    After working correctly for a few months, WebEPG has now become totally unreliable for me.
    It does grab data, but it is always randomly missing about half of the channels or days that I have configured. Two consecutive runs of WebEPG will deliver different results. Channels or days that are succesfully grabbed in the first run can be missing from the second run and vice versa.

    The log file is full of grabber errors like these:

    The strange thing is that it seems to get no listings for e.g.
    TVGids.nl - Zoeken POST:
    If I type this URL directly into my browser I get perfectly correct listings.

    I have been experimenting with delays in the grabber configuration, but this does not help. As you can see in the above example in this run it is allready the first channel that fails. (The second channel from this run grabbed OK BTW).

    Any ideas, anyone ?

    I changed my grabber file to match the listing type and html sections as marcsulf posted Here and now my webepg is grabbing without the same errors you mentioned.
