Technical issues

The app only shows EPG data that was available on the receiver at the time of the last data update. Open the single EPG of a station that does not contain EPG data and select Update.

To make sure that the EPG data is up to date during the automatic update, you have two options: Select the option 'Switch before' in the app so that the data update switches to the channel before and receives the current EPG data. However, the update should be performed at night. Alternatively, you can use the receiver plugin 'EPGRefresh' which also switches through the channels time-controlled to keep the EPG data current. The time should then be before the data update of dream EPG.

The time zone of the receiver does not match the time zone of the Android device. Please check the time zone of the receiver under Menu - Settings - System - Time zone and compare it with the time zone of the Android device. Since version 8.1.0 of dream EPG you can set the time zone of the receiver under Settings - Management. So EPG and timer data will be displayed correctly even if you are in a different time zone.

The app shows all bookmarks of Enigma2. You can also add more directories including subdirectories to the app to make them visible. To do so, go to Settings - Recordings and select Manage Recording Directories.. Now select Add Directories and enter a directory that is available on your receiver. If FTP access is set up in your current profile, all subdirectories can also be determined and added automatically.

With the option Keep directories up to date new subdirectories will be added automatically during the data update.

In this case the default recording directory is not set correctly.

Under Enigma2 there is usually the directory /hdd/movie and /media/hdd/movie which are identical. In the app, /hdd/movie is the default directory. If /media/hdd/movie is the default directory, you can change it under Settings - Recordings - Default recording directory.

The app displays 150 channels per bouquet by default. This limitation prevents long loading times for very large bouquets. You can change this limitation under Settings - EPG - Channel limit per bouquet .

This is a bug in the plugin OpenWebIf which was fixed in a newer version. Just update the plugin.

If an error message appears when changing bouquets: If the web interface plugin is used, the bouquet editor plugin must also be installed on the receiver.

The app was developed and optimized for Android devices and is not available for iOS. Please purchase dream EPG Premium. There are no restrictions there.

A programme that is being recorded can be played back during this time. However, the playback will stop at the point in time when the playback was started. This is due to the way the Webinterfache/OpenWebif provides the stream and is not due to the App. Currently there is no solution for this. In this case start the playback again.

If you run into problems, you can enable debug mode:

  • Open the overflow menu in the upper right corner (three dots)
  • Open the info menu
  • Click five times on the version number
  • Close the menu
  • Open the overflow menu again and open debug menu
  • Enable the checkbox "Log to file"
  • From now on, a logfile is written to the Download folder of your phone/tablet
  • Run the task which leads to a problem again and send the file dreamEPG.log or dreamPlayer.log from the Download folder to me
  • To finish debug mode, open the debug menu and uncheck "Log to file" and restart the app
