SchedulesDirect to xmltv

* output custom SchedulesDirect channels to xmltv.xml file
* login and scheduled update timer
* SchedulesDirect costs $25 per year

This addon uses the code from @bluezed's EPG-Direct TV Guide to create an xmltv file that can be used in other TV Guides.

I don't use the service personally, so if anyone does who would like to take this code on and enhance it or fork it, you are very welcome.

Thanks.

It could do with some testing and optimising for incremental updates.

I'll just mention, in case anyone's not already aware of it, that there is a similar type of script called zap2xml that uses the free Zap2it listings to create an xmltv.xml file. I'm not saying one is better than the other, just noting that this alternative script exists.

There is an article here that explains how to set it up and configure it. It's on a site specific to free-to-air satellite TV but I have found that it's also applicable to those who use regular TV antennas. It's specifically directed toward Kodi users so even if you choose to use the script in the first post, some of the information in that article (in particular about how to get TVHeadEnd to read in the file, for those using TVHeadEnd) would likely be just as applicable no matter which program is used to produce the xmltv.xml file.

I don't know all the details of zap2it but I know that SchedulesDirect is apparently paying the providers something for the schedule data. So you can know that you are contributing to someone's livelihood. Angel If it is a scam I would like to know that too, but it looks legit to me.

You can also use webgrab++ and my addon to set it up if you're feeling poor too.
