Hi,

Just wondering if anyone knows the contacts for either the xml EPGs generated at www.haventech.co.nz or epg.pvr.geek.nz?

The Haventech one does not have TVNZ listings and a few channel name spelling mistakes, both have J2 and Sky One instead of 63 and the BOX, and neither have listings for the upcoming Comedy Central channel.

It would be good to see if this stuff can be corrected and included.


Cheers,
Satch.

Doing a whois on either domain is always a good start to get contact details

I'd be careful about putting too many details here as Sky and TVNZ have tried to shutdown numerous EPG sources in the past.

Also in the case of the Comedy Channel it hasn't launched yet and will probably only start showing EPG data from around 7 days before launch.

Oh, didn't realise this.  Thanks for letting me know.

I think if they were worried about being followed they would provide more anonymous whois details for their domain names Cool

... or they have already organised their legal team.
