    I don't believe VLC has EPG capabilities. There might be a plugin, but I'm not aware of it. I use this with Kodi. EPG is just a TV-guide. What's on, what will be on later, etc.

    Fixed. New shorter link in OP.

    I have no idea. However the Rapidiptv epg did not work for me.

    Do I need to limit my channels to UK only in order to use the EPG? I am only seeing one channel when I use the bit.ly address in the EPG settings.

    Unfortunately the playlist names are different to the epg so they're not picked up I edited all of my m3u to match the epg

    Nice work, just in case you had not seen it webgrabplus works very well and is pretty easy to configure. Personally I use Kodi with the Webgrab Plus Service installed on LibreElec for easy scheduling to pull in the epg guide.xml as I customised to my liking (mainly sports and movie channels) and then link the channels from here to a TV Guide addon such as TV Guide DVR which I point at the above generated guide.xml for epg data. Allows for a very simple, configurable Kodi system.

    This EPG only has the UK channels right now. If you replace your current EPG with this, you'll only see UK listings. You'd need to combine them on the fly.

    Ah, yeah, I did notice, I'll get a workaround for that in the next couple of days. (Probably just add some extra display names for each channel. One that removes "HD", one without any whitespaces, one substituting worded-numbers for actual numbers. etc.)

    Woah, looks awesome. I'll check it out.
