We are testing a new service providing 14-day XMLTV format guide data to customers who are paying for the HDHomeRun guide.

API: https://api.hdhomerun.com/api/xmltv?DeviceAuth=xxx

DeviceAuth comes from the HDHomeRun unit - for coding you get it from discover but for testing the easiest is to get it from
http://<ip of hdhomerun>/discover.json
If you have more than one HDHomeRun unit pull the DeviceAuth from each and concatenate them together.

The API will return the set of all channels across HDHomeRun units. For example if you have a HDHomeRun unit for cable and a HDHomeRun unit for antenna the API will return 14-day guide for all cable and antenna channels combined.

The API works in all supported countries.

Is this service also available in EUR?

We don't have all EU countries but it is available for the EU countries our app has guide data for.

Launch the hdhomerun app... the guide data is the same, just delivered differently, so if you get guide data there, have a modern tuner, and you subscribe to the dvr service, the xml version of the guide is available.
