XBMC SageTv Script

CORRECTION: This is not a plugin. It is a script!!!

First off let me start with the fact that I've been using Python for all of a week so far. That said I tried to update the XBMC script for SageTV. You can get to this update at the link below. It should work with version v2.22 of Nielm's webserver. Is started this thread so that you could post issues with these scripts.

The sagetv.py script does screen scrapes of the webserver pages and should mostly work, but will be slow as it must parse through the entire web page each time it looks for something.

sagetv-xml.py uses the XML output from the webserver and so searching is faster, but I haven't been able to figure it out all the old mappings yet. It should work for the most part though.

http://forums.sagetv.com/forums/down...do=file&id=274

Suggestions are welcome, but please keep in mind I can only check this forum in my spare time which is limited

The don't like piece should again work in the xml version. Also I added a convert feature to the program details menu. This allows you to convert the quality based on the current options in the webserver. This is useful as Xboxes can't display 1080i and have trouble with 720p. There is currently no way to check the progress though to know when its done. I will see if that can be added soon.

Any chance you might roll this over to a XBMC video plugin instead of script as jhh has started (you call it a plugin in the title, but it is really a script isn't it?)? I'd be happy to lend a hand where I can. I'm happy to see the old script evolve into something better. My last script I posted should have worked for the latest webserver. What did you change?

EDIT:
I just tried the -xml version and it starts then just dies. I'll take a look in the XBMC log to see if I can get any clue as to why.

XBMC Sage TV Script

Yes its just a script not a plugin. Sorry for the incorrect title. If you already have one that does this that is great. I searched for several days and could not find one that was current. Where is yours posted so I can take a look? As for the error log its because its finding a non allowable character in the string. If I change the reader to force a str then it should work.

Sorry forgot to include in the last post. I will check into the video plugin also. I want to get the script limping along well enough for now and then work on something nicer

One question I have though is that the webserver seems to randomly pick extra shows to record. Each day there are one or two extra recorded shows that are not in the timeslots as my favorites and are not ones I've picked. Just curious if the issue is me or others as well.

It's hosted at XBMCscripts.com which can be downloaded and installed straight from within xbmc if you have the xbmc scripts.com script. I'm sure you saw the thread that jhh and I kept running after coolwave's departure.

I don't know of the webserver being able to randomly pick shows to record. Do you have intelligent recording on in Sage?

Unfortunately I haven't been able to get to XBMCscripts.com. I dunno if its blocked or if its down. That came up as the top result in Google for this, but since I couldn't get to it the only other script I could find was Coolwave's script.

I just tried the -xml version again and I get the same error. The strange thing is I can not find any character that seems odd in the .xml file. I attached it here for you to see.

I was able to reproduce it. I got the same strange error with an actor on my side. Since its not part of the expected ascii set it doesn't show up in the logs The issue is that I'm just grabbing everything. I'll apply a filter to only grab ascii characters and it should correct it. Hopefully that will be tomorrow sometime. Thanks for all the assistance.

I think it should be solved now. I added encodnig for utf-8 in the toxml reading. Grid Guide is still under construction but the other pieces should work.

It opened this time, although the results on the "myTV" screen are a bit off.

old script:

I just did some more testing. In the 'recorded TV' screen, sorting by title does not initially work. I have to select a recording then go back to the 'recorded TV' screen for the sorting to kick in.

All in all using the xml does work faster than the full page scrapes.

Cool. Thanks for the feedback. The sorting issue should be better now with the latest upload for the main page and search/recordings. One possible slowdown with xml is that it returns everything. I'll have to see if that becomes an issue. I've also been toying with if there should be a date ascending and date descending sort instead of just date.

That would be great.

The sorting by Title does work in the recording screens. I did find 2 more issues though...sorry

The schedule is ordered in reverse.


Details of a show from the schedule list do not populate properly.

Hi guys,

I'm interested in this script, but I'm having trouble figuring out what this does. Does this allow me to view SageTV recordings in XBox Media Center?

How does this script work? Do I need to have SageTV Web Server set up, and this script scrapes those web pages to populate XBMC, or what?

Sorry, I'm a noob to all of this, but I would love to find a way to get SageTV recordings to display on my XBox. I tried checking out XBMCscripts.com as well, and the page doesn't load. I think the site is dead or something

Oh, I just checked out Coolwave's site:
http://coolwave6.googlepages.com/home

He's got all the install information listed there. I'm going to work on setting this up. Thanks guys!
