not being a donator you have a limit:

thank you, that work, I will go back to the manual but now I think I need to donate then put my subdomain.mydomain.com in my panel, but first I have more errors about cookies, I kind of vegly remember you have to go to a webpage and grab cookie info. Do you have to do this for each stream? Any shortcuts easy way.

Any ideas? I just purchased my license because at least I think I am on the right path. Now I need to make it work for my IPTV, do you have those instructions or know where to get them? Thank you, you have helped me get this far, thank you.

make sure mono is version 5 or greater.
Update license (see documentation)
use this sample https://github.com/SilentButeo2/webgrabplus-siteinipack/blob/master/site...
For tvtv.us also follow instruction (robots file needs to be modified and read only) see attached

What goes here, it looks like it is used to decrypt a sitecyfrowypolsat.pl.ek ?? There is a key there but from the sample one you linked me.

that is a sample of config, of course you need to add correct license data, keys and channels you need. Works fine as timeout and other settings for most of siteini's.

You need to install Apache.
https://ubuntu.com/tutorials/install-and-configure-apache#1-overview

Then you need to create a user account.
As Root
adduser USERNAME (your own username you want)
Enter New UNIX Password
Re-Enter New Unix Password
and the rest of the prompts you can leave blank.

usermod -aG sudo USERNAME
Make sure you can login with username
Add folder public_html
mkdir public_html

Set your Webgrab++.config.xml output to /home/USERNAME/public_html/guide.xml
(After fist scan you may need to edit permissions of guide.xml to be readable by others)

Run command:
sudo a2enmod userdir

Then go to your browser and type (Your IP) http:111.222.333/~USERNAME

You should see your guide.xml there now. For your panel use http:111.222.333/~USERNAME/guide.xml

When I go to my panel, plug in http://myip/~username/guide.xml this is what I get below.

"DirecTV Sports 122
http://www.tvtv.us

DirecTV Sports 123
http://www.tvtv.us

"

When I go to my panel, plug in http://myip/~username/guide.xml, I am unable to pull channels etc. should I be using a port number?

Yes, this is the file. I may have tried to make it read only. What should the folder be and what should the file be in regards to permissions. I am fairly new user when it comes to Linux but I can get around.

I have attached a new picture of the robots file in /root/.wg++/robots/tvtv.us.robots . The permissions for the file is 0644 .

thank you for the help :)

run webgrab once(i assume u have already did).
then edit the tvtv robot txt file as mat said above.
remove write permission for even the owner...this is allowing it to be overwritten.

Disallow: /

It's currently pulling down the channels, new shows added etc...

Thank you :) .... I should not jinx myself but I think I finally was able to do things correct. When you said to add the channels I went through the documentation and did so.

Yes, it is working

Question, I am missing some west channels, can I add more than one list, if so how would I do that?

Thank you :)

if you run update channel list, you can get a fresh/new list of channels. This site ini requires 2 run, one t ot get region provider, then with the line produced add to config to get the new channel list. It's all described in siteini, more info also here: http://www.webgrabplus.com/documentation/configuration/sitechannelsxml

When I ran it, the config.xml had the f switch for the update section. I am still missing west coast stuff for the most part. Is there a way to fill the gaps or would I have to try another list?

ok, I think it's working now so I edited this post as to not spam to much.

I do one of 2 things.
1. I keep 2 WebGrab++.config.xml files and just rename as I need to. I keep my main one but also keep a "scanner" one and rename it when not in use to config.SCANNER.xml and switch back and forth.
2. if you are using tvtv.us just go to their site and you can change the channel numbers and identifier yourself in the tvt.us.channels.xml and config file. So if you have NY for instance 8490D or whatever, just choose an LA service, change the code from the browser address bar and channel number to your files.

ok, I have attached a picture. Where do I get the number to change in the xml file. So basically the channels I selected and added to the XML file are showing the wrong shows.

I went to tvtv.us to hopefully find the correct channels and then change them in the xml file to represent the correct channels and data.
