Hi All,

I've got a problem in that the shows available aren't the same as those listed on the Website.

I've tried disabling the caches but it doesn't seem to be updating.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi Haroldfinch,

This is due to the limitations of the program data feed currently available from the BBC and the changes they have made not so long ago. The plugin will only list the last 7 days and may have gaps. If you want to view older programs or fill the blanks you will need to view via the iplayer website. I use the advance launcher plugin to launch Firefox from within XBMC for this purpose.

Read back through earlier posts in the thread for more info. Things may change if/when community access is made available to the new bbc nitro program feeds.

Hope this helps

DJ

It maybe possible for an app for desktop/mobile to send a programme id to iplayer to play (with a feature request to something like send to xbmc etc) - I may add the option of also manually entering a programme id. that way it should be possible to play stuff that is available but not via our data feeds.

The only thing is that the programs are definitely within the last 7 days. I've compared the listing that I'm seeing through the add-on with those that are listed on the iplayer phone app and the website.
