Thanks Blackbear199, deleting all disallow lines did the job. On my end I had to set permission to "read-only" since It was rewriting robots files every time I ran wg.

It works for me too.

Just put this file in webgrab+plus/robots folder, and unzip first.

Thank you Blackbear199, for solving all the problems. Also for other channel grabbers.

check ur robot.txt file and see if it added those line that I mentioned in the other thread.
if they are there delete them and change the permission on the file to read only like the other user said as his was getting overwritten.

I made the Change in my ini File. However now when Processing any channel that a Movie is playing on only shows up in guide as "Movie" but not the name of the actual movie playing? Do you have any other idea to what needs changed for that to work correctly showing movie name?

Anyone getting the 'no shows in indexpage' error after doing the above updates...

I have found that after doing the updates to the ini file as above it turns out that tvtv have also changed a lot of the channel numbers (XSTATIONIDX) so your channel lists and therefore your config file may now be out of date. Download the new channel list and update your config and thigs should work again

don't forget to grab the new channels.xml since alot of ID has changed. and modify these in tvtv.us.ini script.

start=|urldate|T00:00Z&end=|urldate|T23:59Z&station=XSTATIONIDX}

to

start=|urldate|T00:00:00.000Z&end=|urldate|T23:59:00.000Z&startchan=XSTATIONIDX&endchan=XSTATIONIDX}

how can i grab for other XLINEUPIDX I have channels that are not on 36212D

i try with the F12 but the station ID are the old one...

i think theres' some problem in your grab
this is is the F12 code:
{"number":"206","channelNumber":206,"subChannelNumber":0,"stationID":594,"name":"ESPN".....},
{"number":"207","channelNumber":207,"subChannelNumber":0,"stationID":1527,"name":"ESPN News".....},
{"number":"208","channelNumber":208,"subChannelNumber":0,"stationID":3331,"name":"ESPN U",.....}
{"number":"209","channelNumber":209,"subChannelNumber":0,"stationID":650,"name":"ESPN2"....}

this is your grab... so the change is that now are not the stationID but the number channel..
but i think that somenthing is wrong
ESPN should be 206 and you have 204... e so fot the others

site="tvtv.us" xmltv_id="ESPN" site_id="36212D/204"
site="tvtv.us" xmltv_id="ESPN News" site_id="36212D/206"
site="tvtv.us" xmltv_id="ESPN U" site_id="36212D/207"
site="tvtv.us" xmltv_id="ESPN2" site_id="36212D/208

has anyone bother to look at anything besides me,everyone is doing it wrong.if you looked at the latest changes to the url_index you would see they now use startchan= and endchan= and not station id.so looking at this line..

update="i" site="tvtv.us" site_id="2381D/16875" xmltv_id="NFL SUNDAY TICKET 717">NFL SUNDAY TICKET 717

and the actual data..

"number":"717","channelNumber":717,"subChannelNumber":0,"stationID":16875,"name":"DirecTV Sports 717","callsign":"NFLST14",

you should be using the "channelNumber": value..

update="i" site="tvtv.us" site_id="2381D/717" xmltv_id="NFL SUNDAY TICKET 717">NFL SUNDAY TICKET 717

I need to correct myself,you need to use the "number":"xxx" value as some channels have a sub channel number other than zero,example..

,{"number":"686-1","channelNumber":686,"subChannelNumber":1,"stationID":31547,"name":"Fox Sports Arizona Plus","callsign":"FSAZ+",

yes,look under the documentation tab at the top of the forums.
you will need to edit the channel.xml creation section at the bottom of the ini and change the index_site_id.scrub..

index_site_id.scrub {multi|{"number":"||",|",}

I have to study the documentation and understand ... if in the meantime someone could attach the ini file and the webgrab.config to generate the channels I would be grateful

this new channels.xml works amazingly. the only thing is that all channels has a 2 hours out of sync since it's grabbing it at +0000 instead of +0200. Is there a way to fix this easely enough instead of editing it with notepad+++ ?

should be because i take it form italy, i think you can change the site.ini...
site {url=tvtv.us|timezone=UTC-02:00|
ore maybe change the timezone..

the times are in UTC,here's a perfect example to show this..

showName: "CBS 2 News at 11:00 p.m."
listDateTime: "2019-09-09 03:00:00"

as you can see the time says its starts at 3am but title says 11pm.
this is channel cbs new York with is UTC-0400.
if you subtract 4 hrs from the shown start time you get 11pm.
this means the start time is in UTC time.

if it doesn't appear correctly when you view the epg data in your player its nor because the source data is wrong,you have other problems.

in my case, the issue is the channel creation script is cutting off the -XX.

see the attachment to see what is wrong.

I have also attached a working ini file that will correctly generate the channel lineup.

it is advised to disable this channel / site from your channel list

And when I run channel creation mode, i get zero channels in xml.

works fine for me. You need to remove all the disallows on tvtv.us.robots file and mark the file read only, and then populate the config file with the channels you want to pull.
