    Hi! I'm working on a grabber for the new Virgilio tv guide and I have a partially working solution. I'll post it hoping it can be useful to someone with better skills than me in programming grabbers!

    This version works quite fine but only for one day: I've got some problem in letting the grabber scrape for more days. The fact is that the site uses this form to decide what day you are looking for ".html?giorno=[WEEKDAY]": unfortunat...at there's no solution to this problem.... :(

    re: [Italy] Grabber's URL changed: alice -> virgilio

    Hi all,
    I've made a little modification to the grabber code to allow it to handle sites like the new virgilio, where the names of the days are without accents (eg: lunedi insted of lunedí).
    I've also made a virgilio grabber.
    I'm unable to test the patch (and the grabber, of course) 'cause I'm having some problems building the TV service but it's really simple and I hope error-proof (at least the code change, the grabber may be totally wrong ;) )

    Hope it helps
    Alessandro

    Once a couple of people confirm it to be working, I'll add to SVN.

    BTW, I think you'll get wider testing attaching xml instead of patch.

    The problem is that to work it requires a change in the code of the grabber so the xml alone can't work :(

    There's a way for a NON programmer to do that?

    Hi,
    I'll test the patch too, but only if the above is feasible and someone can explain how

    Hi Alessandro,

    Simone asked me to take a look at your patch. Although the patch itself seems pretty safe, at this stage it is not possible to apply code changes for anything other than bug fixing due to feature freeze. I will however add this in mantis, so that it will be included after 1.1.0 is out. Since, AFAIK there is an alternative grabber (EPGdownloader.exe from HTPCItalia), I think it should not be a problem until then.

    I hope you understand why it is important to respect feature freeze even for these small changes, and thank you for your effort.

    Arion

    Edit: Mantis issue added: 0002629: Allow weekday names to be configured in the grabber file - MediaPortal Bugtracker
