Free to Air – Australian XML TV Guide

This was the collaborative effort of a number people to provide the XML Guide to Plex users in Australia. Big Shout out to Mark and Michelle who made this all possible. The github site with their work can be found here.

The following links are for Freeview Guide for Australian Cities. This was primarily designed for Plex users and the instructions can be found on the Plex Website for using an XML Guide.

To help us track any questions and request please submit them on the github page. Before submitting any questions;
a) Please rescan the the channels in the Plex Live TV & DVR setup for all tuners.
b) Please include the region you are in to assist in any troubleshooting.

  1. Hi guys, is there any chance of this being updated to include the new Radio stations?

    Thanks so much for putting it together by the way!

  2. Hi

    The guide works fine but I can’t get HD channels to work in Plex, they all map back to SD channels, even though HD guide is mapped to HD channels.

    Everything works fine with IceTV’s feed. Any ideas?

    1. Hi Sam,
      You can manually override in advanced setting in Plex recordings to specify the channel. Can you please let us know what region you are in so we can investigate?

  3. guide works perfect except the tv show neighbours on 10 peach always shows up as a movie and not the show making it impossible to series record,

  4. The second line of the XML file

    !DOCTYPE tv SYSTEM “xmltv.dtd”

    Makes Excel and Access reject the import of these files. It would be so nice if that line wasn’t there.

    I realise this is a niche thing, but I figure it doesn’t hurt to ask.

  5. Hi
    Thanks for this, I tried IceTv but it does not give access to all channels. this is far better
    Thanks so much!!
    Damien

  6. Yeah wow, thanks very much.
    Just switched over from IceTV.

    Do you have a PayPal link for donation? I’ll set a reminder for a month and if all is working well I’d be happy to throw $5 your way.

  7. Very nicely put together, kudos all round. This is so much better and (so far) more accurate than the FreePG feed (R.I.P.)
    I would be happy to help any way I can (30+ years in software dev ?) if you need it

    1. HI Andrew

      Happy to take any contributions on github!! Please submit any changes or updates and I’ll happily look at them!

      Thanks

  8. Can I request a few changes/updates?

    * ABC KIDS Listen icon URL is going to a page not found
    * 9 Rush is a new channel. Would it be possible to get feed and icon?
    * Would it be possible to get a 7mateHD icon?

    Thank you so much for this service!

    1. Thanks Kirk,
      Can you please let us know what region you are in, it makes life easier for all requests thanks. We’ll look into what we can do.

    2. ABC KIDS Listen icon URL is going to a page not found – will be fixed in the next release.

      For new channels, in Plex you need to do a rescan to get them in Plex. Plex does not automatically add channels. If this doesn’t add the channel please let me know.

      Please make sure your mapping in the setup is mapped to the 7mateHD feed not the regular 7mate selection, that should give you the icon. If it doesn’t please let us know
