    The guide data seems to be available again.

    I had to manually download the xml file, and then had to delete the TV89.db file, but I now have a full guide.

    Edit: just went over to my Linux partition and the guide loaded fine on it's own. Still had to "Clear Data" and delete the "TV29.db" file, then reboot Kodi though.

    Sweeeeeet.....my guide loaded up again. Hope someone can shine some light on this.....I changed the REMOTE URL to http://nfps.**********
    and somehow the xml file still shows up in /userdata/addon_data/pvr.stalker/epg_xmltv.xml --(I deleted it thru my troubleshooting routine )

    epg updater addon is DISABLED
    I'm on Android

    How does epg_xmlt.xml download to the same place? when PVR Stalker has no setting in it (when REMOTE URL = http://nfps.********** ) telling it where the xml file should be downloaded to?

    When the guide had problems ( assuming provider backend was UP ) my troubleshooting routine was:
    clear data in System >> Live TV >> General & Guide
    DELETE epg_xmltv.xml & Epg11.db and restart Kodi for a good guide pull.

    The above routine is still needed, yeah? No worries if we don't get an explanation for how the xml file ends up where it is with new REMOTE URL setting.....Just glad
    everything works. MANY THANKS everyone.

    I don't think it matters, but make sure you are looking at the right folder, you might be looking at the pvr.stalker.nfps data folder instead. The PVRs use EPG*.db files they populate through the xmltv file from where ever it gets it. In normal operation, you shouldn't have to do your routine, but if you are 'working', maybe you shouldn't 'fix it'.

    Thanks Dara.....Yes, I think when it ain't broke don't fix it.....BUT if there's a better way of doing things - why not try it? Ok, so just wondering:
    Is there any advantage of this new REMOTE URL change versus the old special://_ ?? THANKS again.

    I prefer a less busy machine, and less services running. However, if one jumps in and out of the pvr multiple times, and forces a new epg load, thats where you can get yourself banned from the ********** server... the service will help with that by timing the download.

    guide data was messed due to some changes.. should be good now.. all the PPV channels should also pupulate (wether or not they have detailed data is a diffferent story)
    New to nfps/rocket/iptv66.. get the epg updater addon from it will simplify your setup
