mb Epg.dat
    no crash but problems with stability
    fror example System menu
    lack of memory.
    Of course, the more installed plugins/addons in the image , less memory
    for EPG

    So the users have to decide which are priorities for them.
    Memory is not a bottomless pot
    only if it is so great that you have no problems

    Some images force the EPG in to memory
    and do not give a chance to enigma to clean memory/remove epg
    preventing crash and
    result of this is the instability of the image,
    or endless reboot/reload with to much epg.
    Conclusion:
    So choose a few most important providers
    and doe not make unnecessarily epg updates.

    Of course, limiting the size of the EPG
    (limiting the number of days)
    for some of you would be straightforward solution
    but I'm not coder for epg data and image epg
    so I do not know whether it is easy to make.

    =================================================

    In connection to the servers problems we will have good news.
    Very soon.

    If this is a memory problem why don't the coders use diskspace? this will remain a problem until the cows come home, harddisks are fast enough to get epg data when you need it instead in stuffing in into ram. It is nothing new, look at sql server, you can tune that to use 256mb of ram(which is barebone) and the rest is on disk and with epg we're not talking about many gb's. So epg coders, keep memory footprint to a minimum and use diskspace=problem permanently solved.

    So perhaps it would be straightforward solution
    but for now this is the way in which E2 using EPG
    This system is not perfect but it is probably the fastest
    As far as I understand it.
    the new boxes will probably not have this problem because RAM is large enough.

    Or maybe some sort of manual how to enlarge ram or how to add ram via diskspace(not swap) or usb-disk, usb sticks are cheap and as fast as ram, maybe a script that maps usb-stick space to ram-space?

    This morning I flashed my VU+Duo with BH 1.6.1. Afterwards it's impossible to get my two Rytec Epg's, which are Rytec_UK and Rytec_DE. I only get the message "Sorry connection failed".

    Is there a problem in BH 1.6.1 here, or maybe the Rytec-server is down? Anyone who knows anything about this?
