DESCRIPTION

Grab TV listings for several channels available in Finland. The data comes from various sources, e.g. www.telkku.com. The grabber relies on parsing HTML, so it might stop working when the web page layout is changed.

You need to run tv_grab_fi --configure first to create the channel configuration for your setup. Subsequently runs of tv_grab_fi will grab the latest data, process them and produce XML data on the standard output.

COMMANDS

<B>NONEB> Grab mode.
<B>--capabilitiesB> Show the capabilities this grabber supports. See also <http://wiki.xmltv.org/index.php/XmltvCapabilities>.
<B>--configureB> Generate the configuration file by asking the users which channels to grab.
<B>--descriptionB> Print the description for this grabber.
<B>--help|-h|-?B> Show this help page.
<B>--list-channelsB> Fetch all available channels from the various sources and write them to the standard output.
<B>--versionB> Show the version of this grabber.

GENERIC OPTIONS

<B>--cache B>FILE<B>B> File name to cache the fetched HTML data in. This speeds up subsequent runs using the same data.
<B>--gui [OPTION]B> Enable the graphical user interface. If you don’t specify <B>OPTIONB> then XMLTV will automatically choose the best available GUI. Allowed values are:
<B>TermB> Terminal output with a progress bar
<B>TermNoProgressBarB> Terminal output without progress bar
<B>TkB> Tk-based GUI
<B>--quietB> Suppress any progress messages to the standard output.

CONFIGURE MODE OPTIONS

<B>--config-file B>FILE<B>B> File name to write the configuration to.

Default is $HOME/.xmltv/tv_grab_fi.conf.

GRAB MODE OPTIONS

<B>--config-file B>FILE<B>B> File name to read the configuration from.

Default is $HOME/.xmltv/tv_grab_fi.conf.

<B>--days B>N<B>B> Grab N days of TV data.

Default is 14 days.

<B>--no-randomizeB> Grab TV data in deterministic order, i.e. first fetch channel 1, days 1 to N, then channel 2, and so on.

Default is to use a random access pattern. If you only grab TV data from one source then the randomizing is a no-op.

<B>--offset B>N<B>B> Grab TV data starting at N days in the future.

Default is 0, i.e. today.

<B>--output B>FILE<B>B> Write the XML data to FILE instead of the standard output.

CONFIGURATION FILE SYNTAX

The configuration file is line oriented, each line can contain one command. Empty lines and everything after the # comment character is ignored. Supported commands are:
<B>channel ID NAMEB> Grab information for this channel. ID depends on the source, NAME is ignored and forwarded as is to the XMLTV output file. This information can be automatically generated using the grabber in the configuration mode.
<B>series description NAMEB> If a programme title matches NAME then the first sentence of the description, i.e. everything up to the first period (.), question mark (?) or exclamation mark (!), is removed from the description and is used as the name of the episode.
<B>series title NAMEB> If a programme title contains a colon (:) then the grabber checks if the left-hand side of the colon matches NAME. If it does then the left-hand side is used as programme title and the right-hand side as the name of the episode.
<B>title map ‘‘FROM’’ TOB> If the programme title starts with the string FROM then replace this part with the string TO. The strings must be enclosed in single quotes () or double quotes ("). The title mapping occurs before the series command processing.
<B>title strip parental levelB> At the beginning of 2012 some programme descriptions started to include parental levels at the end of the title, e.g. (S). With this command all parental levels will be removed from the titles automatically. This removal occurs before the title mapping.

BUGS

The channels are identified by channel number rather than the RFC2838 form recommended by the XMLTV DTD.
