Exporter of EPG from OpenWebif to XMLTV to use with Plex

Project description

# owi2plex
Exporter of EPG from OpenWebif to XMLTV to use with Plex

## Dependencies
* Python 2.7/3.7
* The following Enigma2 Plugins need to be installed
* OpenWebif Server Plugin
* HRTunerProxy Pluging
* Plex (to use the XMLTV file) with a Premium Subscription

## Installation
### Via PIP
run the following command:

`pip install owi2plex`

### Cloning this Repo
Clone this repository locally (suggest you do into a folder where your Plex server runs or at least where it can get the output file via a network mount/share).

Install the requirements with:

`pip install -r requirements.txt`

## Usage
owi2plex --help
Usage: owi2plex [OPTIONS]

-b, --bouquet TEXT The name of the bouquet to parse. If not specified
parse all bouquets.
-u, --username TEXT OpenWebIf Username
-p, --password TEXT OpenWebIf Password
-h, --host TEXT OpenWebIf Host
-P, --port INTEGER OpenWebIf Port
-o, --output-file TEXT Output file
-l, --list-bouquets Display a list of bouquets.
--help Show this message and exit.

## Examples

If OpenWebif server is running in with no auth and you want to output the file to c:\tmp\:

`owi2plex -h -o c:\\tmp\\epg.xml`

If you have a bouquet called TV and you only want to generate the XMLTV for the channels in that bouquet:

`./owi2plex -b TV -h -o /tmp/epg.xml`

## Scheduling

For now the script doesn't handle scheduling but you can use crontab in Linux or Windows' Task Scheduler. Ensure that the script runs daily *after* your OpenWebif box has refreshed the EPG.

Depending on your machine and network speed the generation time varies but for my modest set-up it takes about 45 seconds for a bouquet with 100+ channels.
