So your pull request has been merged. Since this occurred i noticed the following issue.Red_F wrote:A recent version of the PVR API has added the possibility to overrule the XBMC built-in genre types.
Version 1.6.164 will show the exact string sent as "Category" by ARGUS TV on the XBMC genre description, eg. "Kinderprogramma", "Series". The add-on does not translate or change the string and therefore any localization should be preserved.
I have issued a pull request to Team XBMC for this change, and once that is accepted you should have working Genre descriptions.
I use the skin "ReFocus" and epg timeline use to look like this when using that skin-
Now it looks like this -
The reason this has happened is because the skin is now trying to display Coloured epg genre strings for the timeline instead of the standard "pink/purple" epg timeline you see above... This is normal behaviour.
So upon further investigation, i realised that Argus-TV does not have any "category" information on any of my EPG data, therefor nothing is being received by XBMC.
I'm from Australia, and i use the stream data from DVB-T for EPG... I do not import epg at all from any other sources.
1. Why does ARGUS-TV not have category information for my EPG channels?
- am i doing something wrong?
- is there a check box i've missed?
2. Will you add the option to your plugin to disable reading of genre strings, just in case people have problems with categories, or do not want "coloured epg genre" data in XBMC.
Sorry for the long post
and thank you in advance.
