Sky EPG data stopped working.

Hi Guys,

Anyone else having issues grabbing EPG data from SKY and TV.SKY?

Working fine for months, have downloaded the latest INI file.

Getting this on all channels:

I noticed this yesterday but then the main sky EPG website seem to be slow for me too so I assumed it was a fault but its happening again today

Here is an example of the error's shown when trying to pull the xml data

All other channels using a different source like Radiotimes.com work fine and populate with no errors, its only the uk.sky.com and tv.sky,com and I'm using version 2.1.5 and updated ini file for all channels (updated today)

I hope so but its not a program issue, so I don't know what the admini can do or suggest :)

I changed all my tv.sky.com to Radiotimes but some channels are only on the tv.sky.com ini file so I couldn't change them all

there is no 'fix' for this.

read post #21 here.

http://www.webgrabplus.com/content/updated-uk-skycomchannels

its either a site problem(which they will fix) or they did it on purpose.

all you can do is..

wait or set your timout very high.how high?

the timeout is set in seconds.goto the sky epg page and click on a program to view its details.count how many seconds it takes to show.add 10 seconds to this number i would.

will this make grabbing slow?

you bet it will,and it has nothing to do with the timeout setting.it how fast the site responds with the data.

setting the timeout high will just get rid of the retry messages,it wont make the actual grabbing any faster.

is there anything else that can be done?

No.

Its working for me, I reduced the days to 1 and set the timeout to 40 seconds but its pulling all the channels data for me and I only use it on channels I can't get off the radiotimes ini
