Episode numbers in file name (German TV shows)

Added by Robert Trapp 14 days ago

Hi Guys,

I'm recording a lot of tv shows.
In the recording profile I activated "add episodes to file name", but it looks like it is not working.

In EPG of the tv show is a episode number included, but not like usually SxxEyy
Here they use number from 01-99 without season id.

An other question is fit there is different between German or English tv shows.

Is this feature working at some German users?

Cheers Robert

Hi Robert
First check the EPG table (the leftmost tab in the browser interface). Do you see a column "Episode"? If not, click on the right corner of a column title, select the Columns pull-down and select the Episode entry.
Do you see episode numbers displayed in the EPG?
Do the same thing in your Digital Video Recorder tables.
If you see episode info in these tables, the EPG parser is OK and your trouble lies in the Recording profile.
If the episode column in EPG and Recordings is empty, you should check the EPG parser/scraper specified for your EPG grabber. These are in /usr/share/tvheadend/data/conf/epggrab/eit/scrape, you can add your own and select this via the Scraper configuration field of your Grabber module.

hi Rob,

thanks for you answer.
You are right, the episode column isn't showing anything.

Is there anywhere a guide how to create my own EPG grabber?
At the moment I use Over-the-air:EIT: DVB Grabber as default setup in tvh.

Cheers Robert

Have you seen the docs? :) https://docs.tvheadend.org/webui/config_epggrab/

Below are my own notes:
Installed:
xmltv - A set of utilities to manage your TV viewing

xmltv-grabbers - Backends for xmltv

tv_find_grabbers baseline manualconfig

tvheadend config i /home/dalton/.hts/tvheadend

cd /home/homer/.hts/tvheadend

[email protected]:~/.hts/tvheadend> tv_grab_se_tvzon --configure
The file at this URL describes which channels are available and where data can be found for them.
Root URL for grabbing data: [http://xmltv.tvzon.se/xmltv/channels.xml.gz]
tv_grab_se_tvzon uses a cache with files that it has already downloaded. Please specify where the cache shall be stored.
Directory to store the cache in: [/home/homer/.xmltv/cache]
Select the channels that you want to receive data for.
Blue Movie 1 [yes,no,all,none (default=no)] n

Hello Anders,

thanks for you help.

Just installed it like you wrote, I also found an other guide.
Now it look like working good.

It there a recommendation to use one or two epg grabber?
Especially only XMLTV or additional the over the air EIT?

There is one thing I can't understand.
The EPG is showing two event for one episode 5min and 40min?
Is there a reason for this behavior.

Cheers Robert

Odd. Hard to say without looking at the actual EPG data. Most of the open-source EPG sources are compiled by volunteers and the quality may vary. You may want to contact the maintainer of the source you have chosen and ask.

I will wait for the next recoding.
Should have a look into the recording before opening any issue ticket.

Tanks for your help.

Cheers Robert
