NAME

       epgsearchmenu.conf - Customizing the EPG menus

DESCRIPTION

       The file epgsearchmenu.conf in your epgsearch config directory is used to store the
       entries for customizing the EPG menus. You specify the look of each menu (What's on now,
       What's on next, What's on at ..., Schedule, Search results, Favorites) with a separate
       line.

EXAMPLE

        MenuWhatsOnNow=%chnr%:3|%progrt2s%:5| %time% %t_status%:8|%category%:6| %title% ~ %subtitle%:35
        MenuWhatsOnNext=%chnr%:3|%time% %t_status%:8|%category%:8| %title% ~ %subtitle%:35
        MenuWhatsOnElse=%chnr%:3|%time% %t_status%:8|%category%:8| %title% ~ %subtitle%:35
        MenuSchedule=%time% %t_status%:8|%genre%:14| %title% ~ %subtitle%:35
        MenuSearchResults=%chnr%:3|%datesh% %time% %t_status%:14|%genre%:8| %title%%colon% %subtitle%:35
        MenuFavorites=%chnr%:3|%datesh% %time% %t_status%:14|%genre%:8| %title%%colon%%subtitle%:35

SYNTAX

       E.g. the entry 'MenuWhatsOnNow' tells epgsearch how you would like to build a line for the
       menu 'What's on now'. This would create a menu line starting with the channel number,
       followed by a progress bar in text2skin style, a space of one char, the start time, the
       timer status, the EPG category (like "movie") and finally the title and subtitle.

       The values for MenuWhatsOnNext, MenuWhatsOnElse, MenuSchedule, MenuSearchResults,
       MenuFavorites specify the menu 'What's on next', 'What's on at ...', 'Schedule', 'Search
       results' and 'Favorites' respectively. If you do not specify one entry, epgsearch uses its
       default menu look.

       'MenuSearchResults' has something special: If you want to have different layouts for your
       search results depending on the search, you can use more then one menu template. Simply
       define e.g. an additional

        MenuSearchResultsTip of the Day=%chnr%:3|%time_w%:4|%t_status%:3|%genre%:10|%title%%colon% %subtitle%:35

       This will produce an additional menu item "Result menu layout" in the edit menu of a
       search where you can choose between the default menu template and your own templates. In
       the example above you will get "Tip of the Day" as selection entry, since epgsearch simply
       cuts the leading "MenuSearchResults". When you display the search results the chosen
       template will be used instead of the default one.

       The following variables exist:

        %time%           - start time in format HH:MM
        %date%           - start date in format TT.MM.YY
        %datesh%         - start date in format TT.MM.
        %time_w%         - weekday name
        %time_d%         - start day in format TT
        %time_lng%       - start time in seconds since 1970-01-01 00:00
        %title%          - title
        %subtitle%       - subtitle
        %t_status%       - timer status ('T', 't', 'R')
        %v_status%       - VPS status
        %r_status%       - running status
        %status%         - complete status, the same as
                           '%t_status%%v_status%%r_status%'
        %colon%          - the sign ':'
        %<epg-category>% - a value from the extended EPG categories, specified in
                           epgsearchcats.conf, like %genre% or %category%

       for the 'Whats on...' and 'Search results' menu there is also:

        %chnr%           - channel number
        %chsh%           - the short channel name
        %chlng%          - the 'normal' channel name
        %chdata%         - VDR's internal channel representation (e.g. 'S19.2E-1-1101-28106')
        %progr%          - graphical progress bar (not for menu 'Search results')
        %progrT2S%       - progress bar in text2skin style (not for menu 'Search results')

       the variables are not case sensitive.

       An entry consists of up to 6 tables separated with '|'. The last entry of each table
       should declare the table width in chars, separated with ':'.

       If you use a separator like '~', '-' or '#' to separate items like title or subtitle, e.g.
       %title% ~ %subtitle%, and the subtitle is empty, then epgsearch will try to fix this
       automatically to avoid a trailing separator.

       You should vary the tab width values to fit your needs, since the look often depends on
       the selected skin. epgsearchmenu.conf is not reloaded with every plugin call, since this
       is only useful when testing the conf file. To activate the permanent reload for testing
       your conf, pass the new start parameter '-r' or '--reloadmenuconf' in your runvdr.

       There's a sample epgsearchmenu.conf in the subdirectory "conf". For a quick try copy it to
       your epgsearch config directory (e.g. /etc/vdr/plugins/epgsearch).

       To enable icons from the VDRSymbols font simply put the line

        WarEagleIcons=1

       to epgsearchmenu.conf. The VDRSymbols font is available at
       +http://andreas.vdr-developer.org/fonts/download.html

       NOTE: As long as there is a file epgsearchmenu.conf with an entry for a special menu, all
       setup settings regarding the look of this menu are ignored.
