This project uses a few simple scripts to convert data grabbed from RedButton download (rb-download) into XMLTV format that MythTV uses for program guide listings.
Code repo moved to github.
- Supported attributes: title, description, start and stop times, freeview rating, teletext, metadata categories, and HDTV/Dolby flags
- Remapping support for XMLTV channel ID and icons
- Requires only bash, gawk, and sed (rb-download needed to grab data)
- Designed for New Zealand Freeview DVB-T
- Extra MHEG stream tools
This is an awesomely useful piece of software and the author still cares! Amongst other goodness, the latest update works around up stupid tv3 listings which are using the same crids for tv3 and tv3 plus one. Found one bug. Start/End time are out by one hour on the two days of the year when daylight savings starts or finishes. Corrected tiny bug in the start/end time calculations. Also the terrestrial EPG BASE is epgdtt but the satellite is epgdth ... weird.
