Because most epg data is on the indexpage it was decided not to link to the detail page. As a resukt, the grabbing is very fast but unfortunately it misses the IMDb starrating as a consequence.

    I advice to use the latest version of the program V1.1.0. That allows to use a MDB postprocessor that automatically grabs IMDb data and inserts it in the xmltv output file. Apart from IMDb starrating it can add 'original title' 'plot' 'IMDBdescription' 'review' and 'viewer -comment'. All optional and configurable.

    As example a possible listing of 'The perfect man' which I just grabbed with V1.1.0 , postprocessor enabled. As you can see it adds the IMDb starrating, but you can also just replace the tv.nu starrating with the IMDb starrating.

    Hi Jan and thanks for your answer.

    Trying the postprocessed file I cannot load it in UltraXMLTV enhancer. It says it cannot find any programs. The original file works fine and I cannot see any obvious differences.

    Can you see any reason why one file works but not the other?

    Maybe UltraXMLTV doesn't understand the xmltv element <review> which is not so commonly used.
    To find out, disable in mdbconfig.xml the lines that start with <review

    If that works you can add the content of the review elements to the description if you want that.
    I can help to set that up

    Hi again Jan,

    I was able to get UltraXMLTV to accept the file (somthing about the title). However, doing this I started to think if I can configure WG++ to do what I am using UltraXMLTV for. Basically I am moving tags not supported by NPVR into the description tag.

    In this example I have moved the tags <director>, <actor> and <date> into the description tag with some tabs and extra characters. But I am also moving Epnum into the <subtitle> tag for an easy overview of what episode it is.

    Original file with IMDB enhancement:
    Code:

    The shortest answer is yes.

    1 You can do all of it by changing the siteini. The problem is that that is not very user friendly (you need to master all the features of the siteini script language)

    2. You can do some of it with the allocation/presentation setting in mdb.config.xml (read the description of the options in that section of mdb.config.xml)

    3. I intend to add another postprocessor that can re-allocate/modify presentation in one of the next versions (just as 2. but for all elements and content) . But this doesn't help you now.

    Because I assume you do not intend to dive into the siteini language (?) I offer to make a custom version which does what you want.
    Do you wish to continue using the MDB postprocessor for the IMDb starrating? (That is important to know because in that case I need to keep the credits in the original xmltv elements as well as on the moved location description because they are needed for selection and matching. )

    It might be easier to continue this by email. My mail address is on the cover of the documentation

    new version

    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 does 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.

    Download links:
    For LINUX:

    discovery

    Hi Reddwarf,

    I made a discovery.com.ini that includes all the available discovery channels.
    Attached the ini and the channellist file.

    The times are in UTC, because I can't figure out the timezone of the listing. If utc is not correct you can change the timezone=UTC+00:00 in the ini file.

    Seems to be working great!
    A question, I have two xmltv files from DVBGuide that contains much of the same channels but with different id's since they originate from dvb-c and dvb-t, is it possible to merge them with the downloaded file from Discovery so that I have only one epg for each channel?

    Hi Reddwarf,

    in the documentation folder of the installation package is a guide: Merging-xmltv-files.txt
    how to merge existing xmltv files with the WG++ output file.

    I hope that's what you are looking for

    If not, be a bit more specific .... Jan
