HI, i've been using tv_grab_uk_atlas successfully for ~6 months thanks to this forum, however, i have another quick question! when i look at :

http://192.168.1.35:6544/Guide/GetProgr ... T00:00:00Z

i see:

Code: Select all

<ProgramGuide version="1.0" serializerVersion="1.1">

Atlas (metabroadcast) provides the programme image/artwork i believe e.g this http://atlas.metabroadcast.com/#!dszxhc, how do i get the <Artwork> tag filled with the relevant pro gramme artwork?

This is not implemented and I don't know of a coordinated effort to change that.

The tricky thing is to find a universal way that avoids "download all images for all programmes in the highest possible resolution, just in case somebody might look at it" but still works well with the Atlas->XMLTV Atlas grabber->XMLTV File->MythTV Database->Client of MythTV's service API pipeline.
I've been thinking about a way to get at least some movie/series/season banners into the guide data by connecting the guide and themoviedb/thetvdb. But that's not so easy either. (Hint atlas and xmltv.se may carry thetvdb style seriesids already) Obviously that is a far way to proper pictures of actors - in character - for all upcoming programs.
