Program matching

Postby tony_park » Mon Feb 20, 2012 5:13 pm

Hi Oberon,

after re-installing windows and having to set up the guide data again, I'd like to check, when you import the epg data, is any program matching being performed to try and stop duplicates from recording?

If not, do you have any plans to implement this functionality?

Using this plugin is much much quicker to implement these days, but then rather than having 70+ programs scheduled to record, last time I tried it, there were closer to 500!


Thanks
Tony

I'm seeing the same problem. I'm also wondering if the guide supports any form of series link. Can anyone provide any information?

I can see that DigiGuide itself shows which series a programme is in, but that does not appear to be transferred to MCE.

As it stands I don't think the solution is workable and worth purchasing as a product.

Oberon, are you still developing this plugin? There doesn't seem to have been any activity since shortly after it was released.
This issue is the only thing stopping me from buying. At the moment, it seems EPG Collector is better at preventing duplicate recordings - but this plugin has the actual series/episode info available to work with, so should have the potential to work much better.

No, we are not developing this feature. At least not on short/mid term. Digiguide does provide any flags on new/premiere/re-run etc. And any logic the we may put into that would be fuzzy.

What about series/episode details, doesn't media center make use of this?

If something could be put in to make this work correctly it would be great.

Surely if the relivent data was passed over to media centre it could work correcly? It did when I was using the MCE guide listings.
