What a mess

Hello Mr. van Straaten,

So after 8 hours of struggling I realize: you just ruined my friday.
The documentation has many, many inconsistencies. I really do not understand what you are saying on http://webgrabplus.com/documentation/configuration/sitechannelsxml.

I want my donation back.

Best regards, Mike

this was the original way todo it before encrytped ini's,actually the page explains both ways.
now...for encrypted ini's
in your webgrab config.xml just set
<update>c</update>
run,webgrab and the new channel list will be created in your webgrab config.xml directory.
this is for 99% of ini's there are a few that required multiple steps,for these there is usually a [site_ini_name]_info.txt file that explains what to do.its usually in the same country folder as the ini.

change the c back to f or i or whatever update mode you were using.

Thank you for your message, but I still don't undesrrtand exactly what you mean.

I made a webbpage (https://filiaalwolk.nl/webgrabplus.html) explaining the process that I followed based on the documentation of your website. Maybe you see right away which step is false.

My questions are:
- Should channels been added to the WebGrab++.config.xml?
- When I use channels from Ziggo, should the ziggo.nl.ini been added to the to folder .wg++?
- Is the WebGrab++.config.xml correct? Is the update tag to c correct?
- Is the content of guide.xml correct? Or should it contain all the EPG-data too?
- Is the error loadcookie failed! ... cannot update this channel causing problems?
- Why is TVheadend looking for a file in /var/packages/tvheadend/target/.wg++/guide.xml: No such file or directory?

1. yes add the channel you want
2. you only need channels line in config and siteini's in siteini.pack or siteini.user
3. here there is a sample https://github.com/SilentButeo2/webgrabplus-siteinipack/blob/master/site... the update "c" produce a channel list, the f(force or i (incremental) create epg.
4 cookie failed depends on which siteini...if it gives that error it means you need to create the txt file in wg++ folder, with that name and add data from the website the siteini refer to, which can be taken with export cookie plugin for chrome by Genuinous @genuinous or other similar export cookie plugin, with latest wg++ (3.1 and above) the need of a cookie is very rare.
5.tvheadend follow that path but if you installed wg in another directory, just correct it.

If you post your config (HIDE LICENSE DATA PLEASE !!) we can check if it is all ok.

First of ALL a DONATION is not payment for service, if you DONATE then you are giving something from yourself without expecting anything in return. After that comes the help in forum
