VDRSeriesTimer.pl

Eplists is a database which stores the episodes names for many series.

VDRSeriesTimer.pl is a Perl-Script, which, if called with an episode name, searches the database for the season information according to this name.

The Script is intended to be be an addon to the VDR plugin epgsearch and can also be included into tvmovie2vdr.

Example:

Script call: $ VDRSeriesTimer.pl --title 'Bones' --subtitle 'A Boy in the Tree' --formatprefix "Series~%T~"

Result: Series~Bones~01x03 - 003. A Boy in the Tree

Script call: $ VDRSeriesTimer.pl --title 'Bones' --subtitle 'A Boy in the Tree' --formatprefix "" --format "%sx%e %2n"

Result: 01x03 03

This numbers mean: Season 1, Episode 3, Number 3

DESCRIPTION

VDRSeriesTimer.pl is called out of the epgsearchuservars.conf with some parameters.

It needs VDR > 1.4.0 and epgsearch > 0.9.19.

This allows you to configure the timer which is set by an series-searchtimer.

Normally, if the EPG contains something like this:

 Title:    The Simpsons
 Subtitle: My Big Fat Geek Wedding

you will get an Timer like this

 The Simpsons~My Big Fat Geek Wedding

With this Script you can get this

 The Simpsons~15x17 - 330. My Big Fat Geek Wedding

or this

 The Simpsons~15.17 My Big Fat Geek Wedding

or this

 The Simpsons~S15E17 My Big Fat Geek Wedding

The Script recognize also some multi epiosodes with the EPG-format which RTL II uses in germany.

With

 Title:    Andromeda
 Subtitle: 15. Episode 1 / 16. Episode 2

you get

 Andromeda~01x15 - 15. Episode 1 / 01x16 - 16. Episode 2

1. Installation

Copy the Script VDRSeriesTimer.pl somewhere in the $PATH.

Then edit epgsearchuservars and add one of the following:

A) If you've extended EPG (tvmovie, hörzu, etc.):

 %Season%=system(/usr/local/bin/VDRSeriesTimer.pl,--title %Title% --subtitle %Subtitle% --episode %Episode% --category %Category% --genre %Genre% --date %date% --time %time% --channel %chnr% --timet %time_lng%)
 %DateVar%=%time_w% %date% %time% 
 %SeriesSD%=%Subtitle% ? %Subtitle% : %DateVar%
 %SeriesVar3%=Series~%Title%~%Episodes%. %SeriesSD%
 %SeriesVar4%=Series~%Title%~%SeriesSD% 
 %SeriesVar1%=%Episode% ? %SeriesVar3% : %SeriesVar4%
 %Series%=%Season% ? %Season% : %SeriesVar1%

B) If you dont't have extended EPG with category, genre etc., but the episode number, you can use a shorter version.

 %Season%=system(/usr/local/bin/VDRSeriesTimer.pl,--title %Title% --subtitle %Subtitle% --episode %Episode% --channel %chnr% --timet %time_lng%)
 
 %DateVar%=%time_w% %date% %time%
 %SeriesSD%=%Subtitle% ? %Subtitle% : %DateVar%
 %SeriesVar3%=Series~%Title%~%Episodes%. %SeriesSD%
 %SeriesVar4%=Series~%Title%~%SeriesSD% 
 %SeriesVar1%=%Episode% ? %SeriesVar3% : %SeriesVar4%
 %Series%=%Season% ? %Season% : %SeriesVar1%

C) If you don't have an episode number in EPG:

 %Season%=system(/usr/local/bin/VDRSeriesTimer.pl,--title %Title% --subtitle %Subtitle% --channel %chnr% --timet %time_lng%)
 
 %DateVar%=%time_w% %date% %time%
 %SeriesSD%=%Subtitle% ? %Subtitle% : %DateVar%
 %SeriesVar1%=Series~%Title%~%SeriesSD%
 %Series%=%Season% ? %Season% : %SeriesVar1%

In this short version, the script always tries to find an matching subtitle in the episodes list.

Then use in the searchtimer the variable %Series% as Path.

The episode files must have as filename the title of the series with the suffix .episodes.

So for the series The Simpsons, it searches for The Simpsons.episodes.

The Script allows per default a difference of 20 percent of the title, subtitle and the filename.

1.1 --format

With --formatprefix <string>, --format <string> and --formatspacer <string> you can define how the output should look. The default is:

 "%D~%T~"         for --formatprefix <string>
 "%sx%e - %n. %S" for --format <string>
 " / "            for --formatspacer <string>

Call "VDRSeriesTimer.pl -help'' to see what each variable means.

You can also change how many zeroes will be prefixed.

 "%s" results in "02"
 
 "%5s" results in "00002"

This can be used with %s, %e and %n. Don't try this with %D, %T, %S, %C and %G.


2. Episodes file

The file contains the episodes in the following format. Each field is seperated by one tab.

 #Season        Episode Number  Subtitle
 01     1       1       Season one, Episode one
 01     2       2       Season one, Episode two
 01     3       3       Season one, Episode three
 02     1       4       Sesaon two, Episode one
 02     2       5       Season two, Episode two
 ...

