specifications

tv grab dvb project decodes EPG (electronic program guide) TV listings from DVB (digital video broadcast) and outputs them in XMLTV format.

Requirements:

DVB Card Working in linux already, and tuned to a multiplex.



Usage

It reads a channels.conf file tzap format in the current directory to decode the channel names (at the moment). May not always need this.

Tested with:

UK Freeview Now/Next
UK London 8 Day EPG test
Germany/Berlin DVB-T Now/Next
Sweden DVB-S

Tune into a multiplex with whatever you like, dvbtune, mplayer, mythtv and run:

tv_grab_dvb [-t timeout] > whatson.xml

What's New in This Release:

This release adds a -i option for reading from file or custom demultiplex devices and a -f option for writing to a file instead of stdout, supports different character encodings, translates three-letter to two-letter language IDs, and improves efficiency by caching files in memory.
