  More than one commandtv to run?
Posted by: toner_cloud - Yesterday, 10:21 AM - Forum: Linux & Unix General Help & Support - Replies (6)

Following on from my attempts at writing something to shorten a variable - in this instance it was firstbcastdate - I made it into a preset. Except it didn't run. I got an error :-
INFO: Running user command
sh: 1: Bad substitution
INFO: Command exit code 2 (raw code = 512)
ERROR: Command Exit Code: 2

GiP is running on an Ubuntu box but not as me. Instead it runs as a user called xbox. I had problems persuading anything to run under that user so added these lines to my gip script for cron :-

# ensure environment variables are set: cron jobs do not have these set
if [ -z "$HOME" ]; then
       export HOME=/home/xbox

So, in an effort to make my preset work, I turned it into a fully-fledged bash script and used the preset to call it. But .... it stops the commandtv line in my options from working.

The question is, should it? Running GiP in verbose mode, I can see this in the logs (removed the stuff that didn't relate to this) :-
INFO: PVR Run: 'ONCE_b0bbc6q5'
-==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==-
Current options:

pid = b0bbc6q5
preset = click_folder_rename

INFO: Deleted PVR search 'ONCE_b0bbc6q5'
-==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==-

Is it because I've asked the preset to call a bash script that this happens and I can only run one bash script command, or do I have to queue them in the commandtv option instead. Or can I not do that either?

This is the relevant line from the options :-
get_iplayer --prefs-show
Options in '/home/xbox/.get_iplayer/options'
       commandtv = /home/xbox/Old_Scripts/find_mp4.sh

  Why can't I find The Musketeers with a search in Web PVR?
Posted by: ericmarcus - 17-07-2018, 07:02 PM - Forum: Windows General Help & Support - Replies (3)

I'm on version 3.14.0 on Windows 10 1803.

I see that "The Musketeers" is still available in the Drama category and I'd like to be able to search and then queue the episodes for download.

However, when I search for them by show name "Musketeers" there's nothing found.

If I copy the URL link for a single episode and paste it into "Quick URL" then I can then queue or record it but I can't get a list of episodes, tick them all and then record them.

Any way around this??????

Thanks!

I have no idea what that url refers to
I upgraded to Ver 3.16 and I am getting this error appearing when I download programs. the programs themselves download but each one brings up this error while waiting to download using the PVR scheduler.
It appears to try 6 times before downloading the TV shows and 4 times for radio shows
I upgraded from 3.14 to 3.16, I am wondering if perhaps I should have gone via 3.15 first.

  Infinite Monkey Cage TV special not broadcast by BBC so not found with search

Have recently tried to get this programme from get_iplayer, but even though it's on the iPlayer web site, it doesn't appear in get_iPlayer.

Searching by name and pid (including the "Radio" option) returns nothing ????

  MP4 conversion in 3.16 taking a long time?
Posted by: DarrenHill - 13-07-2018, 10:56 AM - Forum: Any Other Business - Replies (3)

I just bumped my system (Windows 10 1803 build) from 3.14 to 3.16, and downloaded "The Rise and Fall of Nokia" (PID b0b9kj80). The download worked, but the MP4 conversion from the original ts file seemed to take much longer than I've previously seen for similar size/duration program downloads?

Just using the fairly standard command prompt download ("get_iplayer --get nokia" in this case), nothing I've not done numerous times before. I tried it twice (using --force) and both did the same, fairly normal download and then took ages to convert.

From what I can see from the release notes nothing was changed in the ffmpeg/conversion side of things, but I wanted to confirm if anyone else has seen something like this. I accept it could be my machine getting tied up with something else in the background (it's an old netbook so not exactly a powerhouse, plus who knows what Win10 may be doing quietly behind the scenes), it just surprised me.

If logs etc are needed please let me know.

  How do I remove v3.00 manual install after upgrading from PPA on Linux Mint?

Hello,
I cannot get my upgraded version to work, try though I did to apply what was said here to resolve the problem.
PPA added, version 3.16 installed over 3.0 and still it is 3.0 which is running when I try to use get_iplayer:

  Cannot download TV programmes outside UK
Posted by: danj - 09-07-2018, 02:21 AM - Forum: General Topics - Replies (1)

Using get_iplayer 3.16-homebrew,

I apologize if this has been addressed in an older thread. I'm able to download TV programs from ITV but *not* from BBC iPlayer. I receive the following syslog messages when attempting to download any program from BBC/iPlayer (below is a small snippet):

ERROR: Response: 500 Can't connect to http://www.bbc.co.uk:443
WARNING: Could not download programme metadata from https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b873nn.json

I debugged this @ network layer and the TCP connection is stuck at time_wait to remote BBC/iPlayer server- see snippet:

At first it would seem like a firewall is blocking this but I have established connections to other services on this port and I have no issues with ITV. Anyone else seeing this issue? Is this a known problem? I read the following, and I'm not sure if it's relevant:

  Cannot download PID b05zktnf (Law in Action 2015-05-25)
Posted by: Budget_Hunk - 08-07-2018, 12:43 PM - Forum: General Topics - Replies (2)

Version: get_iplayer 3.16.0
OS: Windows 10 64bit
Command Used: get_iplayer --pid-recursive --pid b006tgy1

I am attempted to download all 112 episodes of the Radio 4 series 'Law in Action'.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006tgy1

To do this I entered the command, above, and get_iplayer proceeded to download the most recent 37 episodes. A total of 112 are available on iplayer. The 38/112, Courts on Trial, wouldn't download and gave this output

get_iplayer Output:

WARNING: No media streams found for requested programme versions and recording modes.
WARNING: The programme may no longer be available - check the iPlayer site.
WARNING: If you are outside the UK, check with the provider to find out if your VPN/VPS/Smart DNS/web proxy has been blocked.

I was unsure what the problem was. So I attempted to download the individual episode (38/112; https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05zktnf) itself, but generated the same error, below:

get_iplayer Output:

WARNING: The programme may no longer be available - check the iPlayer site.

This is odd considering that I am able to stream the episode with my web browser (Chrome). I live in the UK and do not use a VPN.

Does anybody know the source of the error? Are episodes over a certain age unable to work with get_iplayer?

Much thanks in advance!

  --history --before=720 doesn't list purgeable files (requires search term)
Posted by: alansh - 07-07-2018, 09:06 AM - Forum: Windows General Help & Support - Replies (2)

I have changed the default folder where files get saved from my desktop\iplayer recordings to D:\Getiplayer. I have done this using the field in the recordings option of the web pvr manager.

Back in the desktop/iplayer recordings folder was one file which has been there for ages. Whenever I recorded something I always got the warning messages as below:

WARNING: You have programmes over 30 days old that should be deleted.
WARNING: Find them with 'get_iplayer --history --before=720'
WARNING: or use the 'Recordings' tab in the Web PVR Manager.
WARNING: Use 'get_iplayer --purge-files' to delete all programmes over 30 days old.
WARNING: Use 'get_iplayer --prefs-add --no-purge' to suppress this warning.

When I tried to use the find command, it came back with no files over 720 hours old.

When I deleted the old file in the original directory, the warning messages went away.

So, it seems there is something in the warning check that is still looking into the original folder to find olde files. but the --history command is looking in the correct place.

As I said in the title, nothing to worry about, but if you have time, maybe it could be tidyied up.

cheers

Alan
