    Hi there.....
    I use TVxb to grab EPG from www.dr.dk, and it is working fine on most of my channels, but i´d like to find EPG info on the rest of the channels also, so i would be really happy to get some help on how to find these:

    Canal+ Film 3
    C More film 2
    Extreme Sports
    Canal Motor
    Eurosport 2
    Dantoto
    4 Sport
    BBC Food
    CNBC Nordic
    Sky News
    Adventure
    Travel Channel
    City TV
    Music Box
    VH1 Classic
    Nordic TCM
    ShowTime
    Toon Disney
    jetix
    Hlm_Jtx
    Verdikanalen
    tvins

    Are the schedules available from another country?

    Is the Danish program line-up the same as in other Euro countries? If so you can copy and paste channel definitions from TVxb.ini files for other countries into your TVxb.ini. You might need to add a timezone=+0100, timezone=UTC (or whatever) item if it's a different timezone from Denmark.

    For example there is an "Extreme Sports" channel on Sky in the UK. So if the Danish programs are the same as the UK programs, then you can use the UK Sky schedule.

    If you can't find a definition in any other country TVxb.ini file, you would need to find the on-line schedule for that channel, then create a TVxb definition. You need to work-out the URL pattern to download and it can get quite tricky if postdata is involved, however, in most cases it's possible to download the schedule.

    Hejsa

    I don't really know how that works, but perhaps you can get some info from www.ontv.dk?

    I've been using o2grabber, but I'm having much trouble with it these past weeks, so I'm going to try and use what you are using!

    good luck

    ontv tvxb definition

    I haven't tested this, but in theory the following should work if placed in the TVxb.ini file:

    DR1 - for example

    [dr1.dk]
    name=dr1
    url=http://ontv.dk/?date=[day=yyyy-mm-dd]
    htmlstart=<img src="http://ontv.dk/imgs/logoer/dr1.gif"
    htmlend=<img src="http://ontv.dk/imgs/logoer/dr2.gif"
    special=ignoreallformatting

    The other channels will need different htmlstart and htmlend values
    It should also be possible to download detailed program decritions by adding a special=fulldescriptions item.

    I have a config file for WebEPG to get data from www.dr.dk. (only one channel, but more can be quickly added). With that and the other sites already supported, it should be possible to get all that channels you want.

    I will check the dr.dk file into the CVS tonight.
