As mentioned, there were some program changes involved, so it needs a pre-public new version of the program. If you want I will send you the whole lot.
In that case , send me an Email.

Hi Alart,

sorry I was so busy preparing the new version (that includes support for tvguide.com and cable-onda) that I missed your post.
This new version will be online today.

Sorry but there is a wrong setting in the configfile, a forgotten leftover from an experiment !
<retry show-delay=15>4</retry> should be <retry>4</retry>

(remove the show-delay, it pauses for 15 seconds between the grab of any show!!)

The error is corrected in the mean time.

again sorry .... wg++maker .. Jan

[12-April-2012] WebGrab+Plus Version update V1.1.0
This version adds an optional postprocessor that will add IMDb data (from IMDb.com) automatically to the xmltv output file. It does that in 4 steps:
1. Select shows from the xmltv input as candidate for postprocessing based on configurable selection settings
2. Tries to match the selected shows with IMDb entries, based on configurable matching settings.
3. Collect IMDb data for matched shows (Data collected : title, starrating, plot, description, review, viewer comments)
4. Merge of the collected IMDb data with the source xmltv data based on configurable allocation and presentation settings.

It also maintains a local mdb datafile that enables to re-use the data without timeconsuming reconnection with IMDb.com for the same show.

Many thanks to Jacon Berggren and Karsten Kugel for the apha testing and all the usefull suggestions for improvements.

Apart from this new postprocessor, the functionality of the EPG is improved with the option to grab from a subdetail html page. This can be used if certain epg data is on a available on a different html page than the two already available (index - and detail page)

[12 April 2012] Site.Ini.Pack10.0
Now containing siteini files for more than 100 Tvguide sites.
New siteini files for : Austria, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Poland, Sweden, UK and Spain (Basque) and updates for 22 siteini's.
Many thanks again to Willy de Wilde for contributing a lot of the new sites and updates.

Thanks

Hi Bobby,

I didn't know about the Schedules Direct organisation. I will be happy to make a siteini for the schedules available through it.
Tell me what I should do? Do you have to be a member to be listed in the 'Approved Applications' list?

I had a look at the tvguide site zap2it, which I understand is the source of the schedules for Schedules Direct. Making a WG++ siteini for it shouldn't be difficult.

UPDATED:

I do not think you need to be a member to be on the approved software list. You do have to be a member to access the schedules. 25$ a year, or 6$ for three months. I think that WebGrab+ may fall within their requirements for approved software (non commercial). I'm not sure what info you would need for the siteini. I'm not too savvy on this guide data stuff (just beginning to learn). What would you need from me to put together a siteini for it? Should I contact you outside of these forums? Thanks for responding.

Bobby

Hi Bobby,

I have mailed (last Sunday) a request to Schedules Direct for instructions how to proceed when I want to apply for approval of WG++. Sofar no answer. Patience it is.

I also looked in more detail into a siteini for zap2it. In fact its nearly ready, but unusable because the site blocks my IP address. As I understand it , with an approval of SD , this blocking is lifted by means of a special addition to the url.

So again, patience. Could you push them a little?

will be back .. WG++Maker .. Jan

Hi Jan,
Yes, Patience it is. Also have my fingers crossed for good luck. Thanks for getting the ball rolling. Hopefully there will eventually be good news.

Hi Jan,
I have set up WG+ using "tvguide.com.National-Eastern" and it works well. The ini file does not list all the channels here locally though. And so I have questions...

I would like to manually add my local stations. How/where can I get the site_id# for my local OTA stations?

Also, I have set up an account with TVguide.com. When I log in it presents me with only the stations I am interested in. Is there a way WG+ can log into my TVguide account and pull down these stations alone?

Thanks,

Bobby

P.S... Have you heard yet from Schedules Direct?

New Version of WebGrab+Plus V1.1.1

This version adds a few major features:
1. Another postprocessor REX (Reallocate and Edit Xmltv) that can
- Move the content of xmltv elements to other xmltv elements
- Merge the content of several xmltv elements
- Add comments/prefi/postfix text
- Remove or create xmltv elements
E.g. If the PVR software do not recognize some of the xmltv elements grabbed (like actors) it can add
these to the description and remove the now useless actor xmltv element.
2. Improved MDB postprocessor (automatically adds IMDB data to your xmltv file)
3. Added support for LINUX (in combination with MONO) and tested in W8
4. A command line parameter that specifies and overrules the default homefolder-path of the program for user that prefer another location of it.
5. Support for sites that use the POST HttpWebRequest method, further extending the range of websites.
6. The installation packages contain ini files for 126 TvGuide websites in about 60 countries worldwide!!

... and , on top of that, many small improvements and bugs fixed as usual.
