    Oh right, I'll take your word for it and add them in now while i'm at work for you. I won't have time to do it until end of the weekend otherwise.

    Don't think i can get digiguide for IRIX for me to test while i'm at work :(

    1.9.3 should be up in a few minutes...

    already changed mine (thought I'd at least try :p )

    thought about http://www.hep.phy.cam.ac.uk/vnc_docs/platforms.html#sgi for your irix box ...? I run a ssh server and the windows vnc server on my pc (pipex too), can do all my admin from work by sshing to home then vncing through the ssh tunnel from my work desktop to keep things nice & secure.

    hey ho

    I could probably do that but i don't like to leave my PC on all day. Instead i've got an old SGI machine (indy) at home running debian which acts as a webserver and reverse proxy for my TiVo :)

    Here at uni we have to share 1 PC between about 4 and its running XP so need adminastrative rights to install stuff :(

    Xvnc is very cool though, when i was on my work placement i had a PC and SGI machine sitting next to each other on my desk. I was using vnc to send the mouse and keyboard events to the pc when i moved the mouse off the end of the screen which meant i only needed one mouse and one keyboard to control both. It even sends the clipboard which is extremely useful instead of having to use the samba server or ftp all the time!

    Just installed 1.9.3 and tried to record something from Sky Cinema, but all I got is this:
    The TiVo seems to think it's just called SKYCN.

    Other channels are working OK, so I don't think it's my fault ;)

    It seems that Sky Cinema and Sky Cinema 1 have the same TiVo callsign in my code (both SKYCND).

    I will set Sky Cinema to SKYCN but can you confirm the callsign for Sky Cinema 1 for me (its probably something like SKYCN1).

    Cheers,

    Shane.

    I just need to know the channel name in digiguide (or on that error page you see) and the channel name in TiVo (check in tivoweb->UI->channel guide then look at the callsign).

    I've currently got both

    SciFi = SCIEU
    and
    SciFi Channel = SCIEU

    If its incorrect let me know and i'll change it accordingly (i only have freeview so can't check it myself i'm afraid :( ).

    It maybe just that the SciFi bit needs a space in....:confused:

    Thanks,

    Shane.

    According to TivoWeb:
    310 SKYCN Sky Cinema
    311 SKYCN2 Sky Cinema 2

    Thanks!

    I've made the necessary changes in the file if you want to check it works.

    upload this file to tivo, rename it to remove the .txt and do a quick restart of tivoweb.

    When i get a reply from threadkiller and i know the new changes are working for you guys i'll put them both in version 1.9.4

    Cheers,

    Shane.

    sorry for the delay in replying, the error message is

    ERROR: SCI FI not a valid channel

    Digiguide lists the channel name as Sci Fi, so i think you may be correct about the space

    Hi Marc,

    I've added a space into the Sci Fi name that digiguide gives. It should now correctly convert Sci Fi into the tivo callsign (SCIEU).

    Please test it and let me know if it works, same install procedure as in my previous post.

    Cheers,

    Shane.

    EDIT: Attachment removed, now in version 1.9.4 - see first post

    End-users of DigiGuide 6.1/7.0 can change the channel name presented in the DigiGuide GUI ... so they can make it match the TiVo setting.

    Also - the DigiGuide mappings are held in Provider templates.
    So even if your chosen provider does not have the channel name that is causing the end-user a problem ... you can find it by looking in the DigiGuide channel-templates directory and looking at the files in a text editor.
    (so you could - for example - look in the Sky-Digital one and pre-populate your module with pretty well everything known ... assuming that there is an equivalent way to find all of the TiVo call signs.)

    Don't you just hate it when you can't understand why you didn't implement case insensitive matches right from the beginning :D

    Anyway, a new version is in first post which solves the problem of digiguides change of "Five" to "five"

    I've also separated the channel mapping file so that you can download it separatly when any other modifications are made.

    As always, if there are any problems, post here..

    Cheers,

    Shane.

    presumably updating to a new version is as simple as overwriting the old files on both the PC and Tivo?

    You probably won't have to update the PC files. They did change in version 1.6 when i implemented 'watch this channel on tivo' but you probably already have that or a newer version.

    Just upload the digiguidesearch.itcl and chan_map.txt files to your tivoweb modules directory using a binary ftp transfer.
