Super speedy Webgrab parallel processing.

It splits up the Webgrab ini file and runs the grab with multiple instances of Webgrab in parallel.

This looks like it would be pretty useful, but it appears that it's configured for v.1 of WebgrabPlus. The .exe looks for the config file in the ServerCare folder which is no longer used in v2. I think that's what's going on, as I just tried it and nothing happened....Tongue

Last week I installed WebGrab+Plus. The EPG worked the first time. However, it does not update anymore.

[Error ] Could find existing channel (xmltv_id=Eurosport) in the config file

and

[Error ] Unable to update channel Eurosport
[Critical] Generic syntax exception:
[Critical] message:
[Error ] no index page data received from Eurosport
[Error ] unable to update channel, try again later
[ Info ] Existing guide data restored

Any idea what is wrong with my setup?

Thank you.

I haven't touched this for a long time and webgrab has moved everything around in version 2.
I think the config files that this addon creates are still ok but you need to point to the new exe and probably download new scrapers.

I'll have a look at an update as soon as I can.

Use the settings to point to the webgrab program exe.
Download Site Pack to get the scrapers.

How did you set it up in the first place?
You must have done that to get it working.

May-be it was my fault. In libreelec I did not apply change .start to .run in v8.0.104. I am just re-runnig the update again.

No. It did not fix my problem. I still get the following error messages:

[Error ] Unable to update channel Eurosport
[Critical] Generic syntax exception:
[Critical] message:
[Error ] no index page data received from Eurosport
[Error ] unable to update channel, try again later
[ Info ] Existing guide data restored!

I did a clean install of everything: libreelec, WebGrab+, and WebGrab+ Configuratior. It stopped working after 3 days, i. e. after the initial data was outdated. Then I run it again removing 2 channels. That's all.
Thank you.

It sounds like it is a problem with the scaper that you are trying to get the Eurosport channel from.
Use the Windows/Linux command line version of webgrab to see if it works there.
Try another provider if there is one for your channel.

I tried all the swiss providers for Eurosport.

tele.ch doesn't seem to work with the current version of its scraper.

You can ask questions about it here.
http://www.webgrabplus.com/content/telech-ini

The srf.ch Eurosport worked ok.
I don't know if they will have all your channels on there.

tele.ch might have made a simple change of their web page which breaks the scraper or they may have done a complete overhaul.

Thank you very much. Unfortunately, I cannot change tele.ch right now since I have no physical access to the Raspi. Anyway, I will ask in http://www.webgrabplus.com/content/telech-ini about any known problems. Thank you very much again.

First off let me say Awesome addon. I am setting Kodi up for my father, and this addon along with the instructions on how to schedule it to update were great.
I have run into one problem. No logos are showing up in my EPG addons. I have tried Renegades, Ivue and TV Guide Fullscreen. Any way to fix this?

I'm not sure how many of the webgrab scrapers add the channel logos.
Have a look in the xmltv file at the top for an icon field in the channels.
Code:
<channel id="I101.24434.schedulesdirect.org">
        <display-name>BBC Radio One</display-name>
        <icon src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/schedulesdirect/assets/stationLogos/s24434_h3_aa.png" />
    </channel>

There are a number of ways to build your own folder full of channel logos.

You can use the TheLogoDb.
There is some automation to match and grab the channel logos in
TV Guide Fullscreen \ Menu \ Channels \ Logos

You can have a look in other TV Guides for the source of their logos and borrow them.

You can look for channel icon packs in Google. There are some floating around in Github too.

You can build a folder full of channel logos from your addons in
TV Guide Fullscreen \ Settings \ Backup \ Download All Addon Folder Logos
You need to have Subscribed to Folders first in
TV Guide Fullscreen \ Menu \ Stream Setup \ Browse \ <addon> \ <folder> \ Add Folder

You can also try to modify the webgrab scrapers to download the logos or ask on the webgrab forum.

Look for index_urlchannellogo in the ini files to see if they scrape the channel logos.
There are a few UK ones that do. eg tvguide.co.uk
The only USA one that does is wwe.com
