I am upgrading to V2 and trying to time correct one of the files but it is not working with the below error.

Utilty to correct offset start and stop times in xmltv files
Jan van Straaten, Januari 2011

Channel mena_Global not found in xmltv file
channel mena_Global can not be corrected
check channel name!
press any key to continue

I'm using xmltv_time_correct on V1.56.26.0 with no issues.

Does xmltv_time_correct no longer work on V2?

Should I be using the offset time?

========================  chans2correct.xml

  This file specifies the channels to be 'time' corrected by xmltv_time_correct.exe
  Syntax of this file:
  <channel time_error="+1">channel-name</channel>
  -  time_error : the number of (decimal)hours the channel is 'off',
   (so, if you want all shows of a channel 1 hour later in the output xmltv file, specify time_error="-2",
   for 1:30 minutes earlier, specify time_error="1.5")
  - channel-name, the xmltv_id as in webgrab++.config.xml of the channel you want to correct

<channel time_error="-2">mena_Global</channel>
<channel time_error="-2">mena_News_ar (BeIN)</channel>

Blackbear199, Thank you.

I'll give that a go.

Thought I might have been missing something obvious.
