NAME

tv_grab_it_dvb - Grab TV listings for Italy from the DVB-S stream

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

tv_grab_it_dvb --help

tv_grab_it_dvb [--adapter N] [--config-file FILE] --configure

tv_grab_it_dvb [--config-file FILE] [--output FILE] [--days N]
[--offset N] [--quiet] [--verbose] [--adapter N]
[--no-cache-summaries]

DESCRIPTION



 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 from today.

<B>--quietB> Suppress the progress messages normally written to standard error.

<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.

CAVEATS

This grabber relies on the linux dvb api, and therefore does not run under windows.

EXAMPLES

tv_grab_it_dvb --adapter 2 --configure configures tv_grab_it_dvb using adapter number 2
tv_grab_it_dvb --adapter 2 --quiet grabs the full data without displaying anything (useful in cron scripts)
