Question about movie ratings

Hello,

Not sure where this needs to be posted, since I'm not sure which component is/was providing the data.

The problem is I don't remember exactly when the data was there, and when it stopped showing up.

When browsing the movie details, there used to be a "/out of 5" movie rating for most movies. I like this, because it at least lets me avoid those total dogs (1 out of 5). However, that rating doesn't show up anymore. Not sure if it was the old EPG that pushed the rating and now SD doesn't? Or was it a feature of V7 and now it's gone in V9. Either way, would it be possible to get that feature turned back on, or at least give a pointer as to where it used to live so I can investigate?

Thanks,

Mark

We are importing the rating data. It is converted into a **+ format per what happened with the old EPG data.

* = 1
+ = 0.5

You should see these ratings if you're running the latest version of SageTV. I can't recall what version added these back.

I think there is something different about the way this data is presented. I've noticed that the Malore menus in particular are displaying keywords (like "creepy" or "funny" or "dark") where the star ratings used to be. These keywords seem to be new with Schedules Direct.

In v7, I would sometimes see movie studio names instead of the star ratings.

In both cases I think this happens for movies that don't have any star ratings data.

If I remember correctly, the API for the old Sage guide data used to have functions for returning things like show title, episode title etc. I don't think there was a specific function to get star rating. Instead there was a catch-all that got all the misc extra stuff as one long string. Then you had to parse it out to find what you were looking for. I think the stv may need some cleanup in this area.

You are correct. The rating is returned with the misc data. When a movie is imported, the rating is created and prepended to the misc data based on the rating provided from Schedules Direct.

I'm going to try to find some time in the near future to edit the malore menus to fix those somewhat random adjectives that appear after some show titles.
