#12436 closed Patch - Feature (fixed)

Patch for fixup for Greek DVB EIT

Reported by: Yianni Vidalis <yiannividalis@…> Owned by: Karl Egly
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28
Component: MythTV - EIT Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no



I've added fixing for the EIT data of the Greek DVB providers. It covers the transmitter of Pelion, which I receive. I've made the corrections only on the transport ids and not the netword ids, trying to keep the scope as precise as possible.

National TV must be ok for the whole country, but other region's channels will not be affected.

The fixes consist of:

  • Correction of codepage for Nat. TV.
  • Moving the event's subtitle to the description, as it was misusing the subtitle field (actors, category, etc unnecessary info).
  • Reading category data from EIT where available
  • Using regexp to extract actors, directors, season and episode, and category data from the description field.
  • Updating the categories.xml file of the standard theme with the Greek translations.

I'm planning to extend the patch to include parental data extracted either from EIT or from the description, but I'm submitting what I have so far for review.

Comments, suggestions are welcome.

Thanks again for this great program.

Well, I'm adding v2, which has corrections based on new eit data, and new field additions. I'm attaching a drop-in replacement (eitfixup-greek-2015-04-25.diff) and the diff between the two versions (eitfixup-greek-diff-as-sent-to-04-25.diff).

I was hoping to add support for parental levels by using eit info, but I've seen that the class ParentalRatingDescriptor? : public MPEGDescriptor in dvbdescriptors.h file is commented out since its addition in 2005:

Is it ok if I just rely on description text to extract it? Is anyone else obviously more capable having an "itch" to check this out? Or, if not, could I ask for some guidelines?

Milestone: unknown0.28

The correct approach would be to uncomment the ParentalRatingDescriptor? and enhance it if necessary, and then use it within your code.

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by Stuart Auchterlonie

After looking at it more carefully, the ParentalRatingDescriptor? is only a stub, rather than being commented out.

Essentially all it does is verify the correct table id is set.

So, in this case, you need to enhance the methods in that class, to do whatever work is necessary to parse and use the available data.

I'd suggest implementing the toString() method first so you can see what is actually in the descriptor ;-)

To say that it's beyond my current knowledge level would be an understatement! However, thanks for your reply, I'll try to parse the code and compare it to classes that are used. Is there a "qt creator for ... daddies?" If my comments are getting close to locking this ticket, please let me know and I'll stop :)

Yianni, thank you for the contribution.

I had to make a small adjustment due to collisions in the fixup keys. (kFixGreekSubtitle amd kFixHTML both set to 1 << 27 broke the unit tests, so I found out when running "make test") It would be great if you could add a unit test to test_eitfixups so we don't accidently break it in the future.
