XMLTV (General) / Re: Better Descriptions Possible?

It'd be great if you included the "repeat" description as well so we know if it's a first run or not.
Yep, we have that one already actually, take a look at the "broadcast-type" entity.  It can have values for BW, CC, HD, WS, and R.  However, we're in the middle of changing the XML format to be more like the XMLTV format for those types of fields, so it'll soon be changing.  More details in the Announcements forum as soon as it's ready for testing.

Oops, looks like it got encoded, and then just to be safe, it was encoded a second time ;-)

Thanks for pointing it out, we'll get it fixed.

Wow, strange.  Can you look at the headers of the emails, and see if they all have the same Date: string?  I'm wondering if the forum sent 34 emails or if the server's mail system queued up 34 copies of the same email.

So, to the request - is there a definitive (even if evolving) set of categories or category hierachy behind the categories in the iceTV XMLTV guide?  If so, can this be published?
Hi BJ,

Sure, here's the current list of categories we're using -- although as you said, it's evolving as we need new ones, but we don't add new ones very often lately:

Action
Adventure
Animation
Arts & Culture
Biography
Business & Finance
Cartoon
Children
Comedy
Cooking
Crime
Cult
Current Affairs
Documentary
Drama
Education
Entertainment
Family
Fantasy
Game Show
Horror
Infotainment
Lifestyle
Murder
Music
Mystery
Nature
News
Real Life
Religion
Romance
Sci-Fi
Science & Tech
Shopping
Sitcom
Soap Opera
Sport
Talk Show
Thriller
Travel
Variety
War
Weather
Western

We're not currently using multiple category levels, so everything's flat.  But a particular program can have more than one category associated with it.  For example:

<programme start="20050202150000 +1100" stop="20050202153000 +1100" channel="5">
   <title lang="en">Huey's Cooking Adventures</title>
   <category lang="en">Cooking</category>
   <category lang="en">Lifestyle</category>
   [...]
</programme>

Secondly, is it possible to utilise the fact that the schema supports multiple categories to have a major and minor category included in the XMLTV data - say Movie, Adventure, for example?  This would also allow MOVIE: to be removed from the programme title.
We don't currently support that, but we can look into it and see what the possibilities are.

Are you able to convert our category list as it is today to something that can work with MCE?

Thanks,
Russell
