nowtv.now.com.ini no longer works

Guide update for NowTV in Hong Kong no longer works since the past week or so with the below message. It had been working for a month when I first finished configuring WebGrab++ in my setup.

Any help much appreciated!

Thanks. Now that I got the below warning, what do I need to upgrade? Seems only V2.1 is available on the WebGrabPlus download page...

[Warning ] Incompatible version of /var/services/homes/hts/.wg++/./nowtv.now.com.ini
[Warning ] SW V2.1 should be >= SiteIni V2.1.5:
[Warning ] Upgrade your WebGrab+Plus version to V2.1.5 or higher!! @http://www.webgrabplus.com/download

Thanks both. Unfortunately after upgrading to V2.1.5, though the warning about V2.1.5 is now gone, I still seem to have the same issue:

I noticed there are few things to fix, so be patient

Neo17 you are lucky, although you are not a donator, you will test the new system !! I made a change to use only one site ini for both language, with the new system. I have still to add few elements, although in chinese channels there are some "human" errors. Will pm you to explain how to set the new system. Attached a preview of the guide.xml of the subject siteini with channels in english/chinese

i think the only way to get to the bottom of this is to send it to cern.
they can crash webgrab data together at close to the speed of light.
surely this will reveal all the secrets...

Hi

I was trying to generate the updated nowtv channels.xml based on this guide

http://www.webgrabplus.com/documentation/configuration/sitechannelsxml

but I got a "[Error ] Unable to update channel dummy" error?

It did go into creation mode:

[Warning ] !! SiteIni nowtv.now.com.ini in channelfile creation mode !!!

Any hints here please as to how to update the xml?

Cheers

k.

Hello, I an still unable to generate the list of channels.

From here http://www.webgrabplus.com/documentation/configuration/sitechannelsxml

Using these directions, I tried adding _update_c_/update_ (where the underscores are the GT or LT symbols) to the WebGrab++config.xml
But got this error?

[Error ] WG.Common.InvalidConfigException: [Error ] Corrupt config file[Error ] ' ' is an unexpected token. The expected token is 'DOCTYPE'. Line 6, position 3.
at WGconsole.h..ctor(String 0)
[Critical]
at WGconsole.h..ctor(String 0)
at WGconsole.G.1(String[] 0)
[Critical] Config syntax exception:

[Critical] message:

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Never mind I used the old way removing the * in the channel generation file.
Suggest the database is updated.

Thanks
