.ini for Denmark

Hi,

I am the author of Xepg, the xmltv import tool for DVBViewer.

We need a new grabber, so I recommended WebGrabPlus. I have shortly tested all the Danish ones:

allente.dk: works.

tv.yousee.dk: works, but had troubles if the title contains episodes on the form (3:7). the title was then split at the : and the rest put into the subtitle.

tvguide.dk: didn't work.

tvtid.tv2.dk: works.

viasat.dk: didn't work.

For all the working ones Season/Episode is on the form

episode-num system="onscreen" S2 E6

For Xepg it better (more flexible) to have it as

episode-num system="xmltv_ns" 1.5.

Request: Ad episode-num system="xmltv_ns" whenever you have episode-num system="onscreen"

yes you can add or change (if it set to episodesystem=onscreen) to episodesystem=xmltv_ns in site line. Webgrab++ by default use onscreen for episode system.
will check the siteini

Since DVBViewer has users from a lot of countries that would require changes in many .ini files!

In Xepg I will offer to convert onscreen to xmltv_ns (if possible) and then use the format settings for xmltv_ns. Problem solved, thanks for your answer.

FYI, formatting EPG in Xepg: se attached EPGFormat.jpg

Hi i checked couple siteini you indicated as didn't work, they work here. Can you tell me what exactly was wrong ?
Suggest you to run siteinipack update either via exe or thru the script (linux) and the do a run with update "c" (set timespan=0) this option will create a fresh channel list for the siteini you have in config, because we do not update channel list, it could be that you used a channel that doesn't exsist anymore or has changed siteid.
Any problem please post webgrab_log.txt

"Suggest you to run siteinipack update either via exe" How do I do that?
Attached log files for tvtid.dk with update=c and update=f

I think the authors missed the file in last install. Place it in C:\Program Files (x86)\WebGrab+Plus\bin
update c aaould have produced a fresh channel list in you webgrab app folder

Hm, how did you get it to work? I have downloaded that zip file, placed it into a bin folder (which I had to create first), run it, but doesn't reall change much, other than it downloads 92MB of data. TV-Guide still not working.

Think I got it working now. Missed the point that said a new channel file would be created in main folder. Was expecting it to be placed in the site ini folder for Denmark.

@rco133:

I think it should have been this bin folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\WebGrab+Plus\bin

The reason why I am so interested in Season/Episode numbers is that DVBViewer is very powerfull for recording series. Only one click is needed to record all seasons and episodes of a series, assuming the numbers are at the end of the title or even somewhere in the subtitle.

tv.yousee.dk.ini

Yousee is actually my tv provider, so I can see the native EPG from the antenna. Here a few titles from that:

Antikkrejlerne XXII (12:25) (12)
Kender Du Typen? 2021 - Med fisk og forsyningsangst (24)
Curlingklubben begynder til... (4:5) - Ikke dig igen! Det er sportstema nu! (4)

What a mess! Fortunatly it looks much better at the tv.yousee.dk site:

Seems that here generally ':' or '-' is used to separate title into the real title and subtitle.

Antikkrejlerne XXII (9:25)

Could that be resolved into
title=Antikkrejlerne
episode (system=xmltv_ns)=21.8/25.

Forsvundne verdener og skjulte skatte II (3:3) - Verdens ældste by

Could that be resolved into
title=Forsvundne verdener og skjulte skatte
subtitle=Verdens ældste by
episode (system=xmltv_ns)=1.2/3.

The total number of episodes is quite nice to have.

You can also download siteini pack here as zipped https://github.com/SilentButeo2/webgrabplus-siteinipack/tree/master/site... and place it where you like it, preferred overwrite the original one on the created path.

I have now successfully implemented the conversion of onscreen episode numbers to xmltv_ns, so users can display it how they want.

I have to write a help file on using wg++ with Xepg.

I see in the documentation that wg++ can be launched with a config folder as parameter. Since Xepg by default launches grabbers in parallel (launched at the same time), my question is:

can

WebGrab+Plus.exe D:\Folder1
and
WebGrab+Plus.exe D:\Folder2

run side by side?

yes you can run multiple instances.
I asked the author to set episode system in config, so you will not need to change all siteini's, but i have no idea when it will be done.

"yes you can run multiple instances"
Great, then WebgrabPlus is fully supported by Xepg.

"I asked the author to set episode system in config, so you will not need to change all siteini's, but i have no idea when it will be done."

There is no need to make any changes. Xepg has a lot of EPG format settings. I just added another:

(see attaced image)

This way the Xepg user can have the same output as if it was xmltv_ns.

However, in general I would recommend to deliver both types of Episode formats: onscreen and xmltv_ns.

The allente is a no go for me. The program listings fits very badly with yousee.

I am currently experimenting with a mixture of tvguide.dk and tvtid.tv2.dk (without the xml tags):

channel update="i" site="tvguide.dk" site_id="dr1#dk" xmltv_id="[DK] DR1.tvguide">DR1
channel update="i" site="tvguide.dk" site_id="dr2#dk" xmltv_id="[DK] DR2.tvguide">DR2
channel update="i" site="tvtid.tv2.dk" site_id="3" xmltv_id="TV 2 DANMARK.tvtid">TV 2 DANMARK
channel update="i" site="tvtid.tv2.dk" site_id="4" xmltv_id="TV 2 Echo.tvtid">TV 2 Echo
channel update="i" site="tvtid.tv2.dk" site_id="31" xmltv_id="TV 2 CHARLIE.tvtid">TV 2 CHARLIE

Note that I added .tvguide or .tvtid to the xmltv_id and changed the channel names to the DVBViewer channel names. The latter ensures that the Auto Pair will find all pairings.

I am very interested in Season and Episode numbers. DR1, DR2 seems to be pretty OK. The other misses the Season. I plan to add an option to use the Year as Season if no season. The Year is present here.

I have now published a new version of Xepg.

I am very satisfied wit the EPG I get from tvguide.dk and tvtid,tv2.dk. There are even some episode totals, I have never seen that in an xmltv file before.

I think the DVBViewer and Xepg should be on your list of pvr systems.

Attached some images to use for that.

The is no simple script example on how to use. It is all in the links Using WebgrabPlus and Automate at my site www.a123.dk.
The DVBViewer home site is https://www.dvbviewer.com/en/index.php

Yes, and nowadays we are watching TV on up tp 4k screens using DVBViewer/KODI.

Will you add Dvbviewer/Xepg to your section "Interact with your PVR software"?
