Directv.ini SecureChannelFailure

Hello to 1 and all first off I'd like to thank you for providing such an awesome space for noobs/pros alike to communicate sharing methods & ideas learning as much as humanly possible along the way. This is my first post but I've been browsing around for about a week now trying my best to get a scope of everything.

I have messed around with tv.com.ini quite a bit and got a guide.xml after many tries but it wasn't complete nor was it as conclusive as I'd like so I decided to try directv.ini to no avail.

I've tried almost everything I've seen so far after following all instructions in directv.com_instructions.txt and yet no matter what I change or do I get this error:
"Error: SecureChannelFailure (The authentication or decryption has failed.)"

I am using linux webgrabplus 10/07/2019 - V2.1.10 (beta), chromium browser with EditthisCookie extension (option set to export cookie format {Netscape HTTP Cookie file}) which I use for directv.com.cookies.txt, using the latest directv.ini from updated SiteInipack.

My guess is it has to do with the cookies as I've read in the forum that I have to use the latest webgrabplus beta to get around ssl or encrypted sites or something of that nature which I am so I'm clueless rn after trying all I have been exposed to.

If anyone is kind and patient enough to help me with this it'd be gratefully appreciated!

to update mono,see here..
https://www.mono-project.com/download/stable/#download-lin

for step 2 instead of running..
sudo apt install mono-devel
run
sudo apt install mono-complete

its the easiest way unless you know exactly what your doing to install individual libraries,ect

Thanks for the reply it worked just like you said no more errors when running the program with directv.com.ini, I do have to say though mono-complete is quite a huge package +400mb but well worth it.

I have however encountered an issue with the guide.xml I successfully managed to get though, the programs all show UTC time rather than my timezone meaning the Epg displays data for previously shown shows/movies, I don't know if it has to do with any of the tweaks I made to it based on a previous directv thread I found on the forums or not so I decided to ask.

Is there any way I can edit the already generated guide.xml to show my timezone rather than UTC or an edit for my directv.com.ini & WebGrab++.config.xml; also the Epg data for all shows/movies is displayed like this "Watch [show data] Online" how can I edit the directv.com.ini to remove the "Watch" and "Online" from the EPG data if possible?

As always your continued help, patience and dedication to helping/teaching those less knowledgeable in this field is most gratefully appreciated below are my directv.com.ini, a sample Webgrab++.config.xml and a sample guide.xml if needed.

Thank You!

this shouldn't be a problem as almost all epg viewing software will convert the time to your local time.
but if you insist they are in your local time there is a program called wg2mp,this was made for media portal users as its doesn't recognize the time offset in the xml data.it will convert everything to the users local time(it detects the timezone your pc uses).its available here..

http://www.webgrabplus.com/download/utility/wg2mp

also never edit the timezone= setting in the ini as this will lead to more trouble,this is set to the timezone the data that's grabbed.in directv case its in UTC so that's why it must be set to that.

regarding the messed up data.
you should ask someone to post a updated ini,here's what I get(see screenshot).
