EpgEdit, an EPGViewer/Editor
… and another approach of epg categories ..

To view (and edit) your EPG on the PC before you send it to your TV or Mediacentre. But it can do a lot more: like adding 'viewer categories'! Click on this link to find out all about it.
It is free to use for registered users and also available as C# source in the form of a Visual Studio Project for users who want to improve/extend it.
The executable http://www.webgrabplus.com/sites/default/files/downloads/Misc/EPGEdit1.4.zip is provided 'As Is', meaning that we will not do much support for it. Users of it can communicate about it on http://www.webgrabplus.com/forums/epgviewereditor

The first thing to realize is that there are two time-zones involved in the times in your final EPG, each with its own DST rules; the time-zone for which the times of the guide is provided (the 'source' time-zone) and the time-zone of the user (the 'target' time-zone). In the majority of cases these two are equal, but that doesn't change the fact that there are two to consider.

In principle the guide times must be corrected for UTC offset and DST changes for both these two time-zones:  The first correction, the one for the 'source' time-zone, is done by WG++ and the second, for the 'target' (should be done) by the some piece of software at the viewers side, probably the PVR xmltv importer.

Before upgrade 53   http://www.webgrabplus.com/sites/default/files/download/sw/V1.1.1/upgrade/patchexe_53.zip , WG++ was unable to identify the 'source' time-zone correctly, the only info available about it was the time-zone value in the siteini. But that value was limited to just an UTC offset, not the...

Upgrade release

V1.1.1
/ 53


This Upgrade introduces an integrated TimeZones database which is derived from the public domain tzdata distributed by http://www.iana.org/time-zones. For the processing of that database it uses a customized version of the public domain ZoneInfo Api developed by  Mark Rodrigues as published @  http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/25001/ZoneInfo-tz-Database-Olson-Database-NET-API. With this added functionality it is now possible to calculate the proper daylight saving time cutoverdates for guidedata that is supplied in for timezones that have a different dst cutoverdate than that of the WG++ user.
 

Another important added feature is that by default the program uploads a small status report to this website at the end of each run. This status report contains data like program version used, siteini names and versions, the channels for which epg was requested and errors that occured during the run. With this data, a statistical database is created on the server side that gives insight in the problems of...
