Perfect! That was the last thing I needed before a release and works as expected.

Thank you, Nick!

Re: XMLTV guide data

Added series-id tag (non-standard) and star-rating tag (standard). Nick I was actually grabbing star ratings from the movie description since it is embedded at the end of it. Added my code to get it from the new star-rating element and it fell flat. Star-rating isn't compliant to the dtd... should ...

Re: XMLTV guide data

I was creating schema from the XMLTV DTD, which states: Each channel has one id attribute, which must be unique Which is why I opted to include all channel numbers a station was broadcast on in the <display-name> elements of a single <channel> for EPG123... it was my compromise on file size and com...

Re: XMLTV guide data

There's been a little discussion on this already. I must say, I am fundamentally against creating unique IDs for each channel and instead use the unique ID for the station assigned to the channel. This makes the XMLTV file more efficient for simply not repeating the same schedule 2, 3, or even 4 tim...

Re: XMLTV guide data

I do have an old document from TMS laying out the schema for their XTVD documents. It has a slew of genres/categories in it for reference. I'm sure over the years some new ones have been added, but it will probably give you a 90% answer. If you're not aware, TMS was bought/merged/whatever with Grace...

Re: XMLTV guide data

The prefixes are “MV” for movies, “SH” for shows, “EP” for episodes, and “SP” for sports. I have never seen dd_progid defined for the XMLTV, but it has a...

Re: XMLTV guide data

@nickk I only have 2 remaining requests. 1) can you include the entityType and subType values from Gracenote in the categories. This way I can properly identify sporting events. 2) related to above is a Live indicator. Though not part of the DTD, it has become somewhat accepted to include <live /> t...

Re: XMLTV guide data

Example (of what you service may need to return, one set of tuner numbers per group): <channel id="US16604.hdhomerun.com"> <display-name>JTV</display-name> <display-name>1037 JTV</display-name> <display-name>1037</display-name> <icon src="https://img.hdhomerun.com/channels/US16604.png" width="360" ...
