rlevis:
Kellysu: Sky and Freeview epg data is available here updated daily.
http://epgnz.000a.biz/

Yes, and it has the program category information, but not the program classification/rating, eg, PGR, AO available using FreeviewToXMLTV.

I'm wanting both the category and classification.  Can the person compiling epgnz.000a.biz please add classification into the data if possible.  eg.

="nz">


      >PGR>

Do you suppose the "<!-- content id="0x3B" user="0x01"   -->

" tags are relevant to the program rating. That would be a simple find and replace? Anyone got the guff on this?

I've had a look through the xml file and unfortunately it appears to be related to the category and not the rating.  0x30 seems to be Entertainment.

I've noticed some of the categories are incorrect.  TV1 News appears with a "Entertainment" category whereas the Maori Channel news appears with a "News" category as it should be.  Bugger!

I am grateful that the basic sources are available and it seems off shore so a takedown might be a bit harder to execute. It means I can move from xmltvnz to this source and with some editing (in batch) obtain a regular epg source again.

I originally had something along the same lines in my blog post - PVRs aren't the easiest to setup and geeks are an enterprising bunch, so I predicted an "underground" EPG - user/password protected, which Sky would not have any access to.

All Sky are doing is pissing off their geek subscribers.

Hi there,

I have fixed Leith Bade's Freeview MHEG5 to XML extraction tool. I have only tested it on Windows XP SP2 (I haven't tested it on Unix either) with a Nova-T 500 HD dual tuner. I am using Media Portal so it would be good if someone would like to test it on whatever setup they have.

I haven't got a site to upload the source files to so if anybody is keen to give it a go and provide some feedback, let me know and I will send you a zip file.

If all goes well I will try and get in touch with Leith so I can contribute my source code to his project as I don't really want to start a new project. Anybody know how to get in touch with him?

Thanks
Gus.

allsorts. may I ask if it extracts the program rating (PGR,AO,G etc) and also the program quality, HD, SD?

Is by any chance the Category also available such as Kids, News, etc?

Cheers.

Hey rlevis,

The rating and quality are supported but I'm not sure about the category. I will have a look into that. See the following snippet from the generated xml file:

<programme
    start="20100408203000 +1200"
    stop="20100408222000 +1200"
    channel="1200.dvb.guide">
    <title>Criminal Minds</title>
    <desc>The BAU team hunt for a suspect who is copying the murders of famous past serial killers.</desc>
    <subtitles />
    <rating>
      <value>AO</value>
    </rating>
    <video>
      <quality>HDTV</quality>
    </video>
  </programme>


Cheers
Gus

Perhaps freeview haven't included the category in the MHEG5 data.  Can you please check on that.  If not then it could be worth an email compaign asking freeview for it.

The MHEG5 data broadcast only has the program name, start and end time and and the names of some jpg files from which you can deduce the parental rating, whether its HD and whether it has subtitles. There is some header info preceeding the programs that identifies the station as well.

In the last couple of weeks they have also included TV Anytime references so each program has a program and a series reference. Not sure if the series reference is accurate though. Knowing TVNZ probably not.

Thanks for the info Steve,

Just noticed on another post you are busy building a MHEG5 EPG data grabber, which is cool. Is it far away? I have sent Leith Bade an email about contributing to his project, have you considered that?

Cheers
Gus

It's pretty well finished. Rusty is doing some initial testing just to start the ball rolling and make sure it works on a machine other than mine and then it can be spread around
for some more testing.

It does both EIT and MHEG data (EIT on any frequency).

Want to do some testing? What's your configuration?

Steve
