http://rytecepg.ipservers.eu/epg_data/ - there are nice XMLTV EPG sources with the channel mapping using Enigma source ID's

Would it be possible to add Schedules Direct to the direct support list too? I see many people on the forums using this as appears to be the go-to guide data provider now.
What really would make Tvheadend stand out IMO would be an option to create a custom grabber. A custom grabber would allow the user to import data in various formats, XMLTV, JSON, YAML (and maybe CSV & INI) using the usual methods, netcat, http(s), maybe upload?. Tvheadend would then attempt to parse all fields and values. The user would then be presented with a list of internal EPG fields that they'd match with fields from the imported data.
So say I have the data (in ini as it's easier to type out):
[BBC News] channel=BBC ONE title=BBC News date=03/03/2017 start=22:00:00 end=22:35:00 description=The latest national and international news, with reports from BBC correspondents worldwide. Also in HD subtitle=The latest national and international news stars=4.0
Tvheadend would parse this & display a dialog, something like..:
Field | Drop down with fields found in data | -----------------------|-------------------------------------------| Field options, regex, time/date format options etc Channel name | channel | Title | title | Date | date | (0?[1-9]|[0-9]|3)[- /.](0?[1-9]|1)[- /.](19|20)\d\d Start Time | start | - Maybe a time format picker here? End Time | end | ditto Description | description | Subtitle | subtitle | Rating | stars | Programme Image | image |
This could be done using a wizard type interface
Let me know what you think
