Output TV listings for several channels as provided by the DVB-S stream from Skyitalia.
This grabber is based on the work of Lukkinosat for everything concerning the decoding of data.
The tuning part is mostly a port to perl of the relevant parts in szap.
This is an early release and should be considered beta quality.
First run <B>tv_grab_it_dvb --configureB> to choose which channels you want
to download. Then running <B>tv_grab_itB> with no arguments will output
listings in XML format to standard output.
<B>--configureB> Prompt for which channels, and writes the configuration file.
<B>--adapterB> Use this adapter for tuning and grabbing. Default is 0.
<B>--config-file FILEB> Set the name of the configuration file, the
default is <B>~/.xmltv/tv_grab_it_dvb.confB>. This is the file written
by <B>--configureB> and read when grabbing.
<B>--gui OPTIONB> Use this option to enable a graphical interface to be used.
OPTION may be Tk, or left blank for the best available choice.
Additional allowed values of OPTION are Term for normal terminal output
(default) and TermNoProgressBar to disable the use of XMLTV::ProgressBar.
<B>--output FILEB> write to FILE rather than standard output.
<B>--days NB> Grab N days. Since we cannot decide how much data we get we
simply throw away everyting above this number of days.
<B>--offset NB> Start N days in the future. The default is to start
<B>--quietB> Suppress the progress messages normally written to standard
<B>--no-cache-summariesB> Disables caching of summaries in the file summaries.cache
It is advised to leave this option on as the summaries part of the data stream can be very
different between grabs, and you might get blank descriptions.
<B>--verboseB> Prints out verbose information useful for debugging.
Repeat (up to 4x) for more verbosiness
<B>--min-nonameB> This is a hack. As I have a situation where there are a few channels
whose name I cannot find (usually 3 or 4) you can sat the number of channel that can
be left nameless. Try using this if the grabber keep on running forever.
<B>--versionB> Show the version of the grabber.
<B>--helpB> Print a help message and exit.
