Has anybody tried updating their EPG (I have been using xmltvnz since its inception), but it would appear the site set to scrape from -http:\\listings.tvnz.co.nz- is not available anymore. I last updated on the weekend, so this is an issue as of now.

I have a full week's guide to midnight Friday. Will go through the options in the meantime, but what are others doing to circumvent this BS situation? Don't they want people to watch their programmes...& maybe, advertising. We're talking about free-to-air TV, not subscription TV like S*&!

Oh yeah, I tried setting my bat file to scrape both Saturn & Xtra: no go. It will scrape the JuiceTV from the Saturn site.

If you have satellite or terrestrial TV (but not cable) you could try the software discussed in this thread: MHEG5 EPG Data grabber Grabbing data from the broadcast stream is surely the most satisfactory solution as it doesn't involve anyone hosting EPG data.

The application is available from Sourceforge http://sourceforge.net/projects/epgcollector/
