DESCRIPTION
       Grab TV listings	for several channels available in Finland. The data
       comes from various sources, e.g.	www.telkku.com.	The grabber relies on
       parsing HTML, so	it might stop working when the web page	layout is
       changed.

       You need	to run "tv_grab_fi --configure"	first to create	the channel
       configuration for your setup. Subsequently runs of "tv_grab_fi" will
       grab the	latest data, process them and produce XML data on the standard
       output.

COMMANDS
       NONE    Grab mode.

       --capabilities
	       Show the	capabilities this grabber supports. See	also
	       <http://wiki.xmltv.org/index.php/XmltvCapabilities>.

       --configure
	       Generate	the configuration file by asking the users which
	       channels	to grab.

       --description
	       Print the description for this grabber.

       --help|-h|-?
	       Show this help page.

       --list-channels
	       Fetch all available channels from the various sources and write
	       them to the standard output.

       --version
	       Show the	version	of this	grabber.

GENERIC	OPTIONS
       --cache FILE
	       File name to cache the fetched HTML data	in. This speeds	up
	       subsequent runs using the same data.

       --gui [OPTION]
	       Enable the graphical user interface. If you don't specify
	       OPTION then XMLTV will automatically choose the best available
	       GUI. Allowed values are:

	       Term
		   Terminal output with	a progress bar

	       TermNoProgressBar
		   Terminal output without progress bar

	       Tk  Tk-based GUI

       --quiet Suppress	any progress messages to the standard output.

CONFIGURE MODE OPTIONS
       --config-file FILE
	       File name to write the configuration to.

	       Default is $HOME/.xmltv/tv_grab_fi.conf.

GRAB MODE OPTIONS
       --config-file FILE
	       File name to read the configuration from.

	       Default is $HOME/.xmltv/tv_grab_fi.conf.

       --days "N"
	       Grab "N"	days of	TV data.

	       Default is 14 days.

       --no-randomize
	       Grab TV data in deterministic order, i.e. first fetch channel
	       1, days 1 to N, then channel 2, and so on.

	       Default is to use a random access pattern. If you only grab TV
	       data from one source then the randomizing is a no-op.

       --offset	"N"
	       Grab TV data starting at	"N" days in the	future.

	       Default is 0, i.e. today.

       --output	FILE
	       Write the XML data to FILE instead of the standard output.

CONFIGURATION FILE SYNTAX
       The configuration file is line oriented,	each line can contain one
       command.	 Empty lines and everything after the "#" comment character is
       ignored.	 Supported commands are:

       channel ID NAME
	       Grab information	for this channel. "ID" depends on the source,
	       "NAME" is ignored and forwarded as is to	the XMLTV output file.
	       This information	can be automatically generated using the
	       grabber in the configuration mode.

       series description NAME
	       If a programme title matches "NAME" then	the first sentence of
	       the description,	i.e. everything	up to the first	period ("."),
	       question	mark ("?") or exclamation mark ("!"), is removed from
	       the description and is used as the name of the episode.

       series title NAME
	       If a programme title contains a colon (":") then	the grabber
	       checks if the left-hand side of the colon matches "NAME". If it
	       does then the left-hand side is used as programme title and the
	       right-hand side as the name of the episode.

       title map "FROM"	'TO'
	       If the programme	title starts with the string "FROM" then
	       replace this part with the string "TO". The strings must	be
	       enclosed	in single quotes ("'") or double quotes	("""). The
	       title mapping occurs before the "series"	command	processing.

       title strip parental level
	       At the beginning	of 2012	some programme descriptions started to
	       include parental	levels at the end of the title,	e.g. "(S)".
	       With this command all parental levels will be removed from the
	       titles automatically. This removal occurs before	the title
	       mapping.

BUGS
       The channels are	identified by channel number rather than the RFC2838
       form recommended	by the XMLTV DTD.
