Re: Epg setting SD token NextPvr 4.2.4

I"m not that familiar with the JSON service, but that URL doesn't work for me. I thought you were using MC2XML? You probably need to check with the author of whatever tool you're using to query the JSON service.

Re: Epg setting SD token NextPvr 4.2.4

I would focus on the mc2xml command line.. if that doesn't work nothing will, and contact he/she/them (they're anonymous) for support.

You can also use am XMLTV project or other tools to generate xmltv formatted files.

As I mentioned, mc2xml expires, you need a new version from time to time.

Re: Epg setting SD token NextPvr 4.2.4

what happens if you run mc2xml from the command line? Do you have a current version of mc2xml? I seem to remember they expire.

Re: OTA listings from other timezones

Well, this should make it easy... All Schedules Direct data is in UTC. There are no timezones. There is no DST. :) It's up to the end app to convert to the local timezone (even better if the app uses UTC directly and just converts on display.. that makes DST guides look so cool!) As far as FTA chann...

Re: New XMLTV.exe failed

Best place to report that is on the XMLTV github https://github.com/XMLTV/xmltv/issues

XMLTV.EXE 1.0.0 was a big jump because I couldn't generate a new XMLTV.EXE for quite a while (old laptop died).

Re: [20191022] 502 Bad Gateway

BTW.. don't retry everything... things like bad passwords or expired accounts.. there's no point, all it does it add load to the server. And please do exponential backoffs.. you wouldn't believe how many scripts out there just loop on failure!

Re: Need JSON Download Help

like most XMLTV tools, it's pretty easy

xmltv.exe tv_grab_zz_sdjson --configure
xmltv.exe tv_grab_zz_sdjson --days 1 --output tv.xml

There could be extra steps, but just follow the prompts.

I also don't recommend using a directory with spaces in in. (like Program Files)

Re: Clearing extra "Lineups" through linux & NOT windows..

looked at the EPG123 download page and I don't see it either.. I thought I remembered seeing some talk in the Green Button Forum about use on a MAC (which presumably would also work on LInux), but I think I was mistaken. Makes since, since EPG123 was originally designed for Windows Media Center, whi...

Re: Clearing extra "Lineups" through linux & NOT windows..

I think there is a Linux version of EPG123, but you can also install XMLTV and use tv_grab_zz_sdjson or tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite. Your SD account allows 4 lineups. There is at least one application (could be Jellyfin) that allows you to add lineups, but not remove them! Certainly report the bug! Rob...

Re: Tutorial on creating xmltv

we don't provide a direct XMLTV formatted URL. (often requested by Kodi and it's clones) Most people are using an approved application and that application provides instructions. We're only licensed to provide data to hobbyist created applications. If you' want US/Canada data, percdata.com can provi...
