  How do I pass a filename to shell script in --commandtv from GiP command line?
Posted by: toner_cloud - 30-10-2019, 12:53 PM - Forum: Linux & Unix Troubleshooting - Replies (7)

I'm running v3.22 on a Ubuntu 18 box with all the updates and trying to pass a filename to a bash script. This works, all day every day :-
commandtv = /home/xbox/Old_Scripts/find_mp4.sh "<filename>"

but I'm now trying to amend that to use a *slightly* different command for films and if I do a 'set -x' in the bash script, the problem is shown as :-
+ echo Filename being passed is ''

The parameters I'm using are almost the same, viz :-
get_iplayer --pvr-queue --pid=p07rq86b --commandtv=/home/xbox/Old_Scripts/films.sh "<filename>"

So where am I going wrong with this?

I should add that all I've done is copy the find_mp4.sh file and amend the filename and the storage locations, nothing else so I can't see why the command should fail to pass the filename.

Can somebody help this bear of little brain to spot the deliberate mistake please?

  BBC Radio Wales programmes not being indexed
Posted by: mjones1778 - 27-10-2019, 04:57 PM - Forum: Windows General Help & Support - Replies (1)

H-
Version - get_iplayer 3.22.0-MSWin32

there have been similar threads / issues flagged int he past for this issue  - historically on https://www.mail-archive.com/get_iplayer...06671.html
and on here  - https://forums.squarepenguin.co.uk/thread-276.html

Very few of the radio shows for Wales will appear in my cache other than BBC Sport Wales for the rugby.
Tried updating cache and full install.

get_iplayer --type=radio ".*" lists all other BBC radio stations but hardly anything for Wales.  From the current cache only program m0009qqr

One of the programs I listen to is Money For Nothing - latest episode on BBC Sounds is https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0009r7g

Also tried git on my windows 7 laptop, ut thattoo has thesame issue trying to pull Radio Wales programs.

Is this a bug or something I'm doing wrong?  I only add programs to search for in PVR.

Attached XL shows my cache.  Local programmes have been downloaded, so could be that Radio Wales have changed something as happened a few years ago?

Thanks in advance

  Search for "Alexi Sayle" returns INFO: 0 Matching programmes

Hi
I'm a noob so apologies for not being too clued on using command line.
I've updated to 3.2.2.0 and unable to search for an item
I run get iplayer, states "INFO: 0 Matching programmes"
Then Web PVR Manager, loads up with a list, when I search for a show I know has been on through the week, (0 Programmes) "Alexi Sayle"
I've tried refreshing Cache both on the app itself and via a search string with no luck.
I'm sure I'm probably being a numpty, any chance someone could set me straight please?

Thanks

  suggestion when saving searches in web PVR
Posted by: dgrainge - 22-09-2019, 05:47 PM - Forum: Feature Requests - Replies (2)

Looking at TV schedules, I noted another TV program scheduled for tonight: proms again on BBC4. OK I though, I can get round that by searching for channel BBC Radio 3 rather than program type radio.
I created a new search. I saved it. The new search simply replaced the old one which actually was probably what I needed to do but ...
It's possible someone might want 2 searches using similar criteria - but maybe on different channels.
My suggestion is that get_iplayer should detect the existing search, and create a new one with a different name e.g.
prom_name_radio (existing search)
prom1_name_radio (new search)
Subsequently, both would appear in the PVR list, allowing the user to review / edit / delete / retain one or the other.
Best if get_iplayer doesn't silently over-write existing searches? It won't over-write existing downloads unless forced. What do you think?

  BBC "Sounds" replacing iPlayer radio
Posted by: GerryHill - 16-09-2019, 11:59 AM - Forum: Any Other Business - Replies (1)

I use get_iPlayer for radio as much as for TV, so I was horrified to find that the BBC is switching off iPlayer radio and replacing it with the cluttered "BBC Sounds".
Is there any hope that get_iPlayerr can be adapted to rescue radio programmes from this mess, please?

  New install: needed cache rebuild to find radio programme from previous week
Posted by: LiloLee - 16-09-2019, 09:31 AM - Forum: Windows Troubleshooting - Replies (2)

Hi
New laptop Win10, new install of 3.22.

When using the PVR, I refreshed the cache it shows programs from today only. Is there a way I can get list going back in time?

For instance I like this show Soundscapes with Stephen McCauley on Radio Ulster from 11th Sept https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00087rm and would like to get it.

Regards Lee

  --no-command[-[tv|radio]]
Posted by: User 04 - 11-09-2019, 05:47 PM - Forum: Feature Requests - Replies (1)

Running get_iplayer 3.22.0-MSWin32 from a Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (Version 6.1.7601) CMD shell.

Hi,

Can the options:
--no-command
--no-command-tv
--no-command-radio
be incorporated into get_iplayer, please?

From get_iplayer's point of view these could be considered boolean options since it will either be running a user command or not running a user command. Hence, it could be argued that they should behave like other boolean options and allow the "no-" prefix as specified in the documentation.

I have --command-tv and --command-radio in my preferences to do some post-download processing, but today I had an occasion to not require them and discovered the "no-" versions are not available.

Admittedly, I've had these options in my preferences for quite a while and this is the first time I'd have made use of a --no-command-tv. So, these are not features I'd be often using. Also, I got around it by using a blank --command-tv on the command line to override the one in my preferences:

Code:
get_iplayer …--command-tv ""…
(It hasn't escaped my notice that this empty command, with the space and two double-quotes requires the exact same number of keystrokes as prefixing the option with the characters "no-".)

Thanks.
