Can someone PLEASE help me to grab EPG from these source?

Dear WebGrab community,

I've been using IPTV actively for 2 years and all providers I used don't have EPG fully covered, not a single of them.

After 2 years I collected my favorite channels, around 60 of them, not too much at all really considering thousands of IPTV channels worldwide, but I miss EPG channels again.

I've heard of WebGrab long time ago but I have no idea how to grab the EPG from any website. How and where to find .ini file?

To keep it short, these are websites that contain EPG I need.

This one contains most of channels I need EPG for: https://epg.sbb.rs
This one is 99% similar to above one, it's 2nd best and biggest legal IPTV provider in Serbia and it has 5 channels I miss on link above: https://mts.rs/oec/epg
This link contains only those 5 channels I miss: https://www.tvarenasport.com/tv-program
Again, same 5 Arena Sport channels but with Croatian EPG which is completely different so I need it: https://www.tvarenasport.hr/tv-program
Portugal Sport channels that NONE of IPTV providers have EPG for it: https://www.sporttv.pt/guia

But, there is also one website that's made for tracking EPG on their Website and their Android app which contain a lot of worldwide channels.

It's https://tvprofil.com and it contains ALL channels I need EPG for. I then don't need those above at all, only https://tvprofil.com

Now, how do I grab EPG from https://tvprofil.com ? What's the procedure of grabing EPG out of their every channel or channel separately?

http://webgrabplus.com/epg-channels contains very old SBB list of channels, it has like 300 channels so .ini files on WebGrab are too old for both SBB and MTS.

Thanks for help in advance.

I checked it. Seems like Serbia --> epg.sbb.rs.EK.channels has all channels which is nice to see. However Croatia --> m.tvprofil.net.channels.xml miss a lot of channels.

Then I put these channels into WebGrab++config.xml as the test of grabbing EPG from epg.sbb.rs.EK.channels
SK 1 HD (SR)
SK 2 HD (SR)
SK 3 HD (SR)
SK 4 HD (SR)
SK 5 HD (SR)
SK 6 HD (SR)
SK 7 HD (SR)
SK 8 HD (SR)
SK 9 HD (SR)
SK 10 HD (SR)

When I hit "Run" all channels were skipped --> Encrypted SiteIni.

What do I do now? How to grab EPG? There is no a single tutorial on Earth how to grab EPG with WebGrab. I need it for like only 60 channels no more no less.

As I understood the procedure is this:
-Open wanted .xml of channels and copy-paste wanted channels to WebGrab++.config.xml and replace it with dummy channel that's put there to show person where exactly to put channels.

And I am getting skipped --> Encrypted SiteIni for epg.sbb.rs.EK.channels. Will check other Countries/Providers.

Thanks in advance.

Arena Sport 5 also gave error, I managed only to copy what happened to those 4 during grabbing.

Really confused here, never managed to grab a single channel.

Any ini with a capital "E" means its encrypted and need to be a donor to use. As far as non-encrypted ini's some work and some are outdated. I use the TVGuide.ini for example (for US) and that surprisingly still works even though it was last edited 3 or 4 years ago. Sometimes checking ini's are a trial and error.
