    Downloading EPG for M3U Playlist doesn't work

    I have found it to be impossible to download the EPG in the BuzzTV 2 app when using the M3U Playlist. I thought at first it was this server just not feeding the data but after trying other third party EPG URL's and trying other 3rd party services and third party software such as Perfect Player, it is in fact the BuzzTV 2 app that will not download the guide when using a playlist. You get a perpetual "loading EPG..." message.

    I know Buzz is focused on the what seems like hundreds of new boxes that all basically do the same function, but are there any plans in the works to update existing boxes to fix bugs in the software? Is there possibly some step I may be missing or a trick to get the EPG to load when using the M3U Playlist?

    I'm having the same loading Problem, but it hangs on loading the movie listings.
    *recommend you make a Local m3u with just the TV items, and use alternate guide source.

    Just FYI

    that's why I said in another post that I was not impressed with their update. I just realized that they deleted the post hahahaha
    But look at the problem you have with a simple m3u that is a text and the xml now imagines running mpd files widiv or script for everything you have to use third-party applications the same as any other android box

    They fixed some issues concerning m3u setups with all the 4000 series models.The file for the fix has not been released publicly yet, but I have been beta testing it a few days now.
    I do not know if they will be looking at the 3000 series.
    I will dig mine out and try these m3u functions on it and then will report results to the Team.
    I can not promise anything as for results, but I can try.

    suport, your thread was indeed deleted.
    Comparing the 4900 model to a 12 dollar android is unacceptable and I did tell you that. So the result was that the thread was deleted.
    You are a respected member here at iptvtalk suport and that goes double for how I feel about you, but you did step over the line with that 12 dollar android comment

    Just an FYI, ...Reply speed today is still the same at approx. 30kb./sec.
    *m3u playlist size - 5.1mb.
    *Full panel_api request return size - 8.4mb. (What is requested by MOL/DOL apps., stb emu, or similar apps, upon startup).

    Do the math!

    Nowhere will you see download speeds of 30kb/sec, ...for anything!
    "Remember 14400 bps modems?"
    Ex; Click to see a small picture, ...wait 10 to 15 seconds.

    **FYI- Other apps may handle the startup differently, so may operate more quickly, but on the Buzz 3000, you cannot start to watch TV, for example, until the Channels, then the VOD listings, then the EPG, loads completely.
