Schedule of the EPG update


I have asked before but didn't really find the answer I was looking for.

The problem is this: I am grabbing my EPG data from a dutch website ( to provide me with 1 weeks TV data.
I then use the Gestion importer to make this data into EPG data that Sage understands.

So far so good.

I have this process scheduled to refresh every morning at 4 am.

However, I can't seem to control the way in which Sage actually takes the data and updates the Guide

This wasn't too much of a problem as long as Sage updated the Guide at least once a day.
Lately, however, it seems that the data this website produces changes during the day.
So, I would like to update the Guide early in the evening, say 6 or 7pm.

It's no problem to schedule the grabber and the importer, but Sage seems harder to control.
I tried restarting it. It then indeed does an update, but the next update is in like 8 hours, instead of 24?
I have tried disabling and enabling a channel, which does the sames thing.
It updates, but it never sets the next update to be in 24 hours.

Is there some easy way to have it update at 7pm every day instead of this irregular 'schedule'?

This FAQ describes how to set the update for a specific time.

But, it sounds like you have multiple lineups and are only setting one to update now & the other one is updating at its later scheduled time.

SageTV Open Source v9 is available.
- Read the SageTV FAQ. Older PDF User's Guides mostly still apply: SageTV V7.0 & SageTV Studio v7.1.

I have 2 tuners, but only one line-up.
I'll have a look at what's in the FAQ, although it still doesn't explain why my updates don't simply occur every 24 hours...

I think I managed to do it.
Will have to wait until tomorrow 7pm to be sure

I found 2 entries for epg_data_sources/####/expanded_until so I changed them both to be in 23 hours from now, which would be 7pm in my timezone.
