NAME

tv_remove_some_overlapping - Remove some overlapping programmes from XMLTV data.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

tv_remove_some_overlapping [--help] [--output FILE] [FILE...]

DESCRIPTION

Read one or more XMLTV files and write a file to standard output containing the same data, except that some ’magazine’ programmes which seem to contain two or more other programmes are removed.

For example, if ’Schools TV’ runs from 10:00 to 12:00, and there are two programmes ’History’ from 10:00 to 11:00 and ’Geography’ from 11:00 to 12:00 on the same channel, then ’Schools TV’ could be removed. A programme is removed only if there are two or more other programmes which partition its timeslot, which implies that it and these other programmes must have stop times specified.

To avoid throwing away any real programmes, no programme will be discarded if it has content data other than title and URL.

Filtering this tool won’t remove all overlapping programmes but it will deal with the ’big magazine programme containing smaller programmes’ data commonly seen from listings sources.
