I like to introduce our latest tool. It's called "EPG-Buddy" and should make EPG grabbing as easy as possible. Up to now a good EPG is one of the most complicated things to achieve in the MP world. Nearly all available sources needs complicated scripting and fiddling with XML files or similar. "On Air" EPG often is of bad quality or not available at all. Available Sources for grabbing EPG data from online sources are hard to configure if you are new to this topic. Here is where EPG-Buddy jumps in. With EPG-Buddy you can configure your EPG with a few mouse clicks and after you're done your EPG is refreshed completely invisible and automatic on a daily or weekly base. You can use various sources for your EPG data. At beginning TVSpielfilm (German website with direct and ultra fast data download) and WebGrab+Plus are supported. More will follow soon.
Installation / Configuration
Simply run the installer. Sometimes there is an extra option at the end of the installation procedure to update your database. This only is necessary if you have a previous version installed. If you install EPG-Buddy for the first time or have uninstalled it completely before the installation, then it is not necessary to run the upgrade tool.
