    I just saw this discussed in another thread, but can't find it now -- sorry.

    Could someone please point me to the code for the Export button on the xmltv mapping screen?
    Can't be much more than --
    open file;
    while(extract works) {write extract to text file};
    Close file;​
    --- can it?
    Maybe I can recall enough to make a separate program to reverse an export. Or is this a really dumb idea?

    This would be a useful because -
    Schedules Direct > mc2xml > tvguide.xml
    Zap2it.com > zap2xml > tvguide.xml
    TVGuide.com > zap2xml > tvguide.xml
    anything else that makes tvguide.xml​
    - are all essentially the same process, and it would handy to save the mappings for one or more in order to try the others without manually mapping 40+ channels repeatedly.
