Daniel - would you be able to tell us what information is available in
the program guide data from IceTV. I think a lot of the info in the
Aussie guides is missing compared to what folks in other countries get
- eg correct program categories (eg Movie, Current Affairs etc),
repeat, classification rating (eg PG, MA etc), subtitles, HD or SD,
programids, season etc etc. As the info is free it's understandable
that this info is missing.
Since IceTV are charging over $150/year for the data it would be nice
to know that this information is provided.
