XMLTV version with OSMC

I’m trying to setup a fresh install of OSMC/TVHeadend that will pull metadata from SchedulesDirect.

When installing xmltv using apt-get I install 0.5.63-2, but this version does not include the grabber required for SchedulesDirect (tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite).

That makes sense when you look here: Debian -- Details of package xmltv in jessie

How can I use the latest version from here: Debian -- Details of package xmltv in stretch


Probably not the answer you want to hear, but I suggest either waiting for stretch (which the development team are working on now, and hopefully will come soon), or instead check out zap2xml:

You might possibly need the newest version of the sqlite utility from Github:
