Hello,

I want to use the XMLTV Windows version, but unfortunately the grabber for epgdata.com is missing here. When I enter "xmltv tv_grab_eu_epgdata --help" I get the error message: "Sorry, tv_grab_eu_epgdata is not available in this Windows binary release, although it is included in xmltv source releases."

Is it possible to get this fixed?

Best regards,
-Manuel-

    To be honest, I have no idea how or who is deciding which grabbers go into the Windows distribution.

    I put everything in XMLTV.EXE I can. If something isn't in it, it probably has a dependency I can't get to work or would cause the executable to become huge.

    According to the README.Win32 file, adding epgdata caused xmltv.exe to grow from 9M to 15M, which seemed an unreasonable burden to place on old systems.

    I'll check again.

    looks like the module that made it grow was removed.

    Please test http://alpha-exe.xmltv.org
