USA Channels

Hello

I have been using TV Guide and not get a 403 Forbidden error.  I also tried Schedules Direct and it's painfully slow...  hours per channel.  I tried DirectTV.ini and no data is collected.

What .ini should people use for USA channels?  (For some of the channels I can use the Canaidan listings (AE, TLC, CNN etc...) but many channels have Canadian version which do not show the same content - FX, Food, OWN for example and I cannot use the Canadian sites to get EPG data).

Thanks

Is the support helpful?
support us

There is a new site added for the USA
http://webgrabplus.com/sites/default/files/download/ini/info/zip/USA_tv....
Alternative for directv but also for many other providers. Less detailed​ though

Hello

 

I ran the new site ini and have some observations....

 

I ran a test yesterday with 15 channels and indicated that it should collect 1 day of data (timespan of 0).  It only collected one show (30 minites).

I ran it again today using timespan of 5 and I got a "Cookie Expired for tv.com" error it still ran but I was also getting "The remote server returned an error: (429) Unknown." error.  It would retry 5 times.  I got only 4 x 30 minutes (2 hours) of programming.

 

Here is the log...
