Same question here.

Perhaps if bluecop can't maintain it like doesn't have enough time, perhaps somebody can look at providing a repo or at least some place that every single fix is stored so there is an easier way of finding the fixes vs scanning all over the forum.

Hmm ... maybe a fix database for addons?


At this moment you can find them here: fixes only for free cable

Thank you moneymaker hopefully we can get it all setup and continue this really nice addon. I would really hate to see it die as obviously others on here, otherwise I doubt they would make fixes Smile.

Just wanted to let folks know of something I noticed with the CBS.py fix.

If you click on a video and it doesn't play the first time, don't be discouraged or think the fix does not work.

Many times I have to hit play twice on the Late Show, with the second time always working.

Just figured worth mentioning in case folks think fix no workie Smile

EDIT: Bad news y'all, seems the NBC plugin is having the exact same symptoms as the CBS plugin did where it's just giving ".." and listing no shows. Sad

I am having problems with ABC, latest episodes are no longer listed.


RE: [RELEASE] Free Cable - US station aggregator - Eldorado - 2013-04-15 16:06

Why don't you guys submit these patches to Bluecop?


RE: [RELEASE] Free Cable - US station aggregator - mrdally204 - 2013-04-15 18:13

sportsdevil has a neat feature it added not too long ago. When you launch the add on, it will search to see if there are updates to the .py modules instead of having to update the whole add on each time there is a change. If there are updates to said .py files it prompts you to download them. It might be something to look into Smile

I do agree with Eldorado. If you submit the patches to Bluecop I'm sure he would be more than willing to incorporate them and roll out a fix for everyone. Devs love help from the community

Hi,

any help please

Seems to be working for me at the moment, including ABC and NBC. I was having some problems last night but that was to do with my internet grinding to a hault. May be worth checking you can get to sites you want with a browser.

Guess you are right.

Maybe when I was trying NBC they were doing server work or something because now everything is showing up or maybe my XBMC just needed a restart. Who knows, at least it's working Smile.

I'm running xbian on a raspberry Pi and would like to get abc and cbs working but I can't find the files. Any ideas?

Thanks


RE: [RELEASE] Free Cable - US station aggregator - RedPenguin - 2013-04-16 11:43

It all depends on what distro you are running on your RPi, but if it's Raspbmc, everything is in:

/home/pi/.xbmc (Yes the dot is supposed to be there)


RE: [RELEASE] Free Cable - US station aggregator - julianp135 - 2013-04-16 12:06

OK found the files (they were hidden) but now I can't delete or change the file because of permissions?

That function of Sportsdevil only updates the catcher files, all are .txt

To update the py's you would need a new release of the addon, or at least you should to ensure you keep track of code changes appropriately

The last posts by Bluecop indicated he is busy but still lurking, if users send updates to his google code page there's a better chance he will see and possibly pull them in for a new release

I am back to getting a script error. Is anyone else having a problem? This is when trying to play cbs shows. I have the updated cbs.py from a few pages back and it has been working for the past few weeks.

Yep, not working for me either. Looks like CBS have changed their website again.