At the beginning of the file you can use some special keywords. Each keyword must begin with "# ''.

Take a look on some of the "ready to use'' lists, Webaddress at the end of this file.

2.x Keywords

Description of the available keywords.

2.1 SEASONLIST ... /SEASONLIST

If you don't have a complete episode list but your EPG contains the episode number, you can define which season contains which episodes. Then this script can calculate the needed data. Episodes, which are not in this file will be added.

 # SEASONLIST
 # 1    1       22
 # 2    23      44
 # 3    45      66
 # /SEASONLIST

The format is <Season> TAB <first episode in season> TAB <last episode in season>

2.5 COMPLETE

 # COMPLETE

The script assume that the episode list is complete, nothing will be changed in the file.

2.7 SHORT <text>

This text will be used as series title. So you can use this

 # SHORT DS9

to get "DS9'', if the title in the EPG is "Deep Space Nine''

You can use your own short title by using a "per series'' configuration file. See chapter 4.


3. VDRSeriesTimer.conf - The configuration file

If the configuration file .VDRSeriesTimer.conf in the users does not exist, an file with default values named .VDRSeriesTimer.conf will be created in your current $HOME.

Thes settings are:

ListsDir = "''

Path to the episodes list.

SeriesConfsDir = "''

Path where to find the "per series'' configuration.

UseShortTitle = yes

Replace the title with the short title found in the "per series'' configuration file or the .episodes file.

Protected = no

Don't change any file.

FormatPrefix = "%D~%T~''

Format = "%sx%e - %n. %S''

FormatSpacer = " / ''

Output format.

Fuzzy = 0.20

Fuzzy matching in percent. 0.00 means must match 100%. 1.00 means must match 0%.

Useful is something between 0.00 and 0.25.

SendEMail = no

Send an e-mail if something gets wrong, eg. an epiosde list cannot be found.

EMailTo = "''

E-mail recipient.

EMailSubject = "Season data missing''

Subject.

ChangeEPG = no

Add the season data to the epg summary. The script does this via svdrp.

KeepEPGSubtitle = yes

If the subtitle in the episode list differs from the one from EPG, don't change it to the subtitle from list.

CompareSubtitle = no

If yes, search the list by comparing the subtitle to get the season and episode numbers.

CompareEpisode = no

If yes, search the list by comparing the episode number to get the subtitle.

Fallback = yes

First, the script tries to compare Subtitle if CompareSubtitle is set. If this fails, it fall back to use other information to guess the missing data. If you don't want this, set this to no and the script returns unknown (?x? - ?.) if the first try fails.

VDRHost = "localhost'' SVDRPPort = 2001 SVDRPTimeout = 30

SVDRP settings.

MultiRegex = "(?:\s*)(?:(\d+)\.\s+)?(.*?)\s*(?:\/|$)''

How to detect multi episodes like Andromeda or Stargate on german RTL II. Fields are EpisodeNr, Subtitle. Dont' change this if you don't know what you do. ;)

Verbose = 0

Verbosity, increasing by using it more than one times, up to three times

LogFile = "''

File to log to.


4. "Per series'' configuration file

If you define the path SeriesConfsDir, you can put there one configuration file per series.

File needs to be named as the episodes file, but with ".episodes'' replaced with ".conf'', for example: Lost.conf.

Settings from this file will overwrite the global ones from VDRSeriesTimer.conf.

Possible settings are:

UseShortTitle = no

Protected = yes

FormatPrefix = "%D~%T~'' Format = "%sx%e - %n. %S'' FormatSpacer = " / ''

Fuzzy = 0.20

SendEMail = no

ChangeEPG = yes

KeepEPGSubtitle = yes

See previous chapter for description.

CompareSubtitle = no

If yes, search the list by comparing the subtitle to get the season and episode numbers.

CompareEpisode = no

If yes, search the list by comparing the episode number to get the subtitle.

Fallback = yes

First, the script tries to compare Subtitle if CompareSubtitle is set. If this fails, it fall back to use other information to guess the missing data. If you don't want this, set this to no and the script returns unknown (?x? - ?.) if the first try fails.

EpisodeIncrement = +0

If the episode number in the EPG isn't correct, you can increment or decrement the episode number. For example, +5 or -5.

StartWithSeason = 0

Start the comaparing with this season number. Needed for "24'', because there are the same subtitles in each season.

MultiRegex = "(?:\s*)(?:(\d+)\.\s+)?(.*?)\s*(?:\/|$)''

How to detect multi episodes like Andromeda or Stargate on german RTL II. Fields are EpisodeNr, Subtitle. Dont' change this if you don't know what you do. ;)

Verbose = 0

Verbosity, increasing by using it more than one times, up to three times

File to log to.


5. Examples

Results in:

 Smallville~05x10 - 098. Lex gegen Jonathan
 VDRSeriesTimer.pl --title 'Smallville' --subtitle 'Lex gegen Jonathan' --format "%T~%3s.%e (%4n) %S"
