WIP Real EPG data for demo pvr client util (PVRDemoGen)
#1
Hi All,

Thought id anounce my first tool since coming back to the scene - PVRDemoGen. This tool creates realistic EPG data based for use with the pvr demo client. I created it due to fact neither Blackbolt nor myself had any TV Tuner equipment and thus in order to start skinning the new PVR windows I needed to do something. You can see my original question here...

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=145914

The tool is based around UK TV data and can do scrapes of channel data from FreeView, FreeSat, Sky & Virgin Media.

I plan to make the code and binaries public very soon but some last final bits I wish to do before.

If anyone can point me to what the <genretype> and <genresubtype> values equate to in the PVRDemoAddonSettings.xml I will try and map some real genres to the programmes.

Currently the tool is written in C# (Visual Studio 2012) but if any one wants a Mac port let me know.

Additionally if anyone can think of a decent name other than PVRDemoGen id be greatful Smile

And now for some screenshots...

I'm pretty sure (in fact 100% sure) it doesn't matter where you are located based upon the source i am using for the app.

Let me try to understand this tool: It's fake? Can I point a stream to a channel and it will work? I don't have a tuner either. I'm just looking for an XBMC web streaming EPG like Secondrun.tv for Windows Media Center.
