Just did another revision update removed some randomness from that last one. Gee, I wish I could test this before uploading, but if I did, then I'd loose data.

Sorry, haven't tested the new version yet. I've hammer-out a proof of concept RSS builder. It uses the DailyLogs and for now, just makes an entry for each line and makes that line a title.
-Is this something that will be useful?
-If we want to implement this can failure info be added as part of these reports?
-Links are required in RSS feeds... what would these items link to?
Anyway, let me know and I can do some work on limiting the number of days that are included in the RSS and using the data at hand in a better way.
Here's part of a sample output. Please note that I didn't to anything to include or control chronology but that's pretty easy to add later.

First off, I'm feeling a bit off right now, so if this does not make sense, then please let me know.
1. Yes this would be very useful. It should be possible to use the new RSS tool with XBMC to change the RSS feed to the one generated by mythicalLibrarian.
2. Yes This would be great to add, assuming the list can be made to rotate efficiently.
numberofentries=grep -c "</item>" /thelist
cat /thelist itemdelete=grep -m1 <item>
and then cat /thelist with a tr -d itemdelete ... ... ... grep match.
3. I was looking at that.. Recognized episodes could go to
I have no idea about shows, but Episodes:
I'll try to think of something for shows. They will be comming after I finish the easy installer.

ok, due to the XBMC crash, we have lost alot of data in this thread. If anyone recalls anything important, please post it up.
Easy installation instructions:

yikes... I got pretty much erased...
SVN 256 is stable; There was a guy who was asking if he should update his MythTV to the latest 0.22+fixes I believe...

mythicalLibrarian is tested using MythTV's head SVN revision. There was a stable past 256. Generic programming is now supported. Sports Events are supported.
Full list of functionality:
mythicalLibrarian has been tested and is running on my computer with MythTV head revision.

Like djroketboy, none of my posts survived the lightning strike, either
Can you give a bit more detail on how the Sports Events are now supported? I am using svn 256 and I see that there is a "Cycling" subdirectory in my "Episodes" directory, but when I point XBMC to the "Cycling" Subdirectory and mark it as type=TV shows, it shows "zero episodes" in the TV Shows area of XBMC.
Keep in mind that I am also relatively new to XBMC so I may be missing something on that end.

sports events should be handled using season (year) and episode (MonthDay). Can you post a debug log on your cycling dir? There should be a tvshow.nfo file in the folder as well as a nfo file that specifies the information for XBMC .
- GregoryK - 2010-03-18 01:44
Upon some further investigation, it looks like the last time mythicalLibrarian tagged a Sports Event, it did in fact place it into an Episodes rather than Showings directory. So the earlier S0E0 files in my /Showings/Cycling subdirectory are probably artifacts of earlier versions of the script.
Is there an easy way to re-run just those files? Can I do a --scan mpg on the files that have been renamed to Cycling S0E0 [...] without messing up mythtv's database?
- outleradam - 2010-03-18 03:22
for now all episodes which are tagged with the sports event label can be redone with --doover. I would like some feed back before I remove that --doover option from categoric handling files..
I need to know it works before they get dumped into showings. For now they are still handled pretty much the same way as a episode which did not get scraped and was handled like a generic show. Until I can get confirmation that everything works, it will stay the same way. Once I'm sure everything works I want to move sports events into the /showings folder and remove their --doover option.
