Arrow STV Import: Read & Write Metadata files for Default STV 5/6 (v2.2.9 18/Feb./2010)

This module provides the ability to display additional information in "view video/recording detail" for Imported videos and DVD rips (by reading and creating .my files) and for downloading IMDB coverart on the Default STV. Also it can create .properties file and save IMDB data directly to the SageTV database (wiz.bin). Using code stolen from a variety of source, this import provides function previously seen in the Germsage and Cayars STV's. Thanks to flachbar for his automatic creation and cleanup function and his import library.

Features of this version are:
- Works on version 5 & 6
- Reads .my files. Can be enabled/disabled
- Can read .my files from a global directory
- Automatic creation of .my and/or .properties files for all recordings. Can be enabled/disabled but requires restart to activate.
- Automatic cleanup of orphan .my files. Can be enabled/disabled but requires restart to activate.
- Create .my and/or .properties files for individual recording. Can be enabled/disabled
- Uses the same properties as SageMC so switching between the Default STV and SageMC will keep the same common functions enabled/disabled.
- Ability to create .my and/or .properties file from any past or future airing. Saves the files into the path specified in Options/Customize. (Defaults to recordings directory)
- Bulk .my and/or .properties file creation. Creates files for all past/future Airings for a title in the Sage database.
- Save data from IMDB to .my and/or properties file
- Optional Download of IMDB image
- Cleans up old .my Reading import if installed
- Cleans up old .my RW import if installed
Version 6 only features
- Save data from IMDB to wiz.bin
- Edit metadata in wiz.bin
- Import data from .my file into wiz.bin

Installation is a 3/4 step process.
Step 1. Unzip into SageTV maintaining the directories. (The df_sageutils.jar from the zip file needs to be in the JARS directory)
Step 2. Restart Sage so it will pick up the jar.
Step 3. Load the IMDB Search Interface import (if you want to save IMDB data)
Step 4. Load the RW My Files import

Prerequisites: For saving IMDB data Nielm's IMDB Search Interface must be installed before this import.
If using TiKi's FanArt 2.3 or higher install TiKi's FanArt first.
If using Phoenix FanArt for Default STV, install Phoenix FanArt for Default STV first.

The current version is RW Metadata 2.2.9 (18 February 2010) download from here.

_______________________________________________________________

Additional Information

For anyone following progress in the A Collection of Minor Tweaks for the Default STV thread, this thread is home now and it has been removed from over there.

Background:

.my files are an old text format file from the old MYHTPC (precursor to Meedio) days. They are basically a tagged format file which a variety of applications can read.

By using these files, you can have similar information in the Video Detail for Imported Videos that you normally get in Sage Recordings. The file is created with the same name as the video file, with a .my extension.

This import provides for the creation and reading of .my files. The data can be sourced from current EPG entries or, IMDB data.

A simple example of the contents of a .my file:
Code:
title=Man, Moment, Machine
TVEpisode=Werner Von Braun and the V2 Rocket
TVOverview=In 1942, Hitler demands a silent, deadly weapon that is capable of completely destroying London in a matter of days.

I am unable to get this to work.

It saves the .my file but when I try to display video details it will not display correctly.
It displays title and released twice but no overview or cast.
Example for 16 Blocks:
Title:
Movies\Drama\16 Blocks
Released:
2006
Title:
Movies\Drama\16 Blocks
Released:
2006
File:
[M:\Movies\Drama\16 Blocks.mp4]

Format:
[H.264 720x304@24fps, AAC@48khz Stereo eng]

Filesize: 530.09 MB

Which version of Sage and the import are you running?
Is the data in the .my file?
Can you try a clean install of just the import and see if that makes a difference.

