MythTV / Remove HD flag on SD channels
« on: September 06, 2010, 10:36:34 AM »
Hey Guys,

I recently upgraded my TV to a HD compatible box, and at the same time enabled the HD channels on MythTV. I wanted to record only in HD when the program supports it. This should be able to be done with the "Prioritize HD Quality" setting in MythTV. However, the XMLTV guide from IceTV shows the HD flag even on SD channels negating the usefulness of this script.

So I wrote the below Perl program. I run it just after the listings are downloaded from IceTV.

It removes the HD flag from all SD channels, so Myth will only record on the HD channels if actually broadcast in HD.

I hope it helps someone!

Download from here:

Remember to rename _pl to .pl and make the file executable.


IceTV EPG Content / Melbourne data doesn't show Vic Elections

Hi all,

I'm using the Melbourne ICE guide, and noticed today that it doesn't show the Victorian election programs on either the ABC or Channel 9.

Is this a glitch, or something you're still working on?
