Description

Name pattern matching won't match the following:

Source:zap2it: Show Name Smallville: Source:EIT Show Name Smallville - CW

When show titles don't match all other data is cleared including episode name. No way to manually enter the data(episode name, etc) later.

I svn update and compiled 4/26/07

Feature request without a patch.

Mixing EIT and xmltv data is currently unsupported.

"Feature request without a patch?????????" The feature is already existing, and I see it happen in the output log all the time after an EIT scan, for different shows.

After an EIT scan I see output from an existing part of the program that states that "this program name" matches "that program name". Sorry, I can think of the exact phrasing. One will have a "the" or some other word and the other one won't, and those are matched just fine. The output has a number after the word 'match [number]:<Name of show source 1>" vs "<Name of show source 2>" ' that has unknown meaning.

"Mixing EIT and xmltv data is currently unsupported."

Search the mailing list, this can be enabled, but is not yet supported. If you have a patch someone will look at it, but since the code is incomplete there is no point in opening defect tickets.

Okay, look at it a different way.

You have two different sources of data.

Two different sets of people input that data into the servers.

Are you going to go and bash their heads together and get them to type *exactly* the same thing for every show they are typing into their databases?

No? Didn't think so...

You are lucky they get as close as they do. People in some countries would be happy with vaguely accurate data from 1 source that can be used for scheduling a week in advance.

Under no circumstances will "Smallville" equal "Smallville - CW"

Use a power search rule for Smallville. That's what it's there for. The duplicate matching won't be as good, but it's only as good as the data used for scheduling.

in C++ using the linux equilivant to the windows strstr("Smallville - CW","Smallville") will ALWAYS result in true

What filename contains the code so I can examine it and see if I can improve it.
