tvheadend epg colors

Added by joe blow over 1 year ago

HTS Tvheadend 4.3-1857~g221c29b40 running in docker
Tvheadend HTSP Client 4.4.21
OSMC running Kodi 18.6 on a Vero 4k+

Having some problems understanding why some epg data shows colors that match the category, and others show no color.
For example:

This one shows no color and Genre: Other/Unknown
<programme start="20200513070000 -0500" stop="20200513073000 -0500" channel="BBCWDNA">
<title lang="en">BBC World News</title>
<desc lang="en">News. Reporting on the day's international news from London and from BBC correspondents around the world.</desc>
<category lang="en">News</category>
<episode-num system="dd_progid">SH00315789.0000</episode-num>
</programme>
This one shows Green and Genre: Documentary
<programme start="20200513073000 -0500" stop="20200513080000 -0500" channel="BBCWDNA">
<title lang="en">The Travel Show</title>
<desc lang="en">Seventy years after independence, Rajan Datar travels to two very different corners of India.</desc>
<category lang="en">Documentary</category>
<category lang="en">Travel</category>
<episode-num system="dd_progid">EP01871341.0169</episode-num>
</programme>

Thanks

Well, each genre is assigned a colour, but if the broadcaster does not define a genre, how would KODI assign a colour? Thus, all programs with no genre has no colour, meaning grey = unknown

Ok, so, each genre is assigned a color, and if that genre has <category lang="en">;News<;/category>, as in the first example, why no color coding?

I have no idea, but isn't that a question for the Kodi-people? What does it have to do with tvheadend?

sorry to bother you!

RE: tvheadend epg colors - Added by Poul Kalff over 1 year ago

You are not bothering me at all, but if I am to help, I have to understand what you are asking, and I don't think that you are asking about tvheadend... tvheadend assigns (records, really) the genre, but has nothing to with showing or assigning colours, at least as far as I understands it
