TVO has made a fairly substantial change to their website. It will take a bit to re-code for the new one.

Thanks for the heads up. So there is no way to scrape the shows automatically?

V1.0.4 in my git:
https://github.com/learningit/plugin.video.tvo
Has fix for new website changes - improved images and caching of metadata.
There is an addon setting to 'Initialize Metadata Next Start' - setting that will cause the metadata to be deleted and will refill the cache.
This is still pretty rough, there are a few shows which say "No Playable Videos" where I think there probably are.


If you have installed my test repo:
https://github.com/learningit/repository...odi_addons

You should get an auto-update or update available message. You may need to do a "Check for updates" to see the new version.

Please let me know if this works so that I can get the kodi.org repo updated.

No, wish there was, this cuts seriously into beer time.

Who drinks cold beer? Please don't tell me you sit down when you drink as well.

V1.0.5 in my git/repo fixes a unicode problem that prevented the viewing of "F"

V1.0.6 in my git/repo fixes the scraping issue for "the Agenda" - ugly fix and not sure that it will fix others. Also some more cleanup of unicode issues.

There has been a website change after I rewrote the addon. I'm looking at the issue right now, but it may be a day or two because it looks like TVO is updating different pieces of the website this weekend.

You're lucky because you've already cached some of the directories.

The issue with the website affects directory entries which do not have episodes and go directly to play a video. It looks to me like they are being slowly updated over this weekend, at least that's what I think because as I'm debugging, I'm watching the web pages change one request to the next. That's why so many entries are empty.

Be patient I'll get it working once the website settles down and I'm clear what the correct page format is.
