tv.wp.pl Changing the program time?

For a while now, after updating my Plex, I have had an issue with EPG timing. Everything has shifted by 2 hours. Is it possible to edit a globally downloaded EPG?

I downloaded again and unfortunately nothing has changed, the file seems to be working fine:
<'programme start="20210928080000 +0000" stop="20210928113500 +0000" channel="TVN HD">
<'title lang="pl">Dzień Dobry TVN

As you will see in the picture (attachment), I have an offset of 2 hours. Maybe Plex is doing something wrong.

@ mat8861 I checked on my other EPG tool "Owi2Plex" and there the EPG downloaded from Enigma2 contains information plus two hours.

Owi2Plex:
<'title lang="en">Dzień Dobry TVN
<'/programme>
<'programme channel="15821" start="20210929113500 +0200" stop="20210929114500 +0200">
<'length units="minutes">10

This works fine and displays fine in Plex.

Data downloaded by WebGrabPlus in Docker marked with the version WebGrab+Plus/w MDB & REX Postprocess -- version V3.2.1.0:
<'programme start="20210929080000 +0000" stop="20210929113500 +0000" channel="TVN HD">
<'title lang="pl">Dzień Dobry TVN

As we can see, there is no information:
20210929080000 +0200

Can I add it to the file somehow tv.wp.pl.E.ini? Does it require additional file conversion?

you probably have old guide.xml ( i guess in config you have update incremental), try to use force or delete it and re-run
it's ok here
programme start="20211003211500 +0200" stop="20211003221500 +0200" channel="TVP 1"

Maybe because I added programs in the file tv.wp.pl.E.channels.xml which was not standard.

Did you update siteini ? i didn't change revision because is not really a change of revision, but make sure your siteini has timezone=Europe/Warsaw
as the one in git https://github.com/SilentButeo2/webgrabplus-siteinipack/blob/master/site...

After changing to Warsaw, he gets the message = /. Man, how is it that everything works and suddenly stops.

mono above 5.0 is ok...unable to decrypt is usually bad copy of a file or modified (in your case)
http://www.webgrabplus.com/faq#faq_5419
see if extracting this zip where you need works...with winscp set binary transfer or delete siteini.pack and then run .../.wg++/bin/SiteIni.Pack.Update.sh

@mat8861

I need your help again.

In Poland, the time has changed from summer to winter -1 h. Since then, Plex connected with Xteve shows me the EPG by one hour backwards incorrectly.

EPG I create myself with xTeve, here is its code:

<'programme channel="1000" start="20211124042000 +0100" stop="20211124050500 +0100">
<'title lang="pl">Przysięga
<'title lang="en">Yemin
<'desc lang="pl">Po śmierci matki mieszkająca na wsi Reyhan (Özge Yagiz) jest zdana na siebie. Dziewczynę odwiedza przybrany wuj, bogaty biznesmen Hikmet (Berkant Müftüler), i namawia do ślubu ze swoim synem Emirem (Gokberk Demirci). Początkowo niechętna, młoda kobieta zostaje niejako zmuszona do złożenia obietnicy, że wyjdzie za nieznajomego mężczyznę.(n)<'/desc>

Since I do not believe that someone will help me, I have a question whether it is possible to manipulate the time of the downloaded EPG in the file?

Maybe I need to go back to the previous file with UTZ (+0200 time), unfortunately I don't have it anymore. I see that you have replaced the file by encoding it again and displaying it on the website by +

well you can modify time with xmltv_time_modify (postprocess) https://github.com/SilentButeo2/webgrabplus-siteinipack/tree/master/post...
then the correct timezone is not UTC or UTC+02:00, but timezone=Europe/Warsaw wich will automatically change DST.

Hello. This issue comes up with several INIs.
I think what happens is the site automatically adjusts times to YOUR time zone.
Is there any way we could get an INI setting that tells WG to use local time? eg "...|timezone=Local|..."
This would make the INIs correct for everyone... as long as they have their time zone set correctly.

If you are for eample in Czech Republic you can set Europe/Prague, but ususally siteini are already set to get proper timezone.
The alternative is to use post-process xmltv_time so to set different siteini/channels to the time you want.

This INI is only correct if you are in Poland or any country that shares the same time zone.
Instead of us editing the time zone or using some kind of post process... Why not add an INI option to use the local time of the machine doing the grab?

if you are not in Poland the program calculate the difference http://www.webgrabplus.com/faq#faq_1238
some players do not calculate the time difference

I think I am doing a bad job explaining. let me try and show. I tried 3 different timezons in the INI.

Europe/Warsaw
...start="20220113050000 +0100" stop="20220113060000 +0100"...

Europe/London
...start="20220113050000 +0000" stop="20220113060000 +0000"...

US/Eastern
...start="20220113050000 -0500" stop="20220113060000 -0500"...

I live in London timezone and "20220113050000" is correct with 0 offset.
So I make assumption that if the INI is working correctly in CET, then it must be adjusting the time to match the country you connect from, meaning the offset is not needed for this INI.

I just tried the new INI and I still have to change it to "Europe/London" for it to be correct.

that is correct, it means that the show Przysięga 20220114042000 +0100 needs an hour to be added to be in timezone Europe/Warsaw, infact if you go on the site it shows
05:20
Przysięga
as explained here : http://www.webgrabplus.com/faq#faq_1238

in your epg player are you getting this show at 4.20 ?

I do not use that channel. I check another channel though and a show like this "20220114223500 +0100" shows as "9:35" in Kodi using TVH backend.

Here is image of the website vs what EPG shows... The website shows correct time but the EPG does not unless I use "Europe/London"

this means your player tvheadend or kodi or whatever doesn't consider the +0100 to be added. As you can see i am in the same timezone of warsaw and the show on the site is at 23:35.
So your player need to have correct time, it should add the +0100 to the xml time, if it doesn't you can use the post process xmltv_time and convert it so the show in xml will be "20220114233500 +0000" (for you in london "20220114223500 +0000 and not at 21:35) and you will have the correct time in your player

Is there any way to test where the problem is?
I have many CET EET some Asian and USA channels and they are all correct.

Example: Swedish channel from "dagenstv.com" "20220114220000 +0100" shows correctly as "09:00" in Kodi

Just adding to this discussion as I also use xTeVe and Plex.

As @mat8861 had mentioned, you could adjust the time offset using xmltv_time_modify prior to loading the EPG file into xTeVe and later sent to Plex. xTeVe doesn't display any of the programme data so I typically cannot verify that the start and stop times have been properly shifted until after the EPG guide has been loaded into Plex.

Conveniently, the actively maintained version of xTeVe introduced the ability to adjust the "Teleguide timeshift" for any active channel. There are several other new features that has greatly improved the performance for running xTeVe and making channel integration with Plex less taxing.

The active xTeVe project: https://github.com/SCP002/xTeVe
Latest version: xTeVe 2.5.0: https://github.com/SCP002/xTeVe/releases
