Spoke to soon - the BBC does seem to have La Liga scores - but not in JSON format. It would be possible to get them by scraping the relevant page but I'd need to think how I fit this alongside the current scores.

Steve,

How are you trying to instal it? It works fine on Eden beta3.

Have you tried unzipping it to your addons folder?

Nice addon!
Have you considered making scrapping a generic process, so that you (or anyone else) can write a new scrapper and use it with it (as long as it provide the necessary data in a given structure, e.g. team_a, team_b, score_a, score_b, time...etc). This way you don't need to do it for each person, rather they can contribute back to the addon. Of course after doing that you might consider renaming it to Live Football Scores, or maybe later Live Sport Scores Wink

I have very much considered it, but given my status as a very amateur coder it's way beyond my skills I'm afraid.

I went with the BBC site as it provide the results in a format that was really easy for me to parse.

Hi great script, works great.

Just had a couple of future feature requests; would it be possible to show who scored and what time (of the game)? I guess that would largely depend on what is shown on the BBC website, but if poss, I think that would be a great addition.

Probably more tricky, but thought an audible notification would be good of a score change - what would be great, would be a momentarily reduction of the volume of what ever is currently playing, followed by a GOOAALL!!! similar to Soccer Saturday on Virgin Radio a few years ago (not sure if the program is still going)

Just ideas, great script though, cheers

I'm not going to have the time to do this - I'm using the BBC site as it gives me a very simple JSON format which is easy to parse.

However, the BBC have updated their site to show scores from more leagues, just European I think - it may be possible to get these to work, but at the moment they're not included in the JSON feeds that the script relies on.

Restart xbmc and it should show up in your addons list. Run it. it will then show you the list of leagues/competitions that are playing today. Select the ones you want and hit start.
