#12151 closed Bug Report - General (Fixed)

EIT format changed, making dupe detection fail

Reported by: info@… Owned by: Karl Egly
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28
Component: MythTV - EIT Version: Unspecified
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The ProSiebenSat1 channels ProSieben?, Sat.1, Kabel Eins, Sixx and maybe more appear to have changed their EIT format for certain shows in the subtitle and description fields. This is on German DVB-C by provider WilhelmTel?.

For example, an episode of Criminal Minds used to have this: Title: 'Criminal Minds' Subtitle: Desc: '<plot summary>'

Now it turned to this: Title: 'Criminal Minds' Subtitle: '<episode title>, Crime-Serie, USA 2011' Desc: '<plot summary>\n\n<list of cast, director, writer etc.>'

While the little extra information is nice to have, this leads to failure of the duplicate detection because both subtitle and description are different from what they used to be, resulting in re-recording lots of episodes of shows that I've already watched in the past years.

In 2accf0ce0f55650e5a52d531270eb5068b73f99d/mythtv:

fix duplicate matching for Pro7Sat1 by removing credits from description

Also adds minimal fixing of crew and cast into proper credits.
This will only fix duplicate matching if testing
"subtitle, then description" in cases where it is the same description
as last year.

I'm not sure what version you are running, but this should have been fixed 4 weeks ago in the upcoming 0.28 release. Can you confirm that?
