Arrow Plugin: SageTV Catchup

SageTV Catchup 0.3.3 (beta)

Plugin to integrate UK catchup TV sources into SageTV for UK users.

Requires separate installation of get_iplayer.

Pioneers who installed the original 0.2.7 beta are advised to:
  • Completely uninstall 0.2.7 first
  • Check in the SageTV server directory that the subdirectory sagetvcatchup has completely gone

The support thread is here

0.3.3 - Second beta release.

Online services menu:
  • Recording and catalog status are now a further click away as cannot stop SageTV caching downloads at top level
  • Reverse order sorting of categories and episodes by orig air date
  • Added a search podcast to allow programme search from SageTV
  • Moved show icons to programme level from episode level to facilitate better meta-data visibility
  • Improved visibility of meta-data at episode level
  • Added a "New" category for programmes added since the last catalog
  • Added a "Favourite" category for programmes which are also SageTV favourites
  • Added recording status messages to recordings podcast including percent done
  • Added grouping of recordings by outcome e.g. in progress, failed, completed
  • Made improvements to catalog status reporting including time taken to catalog
  • Catalog errors are now grouped by message

  • Add "Watch and Keep mode" as SageTV only lets you record if fully downloaded.
  • Made recording and streaming much more resilient to different outcomes

SageTV plugin:
  • Add enable/disable of individual sources in plugin configuration screen.
  • Allow catchup server port and recording directory to be configured from SageTV

  • Reduce cataloging time to 10 mins - previously took hours
  • Remove the catchup server host and port from podcast URLs from the catalog
  • Add a catalog start hour so cataloging always starts at a set hour of day and occurs every X hours
  • Only start cataloging on startup if the catalog looks sparse otherwise wait to scheduled time
  • Deal with duplicate programme entries in iplayer
  • Made catalog downloads interruptable so that cataloging can be more quickly terminated
  • Made catalog downloads retry on failure

Web page:
  • Add Type column to category web page
  • Add Type column to programmes web page
  • Add error summary to catalog error web page
  • Control links in web server home page redirect back to home page rather than present message web page
  • Home page now shows active thread count and heap stats
  • Home page now shows growing size of catalog in progress and size of last catalog

  • Moved the catchup server to its own JVM to limit the plugins impact on SageTV classpath
  • Set up RMI servers in plugin and the now separate server for better control and feedback
  • Add seed properties for 32bit windows e.g. windows XP
  • Increased maximum heap size to 500Mb

Media sources:
  • Fix Demand5 meta data (but demand5 no longer works possibly due to encryption)
  • Fix Iplayer series and episode number parsing errors

0.2.7 - First beta release.

Contains Iplayer catalog, watch and record to TV recordings
