    Schedules Direct Movie Year

    Currently unsupported also would like to see Actors names for TV as well as Movies. All of this was present when using the now defunct Radio Times feed and is present in Schedules Direct but not being utilised by Nextpvr

    I download from Schedules Direct to an xmltv file and then use ... http://forums.nextpvr.com/showthread...477#post434477 ... It works but the SD data is not as good as Radio Times was ... for example, shows only the names of the actors and not the names of the characters that each is playing.

    Still wondering if we'll ever get full support in NPVR for Schedules Direct Data! (or even improved?)

    Sub has posted that he reads but but doesn't necessarily reply to Wishlist posts.

    For cast and crew what happens when you use the right arrow on the guide popup?

    Sorry for late reply - actors listed but not roles in Movie.
    What I really miss most is that I have used to have Movie release year in brackets after the Movie title in the guide itself - not sure now if that was when I used to use TV Listings.
    I think Movie year should at least be in the guide popup but would prefer in guide itself as I had at one time.
    e.g. King Kong (1933) - so many reboots so little time!

    With the new PostLoadEPG.bat feature, I think that it would be extremely easy for you to update the titles of Movies to include the year during the EPG Update processing.
    Code:
    - added support for calling a PostLoadEPG.bat, just prior to scheduling the recurring recordings, allowing users to hook in EPG data manipulation prior to scheduling etc.

    Roles aren't available from Schedules direct.

    For the script it is easy by suggest putting the year in the subtitle since it isn't used for movies anyway.

    A vast majority of the movies do include the character name / role:

    Code:
    {
    	"programID": "MV000000010000",
    	"titles": [{
    		"title120": "Second-Hand Hearts"
    	}],
    
    <snip>
    
    "cast": [{
    		"billingOrder": "01",
    		"role": "Actor",
    		"nameId": "71935",
    		"personId": "71935",
    		"name": "Robert Blake",
    		"characterName": "Loyal Muke"
    	}, {
    		"billingOrder": "02",
    		"role": "Actor",
    		"nameId": "84233",
    		"personId": "84233",
    		"name": "Barbara Harris",
    		"characterName": "Dinette Dusty"
    	}, {
    		"billingOrder": "03",
    		"role": "Actor",
    		"nameId": "80964",
    		"personId": "80964",
    		"name": "Collin Boone",
    		"characterName": "Human Dusty"
    So, the actor Robert Blake portrayed "Loyal Muke".

    Petrovski: Is that what you're referring to?

    If yes, and there's a MV that doesn't include the information, please open a ticket at the Schedules Direct website so that we can get the data updated.
