Hi, just installed the latest version 0.5.0.7 and I tried to download epg data with TVSpielfilm and EpgData, but I get Exceptions in both cases:

TVSpielfilm:

EpgData:

Any idea what I could change here to make it work?

Ahh, sorry, just saw a comment on the german epg buddy blog about Tele5 that causes trouble at the moment. Removed it and now at least TVSpielfilm indeed seems to work fine.

But any idea on the EpgData issue?

    If you have properly inserted your epgData credentials in the EPG-Buddy config, then no, sadly.
    As we stared developing EPG-Buddy Lightshock has an epgData account, that's why we included epgData into EPG-Buddy. As TVSpeilfilm is as good as epgData but for free he canceled his subscription and used TVSpielfilm instead. We now don't have any account for epgData any longer so we're not able to test and fix epgData module...

    Yes, I did. Thank you anyway for the fast reply. Would it help to lend my PIN to Lightshock for some time until it works again?

    I am a software developer, too (C++, C#). If I could get access to the sources I might be able to debug the issue myself and send you a merge request for the bugfix.

    Hi.
    A new version 0.5.0.8 is available for download. Download link can be found in first post, as always.
    It's a bugfix release that fixes the issues with "TVSpielfilm" and "epgData".

    Hi. running mp 2.2.2 and epg-buddy 5.0.8 grabbing tvguide data in USA successfully for some time now. 2 days ago, windows 10 flagged and quarantined epg-buddy as a serious threat. see attached JPG. Is epg-buddy truly infected or is it safe?

    Hi @Lehmden

    First of all, epg-buddy is really usefull and very well done.
    I use "XMLTV reWriter" for years. But is really tricky to set it

    Unfortunatelly, I need some new feature to be able to switch to your programm.
    1) I'm using ArgusTV but with a SQL Server Database.
    Could it be possible to add this database TV setup ?
    2) I use xmltv files provided by the rytec network
    Could it be possible to add at least a "run task before grabbing"

    The best would be to add rytec as an EPG source like you dis perfectly with WebGrab+plus

    here a Powershell script I use to collect my files :
    Bash:
    #source liste
    #http://epg.vuplus-community.net/rytec.VUplus.sources.xml
    
    $work_directory="c:\temp\"
    $Destination_directory="c:\xmltv\"
    
    $7zipPath = "$env:ProgramFiles\7-Zip\7z.exe"
    
    $url_guide="rytecTNT_Basic.xz"
    $url_sites=    "epgspot.com/rytec_epg/",
                "http://www.xmltvepg.nl/",
                "http://rytecepg.ipservers.eu/",
                "http://rytecepg.wanwizard.eu/",
                "http://www.vuplus-community.net/rytec/"
    
    foreach ($url_site in $url_sites)
    {
        $url=($url_site+$url_guide)
        $pathfile=($work_directory+$url_guide)
        #PowerShell wget equivalent
        try{(new-object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile($url, $pathfile);Write-Host "found " $url;break}
        catch{Write-Host "dont find $url"}
    }
    $7zipParam = "e -y $pathfile -o$Destination_directory"
    Start-Process $7zipPath -ArgumentList $7zipParam -wait
    You will find the name of the guide for your country in the http://epg.vuplus-community.net/rytec.VUplus.sources.xml page
    Just replace the name in the variable and you will have the file downloaded and unzipped in the $Destination_directory

    Hi.
    I'm using ArgusTV but with a SQL Server Database.
    Not a very common combination. I have to see if I can add this "blind" as I have no way to test this combination... I'll try it but no promises... If I get this done you need to test it and report back, if it's working or not...

    I use xmltv files provided by the rytec network
    You can try to add the URL into the "External XML" Data source. Normally EPG-Buddy can download and handle compressed xml files. I will see, if we could incorporate Rytec as a full EPG data source... But this may take it's time...
    Aside this It should not be too hard to add a "run before grabbing" option similar to the already existing "run after grabbing" option. But I would prefer to add Rytec as a full data source, if possible...

    Will start later today to implement something useful.
