EPG for Samsung TV Plus

Would be nice if it's possible to get EPG for the new Samsung TV Plus service for various countries.
Probably needs some traffic analyzing with Wireshark or something with a SamsungTV or Samsung Phone/Tablet.

Seems they have got up an betapage for US channels atleast for now so those channels can be grabbed there.

You need an US IP to access the website.
Hopefully this will rollout to all regions soon.

I know this is an old thread, but before I start a new one i thought I'd ask if you by chance still have the .ini file you created and could share it?

Samsung doesn't post EPG data much in advance, but I don't mind calling the script more often.

Thanks!

Yeah would be nice to get listings for nordic countries for example.
You can find listings here https://i.mjh.nz/SamsungTVPlus/ but not for all countries.

most iptv players accept multiple guide.xml links.
just add the url's for the ones you want and map them,really no need to create a ini for these.

Yes but that's not the problem.
The problem is that there is no nordic EPG.
So someone needs to create xml files for Sweden for example.

Can take a look later.
I don't know how Matt Huisman get those files, maybe he got them from an app in phone or TV.
There is an addon for Kodi maybe should take a look there.

Some of the channels is available on Rakuten so maybe better luck there?

there is already a rakuten ini in the network folder but sweden isnt included(many other countries are).
it wouldnt take much to add it if i could see the data.

Totally missed that Network folder that will help a little atleast with some channels and maybe other things too.

https://gizmo.rakuten.tv/v3/menus?classification_id=282&device_identifie...

When i look in rakuten channels file i can see things like this: 277#pl_filmstream-spi
Maybe it should be 282#se_filmstream-spi for Sweden?

EDIT: EPG seems to match for that channel so i guess i have some work to do later :)

Works fine except for this on a few places.

Exception.Message: '/tv/channel[@id = 'DAZN Women's Football']' has an invalid token.

' char must be removed then it works fine.

remove or change the apostrophe to a ` in the xmltv_id on its channel line.
u can leave it in the display name if u wish.
its a webgrab bug.

another update.

there are some issues with rakuten.
not all epg is in CET time.
uk is +0000 and finland is +0200 right now for a few.
the ini needs to use the users local time and adjust the start/stop so when webgrab runs it gets a full day epg based on the users time offset.
ex.
i am utc-0400 right now.
so i would want to grab from 0400 today to 0400 tomorrow UTC time so i get 24 hrs epg in my local time(midnight to midnight)
if your local timezone was utc+0100 it would be 23:00 yesterday to 23:00 tonight.

users dont need to adjust grabbing time,the above info is what webgrab uses for the epg request url.

with that all said edit the ini and on the site {xxx} line change the timezone setting to that of the pc running webgrab.
the only other way around this(using the previous ini) is to set the timezone to the local timezone of the country your grabbing epg for.
this is fine if your only using one country,if using more than one then the ini would need to be copied,renamed, and a different timezone set for that country.
