WebGrab+Plus is a multi-site incremental xmltv epg grabber. It collects tv-program guide data from selected tvguide sites for your favourite channels.

Many users wanted to contribute to the Siteini.pack. Currently this was done through our forum and mail. Keeping the siteini.pack up-to-date this way, is a huge task.

The link to the repo is:
