just gives a discription of movie but not title of movie coming on.

Use tvtv.ca and tvtv.us but have a problem. Both work fine for tvshows and episodes coming on. But when come to a movie,it shows a discription of the movie but not the title of the movie, it just says Movie. What line do I put in the site.ini to fix the problem. So grabs the title of the movie coming on besides the discription. If already a fix I can't find it and I don't see it in documentation.

Goran, Them two parts worked like a charm for all movies on all stations in tvtv.us and tvtv.ca. Thanks for you help.
Now if I can just find a way to get the siteids and the xmltvid's then could do local channels. Use to be able to grab that stuff from tvguide and a few others with firebug but now firefox(even though mozilla bought out firebug their inspect element in developer is not no where near the same.) and chrome won't let you add firebug anymore and all the other element inspectors don't show that information. Only thing I could find with them is the first part of the siteid not the second part.
If you know what the original author of the tvtv's use to get that stuff would be nice to know.

Goran, What you gave me for the movies worked great, Thanks bud. Now my second post was about creating my own guide from tvtv.am with my own locals or other cities. I thought I knew how to do it been doing it for years with tvguide. I went to tvtv.am and put in the zip for Pittsburgh Pa 15201. I then grab the lu9305 from the local broadcast, went in picked the channel number and channel name.
Then backed out and went to comcast and grabbed the lu92362 for pittsburgh city and did the same as before. Did it three more times with two more service Directv and Cox and did the same. The fifth one is another comcast one cause the had to pittsburgh city. Anyways here is all five I tested with.
** KDKA-TV CBS2-1
** WTAJ-TV CBS10
** WPGH-TV FOX53
** WEPA-CD COZI22
** WTAJ-TV CBS10
When run all come up with no show on index page error.

I don't know what I am doing wrong,its like the channel number after the lu is wrong. like 2-1,53,22,10 so them number are not the same as the site uses. I used the inspect element for the New York,NY Directtv that has the 36212D and couldn't find the channel numbers they are useing. Still trying to fiqure it out.
And thanks again for the movie titles missing that part worked fine. It shows the title of the movie and discription instead of movie and discription. Anyways if you see something I am doing wrong with the stuff above let me know.

he's looking for pitsburg,pa locals not salt lake city,ut.

it would help if he disabled his channel.xml creation section,i'm sure it would make a huge difference.

of course the shows(details pages) are the problem.the index page is a single request(per day) so that wont cause you to get blocked.its grabbing all the details pages that cause it(many requests).

Thanks Blackbear199 changing from station to channel fixed it. Now just got to make a channel list for like 100 channels. But thats the way I want to go. And thanks again Goran that first part about the movies fixed my other problem. Thanks again.

Hi all, Just a quick noobish question i may have here. I've noticed a couple channels in the website lineup that aren't in the .xml file. Is there a way to find the actual channel site id of a channel using inspect page or something?

Thanks in advance

Channel id change quite often, you may need to run a new channel list. Using 2.1.7 or above you can set in your config file update mode "c" which will create a new channel list. Please note that this setting will work for siteini that do not require previous action (create first a list of channel by postal-code/region/provider) It will work with siteini that have only one block ** @auto_xml_channel_start and ** @auto_xml_channel_end. Please check http://www.webgrabplus.com/documentation/configuration/webgrabconfigxml

Hi,

For some reason index_title.modify {replace("Movie")|'index_title'|'index_subtitle'} doesn't work for me.

When I debug the replace operation, looks like everything is fine:


[ Debug ] Debugging information SiteIni
[ Debug ] Element: INDEX_TITLE
[ Debug ] Modify
[ Debug ] command & arguments : replace(debug )("Movie")
[ Debug ] Expression-1 : 'index_title'
[ Debug ] Expression-2 : 'index_subtitle'
[ Debug ] Element value before operation:
[ Debug ] Movie
[ Debug ] String composer result for Expression-1 :
[ Debug ] Expression-1 expanded : Movie
[ Debug ] String composer result for Expression-2 :
[ Debug ] Expression-2 expanded : The Mule
[ Debug ] Element value after operation:
[ Debug ] The Mule
[ Info ]
[ Debug ]
[ Debug ] 15 shows in 1 channels
[ Debug ] 0 updated shows
[ Debug ] 15 new shows added

But XML doesn't give the desired output (notice that sub-title already been removed, as per index_subtitle.modify {remove} but the title isn't updated with the correct one.


<programme start="20190914220000 +0000" stop="20190915000000 +0000" channel="HBO"
<title lang="en">Movie</title>
<desc lang="en">An old man who's broke and estranged from his family becomes a drug mule for a Mexican cartel in an attempt to make ends meet, but when his past mistakes start to weigh on his heart he tries to make things right before the DEA catches up with him.</desc>
...
</programme>

Anything else I can debug here? Thanks guys. :-)

I know this is an older post, but i'm also having the same issue where the Movie name is in the "sub-title" and the "title" says "Movie". I see mention of adding
index_title.modify {replace("Movie")|'index_title'|'index_subtitle'}
to the ini, but not sure where to add and tried adding it in different sections of the ini, but nothing is working.
here's an example of a movie listing in the xml

Quote:

Movie
The Intern
A 70-year-old widower, bored with retirement, takes an internship at a successful Brooklyn startup, where he soon proves his worth to his young boss.(c)
Movies
Comedy

TV14

Also, i can't for the life of me figure out to properly quote in the forum. haha. It removed elements from my xml.

is this tvtv.us ? which channel ?
If you replace index_title also make sure if title is grabbed to do the same for details:

index_title.modify {replace("Movie")|'index_title'|'index_subtitle'}
index_subtitle.modify {remove('index_title')|'index_subtitle'}

if you enabled details add also:

title.modify {replace("Movie")|'title'|'subtitle'}
subtitle.modify {remove('title')|'subtitle'}

Hey Mat, yes tvtv.us
Your solution worked, however 2 questions:
1. I'm getting a "(?)" at the end of the title. Here's an example
Anaconda (?)
What can i adjust in the ini to make take out the "(?)"?

2. I would love to get a "New" indicator for a first time showing for TV shows. Is there a way for me to add that to the tvtv.us ini to grab "New" indicators?

I'm attaching my ini in case i did something incorrectly which is why i'm maybe getting the "(?)"

Thanks so much for the help

Sorry Mat, i'm testing AMC Eastern Feed

Trying to paste the channel line from the Webgrab config on this response, but don't know how to paste without it taking out the "channel update=i" etc...

AMC - Eastern Feed

I'm uploading the webgrab results also, so you can see the results of the grab.

Hi Matt, ive looked in there and the latest file date is 18/01/2020, which still needs me to add the lines you mentioned above, and still gives the question mark.

Can you let me know if the version you refer to is somewhere in particular?

Oh, that's different since its a different Country. I took a chance and used the tvtv.us and edited the Canada one similiarly. Seems to have fixed it. Try it out

Just tested @Revision 2 - [18/01/2020] (siteini.pack) and don't see question mark. Can you check your tvtv.ca revision ?

Strange, the latest siteini for ca was giving me the "Movie" title everywhere.

Adding your lines above fixed that but added the question mark.

I grabbed the tvtv.us siteini as suggested by jhr1948, and changed the address inside to tvtv.ca, and now everything works fine......

Thanks heaps!
