Buyukbang Panel Pugin v1.2.1 for Enigma2 - English Description
Buyukbang Panel v1.2 is released for international usage with its unique features! v1.0 and v1.1 versions were initially tested by Turkish users, and at this stage we improved Buyukbang Panel's stability, added more features and support for more STB and images. You can see all screenshots in a slideshow by clicking the above picture. Please read below descriptions for the details on the features and usage instructions. You can report all bugs you find, share your thoughts and suggestions and read other users' comments by using "Comment" link.

Copies EPG data from source channels to the same channels without EPG data on other satellites or packages. For example Turkish users currently use Buyukbang Panel to copy EPG to 50+ channels on Turksat 42E from 7E.
You need to create a bouquet named EPG and insert source and destination channels in it to use this feature. Ordering should be as follows: SourceChannel, DestinationChannel1, SEPARATOR (note: anything can be typed as a separator), SourceChannel, DestinationChannel1, DestinationChannel2, DestinationChannel3, - , ... and so on. As you can see you need to start with a source channel, then you can define one or more destination channels for a source channel and you need to use a separator between mapping groups.
Here are some important notes on this functionality:
1- Buyukbang panel does EPG Copy process in only one step without generating, exporting, importing any XML file. Everything happens on RAM, this is what makes Buyukbang Panel so fast!.
2- This functionality can be scheduled to run at a specific time with "Scheduled EPG Copy" or run periodically between user defined intervals with with "Periodic EPG Copy".
3- It's suggested to use a source channel with EPG data as the startup service. Buyukbang Panel has an option named "Startup copy delay" to adjust waiting time for receiving of EPG data on startup.
4- Buyukbang Panel automatically detects supported EPG import methods provided by the image being used and chooses the fastest method. PLi/Oudeis/CrossEPG patches are supported. If the image contains one of these patches, EPG copy process does not require any restart to import EPG and everything completed on the fly. But if there is no EPG patch provided, Buyukbang Panel generates a new epg.dat, asks user confirmation for a restart, after the restart EPG is loaded. Additionally Buyukbang Panel uses twisted thread if the image supports it. With twisted thread method, EPG copy process runs on a different CPU thread, so that there will be freezing on Enigma2 user interface freezing during the process.
5- If you have any problem with EPG copy process on an image with PLi/Oudeis/CrossEPG patches, you can activate "Force CrossEPG patch usage" option which disables PLi/Oudeis support and forces CrossEPG patch usage.
6- All settings can be changed on a user friendly interface.
7- You can easily show and save all process details by using the log screen. Saved log file is generated as /tmp/buyukbangpanel.log .
Notes on EPG Bouquet: You can insert - markers while you are editing EPG bouquet with Enigma2 channel list by using menu button of remote controller. It you are using dbedit'te to edit EPG bouquet, just use "Insert marker" option from the right click menu while pointing on the bouquet. You can use whatever you want as a marker, there is no restriction for that. You can see a sample EPG bouquet below :
EPG Overlap Problem: Enigma2 imports EPG by using NID, SID ve TSID parameters. So EPG of the channels with the same NID, SID ve TSID parameters unfortunately overlaps. If you have this kind of problem in your EPG bouquet, there is a method to prevent the overlapping. You need to edit your channel list with DreamEdit and differentiate the parameters of the problematic channels.
You can see how to use this method on the following screenshots. Select the channel from the channel list, right click, select "Show/Edit Details"option. Now you'll have a screen like the one on the second screenshot. Here, use different values as "Service ID" to differentiate channel parameters and click "Save" button. Now delete the old channel from your EPG bouquet and add the new one and that's all! Be sure that Buyukbang Panel reload your new EPG bouquet which depends on the "Read EPG bouquet" option. If you didn't change its default value, you need a restart to load new EPG bouquet:
Links EPG data source channels to the same channels without EPG data on other satellites or packages. Link EPG does not replicate EPG data on RAM and just link it dynamically, which differs Link EPG from Copy EPG. There will be no RAM usage or epg.dat file creation, which is good in terms of system resources.
Another advantage of this option is that Link EPG updates EPG changes of source channels in real time. So you always have the latest EPG!
But there is a disadvantage, too: Setting this option as "ALL EPG Queries" causes enigma2 always try to record it from the source channel instead of the destination channel when you want to record the event selected in the single / multi EPG browsers. Setting this option as "Only Infobar and EPG Info" does not have this disadvantage, but it does not cover single / multi EPG browsers and EPG searches.
Buyukbang Panel uses "Only Infobar and EPG Info" option as default. Because this solves "Infobar EPG Flickering" problem. This problem occurs when EPG data on RAM and on the loaded epg.dat differs. You will not have such a problem with Buyukbang Panel!
Link EPG will be very useful for the images that have problems with Copy EPG. If you encounters such a situation, just disable Copy EPG and set Link EPG as "ALL EPG Queries". This option provides EPG linking of single/multi EPG lists of the target channels to the source channels in real time.
Filters out unwanted EPG broadcasts like "Current" and "Next". You can add/remove filtered EPG titles to "EPG titles" option by using the user interface. This user defined list is case insensitive. You can add different text to this list by using comma as seperator between entries. Example screenshots of the result given below:
Fix EPG Encoding:
Fixes EPG encoding problems by querying Kingofsat for selected language and adding missing entries to encoding.conf at startup once a day. Everything happens automatically on the background without any user intervention. All languages and encoding formats are supported.
Hide Zap Errors:
Hides SID/PAT zap errors displayed on the screen after switching to wrongly modified / broken channels. This is a integrated feature of PLi image and Buyukbang Panel provides this to the other images!
Startup to Standby:
Takes STB to standby on startup. Differs from statuptostandby plugin by providing an option to exclude enigma2 restarts.
Performs scheduled restart, reboot, shutdown and standby operations. You can choose specific time and day of the week as the schedule.
