tvtv.us.ini fix

Hi, does anyone have the new ini for tvtv.us.ini? I am receiving error tvtv.us does not allow epg grabbing. I have not had any problems with this ini for a long time and it just popped up yesterday.

Thanks

actualy in the main folder the tvtv.us works... but when i put in another configuration are unable to grab...
i exclude so an IP block.
could be due to cookies or something that keeps track of the grab?

i have this problem yesterday on the tvtv.us.ini in main folder, i update the webgrab to the 2.1.10 after seemed to resolve, but today i have issue on other similar configuration (/EPG/configuration)

if your using the run icon that's your problem as it looks in the default locations only.
to run webgrab with files in any other location you need to do it on command line or create a bat file.

/path/to/webgrab.exe /path/to/wg_config.xml

if your path has spaces put it in quotes.

in this location..

C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\WebGrab+Plus\Guide_US_PACIFIC

inside this folder put your wg_config.xml and any ini that it will use.
that's all you need.

the warning about not want you to grab data mean nothing,read about it in the FAQ section.

it don't matter where the files are it don't change the fact that the site doesn't want remote software to access their site.
it doesn't mean u cannot grab data,they just don't want you to.

no idea as not work could mean anything.

do you take your car to garbage and simply say "it broke" and expect it to get fixed.

channel update="i" site="tvtv.ca" site_id="36625D/9705" xmltv_id="RDS 2">RDS 2

with 3 different site.ini: tvtv.ca.ini,tvtv.us.ini,tvtvP.us.ini (same tvtv.us.ini only with different time zone)
when i run in the main folder the two tvtv.us.ini tvtvP.us.ini works the tvtv.ca.ini give me warning... how recognize website my grab?
i put the same ini, the same wg_config in the WebGrab+Plus\Guide_US_PACIFIC and run program "C:\Program Files (x86)\WebGrab+Plus\bin\WebGrab+Plus.exe" C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\WebGrab+Plus\Guide_US_PACIFIC i receive warning for all the 3 channel

you think problem is the webgrab installation or there s some changes also in the website?

most likely because webgrab save the response for robot checks in a file.
so it was saved when the site didn't check for this in your main folder.

since then the site enabled robot check and your new folder doesn't have this file and webgrab created a new one with the result it the site doesn't want you grabbing data.

delete the robots folder in ur main folder and u shud get the message there also.

the bigger problem I see is the no index error.

the robot check will not cause webgrab not to grab data.
if nothing works no matter where it is then I say ini is broken.
I don't use it and aint bothering to download it,ask the one who made it to look at it.

its a good indication... the difference is in the tvtv.us.robots
working:
###### tvtv.us.robots
# No data!
# Errore del server remoto: (407) Richiesta autenticazione proxy.
# Dummy robots-data created by WebGrab+Plus:

User-agent: *
Disallow:

not working
###### tvtv.ca.robots
User-agent: *
Disallow: /tvm/
Disallow: /gn/
User-agent: WebGrab+Plus
Disallow: /

theres a way to fix?

copy your robots folder to your new directory.

another solution I just tesed that worked is inside your robots folder edit the file for that site and delete all the disallow line and save it again.

this is the first time I have seen a site block grabbing because of the robots check.
I guess they are changing their ways.
the robots file is created when wg hasn't used the ini before(like new installation or first time using ini) and it saves the response to a file so it doesn't have to do the check everytime(it check the robots folder to see if has already been done).
your just lucky it doesn't do this check everytime and update the file.

Today I verified that tvtv.us.ini was no longer working.
I made some modifications and it worked again for me.
I am still learning how to fix these files.
if it is useful for the community here are the files you fix.

the provided tvtv.us.ini file does not generate a channel list correctly, I have attached a fixed ini file that will do this.
be sure to rename the file to tvtv.us.ini and place into the USA folder under sitepacks

read the WebGrab+ FAQ, under problem solving, What means "!! -- Warning :site doesn't allow EPG grabbing !!"?

you can disregard "site does not allo epg grab..." it's just a warning. Now to check why you get no index page, we should check what siteini revision and which channel you are trying to get. If you post wour webgrab.config and .log we may help you.

Hopefully it's OK for me to add on to this thread. I'm having the same issue, however this is a brand new setup and I'm pretty new to this.
I tried using the posted ini file, but go. I'm trying to generate my xml file for my area, and am not sure I am doing it correctly.

You didn't update siteini.pack, in your log you should have revision 3 and please pay attention to remarks in siteini.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I didn't realize there was a more recent site pack, I thought the one I grabbed in this thread was the most recent. You fixed my issue.

I'm using Rev3. I have made sure the robots file has just the 2 lines and is set to read only. I am now getting thos error though...

[Critical]
Access to the path 'C:\Users\xxxxx\Desktop\WebGrab+Plus\robots\tvtv.us.robots' is denied.
[Critical]
at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)
at System.IO.File.InternalDelete(String path, Boolean checkHost)
at WGconsole.Q.CheckRobots(String 0, c 1)
at WGconsole.G.1(String[] 0)
[Critical] Unhandled Exception

Any ideas where I am going wrong?

My tvtv.us.robots file contains just these two lines:
User-agent: *
User-agent: WebGrab+Plus

...and it is set to read only.

When not in read only the file robots file is overwriten. When set to read only, webgrab throws the access denied error.

It doesnt bother me now though as I'm using tvguide.com instead

don't know what setting you are using, in windows i set to read only no errors and grabs fine. WG++ should not give you errors if the file is read only....what are you using linux or windows ? What error do you have ?

I'm using Windows. I have right-clicked the robots file and set read-only in the properties. The error that webgrab gives is...

[Critical]
Access to the path 'C:\Users\xxxxx\Desktop\WebGrab+Plus\robots\tvtv.us.robots' is denied.
[Critical]
at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)

at WGconsole.G.1(String[] 0)
[Critical] Unhandled Exception

EDIT: However I seem to have now fixed it. I deleted the existing robots file and then ran webgrab again. Obviously this then failed but it created a new robots file with the unwanted lines. I then removed those lines, saved and set as read-only. Now it works fine. I'm guessing it just didn't like the old robots file for some reason.

you can make a copy of robot file and name it tvtv.ca.robots if it is the robot file you talking about.
