Maxemum TV-Guide is a KDE TV-guide. It is developed in C++, based on QT/KDE and uses XMLTV as it's back end to grab listings.

Some of Maxemum TV-Guide's features are:

* easy-to-use user interface
* quick channel(s)-only selection
* custom channel names and icons
* descriptions
* category filter
* hidden in tray while not used
* title-, actor- and description search
* favourite show highlighting
* blacklisting of shows
* realtime updates with colour encoded time
* automatic grabbing of TV-listings
* custom channel icon size
* a popup window alerting the user when favourite show starts
* execution of an external command upon user alerts
* favourite overview with quick removal
* realtime progress
* and more..


---[ v7.3.2 ]---[ 2007-03-03 ]---

* new translation: Slovak, by Jozef Riha
* new translation: Italian, by Matteo Azzali
* norwegian translation has been improved, by Leif Mathis Gaup
* french translation has been improved, by Starcrasher
* german translation has been improved, by Philipp Matthias Hahn
* episode Title-patch by nhjm449 applied
* bug-fix in parser (MTVG crashed if an icon-tag was located in a programme-tag)

---[ v6.2.18lang ]---[ 2006-06-07 ]---

This release include internationalization, added languages are:
+ Swedish
+ Norwegian, by Leif Mathis Gaup
+ German, by Philipp Kiessler
+ French, by Starcrasher

If you would like to help out and translate MTVG to your native language, please check out the .POT-file in the tar-ball! Use KBabel, GTranslator or similar for translation. Cheers lads, and thanks for all your support and mails!

---[ Time fix ]---[ 2006-04-30 ]---

I made a quick update for you guys that recently turned your clocks ahead for the summer. If the clock turning caused problems with MTVG, please recompile MTVG with these new files [mtvg.sf.net/timefix], and set the time offset in Preferences->General. Cheers!

---[ v6.2.18 ]---[ 2006-02-18 ]---

This release is for all of you people requesting custom channel icons! =) Some minor bugs have been fixed and new users will now be presented with an extract from the README at startup.

---[ v5.10.26 ]---[ 2005-10-26 ]---

This is a release with minor changes, apart from the one big thing - the forum! Every show now has it's own forum! Just right click on a show, select Forum and you're ready to start a debate. A summary of the changes:

* every show now has it's own forum!
* moved preferences tab to separate window
* resizable reminder dialogue when details are shown (request)
* quit button in main window (request)
* performance optimizations (please note that some results in lost custom channel names when upgrading)
* bug fix in parser (tv_grab_de_tvtoday , and possibly other grabbers, works better now)

---[ Fix (DE) ]---[ 2005-10-10 ]---

This is a temporary fix for all users in Germany (and possibly others?). Due to a faulty way of parsing the channel name, the channel names wouldn't show in the channel column in mtvg when using the german tv_today-grabber. Replace the files at [mtvg.sf.net/degrab] and recompile mtvg, that should do the trick! Sorry about the inconvenience!

---[ v5.10.3 ]---[ 2005-10-05 ]---

This release includes mostly user requests! New features are:

* more new user friendly
* two new views; search view (request) and full view
* time- and column separators (request)
* manual show column width (request)
* custom channel sorting
* doubleclick on show to toggle description
* category filter (request)
* go to next day at defined daystart (request)

* some performance optimizations and rewrites
* patch (for the US and others) applied; "default channel name fix". Thanks to nhjm449!
* reorganized prefs-tab for lower resolutions (request)
* minor bug fixes

---[ v5.9.12 ]---[ 2005-09-14 ]---

This release includes new xml-tags in descriptions, channel icons with custom size, a new (and less annoying) channel renaming system, show blacklisting, automatic checking for new versions of mtvg while updating listings and a bugfix in the reminder system.

---[ v5.8.8 ]---[ 2005-08-08 ]---

This release fixes some bugs in the design and presents a better looking presentation of time and time navigation. It is also now possible to customize channel names.

---[ v5.7.8 ]---[ 2005-07-10 ]---

In this release the reminder dialogue (which alerts the user when a favourite show starts) has been updated. Now there is a progress bar showing how much of the show that has passed. The dialogue auto-closes when the show ends (remaining countdown). Finally, it is now possible to check out the details of the show right in the reminder dialogue!

Bugfix: the application no longer shuts down if the reminder dialogue is closed instead of using the "Thanks!" button.

---[ v5.4.28 ]---[ 2005-04-28 ]---

Initial release.

Yeah, but choice is always good.

The other good thing about this program is that it works! ktvschedule stopped working for me a couple of revisions back :( and the configuration always seemed pretty confusing. I prefer the grid-like UI of ktvschedule however.

Thanks! Well, it serves the same purpose, but I don't think they're much alike actually. I couldn't find any app presenting the tv-listings in this short way, the way I like it! =) Hope you guys like it too. Please do send me some comments and suggestions for improvements! It is always nice to get some feedback!
Cheers lads!

do you plan to add support for nxtvepg?

Hi Thomas!
I'm afraid there are no such plans at the moment. I'm currently not in a country where tv-listings are supported by nexTView. =( I'm not even sure if there are such (EPG) signals in our analogue network..? =)

 gmt, design issues

ok, i temporarily hel myself by dumping the nxtvepg data into a xml file, but: all times are outranged by two houres (i'm GMT+1 + daylight saving) so i assume you're not mapping times? (tvtime works perfect)

i'd like to see the date selection combo as replacemetn for the date label, showing the date like the label does (i snap away the configure stuff usually, but wanna be able to change date easily ;)

it would be great if you#d allow to trigger tv app commands by clicking the entry (nxtvepg does so for xawtv but having this configurable would allow me to use other apps as kwintv or tvtime)

when i find the time i'm gonna write and upload a simple class to query the nxtvepg daemon

Hey Thomas!
1) Aaah! Of course! I never snap away the prefs-tabs so I've never noticed that! Thanks a bunch for that one! =)
2) I thought of this too, but I'm not quite sure exactly how that should work. I will give it some thought when I've got some spare time. =)
3) Hey! That sounds terrific! Although I guess I can't really try it out.. =)
Thanks for your feedback, I really do appreciate it!
Cheers man!

control external tv apps: http://nxtvepg.sourceforge.net/xiccc-proto.html but i don't know what apps besides xawtv support it (i'll look for tvtime) kwintv afaik supports dcop, so shouldn't be a big deal (if you need help on dcop - ask ;) unfortunatel the nextvepg tcp/ip protocol is not designed like e.g. a http server/client protocol (it's binary, so even not inter compiler compatible), so this won't work (unfortunately) i'll try to find another way for better interaction with nxtvepg (as reloading a 3mb file freaks me out ;)

 NL tv doesn't work

 by vipictomski on: Sep 15 2005
Score 50%

When I do an update I get a gezillion lines in red come up saying:

http://www.tvgids.nl/zoeken/?station=1&genre=&interval=-6×lot=0: did not find any date in page at /usr/bin/tv_grab_nl line 1133.

Just thought I'd let you know.

I tried it with the swedish config as in the README ( not the INSTALL ) file and it worked perfectly.

I ran the tv_grab_nl and that looked to work OK, but like I said, I get the msg above....

Hey Tomski!

All text in red are output from the external grabber, in this case the tv_grab_nl. Generally, if the grabber works fine in a console but gives errors or strange messages in mtvg; try to use the parameter --quiet with the grabber. This seems to solve problems for some users. Thanks for trying mtvg and for your feedback!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
