tvtv EPG display customization

Hi,

I have a question, is it possible to custom the way the EPG information are displayed when looking at the details of a show.

I use tvtv and only a part of the show description, the year of production and the category are displayed. I want to have the full description, the actors and other metadata. Also, on the tvtv website a picture of the show is displayed, I don't know if this picture (or picture url) is included in the tvtv streams but if it is the case, I want to display it.

So, is it possible to customize the way EPG info are displayed, and where can I find a specification of the tvtv stream ?

Thanks

If TVTV was sending that information to Sage, then it would be displayed! TVTV seem give different information to Sage than they have on their website (I have also seen missing epsiode names).
You should report this as a bug to Sage so that they can pass it on to TVTV.

It is either not sent (most likely) or it is not in the information that is accessible through the Sage API, so cannot be displayed.

This is likely to be a trade secret...

I don't know, because actors name are not displayed, but if I search a movie by actor name, SageTV find it ...

I can understand they don't embed pictures into the stream, but they should at most provide an URL where we can get the image from SageTV.

If they don't want to publish the specs, they should expose a Java object that hold all the loaded data.

Thanks for the reply Nielm :-)

I will try to mail SageTV and tvtv to get more info, who's know maybe they will answer ;-)
