ConfigMaker tool for multiple configurations

Like many others I want to have EPG on my satellite receiver and WebGrab++ seemed like great tool.
Since I'm also lazy I don't want to do all the hard work of channel mapping, editing configurations, etc.. over and over again.
Modifying/maintaining one "grab" configuration is not that much of a deal, but problems rise when you have multiple configurations to run. Constantly copy/pasting site keys, updating inis & xmls, checking paths. Unacceptable.
What I also learned was that many others have same problems.


WebGrab+Plus is a multi-site incremental xmltv epg grabber. It collects tv-program guide data from selected tvguide sites for your favourite channels.

Dear users,

Another beta 3.0.3 … and the addition of ‘custom’ licenses ..

The introduction of a license for the use of the program with release 3.0 has been well accepted by the community. Most users seem to agree with the objectives of it ... to give donating users and registered users some advantages.

But, as was to be expected, not every user is happy with the limitations of the various license types. And, also, it became clear that there roughly two types of users:

* The ‘private’ user who just want epg for his own or family needs in a PVR or IPTV application.
and ..
* The ‘power’ user who , for whatever purpose, needs epg for high numbers of channels and siteini’s and more than two computers to run the program.

To address these shortcomings, we introduce ‘custom’ license. This allows any user to get what he needs.

At the same time, the values of the standard licenses will be tuned to address the needs of the ‘private’ users mainly.

For some current users, this ‘tuning’ may suddenly limit epg grabbing. To avoid this problem, all users with an active ‘donator_license’ will get a ‘custom’ license with the same...

Dear users,

If your license remains 'classic' despite upgraded to V3.0.2 beta, you have two options :
1. Be patient, as soon as your license will be updated (normally once a week) it will be set to the license you are entitled to.
2. If you don't want to wait, run the program one time in license update 'force' mode .
You do that by adding 'f' or 'force' to the license element in the config file :

<license wg-username="username" registered-email="forum email-address" password="password">f</license>

Also, when you still use a previous version of the program and experience license hardware (hw_id) mismatches or other hardware related license issues, upgrade to V3.0.2. To speedup fixing this use the license force mode as explained above. Remember to upgrade to V3.0.2 on both computers if you run WG++ on two computers!

!!! Don't forget to remove the 'force' mode after all of this! (This mode performs unnecessary license updates which will slow down grabbing)

This beta fixes a bug in the license section that disables necessary license checks,
resulting in 'permanent' message 'License check disabled by WG admin'

It further has an improved license hardware id (hw_id) creation and a more relaxed hw_id matching ,
which will reduce the number of false hw_id mismatches.
