Update: So PlutoTV ini is working, however, it might need a little adjustment. Looks like its grabbing from 12am UTC to about 1pm UTC at the moment. I can run it every hour and it seems to be the set grab right up to that same time. I'll see what happens after the next few hours, but definitely needs some adjusting.

I'm also having the same problem, and if I could get an unencrypted version of the file I would attempt to fix it myself.

no offence but if u think a unencrypted version will help you fix it why not start from nothing and write your own version?
all the knowledge is here for free(manual on downloads page).

just saying...

Hey Mat8861, ya its running, thats why i posted a reply to explain the changed behavior.  Its not updating past 12:30 pm (UTC).   Heres what it looks like when i run it, no new shows are being added and i hadn't run it in about 2 or 3 hours. 
 
I'm attaching a grab i just did, which would be about 8pm (UTC), but you can see that around 12:30pm (UTC) is the last show added
 
I'm in the US so no VPN needed by the way.

Hey Mat8861, once again sorry for mixing the posts. 
 
I did update the Plutotv ini, but as i mentioned in the other post it has some odd behaviors.  On all channels, it grabs the first show starting at about 1:30am (UTC) the stops grabbing about 13:00 (UTC) skips about 10 hours then starts grabbing at 22:00 (UTC) then stops grabbing at 13:00 UTC.  It does this for the 3rd day as well.
Here's a snippet of the where there is a about 10 hour break between the programs
I thought it was just me, however, i opened up the Pluto created xml you uploaded to show me its working and your xml is doing the same thing. I'm uploading your xml here since i crossed posts.

Not a problem Mat

Just because i want to get a grip of how this works, i'd love to know what solution you find.

I found a website that seems pretty straight forward and not complicated like Pluto, bein, or Timeline, so hoping to get some time to try it out

Thanks again for all the help

Uploaded now.The solution is eliminate weird charachters that have influence in showsplit, aka | which is used by the wg++ to separate shows, so if there is a character that interfere with split ...it mess up everything !!
Very rare to see though, mainly on American siteini, more in details on sport channels to separate team matches.

That did it my friend! And although i don't know what you do to fix the solution you mentioned, i actually understood what you were talking about. LOL
 
Thanks again for your help. Hoping to try my first site today or tomorrow. It's this site:https://sportsmax.tv/index.php/pr-schedule
 
It looks a bit easier than others when looking at the site with developer tools

Yup, that did it. Lowered the days to 3 (2 in WG config) and grabbing correctly. Thanks!

Ok, getting weird behavior.  I reduced it to 2 days (from 3) and still get this behavior.  Show Title/Description is very off from the actual channel at various spots of the XMLTV. I'm using v.5 (from yesterday 08/19)
Heres an example of the end of "American Gladiators" channel listings and beginning of "Baywatch" channel listings
(I'm also uploading the Log in case that helps)
