Additional meta-data.
« on: November 12, 2012, 10:40:41 PM »
We're looking at including series and episode numbering in the current XMLTV feed. Please let me know if there's anything else within the XMLTV spec that would be beneficial.

Luke, that's great news.  I take it you'll be following the recommended XMLTV system="xmltv_ns", or at least another scheme that's recognized by MythTV and friends?

I looked at the XMLTV spec.  Everything else I can think that's useful you already include in the xmltv feed.

This is now provided, where it exists in our database. We are working on increasing the coverage of the series/episode numbering across all of our series/episodes.

Awesome.  (5.14. is episode 15 of season 6.  Like all good computer scientists they count from zero.)
