Plugin Idea
« on: July 09, 2008, 02:19:49 pm »
I would like a plugin modified for mythtv and it integrated into Linuxmce. I need it, as a mythtv plugin because all my clients aren’t Linuxmce some are a standard mythtv clients.    
   The plugin is very similar to the imdb database parser for mythtv but this one parses I would need to plugin to parse the file name of a tv episode and import it into mythtv and linuxmce. The file name structure is like this:
Mash S01E01.avi  I.E. Series Mash season 1 episode 1.
I currently have in excess of 3000 tv shows broken into series. Sorting them and keeping track of what ones are watched as new ones are added is impossible.
This is a very nice feature that I think would make a great addition to both mythtv and Linuxmce.
Here is the API for the tvdb website

Here is an example of how this looks in mediaportal.

Here is the mediaportal plugin for a programming example.

Everything is GPL’ed so you can use what ever you need to parse and avoid recoding as much as possible. I can contribute $100USD to this project. Please feel free to jump in and tell the devs what you think of this suggestion even if you’re not able to donate.
