BeautifulSoup - Seca - 2011-07-21 01:24

I get the error ImportError: No module named BeautifulSoup. Anyone run into this? I have python-beautifulsoup installed and it shows up under /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/BeautifulSoup.py so I'm at a loss of what to do.

Just wanted to give thanks to Bluecop for the creation of the FreeCable add-on. That's what we calling it, isn't it ??.. and also to everybody that takes the time to help others get things working. I have now an apple tv 2 (which before xbmc was just a little black box) running xbmc and freecable.
However, one thing i'm missing is live tv. i have canceled my cable subscription but it would be nice to access the live news and so on..
Is there a live tv add-on that i'm not aware of ?? and if not..
I have a an RTMP stream that allows me to see live channels on my computer. It works through the VLC player. i'm wondering if it could be somehow made in to an xbmc add-on.

Thanks...

check out the seeon tv addon.. it gives you live tv.

There is a live tv. But for your local news I don't think you can do that.


Seeon tv - Humano555 - 2011-07-22 18:11

ok, so i just installed seeon tv.

path is: repo installer > passion > t0mm0

That's where i found it.
so, i do have NBC on it which gives me the Today Show, however it's the Florida feed i think, and i was looking for the NY Feed. so if anybody knows if i can get that feed please let me know.

In the meantime my Apple tv2 it's no longer just a little Black box. it's now the center of my entertainment.. Thanks to all you the Devs that make it happen....


- Humano555 - 2011-07-22 20:04

so, after i installed seenon tv, i checked all directories inside the apple tv2, but couldn't find anything that resemble seenon tv app or installations files.
so does anybody knows ehere to go to edit the list of channels on seen on tv ??

My purpose is i'd like to clean it up and add a couple more seenon tv channels that i have on my computer..

im sure that there should be a file that contains the descriptions and the stream addresses, and im sure i could edit that and add my own.. (i hope)..

Edit: i just realized i might be putting this up on the wrong thread, if so, please let me know.
Thanks..

I've been studying the plugin a bit and trying to wrap my head around the sqlite caching. One issue I'm having is that I can not find any evidence that my installation is actually creating or using a sqlite db (i cannot find shows.db ANYWHERE). Any pointers?


- mr.b - 2011-07-25 20:18

I must have missed it in the in code, but I finally got it to create the sqlite db when I select "all shows" option.


- BlueCop - 2011-07-25 21:09

sorry saw your post but then forgot to go back to respond. it just generates it on demand as you found out. I plan to include a current show list db with each release. so you dont have name match issues with tvdb and have to do alot of selecting the right show when populating the db with data. I am also not sure how always to categorize. Shows and specials not in the tvdb are seperated as well as specials and tv movies. I am considering adding some to the tvdb because they technically should be there. anything without metadata doesn't categoize well so it is seperated. It is mainly cosmetic but I like a pretty list of shows that can be display various ways based on that meta data. I am not sure I am using sqlite in the best way. It is very simple and figured it would be fast.

I am going to branch a beta version of free cable and probably hulu so I can try to do new features with worrying about breaking anything for existing people. I havent been considerate enough of current users because I always consider things beta. They really need better stable versions. Hopefully will get there soon.

I just recently dug out my old xbox running the latest stable XBMC4Xbox and can't get this to work.

The plugin doesn't even start for me.

Here is the relevant section of my errorlog

Bluecop.. thank you for your great addons and work on xbmc. you take xbmc to another level of entertainment and me and my family thank you for that.


- fotoshack - 2011-07-26 05:37

This is a great add on. Thanks for you work!

Startrek.com hosts full episodes of all the Star Trek shows. Any chance it could be added?

Let me know, or ask in the forum, before you add anything that hasn't been aired on TV. Those things are against the rules, but we might be able to work with you on it. We are allowing more "broadcast on internet" stuff lately, but what is allowed is still in flux.
