Timezone offset issues
« on: April 01, 2013, 10:03:26 PM »
I'm trying to setup a MediaPortal PVR using the generic xmltv download. The issue I have is the show times aren't correct - or rather the timezone setting doesn't seem correct.

Eg. "Sunrise" for example, is 6:00am every day (xml data is below). The time in the .xml file is 1900 (7pm), and the timezone offset is set to +0000 instead of +1100. Is there anything I can do about this rather than writing my own script to go through and replace all "+0000" with "+1100"?
The 'offset' settings in MediaPortal don't seem to work, because the .xml file is hardcoded with the timezone offset.

<programme start="20130331190000 +0000" stop="20130331230000 +0000" channel="56">
      <title lang="en">Sunrise</title>

Thanks for your help.

It sounds like you missed step 7 in our Media Portal setup guide.

Step 7:
(in Media Portal's "TV-Server Configuration") Under "Plugins" => "XmlTv", ensure "Import new tvguide.xml" is ticked, and that "Apply timezone compensation when loading tvguide.xml" is also ticked and that it is set to your current timezone.
