Hello all I have a question about the epg information in vdr.
digitenne does a good job with epg info. They deliver two weeks epg but i have one problem. They probably don't send genre information. I use xbmc svn tree pvr-testing. This is still work in progress but it works great. The pvr client does patch streamdev for stuff like teletext which works ok. The problem i have is when showing the epg guide which fetches the info from the epg.data file from vdr. The epg.data file contains the folowing: == E 70 1251180000 600 50 10 T NOS Journaal met gebarentolk S Serie. e == XBMC can show genre in colors and probably in the future you can select a specific genre but now the genre information is not available(probably not in the stream). So i thought using xmltv2vdr which can extend the already known data. The xml file i get contains the folowing == <programme start="20090823110500 +0200" stop="20090823120000 +0200" channel="25" > <title lang="nl">True life</title> <desc lang="nl">Reportageserie met opmerkelijke real-life verhalen over jonge mensen en de subculturen waartoe zij behoren.</desc> <category>Educational</category> </programme> == What for me is important is the peace category which contains the genre information. So i tried to import that data with the xmltv2vdr script which you can download from the vdr site. When i run the script with the modified channels.conf and the xml file it puts the new data in the epg data file but not the genre information. So i tried to do it manualy with telnet and added the genre info like this: telnet localhost 2001 PUTE C T-8720-2212-25 Animal Planet;Digitenne E 10140 1251016200 1800 0 T Wildlife SOS D Reportageserie Geen detailgegevens beschikbaar. G Sports (Genre) e c . = But i get an error 451 Error while processing EPG data Is there a possibility to add the G parameter or is it something else? I'm not a real programmer but i'm familiar with linux for about ten years so thats not a problem. Can someone shed some light? I'm out of ideas ;( Will try the latest version also tomorrow.
