doubt that will work as you have to click on the .xml to download it dont you?

you may have to install a web server and host the file yourself.

i been trying to find some documentation on this simpletv but it appears to be scarce.

one would think there would be a way to use a local file path for the epg file.

best i could find is this youtube link where he's dont something(its in spanish or portugese i think) with the epg.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTxyTn6Aewk

i dont know if thats where he maps the epg to a channel or what but seeing you have the software in front of you and cant figure it out kinda puts the ones trying to help that dont even use it sol.

do they not have any support? dont you donate/pay for the iptv links?

latest mts.rs is here..

http://www.webgrabplus.com/content/request-siteini-ex-yu-channnel#commen...

latest cthbpl.com here...(post#14).you may already have this,currently site has no epg lstings so will give same error as your getting.

http://www.webgrabplus.com/content/cthbplcom

tv.com it cannot find you cookie file,did you create one as per the tv.com_instructions.txt

cookie file goes in same folder as you config++.xml and has to be named correctly.

tvhebdo.com ...no idea whats goins on there.its getting french title from the index page and english from the showdetails.

only thying i can suggest is delete you guide.xml and run webgrab to create a new one as it may be corrupt.

try deleting you cookies for the site (or them all),which ever you prefer.when you visit the site you should get a popup asking for zip code and provider.

usually its to the right of TV Listings as you can see in my screenshot.

or

tell me you zip code and provider and i'll create a cookie file for you.

the reason for that is if you upload a file with certain extensions like ini,xml the forum renames them and adds a _(underscore) for security reasons so when you download them you have to remove the underscore.

it looks to be working.

there were a few ini files that needed some fixing to get rid of all the errors and warnings you were getting.

so try these and you shouldnt get a nice clean log file.

cthbpl.com is still down so you will get no shows on index page.

there also a debug i forgot to remove from the cthbpl.com.ini file

open it and find this fine

index_showsplit.modify {substring(debug type=regex)|"(<td.+?</td>)"}

remove the debug so its

index_showsplit.modify {substring(type=regex)|"(<td.+?</td>)"}

also in your log if you see stuff like this

[  Info  ] (   7/8   ) TVGUIDE.CO.UK -- chan. (xmltv_id=BBC1 Wales) -- mode Force
[  Debug ]    skipped

a single skipped is ok,its the way webgrab works.if you open the ini file for that channel and look for the index_start and /or  index_stop line you will most likely see that only index_start is present(many sites only have a start time and no stop time,some have both).when only start time is available,webgrab calculates the stop time by looking for the next show start time.so when it gets to the last show there is no next show to calculate the stop time.thats why you see the skipped message,it skips the last show.

if channels are not getting data...

1 - goto the site itself and find the channel and verify it has epg data.

2 - create a new channels.xml and check if the channel information changed.

3 - ask here.

i really dont see much wrong,you have a few channels that dont exist(from what i see). but it looks to be working.

here a 1 day pull i did with the channels from you config.xml,try it and see if its same results as you getting.

regarding these channels you say you cant get...

you have almost 400 channels in you config,i checked some on you list and they are there and look to be getting data to me.i didnt check them all as i am not going through that many channels to see if they exist.

some channel are getting no shows in index error(not many).have you checked the site to see if it shows data for them?

some channel you may have to find a different source for.there and many site ini for uk.look in the site ini request section.there is a post from not long ago(by doglover i think) where we discussed other sources for uk epg and there is a few site ini's there that are not in the epg channels section.

also i noticed that you have alot of channels where you get the channel and the same channel but with a time offset.

example,

<channel site="uk-sky.com" xmltv_id="History" site_id="1875" update="i">History</channel>

<channel site="uk-sky.com" xmltv_id="History +1 hour" site_id="1891" update="i">History +1 hour</channel>

it is ok to do it as you doing it(2 entries) but your getting that epg data from the site twice(once for each channel).

the more efficient way would be to use the same_as feature that webgrab has...

<channel site="uk-sky.com" xmltv_id="History" site_id="1875" update="i">History</channel>

<channel offset="1" same_as="History" xmltv_id="History +1 hour">History +1 hour</channel>

what this does is webgrab get the data for the history channel as usual(scrubs it from the site).for history+1 webgrab uses the same data(doesnt have to scrub it again from the site) and changes the start/stop time by the offset= value.

this takes a fraction of a second to do where grabbing the data again could possibly take minutes(or longer) depending on the number of days you getting.

you have multiple channels that you are getting data for like this,add that all up and changing them to use the same_as method is a huge reduction in the time it takes to do a channel update.

anyway load my guide.xml(had to zip it to get it under 2MB file size limit) and see if it has similar results from what your getting with yours.

also attatched is my log,i copied my cmd window log,sometimes its better to see whats going on with its output.

install the V1.57 upgrade will fix alot error messages in your log.

for mts.rs it need a high timeout(see the remarks in the ini) so either change it in your weebgrab++config.xml or add the under the site {..} line in the ini..

site {retry=<retry time-out="30">4</retry>}

whatsonindia hasnt worked in awhile,use one of the other india ini's.i think they all have start sports channels.

are you adding a custom path when you start webgrab?

by default it looks in c:\ProgramData\ServerCare\WebGrab\

to use a custom path

you need to run it from the cmd prompt not double click on it.

double click it looks in the above directory fro webgrab++config.xml and ini files.

well your not as it looking in the default directory..

[  Debug ] Reading config file: C:\ProgramData\ServerCare\WebGrab\WebGrab++.config.xml
[  Info  ] found: C:\ProgramData\ServerCare\WebGrab\mts.rs.ini -- Revision 01
[  Info  ] found: C:\ProgramData\ServerCare\WebGrab\bein.net.ini -- Revision 08

so copy the starhubgo.ini to that directory.

so what you did was name it starhubgo.com.ini.ini

i would turn on show file extensions so this wont happen,well least you would see it easily.
