Dear all,

  Having been dissatisfied with performance and features of xmltv2vdr
(too slow, no credits/category information in I have created
a new script (based on AWK), that can be found in the attachment.

  If you want to try it, put your channels.conf.xmltv in one folder
with these two scripts, and then run cat *.xml | ./xmltv2epg > epg.

  My mileage: 54MB XML -> 18MB EPG in 44 minuties (xmltv2vdr used to
take 9 hours).

Looks good, but what does the command line look like?

Well, do a "cat *.xml | ./xmltv2epg > epg" if you have many separate xml files.
Otherwise, ./xmltv2epg file.xml > epg should suffice.

Sorry chaps to go back to an old thread..

How would you send epg back into vdr? I know you could just use it directly from vdradmin, but I would like to append the xmltv listings to data already downloaded.

Should I just cat >> - or do I need to upload it using an svdr command?

Nowadays I use this script to upload it to the VDR:
{ echo -ne "${clre:+clre\n}"
  echo "quit"
} | netcat localhost 2001

for x in $@; do
  echo $x >/dev/stderr
  echo "pute"
  cat $x | ./epgfix
  echo "."
  echo "quit"
} | netcat localhost 2001

epgfix is to truncate the lines to VDR's 10k limit (for some reason,
10240-1 failed for me once, hence -2:-):
#!/usr/bin/awk -f
{print substr($0,1,10*1024-2)}

run it with "clre=1 ./putepg file1 file2 ..." to clear VDR's EPG first.
