• What is PyTVGrab?
    It is an xmltv library and tv_grabbers written in python
  • What is a tv_grabber?
    A tv_grabber is a script/program that creates an xml file containing tv listings for certain countries and channels.
  • What is xmltv?
    XMLTV is a set of utilities to manage your TV viewing. They work with TV listings stored in the XMLTV format, which is based on XML. The idea is to separate out the backend (getting the listings) from the frontend (displaying them for the user), and to implement useful operations like picking out your favourite programmes as filters that read and write XML documents. See http://www.xmltv.org
  • Why would I use this program?
    see http://www.xmltv.org
  • What programs support xmltv output?
    see http://www.xmltv.org
  • What is the difference between xmltv and this project?
    This project uses the python programming language as opposed to xmltv which uses perl. It is built around a central library so subsequent grabbers can benefit from the one central library. This aims to make development of grabbers easier as most of the functionality can be obtained from the central library. The perl grabbers don't (yet?) have this.
