    I am running the tv_grab_be python script to get the XMLTV tvguide.
    Out of the box, this script takes the program "Info" to put it in the "desc" field of tvguide.xml, it gives the generic information.

    "Info" is generic description, but nothing is done with the Content information ("Inhoud" or "Contenu"). Nevertheless it is interesting because it is there that the full description resides!

    So, which argument may I use to get both visible in my TV guide :?:

    Thx in advance, Zby-)

    You can change the script: if you analyse it you will see that it is already planned to import content, so just change info with inhoud...

    Marteko,

    Thx for your reply, I have no issue with the script itself, but more about what's interpreted in XMLTV (and after also by MP)? Is the "Info" variable implemented? I don't think so, I tried some combinations, without real success! :cry:

    Thx for your assistance, Henry-)
