[--offset N] [--quiet] [--fast]


Output TV listings for several channels available in Holland. The data comes from www.tvgids.nl. The grabber relies on parsing HTML so it might stop working at any time.

First run tv_grab_nl --configure to choose, which channels you want to download. Then running tv_grab_nl with no arguments will output listings in XML format to standard output.

--configure Prompt for which channels, and write the configuration file.

--config-file FILE Set the name of the configuration file, the default is ~/.xmltv/tv_grab_nl.conf. This is the file written by --configure and read when grabbing.

--output FILE Write to FILE rather than standard output.

--days N Grab N days. The default is one week.

--offset N Start N days in the future. The default is to start from today.

--fast Only fetch summary information for each programme. This is only title, start/stop times, categories.

--quiet Suppress the progress messages normally written to standard error.

--capabilities Show which capabilities the grabber supports. For more information, see <http://wiki.xmltv.org/index.php/XmltvCa…>

--version Show the version of the grabber.

--help Print a help message and exit.
