UK Cinema Listings V1.0

Dunno how many British GBPVR users are out there but getting inspiration from the Theatre Listings plugin I decided to write one that would show film times / info for Cinemas in the UK.

At the moment it displays times and limited film info but I plan to expand on this. Any bugs / suggestions feel free to post or PM me.

Note
It's called V1.0 but it has only been tested with 2 GBVPR setups so I would consider it a beta version.

Hope this helps :)

1) Copy the dll into C:\Program Files\devnz\gbpvr\plugins

2) and the xml file to C:\Program Files\devnz\gbpvr\skin\Blue\UKCinemaListings (you have to make the folder yourself).

3) and then go into the gbpvr config app to enable the plugin and set the ciniema number.

Great plugin Mr McBainUK! Works fine for me, on my PC and on my MVP.

One tiny buglet - "Pride & Prejudice" shows as "Pride & Prejudice". Can you detect and convert HTML entities?

Seems greedy to ask for more, but you did ask! :) Here's my wishlist:
- Multiple cinemas
- More than one day (the web page for my cinema shows times for today and tomorrow)
- PageUp/PageDown
- Links to trailers when they exist. (See this thread (http://forums.gbpvr.com/showthread.php?t=10223).)

Many thanks

I've noticed this also, on my todo list


PageUp/PageDown, Multiple cinemas,
So are these


More than one day (the web page for my cinema shows times for today and tomorrow)
The main listings shows todays times, if you press enter on a film it will show the rest.
Just a point, it currently shows today and tommorow as on Friday the listings will be updated (cinemas work on a Friday to Thursday week)


Links to trailers when they exist.
This looks cool, will look into it

Excellent plugin, works great both on PC and MVP using v94.13. You did ask for suggestions to here's my wishlist :- :D

You already mentioned multiple cinema support, perhaps add the cinema name and the booking tel no if you can grab it from the cinema info page, i.e. www.britinfo.net/T/1004108.htm page ?

Trailers - as someone else mentioned.

Thanks again, great work.
