Title: New XML API
Post by: DeltaMikeCharlie on June 12, 2015, 06:37:58 AM
Some time ago, I was told by an IceTV staff member that a new XML API was being developed.

Is this still happening?

Is there a target date for when this API will be available to developers?

I would like to write a TAP to add ICE functionality to my non-ICE Topfield PVR.

I don't know about the XML API but writing a TAP, or any app, that not only downloads the guide data but also downloads the schedule list was possible when we had the My Week RSS feed.

When the website was updated the handy My Week RSS Feed vanished.

Obviously there would not have been any two way syncing (no timer status updates sent to your account) but being able to download your week's recording list in a text format was a godsend.

I don't know about the XML API...
I do know now.

We're almost finished with the XML API but need a few more months to "harden" its robustness, so that developers can use it without affecting other users.

If you need an early adopter to do some testing, let me know.

"Real soon now" was what ICE said to me 8 years ago. See http://forum.icetv.com.au/iceforum/smart-recording-website-and-general-questions/35/plea-to-ice-for-a-generic-remote-device/859/.

I'd be happy with a "My Week" option for webget for starters

Will the new and improved XML feed (when it arrives) have a field for a unique event ID like the pimp feed has at the moment?  AFAIK, the current XML feed lacks such a field at the moment.
