'Upcoming Movies' Displays No Show

I'm having a problem getting the 'Upcoming Movies' to work. I am using Sagetv 2.1.10 with Cayars15 Ultimate STV (Release 15 - Dec 4).

I have set a list of channels under 'Enhancements' (i.e. 702, 703 or Sky Movies 1, Sky Movies 2....etc) but I still get - No Show

Any ideas on how to fix this?

thanks

I have the same problem.
I think it may haave something to do with the fact that I get my EPG data from radio times. with the grabber I use you can select for the word 'film' to be added to the title of and films. If there was a 'movie' option on this grabber it may work?!?

Question

That would explain why 'browse by category' - films works. Thanks

I also use the radio times grabber. Is there a way I can edit the cayars_menu.xml to use the 'browse by category' filtered to show only the films instead of the Upcoming movies list?

Or is there an easier way?

Thanks

nope...

You either need to translate the categories in the epgdata.XML (Film->Movie) -- I do this -- or use an EPG import plugin that translates upon import...

Alan has updated his grabber so that you can put 'movie' in the title. Check it here.

do you have the "movie channels" configured properly? I dunno if this is that STV, but that would result in the results you describe.

EDIT: what I mean is, theres an area which defines what channels to use to look for movies, by default they did not work for me, and I had to change it otherwise that was blank.

By the looks of it, the Alan Birtles grabber only puts the word 'movie' into the title of the programme. I think that it also needs to replace the catagory name for it to work 100%.

Using data from the Radiotimes grabber, I just tried a find and replace on the catagory names for film > movie and Sagetv then picked them up as upcoming movies. It didn't work for me before I did that.

I also just tried a manual find and replace on the catagory names for film > movie and Sagetv then picked them up as upcoming movies. It didn't work for me before I did that, I also haven't bothered adding the word movie in the title.

Has anyone written a batch file already to do a search and replace that will work with rt grabber generated xml file?

Thanks for your help Guys.

Used 'XMLTV's tv_grep' in the nightly batchfile that Neilm suggested - http://forums.sage.tv/forums/showpos...77&postcount=7
had to make a slight change to get it to work in a batch file (changed > epgdata_trans.xml to --output epgdata_trans.xml) , I now have populated 'upcoming movie'

Thanks for your help Guys.

Ok, that makes sense. I'll have a look at that later.

Cheers!

Sorry Birty, it was me that asked for the 'movie' button to be implemented into your grabber last night. I hadn't seen the post about categories. Doh! I have implemented the 'altcats.txt' file and all is working well.

On a positive note, I guess it is good for continuity that the EPG guide actually says 'movie' instead of 'film' for all the movies/films that are on
