Help with creating an ini for getTV US

Hello,

I have been trying to figure out how to index the show for the last five and a half hour and I'm not getting any wiser. I'm not the one to give up but I just want to move on and figure out the rest.

I came here hoping somone could help me get started with at least let me split the show into indexes, or however it works.

This is how far I've come, haha. I can't get index_showsplit to separate the various shows... frown

I'm using the latest beta version of WG++ and Windows 10

I have an issue getting the "now" listing with regular block search.
This the one you showed me.
index_showsplit.scrub {multi|<li class=listing>||</li>|</li>}

But I'd also like to include 
<li class=listing now>

Thank you. smiley
It can be hard to see that this small change can have another outcome.

Also, the manual/documentation is so comprehensive that it's overwhelming.
So it's nice to have someone tutor or guide you in the right direction. yes

index_start.scrub {single(debug)(pattern=”yyyyMMddTHHmmss”)|<span class="_start reminder"|||</span>|}

<span class="_start reminder" data-utc-start="20170927T040000Z" data-utc-end="20170927T050000Z">2017/09/27 00:00:00</span>

How can I scrub just the data-utc-start? I've been trying with ES and EE but nothing sticks...

Wow, that was fast. Block separators is supposed to be user friendly, haha.
But I can't understand how you can just look at a string and figure out how to scrub start and stop. surprise
Mind explaining how you did? blush

Very nice!
However, the time and date doesn't match my computers time and date. I don't know why that matters. All want is the  <programme start="20170927000000" to update to reflect that but I get this error instead.

Here it says Eastern time.

But why should MY time matter? I only want to put the starttime in the guide.xml

Edit:
I mean, for example, I can use WG with tv.com with UTC-08:00 without issue.

This is from tv.com.ini

urldate.format {datestring|yyyy-MM-dd}
url_index{url|http://www.XXXX.com/listings/singlestation/?start=##TIMESTAMP##&station=|channel|}

scope.range {(urlindex)|end}
index_variable_element.modify {calculate(format=date,unix)|'urldate'}
url_index.modify {replace|##TIMESTAMP##|'index_variable_element'}
end_scope

Is there something I can use for my get.tv.ini?

Okay, so how come I can grab epg from cookingchannel.com without issue and I can't see anything different in the code?

Here is the datestring that is fetched

<div data-time="2017-09-27T12:00:00Z" class="o-ProgramSchedule__m-EpisodeCard m-EpisodeCard show-more"

from the ini

timezone=Zulu|maxdays=7|cultureinfo=en-GB

index_start.scrub {single|time|"|"|class}

 

here is the time from get.tv

<span class="_start reminder" data-utc-start="20170927T040000Z" data-utc-end="20170927T050000Z">

[Error   ] startdatetime time scrubbed : 20170927T040000
[Error   ] computer date/time format: 28/09/2017 00:41:05

what is the difference that make it change?
here in sweden we use this format yyyy-MM-dd

I can't see why it needs to be converted?

I found these types and I'm only fetching listing. I don't know how to match all of them...

<li class=listing>
<li class="listing now">
<li class="listing primetime">

Mayber I can do it with regex but then I can't fetch title, start, stop, desc because they all just block separators. I would need to use regex on ALL that I want to match with, isn't that correct? frown

Yes, it is wierd. Only listing has no quotes...
That is why I thought it was wierd that I didn't catch all the shows for the day.

I can't use regex just like that, it will only fetch "listing now" and "listing primetime". Regular <li class=listing has no quotes.

Is it possible to fetch only listing (no quotes) and then fetch "listing now/primetime" and then merge it somehow?

Okay, so here is a finished ini file that finally works, haha!

I know you did most of the work and I have learned some of it, but for that I thank you!

Would you care to comment the things I did myself in this file?

If everything seem okay, is it possible to upload it on to the epg channels page under USA? smiley

index_category.scrub {single|<div class=genre>||</div>|</div>} <--- no | in the end?

Is this correct?

Okay, I understand.

Thanks again!

My channels are complete for now. ^^

Huh.. Wow. That was a twist in the end, haha.

Oh well, at least I learned something in the process. If no ini exist for any particular channel I can almost always create one. So that's good to know. :)
