I actually have a fairly advanced C-SPAN plugin with many cool options that I haven't published. I was debating making it a station in free cable. I was thinking of journalism/news type content doesn't fit well. I just go to Free Cable to be entertained and not be informed really. I was thinking of something separate for that. I wanted a rather sarcastic title for a news plugin like "ill-informed" or "ignorant wretch".

Thanks for considering these live streams BlueCop! "Democracy Now" would be a great addition

For anyone interested, I patched the XBMC.MyLibrary tool last night to filter on runtime. I was able to pull down an organized and well named folder structure of all full episodes only from the entire history channel lineup with a single filter. This fed into channels on PseudoTV nicely.

there are a lot of biographies on http://www.biography.com/videos/full-bios that do not show up anywhere in the add-on that i can find. im not sure if you were unable to add these or if its an unknown error, it would be cool if you added them. thanks for such an awesome add-on though.

Hello all, noob here and I did a lot of reading on this issue. I was able to get the repo added and the add-on installed. I am able to get to everything easily, the problem is when I select a show to watch it says working at the bottom right corner for like 5-10 seconds then it goes away and the show never starts.

Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to do any addition steps to make this work?

A little about my set up

ATV2 latest firmware
XBMC Eden latest version
FreeCable latest version installed from BlueCop's repo.
other add-ons (sports devil, icefilms, ustvnow) working good except for the occasional icefilms script errors

Thanks in advance!

Most important part is what are you trying to watch and can you see it on their site? For instance some of Teen Mom is down right now, but it is down on MTVs site which Bluecop can do nothing about.

Yeah, that was one of them. Let me try some more and I'll report back with the results.

Thanks for the quick reply!

angrycamel: thanks! very useful information.

spanktastic2120: I committed an update to add a Full Biographies item to the bio channel.

it also fixed spike shows only displaying a single season. it also won't display episodes that aren't available. it listed some future items before but they were not playable.

Having trouble with this plugin on ATV2Black, 4.x edition. Was working fine then 2 days ago just stopped playing streams. It says loading then screen goes black like it is going to play the video and then crashes back to the list of episodes. Sometimes it will even start the video for maybe 1 second and then crash again. Any suggestions?

Enable debug logging in XBMC, launch this add-on and do whatever you did previously to make it crash. Locate your debug log and upload it to http://www.pastebin.com or http://www.xbmclogs.com . Note the URL assigned to your uploaded log and post the URL here in your reply.

I would very much like this too. I have a dozen shows I watch and have to manually check each one to see if there are new episodes.

NBC aired a preview of "Go On" a few days ago. It's available on their web site. However, it doesn't show up in Free Cable. It appears that it's because it's not in the "Show Library" list at <http://www.nbc.com/Video/library/>. Instead, it's found at the "Previews and Specials" page under "Previews Library".

Is there any way that this can be updated to find that show? I realize that it's kind of a weird, possibly unique situation, but it sure would be nice. Maybe if there were some way to enter a URL to the page that the video is on and have it find the stream from there?

You can find it on Hulu.
