TV Movie programme for XMLTV, version 1.2

Filed under: tvmovieThiton at 19:24

I've recently taken the time to scan the remaining channel numbers for additional channels like Premiere and Comedy Central, to write autoconf and automake files for this grabber to ease installation, and to write a standard XMLTV grabber script. All in all, this grabber can now be used like a standard XMLTV grabber.

TV Movie programme for XMLTV, version 1.1

Filed under: tvmovieThiton at 01:26

There have been several bugs in the TV Movie grabber script, most prominently broken daylight saving time support. Thanks everyone for pointing these out. I have improved the script in several respects and packaged these changes for the version 1.1. Changes are:

  • Fixed daylight saving time
  • Fixed XML declaration for ISO-8859-1
  • Fixed original title for movies (was incorrectly parsed as sub-title)
  • Fixed star-rating (incorrectly displayed as rating)
  • Added output of FSK rating
  • Added extended category output
  • Added country parsing and canonification
  • Reduced channel list in XML file to actually present channels
  • Added Mono/Stereo/Dolby categorization
  • Added black/white parsing
  • Cleanup in code.

P.S.: In the code published before the 21st of April a terribly stupid bug prevents proper date/time parsing. Fixed it.

TV Movie programme for XMLTV

Recently, the TV Movie paper has changed its publication format for electronic programme data to match its new ClickFinder software. Unfortunately, a Linux version of this software is still missing; to remedy this, I have written a converter for these data to XMLTV and a script automating the EPG data acquisition.

I donate this script to the public. However, since the TV Movie paper probably finances its Click-Finder program with advertisements[1], please make sure you visit their web page regularily or find some other while to make this service worth their while.

UPDATE: Version 1.2 of this script is available.
