New User, XMLTV GUI cannot grab

Postby lorrrr » Sun Sep 18, 2016 6:39 am

Just trying out Schedules direct. I am in the UK and m using the latest versons of XMLTV and XMLTV GUI.

Problem is when I try to view stations none are displayed and I get the following errors about not being able to authenticate.

The setting screen for Schedules direct has no information only 2 data entry boxes. In the top one I have put my username in the bottom one I put my password.
I have also tried putting my email address in the top one and password in the 2nd.

This is the log report:
20:25:56 - Error calling OnShowShowSettings function of grabber NA - Schedules Direct: ...rogram Files (x86)\XMLTV GUI\scripts/na_sd/na_sd.lua:287: attempt to index local `zf' (a nil value)

20:26:35 - Schedules Direct Authentication error, check your password in the grabber settings

Can any one please help me set this up.

Whoa...
http://webservices.schedulesdirect.tmsdatadirect.com


That's a very old URL for the SD service... to the point of not working on the traditional SD-DD service, much less the SD-JSON service you need for the UK. You may want to poke the XMLTV-GUI folks.. they need to update their program.

Try using the XMLTV SF project... http://files.xmltv.org via the command line. It's pretty easy to do. There are two SD-JSON grabbers that support the UK... tv_grab_sd_json and tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite.

Yes the XMLTV you recommend is the one I am using. The XMLTV GUI is just a graphic front end for XMLTV without using the command line.
Will look into how to use the command line.

There is an "approved application" called XMLTV-GUI. It does have a command line piece.

That is *not* the same as the normal XMLTV SF project \.

XMLTV-GUI has not been updated since 2011.

Thanks for the response
Switched to mc2xml instead. Works perfectly. Except for problems restricting the number of channel data downloaded.
