That URL doesn't seem to lead to a site where one can download mc2xml. Some further cursory searches just led to a lot of dead ends.-skwire (October 08, 2015, 02:10 PM)
As tomos said the links are found further down the page. Here's another link from the same page: MC2XML.
I wrote one [a frontend to xmltv files] a long time ago. It still sort of works, in some browsers, and it's really easy to try.
Basically extract my archive, stick your xml file in the same directory, name it "tv.xml" and open up "tv.html" in a web browser.-ayryq (October 08, 2015, 03:02 PM)
That's a quick and dirty script. I tried it and was pleasantly surprised.
- options to select favourite channels and show only them. I've already got a .chl file to include only selected channels, but it would be preferable to do it with GUI.
- option to automatically download the xml data on demand/startup would also be welcome.
- now it shows only the channel number and not the channel name. Option to show the channel name will be appreciated
Update: I changed the option in mc2xml to show the channel name rather than channel number first and now the listing shows channel name.
I've got few more ideas, but maybe they are more relevant for an .exe version rather than a script?
For the present I am using your script. I wonder why it never showed in my search. Thanks for coding it.
Having said this, if anybody would take up the project to create a standalone .exe/.ahk version I am willing to beta test it.
TV Scheduler Pro - I've used a commercial fork of this software for the last 5+ years and it has never once failed.
You can set it to automatically grab the XML for you, and if you have any DVB-T/S devices connected (using standard Windows BDA drivers), you can set it to automatically record based on various match criteria.-4wd (October 08, 2015, 05:59 PM)
Alas, I don't have any device attached to the PC and the auto scan option (if no device is attached) is only available for the following countries, and it is not available for my country
Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Will keep an eye on it.
