    Version 0.0.0.4

    I have uploaded another version.

    VERSION 0.0.0.4

    As normal, if you have changed your HTML templates, graphics etc, make sure you back them up first.

    mainmenu.htm has changed in this version - added button for Keyword Search. searchmain.htm is a new file.

    I found something I missed with the radio channels and I have fixed that - It worked on my data as expected.

    If displayed, all radio stations are listed to the right of the TV channels - otherwise not displayed.

    I have added a basic keyword search that searches the title and description of programs in the current EPG database (not recorded programs or scheduled programs) for the phrase you enter.

    I plan to add to this with Genre, Classification, Channel dropdowns etc so that you can for example show all of the G rated Comedies or all Crime Dramas etc.

    Feedback on the search, and what you would like to see in it would be very useful

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. szAppName : MPWebInt.exe     szAppVer : 0.0.0.2     szModName : unknown    
    3. szModVer : 0.0.0.0     offset : 00000011    
    4.  

    I am still trying to get to the bottom of this one - it would seem that the database connection is not closing properly but I am not sure why.

    Re-starting the service after the error has cleared will get the web server running again. It only happens after a query has been executed. If you start the service, then stop it without doing anything on the Web Server it is fine. The service connects to the database on startup... anyway, I will find it.

    Regards
    Kev

    Version 0.0.0.5

    ... another new version!

    Sorry, but I was on a roll!

    Added Genre, Classification and Channel dropdowns to the search page.

    At present you will need to use the back arrow on your browser to go from the search results back to the search page.

    The HTML for searchmain.htm changes from version 0.0.0.4 and guidemain.htm changes from version 0.0.0.3 so take care if you have made changes to any html pages. Back them up before installing and add in the changed lines.

    Please throw some feedback my way on the search page...

    Regards
    Kev

    New Version 0.0.0.6

    Sorry, another one..

    Now added a drop down on the program guide page to show all dates with EPG data available and jump to that date.

    Changes to HTML for guidemain.htm so back up first if you have changed any pages

    Regards
    Kev

    Can't keep up with it, 3rd install today, (0.0.0.6) :)

    One comment I have so far about the search is that even though the radio programs are now hidden under the EPG, as per config, the radio columns do show up in the search results.

    Also just noticed if I just select a Channel in the search (any channel other than ALL) I just get a blank page. This is with all other options empty/at default from opening the page.

    I just tested 0.0.0.6

    - radio programs aren't shown anymore if i uncheck the correlative option
    - the crash when checking / unchecking this option and restarting the server still occurs
    - everything else works like a charm :)

    I would like to place another feature request:
    Is it possible to add a 24 hour time format ? I think some people (including me :p) prefer this format to "am / pm".

    Just uploaded version 0.0.0.7

    On the appearance tab there is a new input for Time Format. Just Right click it to see the options available.

    24 hour time would be hh:nn

    Hi Big_Kev,

    great project, thanks. A few things I noticed with 0.0.0.7 (first version I tried):

    1. The program guide only shows the programs from the current system time and later but not earlier. Right now it is 10pm here and the first program displayed is from 10pm.

    2. Clicking on next in the program guide opens a blank page with a HTTP 500 "Internal Servererror" Same happens when going to another date in the program guide. Tried with Firefox, IE6 and IE7. Only the same day is displayed properly.

    3. The channels displayed are the ones MP Server found and named during the channel scan. Those are wrong mostly (at least in my case). Would it be possible to display the "display names" instead ?

    Thanks for your work !

    Question/New Version 0.0.0.8 (Sorry 3 posts merged)

    Could you give me some more info?

    Which version of TV Engine are you using?

    Are you using MSSQL or MySQL database?

    I can not reproduce those issues... the "500" error would indicate a crash in an SQL query and the blank page would indicate a rouge query that has not terminated but has not crashed.

    There is possibly some sort of database mis-match here???

    Regards
    Kev


    New Version 0.0.0.8

    Fixes for searches with the Channel option set.

    Dont show radio or shift radio to the right in search results.

    Series Recordings should now show in the main guide (like every day at this time etc...)

    More options for changing date/time formats - see configuration pages.

    As usual, if you have changed any of the HTML pages, back them up before running this install, as they will be overwritten.

    Regards
    Kev

    Not Yet...

    The Web Interface is independent of the MP client, so if the TV Engine database structure has not changed, then it will work just fine.

    Regards
    Kev
