    Thanks all for the confirmation. Seems the RT source has a whole bunch of films without any <category> element at all - totally confused RT_FilmFix.

    I've removed the attachment I uploaded a few posts back and updated post #1 of this thread.

    For those who downloaded that first fix, I've slightly tweaked it further so you may want to download again from post #1 just for completeness sake. The difference is mostly cosmetic but functionality is the same.

    Cheers,
    Brian

    Something changed again?

    Hi,

    I've been using Brians fix since the new year without a problem - until yesterday when I noticed that my Movie guide was getting empty.

    Not sure when something changes - but looking back through my logs, Jennifer's Body on Channel 4 was recognised as a film (and updated by RT_FilmFix) for last Saturday's (I think it was Saturday - 24th) showing. However there is a showing next Sat 31st that is not updated.

    What seemed to happen - was up to this weekend all the films were correctly updated, anything after has not (with the exception of about 8 films). So it would suggest that something has been changed in the raw xml from RT?? I was surprised not to see anything reported here (like at the beginning of the month - you guys had noticed the issue and fixed it before I'd even noticed....

    Thanks for any feedback guys.

    I was just wondering why gaps had started appearing in my EPG, such as robin hood this evening on ch5 at 9pm that is not in the EPG_EVENT table.

    gEd - it's not so much gaps for me - it's more like I only have 8 movies in my movie guide!

    Damn - it's a daylight savings issue.

    To re-write the xmltv file, I match on start time / channel / title etc. and XMLTV GUI has started writing the times with a +0100 offset which is throwing off RT_Filmfix.

    I'll get a new version uploaded ASAP - hopefully later on tonight.

    Cheers,
    Brian

    I've uploaded a new version available in the first post of this thread - please re-read the instructions for installation as a reminder of where the individual files need to go.

    FIXED: Problem with matching start time of films due to change to BST

    I've also added an updated channels.dat file which needs to be copied into the folder where XMLTV GUI is installed (e.g., C:\Program Files\XMLTV GUI).

    NOTE: The channels.dat file isn't part of the fix but I thought I'd update it anyway as there have been a few changes to it recently.

    Cheers,
    Brian

    Hi Bri - I wasn't in last night, I'll pick up the build tonight and give it a whirl and report back.

    I emailed the XmlTVGui guy ages ago about this going in the grabber,