I do need to do some work on reading of the IMDB data in files in the test version, but you shouldn't be getting duplicates.

overview=In 1942, Hitler demands a silent, deadly weapon that is capable of completely destroying London in a matter of days.
TVStartDate=30/11/06
TVStartTime=22:30
TVEndTime=23:30
TVFile=W:\My Sage\ManMomentMachine-WernerVonBraunandtheV2Rocket-524101-0.mpg
TVFirstRun=true
TVFavorite=true
TVManual=false
TVLibrary=false
TVGenre=TV Series
TVChannelNumber=53
TVChannelName=The History Channel
TVChannelDescription=The History Channel
TVExternalID=SH1IDnDh0000
This import provides for the creation and reading of .my files. The data can be sourced from current EPG entries or, in the test version, IMDB data.

I'm sure someone else could provide a better explanation.

Posted a new test version: RW My Files 1.5 beta 3 (3 Dec 2006) download from here
I think this version is now complete, so any feedback would be appreciated

Features/Changes:
(1.5b2)
- Save data from IMDB to .my file
- Read more tags in .my file
(1.5b3)
- Optional Download of IMDB image
- Cleans up old .my Reading import if installed
- Fixed writing of Tagline
- Fixed non-clearing of filename attribute

Prerequisites: For saving IMDB data Nielm's IMDB Search Interface must be installed before this import.

So installation would be
Step 1. Unzip into SageTV maintaining the directories. (The df_sageutils.jar from the zip file needs to be in the JARS directory)
Step 2. Restart Sage so it will pick up the jar.
Step 3. Load the IMDB Search Interface import
Step 4. Load the RW My Files import

Does anyone know of any apps that will automagically generate .my files for this use outside of Sage? Specifically for TV Episode data...since doing those searches via IMDB is tedious at best and the information is many times lacking.

Does this work in SageMC? Or does it already have this tool in it?

Thanks

No it doesn't work in SageMC.

SageMC does .my file reading
The automatic .my file creation and cleanup was stolen from SageMC.
SageMC does saving from IMDB into the Sage database, but if you use that on Imported Videos it breaks sorting in the version 6 Default STV, so I went with writing to .my files from IMDB.
The bulk creation and creation from past and future airings I don't think are in SageMC.

Actually they are ... You can generate .my files for any group of past or future airings (on the 'Other Showings' screen). But your STVi might have some more options for this, at some point I'll have to catch up ...

I find www.tv.com to be much better for TV episodes. IMDB has a lot of series with blank synopsis or has the Series description for most episodes.
What i did to create .my files for series that were not in the Sage database was go to a show episode guide Like here and hit the print episode guide button. then edit out all the extra stuff and then Use Word's find/replace feature to change the tags to fit this stvi. Finally I cut, paste the info into a blank txt file and save it as the video filename. Star Trek TNG took me about 1/2 hour to do the whole series.

But if someone can find a way to automate this..... that would be great.
But please automate it using tv.com for TV series

Ditto for me too. I'd be very greatfull for a IMDB style import, that gave access to TV.com's rich data for show's episodes. Of course I'd really want that support/compatibility(like IMDB) eventually added to this great import.

Dirk, I didn't know that, I could have just stolen that too, along with the rest.

It's easy, as soon as flachbar writes it for SageMC, I'll steal it

A couple of questions regarding your new version....

-Optional download of imdb impage....where do you configure that you want it to automatically download the image?
-Does it download the image to the same place as the .my file?
-Is the image given the same hame as the .my file?

This could be very cool if it gives the image the samge name as the .my file but with a .jpg extension. My Roku will display the image for the show then automatically. Is this correct?

Thanks for doing this. I was just going to as about the image from imdb as well but you beat me to it (if I am understanding how it works correctly).

Darin, in Setup/Detailed Setup/Customize/.my File Options there are options for enabling creating .my files from IMDB and another option for downloading the images. Both are enabled by default.

You'll end up with a video file, a .my file and a .jpg named the same as the video file and stored in the same directory.

There is basic 2 ways it creates .my files. Either from the Sage database, or from IMDB data. To save from IMDB, you need to do an IMDB Search from the Video Options panel and Make a .my file from there.

Thanks for the reply. Got it working very nice. Not sure if it is possible, but it would be perfect if it could automatically create the image just like it automatically creates the .my file. But that would be too much to ask.

Thanks again.

Darin
