WGconsole.WG.Common.timezonesdata.txt

Hi. Could someone point me to the location of WGconsole.WG.Common.timezonesdata.txt.

I've made a Kodi addon to configure Webgrab+Plus and I need a list of timezones for my wizards.

Thanks very much. I've got a setting to modify the timezones of the ini files but it needs manual entry of the timezone at the moment.

This will let me make it a much more simple select dialog.

Wow, cool.

We'll have to check your plugin. Maybe we could see how you use our stuff and look if we can adjust/change our way of doing stuff.

Only hope you don't always download the full siteini.pack from our server?

It's a manual one off download that is cached in the addon's setting directory. I hope that is ok with you.

I haven't worked out a sensible way to do incremental updates from you yet. Maybe you could help.

There aren't that many users so far but I haven't advertised it anywhere apart from the Kodi forum and LibreELEC Webgrab service thread.

Well, changing the timezone in the siteini file is not recommended. And on most of the site, it can't be done.

The timezone inside the siteini file, is the timezone where the server is in. So if a a site shows 10pm for example, we have to know in what time zone this is. And internally it should be converted to a UTC.

What you want, is to change the way WG++ outputs the times. The time WG++ outputs is the correct one. It is only a few XMLTV importers/viewer, that don't read the value correct. So therefore, adjusting the timezone, will only make things worse.

@Blackbear199 Thanks for that. It's just what I need.

@francis I found that the only way to compensate for being at the end of a vpn or in a different country was to modify the ini timezone where possible. It's difficult to work out for sure what is going on when you aren't in the same place as the tv guide. By the time it gets into a Kodi TV Guide it gets really complicated as some take the timezone offset in the xmltv file into consideration and some don't.

If you can suggest the best way to deal with all these timezone compensations I would be very grateful.

My TV Guide is TV Guide Fullscreen which does take the timezone into consideration but the default one from twinther doesn't.

Thanks for that.

I think it is even more complicated than that when you have to generate the cookie file for some sites through a vpn. I spent a long time with someone working out how to do it when they were in the US and used a vpn back to the UK. The US tv.com times had to be double compensated for for some reason.

That's why I had the option to change the timezone of each tv provider so they could fix these sort of problems themselves.

I'll see how far I can get with your merge script and I'll probably be back for more help when my head explodes. ;) Thanks.
