       Output TV listings for several channels available in Hungary or
       Romania.	The grabber relies on parsing HTML so it might stop working at
       any time.

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

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

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

       --gui GUITYPE Use this option to	enable a graphical interface to	be
       used.  OPTION may be 'Tk', or left blank	for the	best available choice.
       Additional allowed values of OPTION are 'Term' for normal terminal
       output (default)	and 'TermNoProgressBar'	to disable the use of

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

       --days N	Grab N days. The default is eight.

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

       --quiet Suppress	the progress messages normally written to standard

       --slow Enables long strategy run: publishes only	some (vital)
       information on the actual listing pages,	the rest is shown in a
       separate	popup window. If you'd like to parse the data from these
       popups as well, supply this flag. But consider that the grab process
       takes much longer when doing so,	since many more	web pages have to be

       --get-full-description This is quite like --slow	but doesn't always
       download	data from popup	window.	Instead	this is	only requested if
       description in overview is truncated.

       --list-channels Write output giving <channel> elements for every
       channel available (ignoring the config file), but no programmes.

       --capabilities Show which capabilities the grabber supports. For	more
       information, see	<>

       --version Show the version of the grabber.

       --icons and --local-icons DIRECTORY get the URL for channel-logos
       together	with the channel-list. With --icons specified the
       logos(images) will be not fetched just their URL	(http://...)  will be
       written in the output XML. If called with --local-icons,	the generated
       URL (file://...)	will point to the the local directory DIRECTORY	and
       all channel logos will be grabbed and saved under this place.  Use
       --no-fetch-icons	option to disable the icon fetching.  Note: icon
       fetching	currently works	for Hungary and	Romania	only.

       --max-desc-length LENGTH	can be used to maximize	the length of the
       grabbed program long description. This can be useful if you have	a
       viewer program (using this xmltv	output), which can not be display
       userfriendly the	description if it is more then LENGTH character.

       --help Print a help message and exit.

       Heavily patched and earlier maintained by Stefan	siegl
       <>, reworked	and now	maintained by Balazs Molnar

       The data	source does not	include	full channels information and the
       channels	are identified by short	names rather than the RFC2838 form
       recommended by the XMLTV	DTD.
