hello,

Can some one provide some information on why I can not get episode information to be outputted into an xml file?
I have set the output tab, format of episode tag to `valid season and episode numbers only` and tried `full crid` but i get no information as below - 

`valid season and episode numbers only` gives this 
<programme start="20130531190000 +0100" stop="20130531193000 +0100" channel="10060">

the uk-freesat.ini with `numerical part of crid` is giving me both season and episode numbers by the looks of it -

so it must be the uk-sky.ini which is not working correctly?

all the numbers that are supposed to be for episode are the same pretty much and so its just not working right, some help on this would be greatly appreciated.

I have processed both FreeSat and Sky UK data with the Format of episode tag set to Valid season and episode numbers only and they both produce episode-num tags with valid formats and numbers.

FreeSat only provide episode numbers so the season is always zero while Sky provide season and episode numbers but the season number is not always present. Not all programmes have the information present though so just load your xmltv file up in say Notepad and search for episode-num.

Both broadcasters include the information as part of the programme description and EPG Collector extracts it from there. Unless you set the option to stop it, it is removed from the description for Sky data.

The CRID option is of no real use unless you have some other software that can make use of it once it is in the xmltv file. BSEPG has some special code in it to use the BSEPG format created by EPG Collector.
