Re: Channel's Change of Name

if you want it to run it automatically add "--auto-config add" to your tv_grab_na_dd.conf file. That way any new stations get added automatically. It's also not a bad idea to run _na_dd in "--quiet" mode and generate a message if it outputs anything (that would be an error or warning) In your app, ...

Re: Channel's Change of Name

My software simply runs the schedules direct tv_grab_na_dd to get listings data into XML files. My software executes that and uses the XML file results. There is no human involvement. How would my arrangement know that the "call sign" has changed? Do I have to have my software parse something produc...

Re: Channel's Change of Name

Robert - thanks for the response. But I'm a dummy here: I ran the schedules direct script on my PC where you give it your service provider name and zip or some such, and the script connects to the servers and returns a list of channel names/numbers. You edit that to select yes/no on each channel. At...

Channel's Change of Name

Is there a better way I can deal with this kind of thing... Suddenly, Animal Planet disappeared from my listings. I am a SageTV user so I went to Sage's guide and Animal Planet is fine in their listings. I think they come from the same source. The devil is in the details: Sage's listing says APLP fo...

Kudos and...

Thank you guys SO much for the super reliable service. Using my own-written software, I pull down a day's of listings once a day. And feed that into my own software to reformat/display a vertically scrolling guide formatted just like we want it (HTML). In huge font. 800 pixel wide. So it looks good ...

Re: Tribune having problems, empty <PROGRAMS> section

OK, we're paying now for data.

"Wait until Monday" is not adequate- my app needs one download per day.

I also use SageTV and it's EPG is working for the same cable TV provider and lineup as I have used in Schedules Direct. Same database source, I believe.

So if they can cope, why can't SD?
