tv_grab_fi [--cache <FILE>] [--config-file <FILE>] [--days <N>] [--gui [<OPTION>]] [--offset <N>] [--output <FILE>] [--quiet] tv_grab_fi --capabilities tv_grab_fi --configure [--cache <FILE>] [--config-file <FILE>] [--gui [<OPTION>]] [--quiet] tv_grab_fi --description tv_grab_fi --help|-h|-? tv_grab_fi --list-channels [--cache <FILE>] [--gui [<OPTION>]] [--quiet] tv_grab_fi --version
Grab TV listings for several channels available in Finland. The data comes from various sources, e.g. www.telkku.com. The grabber relies on parsing HTML, so it might stop working when the web page layout is changed. You need to run "tv_grab_fi --configure" first to create the channel configuration for your setup. Subsequently runs of "tv_grab_fi" will grab the latest data, process them and produce XML data on the standard output.
NONE Grab mode. --capabilities Show the capabilities this grabber supports. See also <http://wiki.xmltv.org/index.php/XmltvCapabilities>. --configure Generate the configuration file by asking the users which channels to grab. --description Print the description for this grabber. --help|-h|-? Show this help page. --list-channels Fetch all available channels from the various sources and write them to the standard output. --version Show the version of this grabber.
--cache FILE File name to cache the fetched HTML data in. This speeds up subsequent runs using the same data. --gui [OPTION] Enable the graphical user interface. If you don't specify OPTION then XMLTV will automatically choose the best available GUI. Allowed values are: Term Terminal output with a progress bar TermNoProgressBar Terminal output without progress bar Tk Tk-based GUI --quiet Suppress any progress messages to the standard output.
CONFIGURE MODE OPTIONS
--config-file FILE File name to write the configuration to. Default is $HOME/.xmltv/tv_grab_fi.conf.
GRAB MODE OPTIONS
--config-file FILE File name to read the configuration from. Default is $HOME/.xmltv/tv_grab_fi.conf. --days "N" Grab "N" days of TV data. Default is 14 days. --offset "N" Grab TV data starting at "N" days in the future. Default is 0, i.e. today. --output FILE Write the XML data to FILE instead of the standard output.
CONFIGURATION FILE SYNTAX
The configuration file is line oriented, each line can contain one command. Empty lines and everything after the "#" comment character is ignored. Supported commands are: channel ID NAME Grab information for this channel. "ID" depends on the source, "NAME" is ignored and forwarded as is to the XMLTV output file. This information can be automatically generated using the grabber in the configuration mode. series description NAME If a programme title matches "NAME" then the first sentence of the description, i.e. everything up to the first period ("."), question mark ("?") or exclamation mark ("!"), is removed from the description and is used as the name of the episode. series title NAME If a programme title contains a colon (":") then the grabber checks if the left- hand side of the colon matches "NAME". If it does then the left-hand side is used as programme title and the right-hand side as the name of the episode. title map "FROM" 'TO' If the programme title starts with the string "FROM" then replace this part with the string "TO". The strings must be enclosed in single quotes ("'") or double quotes ("""). The title mapping occurs before the "series" command processing.

The channels are identified by channel number rather than the RFC2838 form recommended by the XMLTV DTD.
