Apologies in advance in my title is confusing please allow me to explain.
I require a reliable XMLTV / epg source for Irish & UK channels that will give me a 7 day guide I can update as often as needed (daily) to maintain the 7 day guide, this data will be used to allow my users (web/android/windows) to view tv guide, set favourites, reminders and eventually the app will talk to their set top box to record tv shows they are interested in.
So my question is, can you recommend a reliable xmltv source I can use for this?
I had a look at some “grabbers” and these seem to basically rip listings from the likes of radiotimes.com (they have depreciated this service) – I also asked the press association (these supply radiotimes, news papers with listings but their requirements and prices were out of my reach) etc,i would like to use something like the one my dad has on his set top box that seems really good or maybe you can suggest a better implementation knowing what im trying to do in the form on a windows app or something I can access from a windows machine to give me the xmltv data. I hope im explaining myself well
Thank you kindly.
