tv grab dvb 0.10 Beta

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


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


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.
