Hi pwriesnik

Some thoughts on this, which perhaps Rob may be able to complement/correct:

When using televisiontunes as scraper, you are telling TVTunes to fetch everything via this scraper, regardless of being movies or tvshows. Therefore, if you are fetching for movies I am afraid you won't get satisfactory results. This is actually the only scraper whose search isn't up to TvTunes at all! It happens on the website's side and the results aren't 'treated' or 'filtered'. This because it is a website tailor-made only for TV shows' themes, hence the correct result is most of the time the first entry on the retrieved list, which accounts for a high level of success when set to automatic download. The other scrapers are actually at another level using a very elaborated search and filtering method, becoming incredibly, and sometimes, overwhelmingly efficient with respect to finding themes for either movies or tv shows.

The latter becomes evident in that the way in which the entries are displayed and offered to the users, and becomes tremendously useful when interacting manually, as wgstarks points. It gives you a lot of power search even for those really rare and complicated titles with HD sound qualities that are way above the ones offered by televisiontunes.com.

They retrieve themes and display the multiple entries sorted by 4 different levels of filtering criteria; now, for each group there is no sorting by level of accuracy, which means that whilst most of the entries for that group could be highly accurate, its first entry may not be. Since automatic download fetches the first entry on the first group displayed, then the level of accuracy could jump randomly back and forth from high to low, rendering automatic download highly unreliable.

I hope that clarifies some of the reasons as to why TvTunes is designed with user interaction in mind for general operation (not specialised to just one scraper, televisiontunes.com in this case)

The priorities in which the filtered results are shown on the entries list are:
priority 1 = * (full match: most accurate match in relation to TvTunes' pre-defined soundtrack music tags/appendixes)
priority 2 = ~ (album only match: only the album name (not the artist) contains one of the search terms)
priority 3 = + (title only match: only the track title contains one of the search terms)
priority 4 = (everything else: all which was filtered out)

Best,

capfuturo

good evening, i have done the semi silly thing of making helix alpha 4 my live build now purely because the playback has been flawless with it through some trials and errors, i have got most of the skin i use working, but this add-on appears to be broken in helix and was wondering if you had the time to maybe have a wee look at it?


i think this might be the error let me know if i can supply anything more
Code:

beautifulsoup is installed but that could also be the problem

thanks in advance

Should be pulled in:

Code:
<addon id="script.tvtunes" name="TvTunes" version="4.4.9" provider-name="robwebset">
    <requires>
        <import addon="xbmc.python" version="2.1.0"/>
        <import addon="script.module.simplejson" version="2.0.10"/>
        <import addon="script.module.beautifulsoup" version="3.2.1"/>
        <import addon="script.module.requests" version="1.1.0"/>
    </requires>

An according to:

http://xbmc.org/kodi-14-0-helix-alpha-4/

Quote:Add-ons

As for this Helix release, so far there have only been small things changed in regards to add-ons. So we are happy to say that almost all add-ons that worked in Gotham, will also work in Helix. There are of course some exceptions, however this should be only be a minimal amount.

That's the problem with using Alphas! You may want to post on the Helix forum section.

I don't usually support alphas - too many ghost that waste time trying to track them down!

Unfortunately with Helix alpha there are a few things broken but these are minor . TV Tunes is one of them... You Dont realise though how much you come to depend on a script for the flawless experience and when even one part of it isnt working .. it just becomes glaringly obvious ! well patiently waiting Smile

Hi iorifly,

Could you please let us know:

1) Skin (does you skin support TvTunes)
2) XBMC/Helix version
3) Do you have this error if you switch to Confluence skin?
4) Full log (with TvTunes debug turned on please) would be helpful too

Best,

capfuturo

Thanks for trying to help me.

Here we go:

1) - Skin - [MOD] 1080XF MB3 - Helix Edition (http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=204184)
2) Helix - 14.0 Alpha 4 git: 2014-09-30-501ad2d-dirty
3) I can not test at the confluence ... he calls the TvTuner?
4) System Mac mini - Yosemite

tested in confluence, entering shows tv nothing happens ...

iorifly: Helix is not yet fully supported on TvTunes, or vice-versa. You can actually read our fellow XBMCians stating so on the posts above yours.

For the Confluence bit, have you actually turned on TvTunes in the skin settings under configuration? You must if you want TvTunes functionality in Confluence (at least some functionality, namely theme play as reported by helix users)

Best,

capfuturo

When using Aeon Nox 5.1.x theme, TVTune is not playing the theme song. Does anyone know what I need to enable in this skin to make TVTunes work properly? Thanks in advance for the help.

Edit: I should add the theme.mp3 is in the main TV folder. I also see in the TVTunes wiki regarding: 1080i / custom_1119_ExtrasDialog.xml - can anyone explain how/what this is/use. Do I just download and replace?

Good morning HuddaDudda: The skin has a selector that allows you to toggle on/off TvTunes' functionality. Look for it in skin settings->Extras->Enable TvTunes integration.

You can add themes in different ways, and not only by placing the theme (or having TvTunes fetch it for you) into the main movie or TvShow folder, and the wiki is self-explanatory on that aspect. You can configure which way to use in TvTunes's configuration pane.

The reference to custom_1119_ExtrasDialog.xml indicates that that file and not the standard DialogVideoInfo.xml, contains the skin instructions for TvTunes to work properly. You don't have to download or alter naything, unless you want to mod the skin default support for TvTunes to your liking.

I hope that helps and you can play your themes now.

Best,

capfuturo
