View Full Version : UK xmltv (bleb) EPG problem

Hi Sub -- I wonder if you could take a look at this problem? I'm using the XMLTV listings from Bleb for UK terrestrial TV, and the bleb.org site says "the last programme on each day will not have an end time or duration" and so the last show on one particular channel (if you search the XML its called "itv nightscreen") screws up the TV guide. The problem occurs when navigating the TV Guide with the remote, moving up or down into the offending channel, whereas if you click on it with the mouse it seems okay. The problem is, that show appears to run 'forever' and gets mixed up with other shows on the same channel. I've zipped the data.xml file and attached it, any chance you could look at fixing it?

It seems that the show simply has no end time specified in the XML, I guess you could put a sanity-check in for this kind of thing, maybe?

cheers

If you use the built in bleb EPG plugin, rather than this bleb2xmltv utility you're running, then it handles this correctly.

Alternatively you could switch to using the radio times XMLTV util.

Ahhh.... I had no idea there was a bleb plugin, I took a look at the plugins section of the wiki... but can't see it. Can you give me an idea where to look for it?

it's built in - go to the config, catpure sources, edit your device, select epg source and select bleb (UK) from the options. You can then edit the Bleb settings and untick those you do not want.
