Can't download EPG with multiple clients

Mediaportal does not download anymore (it did previously)
mc2xml gives me a TCP error
Xmltv gives me error 500

I tried removing and readding my lineup on the SD website. No change.

I wonder if the problem maybe started because I had set my clock ahead to August 15th while trying to get Windows 10 to install.

500 error means some sort of server error. If you capture the raw data with "--dd-data dd.xml" sometimes a text error is in the dd.xml file.

You can always test SD-DD at http://schedulesdirect.org/getdata with a web browser, that performs the same download your app is supposed to do.

I've ready about lots of people having trouble with MC2XML lately (and not just those using it to steal Microsoft's data.) I think there's a new version.

I'm trying the newest version of mc2xml.

Here's the error xml2tv gives me when I try to configure it:
Service description 'http://dd.schedulesdirect.org/tech/tmsdatadirect/schedulesdirect/tvDataDelivery.wsdl' can't be loaded: 500 Can't connect to dd.schedulesdirect.org:80

The getdata test works for me. Maybe I'm blocked? If I login, Chrome gives me a ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT error if I try to view http://dd.schedulesdirect.org/

So, I think my IP is blocked, as Chrome on my phone gives me a connection refused error for the dd page. If I switch to a 4G connection, it redirects.

Odd, since MediaPortal is only set up to download the EPG every 24hrs. And I had apparently already been blocked when I started trying to setup mc2xml\xml2tv to use ArgusTV as my recording backend -- because all I've seen from those 2 programs are the errors I mentioned previously (and MP had already stopped syncing when I started testing).

I have access again. Must've been blocked. Probably triggered a bunch of MediaPortal EPG requests yesterday when I fiddled around with the system date.

The way it's currently configured you have to work really hard to get blocked. If you log in to the SD web page it should unblock you.
