tv_grab_fi --list-channels


Output TV listings for several channels available in Finland. The data comes from which is owned by one of the largest companies providing TV listings in Finland. The grabber relies on parsing HTML so it might stop working at any time.

First run tv_grab_fi --configure to choose, which channels you want to download. Then running tv_grab_fi with no arguments will output listings in XML format to standard output.

--configure Prompt for which channels, and write the configuration file.

--config-file FILE Set the name of the configuration file, the default is ~/.xmltv/tv_grab_fi.conf. This is the file written by --configure and read when grabbing.

--output FILE write to FILE rather than standard output.

--days N grab N days. The default is ten.

--offset N start N days in the future. The default is to start from today.

--quiet suppress the progress messages normally written to standard error.

--list-channels write output giving <channel> elements for every channel available (ignoring the config file), but no programmes.

The data source does not include full channels information and the channels are identified by short names rather than the RFC2838 form recommended by the XMLTV DTD.
