Feature TV schedule, upcoming and past episodes

 
41 supporters

It would be nice to have a TV schedule for each series, maybe different tab display that would show upcoming and past show. One more thing, maybe someway it could alert you if you are missing current episodes

New Note*** 5/9/11 It would be nice to know if a current show has been canceled, I am not sure if there is any way to get this information while the show is still airing but it would be nice and if this could also be incorporated into the schedule somehow

This would really be nice,one more thing this would allow the user to see if the show had been canceled or not

i like this idea… maybe show the missing episodes in the same list, but use some kind of placeholder icon to show that it’s not really available for watching.

No more wishes but I love this idea so +1 for me.

 
 
  • Created:almost 3 years ago

This would be fantastic.

Plus 1 for me! Woot!

I added my wish to this. Would be great if the upcoming episodes could also stream the sneak peek for that episode too. My wife always hits the net as soon as we have finished watching a good episode of a show to view the sneak peek for next week.

From where would this information be obtained?

 
 
  • Created:almost 3 years ago

How did I miss this, would be great idea if possible.

 
 
  • Created:almost 3 years ago

I'd like to see this as well. I have missed episodes a couple of times, and got confused when watching the episode, until I realised I had missed one

Really good idea, particularly treasons placeholder idea… would be a godsend for the completists amongst us….

+1 from me too…
This would be AWESOME… No more wishes at present, but would definitely add one to this if I had another…

thetvdb.com gives you this info…

Lets keep this going… adding the feature would bring so much more to mediabrowser

This has got my wish, what a great idea!

 
 
  • Created:almost 3 years ago

I added a wish to it! :) Wonder where the metadata would come from to find out if the show is cancelled?

Placeholders are a good idea. Or when the next episode will air. I know that wikipedia has the information on shows and air times, but who trusts wikipedia?

 
  • Never thought about air time. Might be harder to do with people living in different countries. – gillmacca almost 3 years ago
  • I think TheTVDB shows you if its cancelled… The application SickBeard pulls its information from TheTVDB.com and that knows whether a show is cancelled or not… – adgrimes almost 3 years ago
  • At least maybe have the date that the next episode airs… Again, SickBeard is able to view this information, I believe it pulls this info from TheTVDB… – adgrimes almost 3 years ago

Pulled a wish off one of my plugin requests for this… I'd LOVE to see this happen… Up to 21 supporters now!

Get EBR over here, he makes dreams like this come true – this would be a super plugin. Ebr, we need you!!!!

 
  • Sorry, but this is top priority: Performanceebr almost 3 years ago
  • Can’t really argue with with better performance, is this project something you would think about implementing in the feature? – ksullivan86 almost 3 years ago
  • Possibly, but no promises. – ebr almost 3 years ago

That’s got my wish. Would make my life a easier.

Just saw this new plug in available for beta testing. I'll give it a try because it looks like it may track tv episodes.

New Plugin Announcement: follw.it (beta)

 
  • It has a schedule feature on the website, so I guess it would be possible to pull the data from there… – adgrimes almost 3 years ago
  • Perhaps you should post the request on the follw.it thread, since it’s in beta it might be something the dev would consider. – daavid almost 3 years ago
  • Looks like Travis is already considering the schedule functionality! :) follw.it pluginRiccardo almost 3 years ago

+1 Added my wish!!

 
 
  • Created:almost 3 years ago

+1 for me.

As far as where to get the information, it is all available on TVRage, though I’m not sure how much of it can be pulled through the API.

On the website itself, the last aired episode is either tagged as “PREV:” or “FINAL” if the show has been cancelled. There is also a “Next:” entry if the next airing is known. Somehow running an “all-episodes-in-season” metadata pull would make it easy to compare which aired episodes might be missing.

Is this one still on the radar I think a format similar to how sickbeard shows up and coming episodes would be pretty cool.

 
 
  • Created:over 2 years ago

Ok so where do I get this data from – Neo is ready to roll…

 
  • I am not sure I was assuming thetvdb.com let me know if you would like me to look into anything – jd11 over 2 years ago
  • I meant in the MB core wheres this info at? – soultaker over 2 years ago
  • Nowhere. We don’t retrieve or store this information as it is outside the scope of what MB was designed to do (present your collection). Not saying it couldn’t be done but it hasn’t been. – ebr over 2 years ago

I love this idea.

But Soultaker, if you’re going to add this to neo, one idea I have is to have a guide-style view for ALL shows in my collection. I think the poster just wants to see it for one show.

I’d like to be see what episodes have aired recently so that I can catch up, and also what’s going to be airing soon.

Sickbeard does a really nice job of this. It uses theTvDb. See attached images.

Since I’ve just been granted a wish I’m voting for this. I’m still using sickbeard as my tv-guide of sorts (discussed above), but what I’d really like is to be able to sit down in front of the tv and view them within media browser.

Shifted one of my wishes over from something else… This would be an excellent feature addition…

 
 
  • Created:over 2 years ago

got my vote and wish!

Thanks Alan!

Just to be clear, I don’t think this has to be an antiquated TV-Guide style layout. I agree with what EBR said in another thread about the whole point of on-demand is what you want, when you want. We don’t need to go back to the old days.

That being said, a lot of us have shows that we watch on a weekly basis, and it would be nice to have a way to see what’s aired recently so that we can catch up on unseen episodes. Relying on the RAL doesn’t quite cut it. If there was also a way to display upcoming episodes, that would be icing on the cake because it would help me plan what I’m going to be watching that week.

I still feel like this idea can be merged with:

MediaBrowser TV - Concept Discussion

The tv schedule could just be one view within that feature. I don’t think the presence of upcoming episodes is enough to keep them apart.

I am not sure if I have done the right thing – I have posted a new feature request asking for the same feature but directly relating to a new view in MBTV as per the suggestion from Luke (above): MBTV – Schedule of recently aired and upcoming TV shows

I’ve been working on something recently for my Destiny theme which will get the upcoming TV shows based off all continuing series. It’s still pretty early on in the development stage I just have the basic scroller done displaying some information (haven’t had time to add all the frills), but in the meantime I have a couple of screens, any feedback of additional information you would like to see would be appreciated…

  • Man this is great. Ya know I’ve used neo for so long, I only just started trying out acendancy and destiny, which are freakin amazing pieces of work! I use amulet remote and sometimes destiny doesn’t ok it when I switch from on library to another without skipping back to the ehs…not sure why…doesn’t matter, only happens sometimes when MC crashes. Having this coming tv show list would be great addition. – chef over 1 year ago

Just a couple of months ago tobias tobin and I worked really hard on a great amulet plugin that spoke back your favorite tv show if your tv series matched the rss feed from tvrage.com just though id share in case anyone was looking for an rss th listed the nights tv and the next day and wanted to set up some kind of alert in media browser. May come in handy. :)
