Thanks for the update.Hi, PN23.
SD-xml is their old traditional service and still being used actively due to easy access support for old end devices/grabbers. To use json service, you need a grabber which supports post/put/delete request methods for different operations. Also json service gives 20days of data. Tempest able to do these sync requests for json service and I more or less have a template in my mind about grabbing and channel creation. But currently I definately dont suggest you to make any try with Tempest since they may notice that request done with an unapproved application and they may terminate your subscription as stated in their user aggrement. I will officially apply them for application approval within this week and if I can get approval (I hope since only criteria is having a non-profit tool like Tempest), I will release an upgrade(rv1.3.2) for sha1 hashing which is needed for json login.
I dont know which countries/regions you need but during waiting you may try some recently added N.America siteconfigs such as USA and Canada which supports all the regions with thousands of channels and more may be generated with explanied zip/postal/region code methode in my github repo.
And with my new page;
I forgot to say earlier, I could not get the newer version (20191022) of the JSON API to authenticate so have been using the older stable version (20141201) which has been no problem to authenticate and generate a token.
