The XMLTV ID is required for mapping channels to channel listing services.


For Zap2it, you can find the ID using the following:

  1. Log in to your Zap2it account.
  2. Click the "Modify" button next to one of your lineups. This should bring you to a page allowing you to select and un-select channels.
  3. View the html source of the page (Firefox: top menu "View"->"Page Source").
  4. Search in the source for the callsign of the channel you are interested in.
  5. Above the callsign, you will see text like this: <LABEL FOR="000001145000000000300">. The XMLTVID is 5 digits long, ending at the 10th digit. In this example, the ID would be 11450.


Digital ATSC channels can be found on HDTVMagazine using the following:

  1. Go to http://www.hdtvmagazine.com
  2. Enter the call letters of your station in the search box.
  3. Hit enter to submit the search
  4. View the search results and scan to the last line, marked in green.
  5. The results will include a URL like this: hdtvmagazine.com/programming/guide-station.php?id=20292
  6. The ID is the last 5 digits.
