Guide - View 1
This view can be invoked by default using the key, or from another view using the key.
An alternative key can be set in the setup menu item „ Key for the Guide view“. By default, the channels that were selected for scanning or display in the setup menu item „Select bouquets“ are available.
Explanation of the keys
If the „Set timer“ key, i.e. the record key, is pressed, the display of the first line in the individual key actions menu changes as follows:
Select genre icons
A new function enables shows to be assigned a genre classification. There is an automatic classification for „Sport“, „Cinema“ and „Series“.
- Directly from the Guide view: Long press - you can change the genre classification manually on a rolling basis.
- Using the opens a sub-menu for genre classification selection.
Here you can change the classification by a long press of the corresponding digit (0-9) (the list of possible selections is in the legend).
The Genre filters
SmartEPGvu+ already has a predefined (internal) list that assigns the various genres of the programs.
You can use the yellow button to switch the automatic classification filter.
The following filter groups are available:
- User defined
- Entertainment: SERIES, CINEMA, CRIME, SHOW, KIDS (specified by SmartEPGvu+)
- Information: DOCU, NEWS, SPORT, REPORT (specified by SmartEPGvu+)
You can define show filters using a „GuideFilter.txt“ file. The file must be placed in the SmartEPGvu+ settings folder.
If you create the GuideFilter.txt file and write one or more lines with search texts (including ? and *), these shows should disappear from the guide within 3 seconds. The text must be lowercase. An exception are umlauts (ü,ä,ö..), since the vu-Python cannot handle them and therefore they must be in the correct upper/lower case.
In addition, in the GuideFilter.txt you can use „t“, „b“ and „e“ at the beginning of the line to control whether the event name or its short or long description should be searched. If this letter is not specified, the search continues in the name.
„t “ = Text
„b “ = Description and
„e “ = Extended information - Note: All „shows“ that do not have extended information will then be filtered.
For example: b *sheldon* will filter all „shows“ that contain Sheldon in the short description.
