There is a problem with the time. It's OK on the Extended Epg Info Window, but wrong on the now/next window.

I will fix it and send you for test becouse in my computer true. It is about timezones i think.
To display true fonts please install Calibri font

It seems to work ok (haven't tested it much yet) but first thing i noticed are the texts in polish they are displayed wrong (same as with DD built in epg) so here is my question is there a way to map correct letters to the wired symbols ?
Something like character mapping table ?
I'm asking couse in lng files there is nothing i could identify as font mapping list.

"Reason" i think your problen is solved.
Please test the osd and inform me.
Epg event name character fault coming from dvbdream. but new version corrected extended epg. I corrected current event name but not following. (Becouse of programming issue) In the future version it will bel fixed too

Re download the module from above.

It looks nice, good work.
It seems to work ok (haven't tested it much yet) but first thing i noticed are the texts in polish they are displayed wrong (same as with DD built in epg)
The same here with Slovak/Czech characters.

Few suggestions:

- In window mode the text size is too small, so I suggest to enlarge text size for: actual time, perhaps also date and for EPG text and replace or remove less important items like: provider, satelit, frequency, resolution. Perhaps two main modes would solve this issue - but advanced mode should have larger window

- EPG text and time should be vice versa IMO, also the start time is enough for basic mode at least, since the next program has the end time of the firts program

Bug? - the OSD is always active when I set it to 10 sec.

if you didnt try last uploaded download for wrong epg text problem.
we wrote something about it above.
I dont think text sizes are small.what is the width and height in pixel in window mode. try to send a screenshot. if everybody thinks small so i will take care of it.
about 10 second bug. i tried 10 second but i couldnt see a bug. it removes osd.
if anybody see its a bug warn me and i will work on it.

- I found just one link here, in the first post, I have downloaded it few minutes ago (link to the problem).

- Text sizes are not good, channel name is large (perhaps too large) and the EPG text is small, also the colors are not the best (blue/green). Other info is even worse and I think it's not needed for most users, therefore I've suggested to enlarge the EPG text and remove the other info. Anyway, it's just MY opinion.

- 10 second bug - now it works good, strange... * so it's back, now it's set to 4.5 sec. but it's on for more than 3 minutes, but I can't reproduce it.

- What is "K" / "G"?? In English it should be L/Q (level / quality). :?

Channell and epg text sizes are my choices. i didn't see anybody complains about it. If i see more people complain about it. i try to make larger them.
About colors if you have a better idea you can draw and send me. if i decide your design is better i will work on it. K & G is turkish names Q & L. i will change them to english. in addition, whole backgrounds are bitmap files. you can change them or redesing using graphic softwares. Bitmap path is "Modules\Secosd\"

I suggest increasing the size of the extended info font, or make it customizable through the options. Maybe also making the width of the window fit DD output window. Also a way to display the next program extended info.

I calculated the longest extended epg info some channels fill the epg place as no empty place exist. so we cant larger the epg font. But in future version i will prepare a screen to edit fonts, position etc. Then you can build your own theme :) But first i have to make a visual channel navigator.
