Download channel info only?

Postby whurlston » Thu Sep 13, 2007 9:33 pm

Is there a way to download just the lineup/channel info without any listings using a soap client? Currently I'm using from "now" to "now" but it returns the programs that are currently showing.

No, no way to do it. without using some API's we're not ready to release (and weren't available at Z2L either).

For tv_grab_na_dd, I think I do (now, now+60) or something like that for ---conifgure, --list-channels, --list-lineups, etc. The few programs that are downloaded really don't hurt anything.

Ok, thanks. The programs don't bother me, I can ignore them easy enough. I just wanted to make sure I was using the lowest bandwith possible.
