View Full Version : Importing XMLTV into other PVRs

14-11-2007, 12:14 AM
Muddling around, i'v got a terminal line to grab my chosen xmltv data. This data however is pronounced invalid when i try to import it into the tube (http://www.equinux.com/us/products/tubestick/latestfeatures.html). The XML I get by using the line;
curl http://user:pass@minnie.tuhs.org/tivo-bin/xmlguide.pl > /tv.xml is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<tv generator-info-name="Wktivoguide v5" generator-info-url="http://minnie.tuhs.org/tivo-bin/xmlguide.pl">
<programme start="20071112153000" stop="20071112163000" channel="ABC-WA">
<title>Road Agent</title>
<desc>Cowboys discover bandits trying to bankrupt ranchers by forcing them to pay tolls on certain trails.</desc>
<director>Lesley Selander</director>
<actor>Tim Holt</actor>
<actor>Noreen Nash</actor>
<actor>Mauritz Hugo</actor>
<actor>Dorothy Patrick</actor>

and xmltv states the code should be:

<tv generator-info-name="tv_grab_uk">
<channel id="bbc2.bbc.co.uk">
<display-name lang="en">BBC2</display-name>
<channel id="channel4.com">
<display-name lang="en">Channel 4</display-name>

<programme channel="bbc2.bbc.co.uk" start="20010829000500 +0100">

could someone let me know if my XMLTV code is valid?
