Welcome

WebGrab+Plus is a multi-site incremental xmltv epg grabber. It collects tv-program guide data from selected tvguide sites for your favourite channels.

Program Release
25/08/2020

This beta's contains postprocess V3.0 which main feature is the restoring the ability to match tv-series data in your xmltv with IMDb series data. That ability was lost quite some time ago when IMDb changed how its series episode data was organised. For it to function the latest revision 8 of MDBini imdb.com.ask_series.ini is needed!

A few other additions/fixes of Postprocessor 3.0 :

fixed : a crash when a multi value element has no attribute in the last of the elements (REX & MDB)
added : subpage list for all mdb_url's (needed to get a complete list of all series episodes)
fixed : incorrect folder name for MDB and REX and for mdb.config.xml (linux trouble)
added : mdb_episode will be automatically converted to the site episodesystem value
fixed : match episodenum in ldb if ldb and xmltv episodenum have different episodesystem
added : operation max_elements in 'allocation and presentation' section of REX and MDB config

This beta also automatically removes the license force mode after it ran.

Dear users,

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE !!

We are forced to release a new version to solve a security issue! The consequence of it is that the older versions, V3.0, V3.01 beta , V3.0.2 beta and V3.0.3 beta, will stop checking and updating your license at the first occasion that such an update is scheduled. But within a week as a maximum.
If you experience this, the solution is simple, upgrade to this new one V3.1. All the rest stays the same, your license values are restored.
We are sorry for this inconvenience ..

But besides that security issue, this new version solves a few problems and adds a some features. Among them is an improved SSL handling and a more universal option to run an external grabengine (runexe)

Dear users,

Another beta 3.0.3 … and the addition of ‘custom’ licenses ..

The introduction of a license for the use of the program with release 3.0 has been well accepted by the community. Most users seem to agree with the objectives of it ... to give donating users and registered users some advantages.

But, as was to be expected, not every user is happy with the limitations of the various license types. And, also, it became clear that there roughly two types of users:

* The ‘private’ user who just want epg for his own or family needs in a PVR or IPTV application.
and ..
* The ‘power’ user who , for whatever purpose, needs epg for high numbers of channels and siteini’s and more than two computers to run the program.

To address these shortcomings, we introduce ‘custom’ license. This allows any user to get what he needs.

At the same time, the values of the standard licenses will be tuned to address the needs of the ‘private’ users mainly.

For some current users, this ‘tuning’ may suddenly limit epg grabbing. To avoid this problem, all users with an active ‘donator_license’ will get a ‘custom’ license with the same...

Dear users,

If your license remains 'classic' despite upgraded to V3.0.2 beta, you have two options :
1. Be patient, as soon as your license will be updated (normally once a week) it will be set to the license you are entitled to.
2. If you don't want to wait, run the program one time in license update 'force' mode .
You do that by adding 'f' or 'force' to the license element in the config file :

<license wg-username="username" registered-email="forum email-address" password="password">f</license>

Also, when you still use a previous version of the program and experience license hardware (hw_id) mismatches or other hardware related license issues, upgrade to V3.0.2. To speedup fixing this use the license force mode as explained above. Remember to upgrade to V3.0.2 on both computers if you run WG++ on two computers!

!!! Don't forget to remove the 'force' mode after all of this! (This mode performs unnecessary license updates which will slow down grabbing)
