    Summary: Allow TV Server to call a .bat/.exe file regularly to update the EPG

    Area: TV Server Plugin: XMLTV

    Description:

    There is already an option under TV Server/Plugins XMLTV to scedule grabbing tvguide xml file via a url. A lot of users use a .exe or .bat file to repopulate their epg. They then have to setup a task in windows that is run each day to update the epg. Wouldn't be better if the xmltv plugin for tv server could call the .bat/.exe file instead. It already has a box for url to epg file. Could the box also be used to enter the shortcut to update the epg instead?

    Advantages:

    1. TV Server is aware whenever the EPG is being updated, this will prevent tv server going into standby during epg grabbing
    2. Easier to setup, some users may find it difficult to setup a scheduled task
    3. To setup a scheduled task your login must have a password associated

    Disadvantages:

    None?
