tvguide grabbing multiple channels fails

If you grab multiple channels with the tvguide.com siteini then anything after the first successful grab fails due to no show in index page.

This is with grabbing channels from the same zip code in the same usa provider regardless of if the keep index line in the siteini is enabled or not.

This is with Revision 20

I've gone back to Revision 18 which works fine (although its a lot slower) and also allows me to add my own channel logo lines as its not encrypted as revision 20 doesn't pull any channel logos even though they are on the tvguide.com website.

Can the above issues be looked at please

Here you go - with this config on revision 20 it will grab the first channel successfully then the rest will fail with no index error with or without the keep index line in the siteini

The same config works fine with revision 18 with or without the keep index line in the siteini (haven't tested rev 19)

There's no channel logos being pulled with rev 20 so that would be good to add

Tested it out and it all works fine as before with the following exception

In rev 18 when the show was new live or a repeat it would have this in brackets at the end of the show title eg My Show (New)
But now it has gone back to just having a * at the end of the of the title for new shows and nothing for live and repeats

Can you update the siteini so it has the new live and repeat in the titles again please

Here you go - NBC is probably the best one to test it out on as it has a mixture of new live and repeat shows

So at the moment on NBC is the 43rd Ryder Cup - on rev 18 it will put (live) at the end of the title. On the current version it doesn't put anything
Ryder cup is also on Sunday too if you miss it tonight

There's loads of new shows that have the * at the end of the title instead of (new)

Ordinary Joe on Sat 2nd October which is a repeat has (repeat) in the description which is good enough, but new and live shows would been good to have at the end of the title in brackets like in rev18

well, rev.21 it now adds (since it was fixed with wg++ 3.0) the premiere tag, if you want can replace the "*" with "New"
also (premiere) at the end of description which i think can be removed.
Is that what you want ?

I would like the * to be replaced with (new)

Also (live) to be added to the title of any show that is live like in rev18 of this siteini. If you look on the tvguide.com website it shows which programs are live

The descriptions can be left as is

For you to test. I think since now title includes live and new, should be removed from description and leave only (continued)
what do you think ?

Yes that's fine thank you. You can leave (repeat) in the description rather than the title
