Radio Channels on Sky UK

Postby kgroeneveld » Sat Jun 06, 2015 5:20 pm

As reported on the XMLTV mailing list (http://sourceforge.net/p/xmltv/mailman/ ... /34121959/), the radio channels for Sky UK lineups should begin with a zero.

For example "BBC Radio 1" in the stations array of lineup GBR-0001505-DEFAULT:

{"stationID":"24434","name":"BBC Radio 1","callsign":"BBCR1","broadcastLanguage":["en-GB"],"descriptionLanguage":["en-GB"]}

and in the map array:

{"stationID":"24434","channel":"101"}

The channel should be "0101".

The upstream data doesn't have a leading "0"; I'll open a ticket with Gracenote.

Hmmm SkyTV doesn't report leading zeros on their guide. http://tv.sky.com/tv-guide

So, I think this is a "cablebox" issue.. the cablebox requires a leading zero.

Right, so I'm looking at the guide on their website, and I also don't see any reference to their radio channels?

It's not a problem to make the various BBC Radio channels have a leading "0" in the data, but I'd need to know which ones need to have that.

I can start with just the one that you've called out and we'll see if it works. I'll let you know when the lineup has been updated.

This has been fixed; here's the top of the lineup for GBR-0001172-DEFAULT:

{
"map": [
{
"stationID": "24434",
"channel": "0101"
},
{
"stationID": "17153",
"channel": "101"
},


Which then has:

"stations": [
{
"stationID": "24434",
"name": "BBC Radio 1",
"callsign": "BBCR1",
"isRadioStation": true,
"broadcastLanguage": [
"en-GB"
],
"descriptionLanguage": [
"en-GB"
],
"logo": {
"URL": "https://s3.amazonaws.com/schedulesdirect/assets/stationLogos/s24434_h3_aa.png",
"height": 270,
"width": 360,
"md5": "dd01e7f37364125fad4a72"
}
},
