Pluto Channels?

Anybody know where I can find webgrab channels for any of the following wonky Pluto channels?

Pluto TV Ghost Dimension

Pluto TV Ghost Hunters

Pluto TV Police Women

Pluto TV Beverly Hillbillies

I'm still new to this stuff. How do you guys go about finding what site has channel info for a particular channel? Right now I've been looking at tvguide, etc. Seems like there should be an easier way. So, any tips on how to find a site that has the channel I want, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You left out a few steps here. Exactly how does one go from http://webgrabplus.com/epg-channels to getting a particular channel that you are searching for? For example, how would you find the PlutoTV channels from that website? It has a ton of stuff and I could go blind looking through it all. Hint!, feel free to put your reply in verbose mode instead of terse mode.

Surely there is a better way than looking at all the lists of channels on that website.

Reading through code is part of understanding this program, the format is easy to read once you learn. There are two easy options, open the channellist.xml for each site scan for channel (Use the "FIND" option in your text editor), or http://www.webgrabplus.com/epg-channels search (US,UK,Networks....etc) click on the site name Pluto is under NetworK section i.e. pulto.tv.E and itll show you the channel list in a user friendly format. This forum is full of people willing to helpful but nobody is going to post a step by step.

the easy way is to set in config update=c and create a new channel list, as described in online documentation
http://www.webgrabplus.com/documentation/configuration/sitechannelsxml
as we do not keep updated channel list you may not find a new pluto channel.
If you mean search a channel name in siteini.pack, well there are tons of tools, i use ultrafinder on my pc, set to search file type .xml and search the word for a channel.
Or i miss-understood your question?

Thanks to jbetbetbet and mat8861. You gave me what I needed (which was an overview of the process you use to locate specific channels).

My apologies, if I came across as asking you to do my work for me in tracking down channels. That was not my intent. I wanted to see how you guys approach finding EPG channels, because what I was doing was slow and painful. Your explanations went a long way to give me the guidance I needed.

I will read and (hopefully) learn from your posts.

BTW, thanks to you, I think I have located those pluto channels.
