No repeat flags coming through with ICETV guide

Postby Panosa » Wed Jul 27, 2016 12:53 am

Hello, am using DVBLink V6. Have noticed that shows marked in ICETV (online and via Media Centre plugin) as repeat are not showing the repeat flag in DVBLink's EPG.
I have checked the EPGID XML file in DVBLink and it does not have the repeat flag field or setting anywhere I can see.

Thoughts, help? Thank you.

If it is possible please share the xml file with the EPG data from the icetv with us. Just to check if there a "repeat flags "

Hi the_man, thank you for replying. I had never looked at the actual raw ICETV XML before, just the end result. Below is the xml snippet from one episode "Mythbusters" and a snapshot of what it looks like in the ICETV app. The full dump of the ICETV XML is too big (even compressed) to upload (if you still need it I will PM a dropbox link).

Code: Select all
</programme>
<programme start="20160730073000 +0000" stop="20160730083000 +0000" channel="103">
<title lang="en">Mythbusters</title>
<sub-title lang="en">Alaska Special</sub-title>
<desc lang="en">
The team spends their time productively in Alaska, where they check out the strength of a stick of dynamite on a 4WD and a frozen lake; the true or false of cabin fever and what the appropriate speed is to collide with a moose.(United States, English)

Having a look it "appears" as if ICETV (and I assume others like Media Centre that show it as a "rpt") use the field "previously-shown" to indicate a repeat. Is it possible for DVBLink to also flag an episode as a repeat using this rule?

Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry, but seems there is no a repeat flag in your epg data (at least in this particular part)
Please, look for more details there:
