"subtitle" in xbmc epg guide view

Added by dave albright almost 9 years ago

Hi
posted this in xbmc forum but no response...

in tvheadend epg (using schedules direct grab) I get a title and subtitle (everthing looks great).

is there a listitem in xbmc (frodo, ubuntu) to display the "subtitle" portion in epg program info?
what is happening:
"NFL football" title shows in guide info, but the actual teams playing are in the "subtitle" and do not get displayed in epg info (or plot).
thanx in advance
dave

I have the same problem with XBMC-PVR (Eden 11) from http://packages.pulse-eight.net/
I found that tvheadend sends title, subtitle, episodeOnscreen in separate fields (since HTSP version 6) and xbmc tvheadend plugin reads only title field...

See eventAdd in:
https://www.lonelycoder.com/redmine/projects/tvheadend/wiki/Htsp

See line 257:
https://github.com/Pulse-Eight/xbmc/blob/Eden-pvr-cec/xbmc/pvrclients/tvheadend/HTSPData.cpp#L257

(added 1 hour later):
But I found in: https://github.com/opdenkamp/xbmc-pvr-addons/blob/master/addons/pvr.hts/src/HTSPData.cpp
that XBMC Frodo supports fields: subtitle, description, image, starRating, ageRating, firstAired and seasonNumber, episodeNumber, partNumber.

So it's time to check Frodo build...

thanx for the info!
I'll keep an eye on it.
Still running the initial RC so haven't tried any nightly builds yet.
