Sure I knew about this plugin but for non-German speakers it's a
problem as it has no English documentation and seems to grab episode
information from eplists (which are also all in German) rather than
using the info found in the XMLTV listings. I'm also not sure how
often it runs etc.

If someone would do an English write up and explain what features it
has and doesn't have, that would be excellent :)
