Description

Hi,

for german tv shows, there is a great source for season/episode informations http://eplists.constabel.net/.
For each tv show there is a .episode file, where all the season and episode information is listed.
It would be great, if we can use this source in Tvheadend to extend the events information.

I tried a lot with XMLTV, but for german channels, they are sometimes not complete and have gaps.
If I use XMLTV and DVB-EIT together, all season/episode information will be overwritten from the XMLTV source
on next EIT-EPG scan. So XMLTV is not an option and the DVB-EIT is great, but no season/episode information.

So, use DVB-EIT for event information like title and subtitle and extend it with season/episode from eplists.
The user can manually or automatical (via cron) download the complete eplists archive and Tvheadend parsing
the .episode files for each event. Or better import all the .episode files in a sqlitedb and then do the parsing
(much faster parsing).

Other project which is using eplists (parsing begins at line 180):

Thanks & Best Regards
Joseph

It's a bit of dup of #3354 - I don't think that it's worth to add these parsers directly to tvh, but the import (EPG entry modifications) using an external tool should be allowed.
