Free XMLTV EPG scraper
In previous threads alternatives to the zap2it TV guide have been mentioned.
One very usable and easy to setup alternative is available at:
I thought I would start a separate thread for this free XMLTV EPG scraper, as I believe a few other GBPVR users have tried this little utility. Some additional work is required to get it to work better with GBPVR.
First a few good points -
- It is free
- Does not required MCE or VISTA
- Supports Canadian users - including OTA & ExpressVu & Starchoice
Now a problem I am having
I can download program listings through the utility, and set the EPG source in config.
But in the GBPVR TV guide I can see all the channels - but the message (no show details) are displayed for every time slot. But I do see program/TV show details in the generated XML file.
After talking with drlava, it may be that gbpvr dosen't read in more than one <display-name> tag per channel. Or where GBPVR gets the channel number from - the ID, or the first <display-name> tag.
So there are a few questions that I am sure others here will be interested in helping out with.
