* and more..

* 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

---[ 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.

 "de grabber" Problem

Hi, great app, thanks. But there is a little problem with the grabber for germany. It can not find the channel for the program entry. It seems it is confused by the showview field. I would like to post an example but the software here filters this lines out. ttyl8er, t.k.

Hi Thomas!

Yes, I'm aware of the problem and I'm terribly sorry about that crappy bug! Please try to replace the files on this page [mtvg.sf.net/degrab] and recompile mtvg. It works perfect for me when I use the de-grabber! Please tell me if it works and I'll make it more official! =)

Thanks for your feedback man! I really do appreciate it!

Hi Andreas!

Sometimes, when the grabber works in a shell but not in mtvg, you could try adding the parameter --quiet to the grabber. Although, this might be another issue. You could try to replace the tilde sign (~) with your real /home/name. If it still doesn't work, try to touch the output file. Please try these suggestions and tell me how it goes. =)

Cheers man!

Hi Thomas!

TvToday changed their webpages slightly a while ago, so you probably need to update the grabber script; check out the cvs at:


Hope it works with the new grabber!

Cheers! =)

 Problem on update

 by trasher on: Dec 1 2005

First, Thanks for your app :)

My problem is the following :
When upgrading (tv_grab_fr --days 7 --offset -2 --output /home/trasher/.xmltv/mtvg.xml) the program says "Cannot get more than one day before current day at /usr/bin/tv_grab_fr line 153."

I've also tried withou days and offset (tv_grab_fr --output /home/trasher/.xmltv/mtvg.xml) the result is "using config filename /home/trasher/.xmltv/tv_grab_fr.conf
getting listings:
Can't call method "as_text" on an undefined value at /usr/bin/tv_grab_fr line 527."

I discover xmltv and don't know if I do something wrong...
Could you help me ?

Thanks a lot :)

Hi Trasher!

I tried the very same command and got the exact same output ("as_text"..). I then tried to fetch the absolute latest version , from the CVS. Then it worked as it should! =) So try the tv_grab_fr in the CVS, it works!

Cheers mate!

This app is wonderful, I'm using it since
1 month and will never more do withouth.

Can I suggest a new feature? a new
"favorite research" plain text box,
where user can add names of their favorite
actor, or name of rare film by hand.
When updating the list this search is
performed and if any of the above is in
the list the app warn the user.....

Hey Matteo!

Thanks for your kind words! =) Your idea has actually crossed my mind, although I haven't implemented any requests or ideas concerning the favourite-system YET. I know the fav-system needs a large rebuild, so I've made a list with requests here. Your request is now on it! =) I'm stuffed with work right now, although as soon as I get the time I'll update mtvg's fav-system! =)

Cheers man! Thanks for using it!

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.
