[INVALID] Cannot find web-only ChuckleVision episodes with Web PVR search
#1
Hey all, new to this but seem to have sussed how to "record" from iplayer but one show in particular I am struggling finding on fet_iplayer web pvr. Have literally gone through the list and cant find it, have tried searching for the episode name and the show name but still no finds. I went ahead and updated the cache also with no luck

Have checked on iplayer and the show in question is available to 17:00 05 November 2018 and also played the show on iplayer to ensure it was working.

I am at a bit of a dead end currently not sure what I am doing wrong as I have been able to grab other shows just fine and find them just fine

Sorry but my mind reading skills are not working too well since I had to return my time machine ;-)

How about telling us the name and episode number of the programme and perhaps the URL on BBC iPlayer?

Ahhhhh yes that would help. Chucklevision and with regards to episode number - any of Season 8 (this is the only season that is available)

Im thinking I have done something wrong as all im seeing is the likes of bbc 1, bbc 2 not the internet only channel like bbc 3

You say Season 8 is available, not according to what I'm looking at... unless I'm looking in the wrong place... but then you didn't give me a URL, as I requested.

Searching on "Chucklevision" within the BBC iPlayer, I ended up at the following URL:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/shows/chucklevision#episodes

According to this there appear to be six episodes currently available from Season 21.

If you right click on each episode in turn, you can save the URL. So, for example, "Cops and Robbers" is at https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/cbbc/episode/b00phvly.

I don't use the pvr but if you open a command prompt and type:
get_iplayer --PID https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/cbbc/episode/b00phvly
or even:
get_iplayer --PID b00phvly
you should see the download taking place. Repeat this process for each programme.

My understanding is that internet only programmes can only be downloaded using the programme PID. I wouldn't have a clue how to do this using the PVR (If indeed you can) as I never use the PVR. I'm a command prompt sorta guy!

If you can point me towards the Season 8 episodes then I'll have a look at those for you.

Have fun!

Edit - sorry about the info..... if you click on "see more results" in https://www.bbc.co.uk/search?q=ChuckleVi...duct&scope= you will see further episodes.
