    Intro:
    I wrote this program, because it is hard to see what movies are coming up on the tivo. This program allows you to easily browse upcoming movies for your tivo. Allows you to browse by Category, premiere, keyword all movies that are playing on the movie channels of your choice. Used as a complement to the standard search module on tivoweb where you can search for specific shows, this you can browse entire listings. Comes as a 2 part process, a command-line process that parses the GuideData for movies, and the tivoweb module. I run it via cron once a night.

    Post below if it works for you and what you think.

    Until the next version of tivoweb comes out, I have a fix for the conflict detection part so it will ignore the suggested todo's. It is available on my website. sched.itcl just over-write the current on in your modules.

    Hi.

    Thanks for your script! it is a much needed addition to tivo web. I'm having some problems getting it all going. Have tried a couple of different installs. I seem to be following your instructions correctly yet whenever I run moviesort.tcl I get the following:



    Initializing Movie Channels

    Processing Guide Data ...
    Found 0 of Movies in 48 seconds

    The End


    I believe I am doing everything correctly. Everything is in the right place and paths and permissions set. I have set a lot of channels in the configuration file



    set preffered _channels {a lot of channels here all accurate based on guide info}



    What am I doing wrong? it is running on a d-tivo 2.5.2 w/ tivoweb 1.9.4b4.
    I have set some of my locals in the search for documentaries etc they are all two digits... could this be it?

    Thanks in advance.


    Just checked by removing locals... It's not that.

    Great. While you're at it... Is there a way to include the audio/video options in the search? I often look for all the movies that are letterboxed, or dolby etc.

    Thanks. Will let you know how the dtivo version works.

    Again, much thanks for the work.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...

    Loaded everything up again, same result.

    Initializing Movie Channels

    Processing Guide Data ...
    Found 0 of Movies in 46 seconds

    The End


    I wish I could be more helpful... the best I can offer is testing on the Dtivo for you. Will be out of town for a week but can help again then.

    Thanks again.

    Actually The problem was in the packaging. The one you tried was actually the old version. Sorry, but re-download and try again.

    Okay some progress...

    Now I get this:

    Initializing Movie Channels
    Initialized 54 Channels

    Processing Guide Data ...
    no such object:
    while executing
    "dbobj $showing get Time"
    ("uplevel" body line 30)
    invoked from within
    "uplevel $body"
    invoked from within
    "transaction {uplevel $body}"
    (procedure "RetryTransaction" line 5)
    invoked from within
    "RetryTransaction {
    set schedlist [get_fsidbyprefix "/Schedule" "$stationfsid:$date:"]
    set stationdayfsid [lindex [get_fsidbyprefix "/Sched..."
    ("foreach" body line 13)
    invoked from within
    "foreach slist $slists {
    set stars 0
    set premier 0
    set date 0
    set showing ""
    set seconds [lindex $slist 0]
    set stationfsid [lindex $slist 1..."
    (file "./moviesort.tcl" line 147)


    Then when I run the module it tells me i need to run standalone moviesort.tcl.

    Any other suggestions? If you get me tonight or tom am I can try before I leave.

    Thanks again.

    I will look at it tonight. Its a pain since I don't have a Dtivo to test it out. I might have to give you a debug version to see what's going on, but maybe I can find something.

    I've noticed a wierd bug. If I go to the movie search module and say i just want to look through the movies so I select "title keyword" and search for: I just put an "a" it brings up a list and a 1-25 and a next button. If I click on next or 2 it says "Did you forget to enter something to search for?" and goes to url

    http://tivo/moviesearch?searchby=1&scat=0&stars=0&premiere=0&sort=0&lastsort=0&start=50

    if I change the url to
    http://tivo/moviesearch?searchby=2&scat=0&stars=0&premiere=0&sort=0&lastsort=0&start=50

    it works fine and I can view all the 1-25 screens.

    I will check out the bug when I get home. But if you are wanting to just browse all the movies you don't have to change any of the default settings, just hit submit. And it will bring up all the movies, similarly if you want to see all the premieres, just click the priemieres and click submit.

    I have a DTivo and have been seeing the same problems that have been reported when running moviesort.tcl.

    Code:
        ("foreach" body line 13)
        invoked from within
    "foreach slist $slists {
                    set stars 0
                    set premier 0
                    set date 0
                    set showing ""
                    set seconds [lindex $slist 0]
                    set stationfsid [lindex $slist 1..."
        (file "./moviesort.tcl" line 147)
    
    I was getting this with a channel list of that included a few of my locals and HBO (501-504). I was too lazy to go find the whole list :) .

    Anyway, I can't remember why, but I restarted it with just a few locals {2 3 4 5 6 7 9}. I complete forgot about it and came back this morning to:

    I'll be in and out this weekend and have time to try a debug version if there's one available.

    Does this script know what is a movie and what isn't? I'd like to just add all the channels to the list of movie channels so that it will find movies on any channel if it will work that way.

    thanks!

    Yes it knows what is a movie. You can put any channels you want.
