       tv_grab_fr_kazer [--config-file FILE]
                        [--days N] [--offset N] [--channel xmltvid,xmltvid,...]
                        [--output FILE] [--quiet] [--debug]

DESCRIPTION

       Output TV and listings in XMLTV format for many stations available in France. This program
       consumes the EPG service offering from Kazer at <http://www.kazer.org/>.  See TODO
       INSERTLINKHERE for their terms of service. (automatic translation suggests it's free for
       personal use, verification appreciated)

       First you must register an account at kazer.org and choose which stations you want to
       receive.

       Then run tv_grab_fr_kazer --configure to setup the grabber with your userhash and maybe
       filter the channels. (in case you feed multiple consumers with data from one account, like
       using different configurations for tv cable and iptv channels)

       After these two steps running tv_grab_fr_kazer with no arguments will get a listings for
       the stations you chose for all available days including today.

       ATTENTION: The downloaded data is cached for one hour, so if you add channels to your
       account it can take up to one hour until they are returned from the grabber. You can
       remove the downloaded guide to force an immediate refresh by deleting the guide from the
       supplementry file cache. On Unix like system it is by default at
       ~/.xmltv/supplement/tvguide.zip?u=<your userhash>.

OPTIONS

       --configure Prompt for which stations to download and write the configuration file.

       Note that due to the format of the source data, tv_grab_fr_kazer always downloads data for
       all channels that have been selected on kazer.org.  Removing channels from the
       configuration in order to speed up downloads or reduce data transfer will therefore not
       work.

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

       --output FILE When grabbing, write output to FILE rather than standard output.

       --days N When grabbing, grab N days rather than everything available.

       --offset N Start grabbing at today + N days.

       Note that due to the format of the source data, tv_grab_fr_kazer always downloads data for
       all available days and then filters for days specified with --days and --offset.
       Specifying --days and/or --offset in order to speed up downloads or reduce data transfer
       will therefore not work.

       --quiet Only print error-messages on STDERR.

       --debug Provide more information on progress to stderr to help in debugging.

       --list-channels    Output a list of all channels that data is available
                             for. The list is in xmltv-format.

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

       --version Show the version of the grabber.

       --help Print a help message and exit.

ERROR HANDLING

       If the grabber fails to download data from kazer.org, it will print an errormessage to
       STDERR and then exit with a status code of 1 to indicate that the data is missing.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       The environment variable HOME can be set to change where configuration files are stored.
       All configuration is stored in $HOME/.xmltv/. On Windows, it might be necessary to set
       HOME to a path without spaces in it.
