Is anyone using an EPG grabber for Italian TV?
tv_grab_it doesn't work very well and aI'm searching for an alternative.
Thanks, Francesco

Schedules Direct's SD-JSON lists Italy as one of the countries supported so may be worth a try.

I'd try the 7day free trial to see whether it's any better than what you have now first though.

Is your issue with Italian grabbers related to an improper XMLTV format returned by the "skylife" backend?
That is what I found, and I had to reprocess the xml produced from skylife's output in order to make it acceptable by mythfilldatabase.
Skylife listings are very poor in detail, however, and I use them only for la7, la7d and a few other channels that aren't provided by other backends.
How do you find the Schedule Direct's listings?
