504 gateway time-out at script/zap2xml.pl line 365

I have been running EPG Collector 4.3FP 23 since April 2020 without an error but starting yesterday, I have the error note above and the script is running in a loop without terminating.
I created a new batch file, thinking the old one has corrupted but it still does the same thing.

I noticed in the last successful batch, there was a change to channel number, 46.3 which is normally Bounce changed to 26.3. This caused WMC to record comedy series instead movies which I manually selected off the guide. Guide was showing movie titles etc but recording was of different programs.

Research on line tell me Gateway time-out is related to server connectivity.
So i tried the following elimination:
1. Rolled back my system to an earlier time
2. Login to Zap2It from another device, I got the TV line up.
3. Created a new Zap2It profile
4. Run another extraction.

Still time out code!

I'm out of idea!
Anyone has this error and a solution.

TIA

I think you'll get more helpful responses from the maker of epg collector here.

EDIT: Oops, sorry. You might be using epg collector, but the question is really about zap2xml. Has Zap2it finally found a way to block it?

Wild guess here but has zap2it made any changes to their allowed cypher suites?

Possible!
However I have not seen this error reported elsewhere.
I even tried to run the extract from a completely different PC on a different network/wifi outside of my home, but still get the same error code!
But getting TV guide from Zap2It on their website is OK!
Not sure what to do next.

My HTPC is set to acquire guide data using zap2xml.exe and the java file xmltv-to-mxf. This is a scheduled task and usually runs without me seeing it.

However, I did happen to catch it running last Sunday (11/21) and I saw the same error. Although the error was repeating, I don't think it was in a loop and the process did terminate.
My normal update takes about 30 minutes, this one took at least an hour.
I spot checked the guide data into future days until it ran out and everything looked normal. So the gateway timeout errors did not affect the guide data.
I have a friend that I set up with the same software and I had him watch the process on his HTPC tonight. He did not see and gateway time-out errors.

Maybe this is just some internet connection problems with the Zap2it website? I plan to watch the process at the next scheduled run and see if the errors occur again.

Thanks for replying.
Whatever issue there was at Zap2It, it has now cleared!
Would you mind sharing your scheduled task set up?
I was never able to get it to run even though I made sure to run it in admin mode without user password etc.
The task simply didn't run!
TIA
