XMLTV


XMLTV is an emerging, open-source format for EPG data, based in part on RFC 2838, and maintained

by the XMLTV Project. An EPG data file that complies with this format contains structured records

that describe the attributes of episodes and channels individually.


Cisco DMS supports EPG data subscriptions that retrieve a single gzip-compressed XMLTV

file from an ftp server.
