    GuidePlus: Yet another guide enhancer :0)

    http://gbpvr.com/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Utility/GuidePlus

    Its a command line xml enhancer (only tried on schedules direct) that is very quick, doesn't explode when your internet connection is down and does a few basic things.

    Movies - adds 3 things to the title - star rating, year released, and if its new to the guide. For example 30 days of night would look like this during the first few weeks after it hits your guide:

    30 Days of Night (2.5+)(2007)(new)

    For the first few weeks as it builds a history pretty much all movies made within two years will show up as new but as the history grows it will only tag movies that are new to your guide history as new.

    Series - adds a * to the title if its new, moves A, An and The to the back. Does a tvRage lookup on specified series to get the season and episode number which it prepends to the subtitle. So The Sons of Anarchy would look like this:
    Title- Sons of Anarchy, The*
    Subtitle- s1e4. Jaxson five

    YMMV - I wrote it because the enhancer I used kept freezing in the middle of the night and actually taking my machine down, plus I wanted the new movie function. Don't expect a whole bunch of support or extra features but its been running great for me for 2 weeks now so I thought I would let it into the wild. Note that you have to create a seed showDetail.txt file to get the series episode # working.

    Ok, so when are you guys going to add a setting to flag repeats and not new programs so I don't have to write my own.

    I would like to have:
    Heroes
    Heroes (Rpt)

    instead of:
    Heroes *
    Heroes

    Get the new .3 version (which also fixes a history file bug) and use the (undocumented) repeat= switch, in your case repeat=(rpt) and that is what it will do!

    lol. That would explain why you hadn't sent me your code for UltraXMLTv so I can upgrade it to VB.net but I'm taking carpeVideo's thread too far off topic. Sorry.
