directv sports south america

directv recently made some changes to their south america sites.
they added a shield to block web scrapping,as of right now there is no way to get the epg.

anybody needing the directv sports channels you can get them from my server.
i will grab the epg data and host it for users.
its will update once a day at approx UTC-04:00
no files will be posted, its safer for me to grab data once/day than thousands of users grabbing the same data themselves.
they havnt added this site with the shield yet and hopefully they wont.
if they do we will loose that epg also.

download the ini and create a channel list.

Edit (28 Feb 2023):
moved to donator area.

Do I place your .ini file in the newly created directory, or the "International" or "Argentina" or "Columbia" directory

anywhere you wish,myself i would create(if its not already there) a folder named siteini.user in you webrag config directory.
you can either put it int there by itself or inside another folder like south America,or whatever u want to name it.
ini's in the siteini.user folder dont get overwritten by siteini.pack files,its a users personal folder to webgrab.

siteini.user

you can even just put it in your webgrab config directory.
when webgrab searches for a ini it looks for the file in this order.

1. webgrab config directory
2. siteini.user folder
3. siteini.pack folder

I get the following report (version V4.2.4.6):

That's why I asked which data (name) to enter under site_id="" as well as, xmltv_id=""
I tried to enter data from directvsports.com.channels.xml (International) or individual countries, but then I get:

if you cannot figure out how to make a channel list then you shouldnt be using webgrab.

I read the instructions carefully and tried several times. Even before I addressed you. I created a .channels.xml for your .ini.

Otherwise, to get the data I go to the page and use DevTools, for example:
8: {id: 926, name: "SK 5 HR (Portals)", ageRating: null, categories: [{id: 1, primary: false}],...}
For DIRECTV Sports, I don't know which site to get the information from......

Sorry if I bothered you with something that is obvious to others.

sorry,i didnt test this.i used this setup for a few friends who were geo blocked and i would grab the epg data for them.
i havnt used it in years since.

seems there is a issue with the dotnet webgrab version as it isnt decompressing the file.
V3.x works fine.

for now i added a decompressed version of the data.
edit the ini and on the url_index line at the end change la.gz to la.xml

It seems to be fine now. I have to check, and rest, in Kodi - Raspberry 4 (LibreELEC) and TV box (Android).

attach your webgrab log file please. I barely can see a duplicate error, you cannot repeat same channel line in your config, you have "duplicate xmltv_id value"
Also there is a sample here https://github.com/SilentButeo2/webgrabplus-siteinipack/blob/master/site...
just set your license data username, email used in forum and the license password (see user panel)
