Metagenerator cannot retrieve TV ProgramIDs?

Has there been any progress on updating metagenerator so that it can again retrieve programIds for tv shows?

Not so far. The person who furnished the method reports the source has changed their format and he hasn't been able to crack it. i'm respecting his privacy by not identifying him.

At the moment the pyTivo forum where support of Metagenerator has been done is out of service, even though SourceForge states the forums are up now. (??)

Can anyone suggest a site where individual shows could be manually looked up as a interim solution?

I used kmttg to 'search' for a show and then used 'j' to display the details of that show.

I can't look at it at this moment and I don't recall if the field id calls it programId or not. But, TV episodes are typically EP<seriesId><episode#> where seriesId is 6 or 8 digits, and episode # is 4 digits. Movies typically start with MV<id>.

I can only get the information for the series to come up in kmttg, nothing for individual shows.

I did find that if you can find the episode on Zap2it, the programId shows up in the URL in the form EPxxxxx

I am still on the v1.1p of kmttg. Here is an example of a programId from the 'j' command for an individual TV show (Big Bang Theory). The partnerCollectionId at the bottom is the programId.

Code:
Thu 07/23/15 09:00 PM on 604=KTXHDT, Duration = 30 mins, season 2 episode 3, originalAirdate: 2008-10-06
Sheldon creates a monster when he introduces Penny to online gaming.
{
   "episodic": true,
   "episodeNum": [3],
   "channel": {
      "sourceType": "cable",
      "channelNumber": "604",
      "name": "KTXHDT",
      "type": "channel",
      "callSign": "KTXHDT",
      "stationId": "tivo:st.10420467"
   },
   "contentId": "tivo:ct.137138171",
   "description": "Sheldon creates a monster when he introduces Penny to online gaming.",
   "levelOfDetail": "low",
   "seasonNumber": 2,
   "title": "The Big Bang Theory",
   "type": "offer",
   "hdtv": true,
   "duration": 1800,
   "collectionType": "series",
   "subtitle": "The Barbarian Sublimation",
   "offerId": "tivo:of.ctd.10420467.604.cable.2015-07-24-02-00-00.1800",
   "originalAirdate": "2008-10-06",
   "startTime": "2015-07-24 02:00:00",
   "transportType": "stream",
   "collectionId": "tivo:cl.97522875",
   "contentType": "video",
   "subscribable": true,
   "isAdult": false,
   "partnerCollectionId": "EP009311820021"
}
As you found out, you can also get the programId from Zap2it. If you "View Source" from a season of a show on Zap2it, you can see a bunch of programIds at once.
