hi all,
i have found an rss feed for australian tv which would make a better datasource for mytv.

i am new to python scripting, so please bear with me a little.

what i am trying to do is import the channelid and name tags from http://www.d1.com.au/d1xmltv....risbane

any ideas?

thanks,
kahooli

kahooli,

i'd be more than happy to have ago at using that rss feed instead of the html scraping method used at present.
i just need to get v1.08 out the door first, so if you can wait a few days ... ?

cheers link thou.

it was easier than i thought, so it'll now be in v1.08

provided programme descriptions are a bit poor thou.

setup:
select provider and region in datasource_ausrss.py

one thing i'm unsure of is the start/stop datetime provided for each prog.
eg 20050929130000+1000

is that indicating your gmt+10 hours ? even if it is, i'm unsure if i should be adding that offset to the time ?
in its present form, its not added, but let me know if the prog start times are wrong because of this.

i just need to double check this code, then v1.08 *should* be uploaded to xbmcscripts tonight.

it is indicating that the time mentioned before it is gmt+10 (ie already had +10 included in it), not gmt+0.

example the channel ten news on a weekday is at 5pm and finishes at 6pm...
