Enigma2 & Xtream Editor Plug-In with Catch-Up support

The plug-in helps you to load the channel list, picon and EPG onto the Enigma2 box. Only EPG from us are supported.  However, you should first adjust the "EPG ID" in your channel list to the EPG source.

Since version 2.10 you can also send DVB channels to the editor and edit them there. You can assign the DVB channels our EPG ID. These DVB channels get our EPG data as well as Picon

Prerequisite for a functioning EPG is the EPG-ID assignment

Preparing your playlist:

  • Create a list or line
  • Assign each channel to an EPG-ID (EPG-ID assignment)
  • Activate Parental control in the groups (Edit category  -> Censored)

Preparation of Enigma2 Box:

  • Set the correct time
  • Activate multi-bouquet. Should be found under Settings. For most distributions, this option is already set.
  • Activate Parental Control and enter a PIN. The code from the Xtream Editor can not be imported. You must specify this directly in the box.

Install Xtream Editor Plug-in (SSH Client):

  • Connect to your box using an SSH or Telnet client like Putty

  • Run this command:

    IPK OE1.6 - OE2.0 like OpenaATV, OpenPli, OpenVix,....

    wget -O /tmp/ "" && chmod 755 /tmp/ && /tmp/

    DEB OE2.5 like DreamOS, NewNigma2

    wget -O /tmp/ "" && chmod 755 /tmp/ && /tmp/

Alternative installation(FTP):

  • Download the ZIP file To your computer.
  • Unpack the ZIP and copy the IPK or DEB file into the "/tmp" folder via FTP. The DEB file is intended for OE2.5.
  • Install the IPK or DEB on your Enigma2 box. Enigma2 is available in different versions (Images). How to manually install a plug-in can be found in the forum of the distribution. Ex. OpenATV
  • Restart Enigma2.

Configure Xtream Editor Plug-in (Basic):

  • Open the Xtream Editor plug-in
  • You will see an APP code.
  • Link your Line- or List-ID with this code. Go to the editor in one of your playlists and paste this code.
  • Press YELLOW to load the configuration and the bouquets to the box. Then the plugin is now connected to your playlist.
  • Press BLUE to get EPG.

1. Export DVB-Channels
This sends all bouquets not created by the Xtream Editor to the editor. The editor creates new groups with the name of the bouquet and the app code. Example: Favorites - A1B2C3D4
You can then distribute the DVB-C, DVB-S and DVB-T channels in different groups. This allows you to insert DVB channels into the group of IPTV channels. After the next import, they will be sent back to the box.

Important for PRO users. You must first enable the DVB import in the editor. In the device overview

2. Show log
If you have problems with the import, you might find the reason there. Is very important for our support.

3. Update plugin
When a new version of the plugin is released, you will receive a message after the import. You can then click MENU and select this option. The plugin will be updated automatically and the box will be restarted.

4. Import EPG
The EPG data is loaded

5. Import Bouquets
The bouquets (without EPG data) are loaded

6. Delete all IPTV & DVB Bouquets
This deletes all bouquets. Even those who did not create Xtream Editor. So handle it carefully.

7. Reset Config
The plugin is reset. New app code is generated. Then you need to connect the code to a playlist

8. Clear EPG
The EPG.dat and cache will be deleted.


What is catch-up? Catch-Up Service is offered by many Proviedern that uses XtreamCodes server software. This gives you the opportunity to watch missed shows. Others call it Tv Archive or RePlay

After installing  you will see an additional menu item "XE Catch-up" in the plug-in menu and extensions.
Start the plugin "XE Catchup" while the channel is running and support the catchup serviceCatch-up support only works with API Lines

Channels with catchup service are now marked with an "[+]" in the channel list.

On your remote press Menu > setup >usage & gui > hotkey setup > press red key on your remote (the key is optional but i thought red button was best) > in pluggins select xe catch up > press green button to save > exit right out to the channel Now you will find when you are watching a catch up channel if u press the red button it brings up the catch up list
