    UPDATE Apr. 26th 2020

    Spanish Channels.

    I had some time over the weekend, so I decided to get additional subscription for Schedules Direct and start EPG guide for the Spanish speaking channels.
    I'll adding new channels as we go. Because of that, the guide got a bit bigger from 32MB to around 49MB.

    Just clear your guide data and it should populate with new channels info.

    If you are familiar with Notepad++ editor, you can easily reduce the size of your file, by removing unnecessary data.

    -Load xml file into Notepad++
    -Click the "Binocular" Icon (Find/Replace/Mark)
    -Click "Mark" Tab, select "Regular Expression" Sort format and enable "Bookmark Line"

    In the "Find what:" window, copy and paste in the following string of Search terms;
    Code:
    <value|</value|<actor|<writer|<producer|<director|<length|<episode-num|<rating|</rating>|<guest>|<star-rating|</star-rating>|<stereo|<audio|</audio|<previously-shown|<subtitles|<new />|<video>|</video>|<quality>|<presenter>|<aspect>|<url>
    -Click "Mark All"

    Program will parse your file and Bookmark (blue dot), every line that starts with any of the Terms (separated by the pipe " | " symbol).
    On the Notepad++ menu, click "Search/ Bookmark/ Remove Bookmarked Lines".
    When done, save your file.

    *Size will be reduced from 40Mb, to around 12Mb.
    *Speeds up file loading time considerably.
    (Add or remove any terms you want)

    * ...Nice work!

    Shooty,

    Thank you buddy for the heads up about Notepad++. Will have to check it out. Sadly I don't use Windows but I can always run Notepad++ in a VM or maybe find an alternative to Notepad++ for Linux. Plus I would have to find a way to make it run with a cron as I do with the guide and Sed to replace[*] with [NEW] in EPG. Maybe small bash script will do. Will have to look into it for sure. Makes sense to get rid of all that unnecessary data in EPG.
