Thanks for the quick reply ;)

Looking forward to next version then. My icons are all there except BBC Two (as bbc2_scotland), it's just the fields for Programme Name etc. were not filled except for the first one.

I actually found a way of dealing with this problem, by using a backwards-offset source file, e.g.

tv_grab_uk_bleb --offset -1 >foo.xml

Thanks for the quick reply.

I understand if you don't think it is worth a major rewrite for this, though I suspect it could be relevant for a lot of users.

The reason I say so is that the default positioning of desktop icons (which we don't want covered by our widgets) is on the left. It's therefore natural for most users to position the widget at the right, unless they have a very large screen.

I hope you reconsider sometime, if you have 'run out of ideas for improvements' as you say. I'll be using it either way :) - Mar 12 2006

Hi,

First, big thanks for a very useful widget. I just have two comments:

1) Can you explain the purpose of the red and green colouring of items? I saw the above about timezone problems (I guess this is why I still have some already-updated applications appearing in the list) but it doesn't really make it clear to me what the colours signify.

2) I like to position the widget in top-right of my screen, but this makes it 'bounce' to the middle when the Config panel or a package-info box is opened - even when the widget's position is locked. It'd be great if you could add a user-setting to control where the popups appear. Perhaps even vertically?

Keep up the good work!

Hi,

I grab UK listings using tv_grab_uk_bleb for the five terrestrial channels, and the XML output seems okay. However, when I run sKTVProgram, the channels take a couple of minutes to appear, and only the top one gets a listing. It just sits at "searching file..." indefinitely.

I'm on Gentoo, using xmltv-0.5.42-r2.
