Hello Carsten,

it's good to hear that somebody is updating these scripts/programs for 
the new TVTV pages. Personaly I preferred the "old" format of the pages, 
but if we can participate for free on a semi-commercial website, I don't 

My question: Are there any plans to support also the extended 
information like actor, director, year of first appearence, etc? We can 
get these infos just by setting "jl_format=3", but it's not decoded by 
epg2timer.cxx. I can try to create a patch for that. But if somebody 
else is just working on that, then I prefer to wait for that solution 
because that might lead to a faster result. I am realy interested in a 
solution for that because I don't like to loose this information, if 
it's there. I use all the vdr.info for a content description in the 
menue of my DVDs.

But anyway, thanks for this script/program bundle. I use it now for a 
long time...
