    I want to start a thread for the improvement of WebEPG site support.

    So for those not using WebEPG or if your site is there but not complete, post here and we can help you get your site supported.

    I have created a small util to help with the hardest part of the grabber config, the template.

    This is a MUST-HAVE, thank James, I will investigate more data sources when I have some time.


    Edit : I nice feature would be to import some already written template to check if they are still valid when a problem occurs :D

    Hi James. This sounds interesting, but to be honest I have no idea of what has changed, and how to utilize this. So;

    Is there any documentation (change log or similar) that state the changes?

    I can't figure out how to use the application posted earlier in this thread.. could you make a small how-to, or pre-fill the text-fields with working data?

    I've noticed that mediaportal now supports episode-management, and thus I assume episode-tags are now supported? Earlier (birth of WebEpg) you helped me out with removing "episode"-information, "re-run" - information, and "texted" - information. I use dagbladet.no grabber for Norway.

    The code you implemented in sol.no grabber looks like this:

    <Searches>
    <Search match="\(R\)" feild="#REPEAT" remove="true" />
    <Search match="\([t]+\)" feild="#SUBTITLES" remove="true" />
    <Search match=" \([0-9]{1,4}[\):]" feild="#EPNUM" remove="true" />
    <Search match="\x06[0-9]{1,4}\)" feild="#EPTOTAL" remove="true" />
    </Searches>

    Aiming to strip information from "Cheers (77) (R)"
    and make it look simply like this: "Cheers" (In order to make use of record always on ---)

    another example: "Cheers (77: 199) (R) (t)"

    I would love webepg and mediaportal to interprete the above example as:

    Program: "Cheers"
    Episode number: "77"
    Total episodes: "199"
    Rerun: "true" (do/do not record reruns, or only reruns (check box when scheduling))
    (t) : (remove information)

    However I can't find any documentation on how this works, or if it works.
    So the question is: Does episode info scraping, and removal of obsolete information work? If so how?

    Thanks for your work so far it is truly welcome.

    Hi Lyxalig,

    I have fixed this, now the template is:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2.       <Searches>
    3.         <Search match="\(R\)" field="#REPEAT" remove="true" />
    4.         <Search match="\([t]+\)" field="#SUBTITLES" remove="true" />
    5.         <Search match=" \([0-9]{1,3}[:][0-9]{0,3}\)" field="#EPNUMB" remove="true" />
    6.       </Searches>
    7.  
    and the xmltv output:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2.   <programme start="20061109135000" stop="20061109142000" channel="dr1@dr.dk">
    3.     <title>Hvad er det værd?</title>
    4.     <desc>Serie hvor ulike gjenstander prisvurderes.</desc>
    5.     <category>Livsstil</category>
    6.     <episode-num>13</episode-num>
    7.     <previously-shown />
    8.   </programme>
    9.  
    The episode number is parsed the total number of episodes isn't (but I don't think that so important).

    I currently have no place to put subtitles, but this is also maybe not so important?

    This is now in the SVN.

    Cheers,

    /James
