NAME
       tv_grab_it_dvb -	Grab TV	listings for Italy from	the DVB-S stream

SYNOPSIS
       tv_grab_it_dvb --help

       tv_grab_it_dvb [--adapter N] [--config-file FILE] --configure

       tv_grab_it_dvb [--config-file FILE] [--output FILE] [--days N]
		      [--offset	N] [--quiet] [--verbose] [--adapter N]
		      [--no-cache-summaries]

DESCRIPTION
	Output TV listings for several channels	as provided by the DVB-S stream	from Skyitalia.
	This grabber is	based on the work of Lukkinosat	for everything concerning the decoding of data.
	The tuning part	is mostly a port to perl of the	relevant parts in szap.
	This is	an early release and should be considered beta quality.

       First run tv_grab_it_dvb	--configure to choose which channels you want
       to download. Then running tv_grab_it with no arguments will output
       listings	in XML format to standard output.

       --configure Prompt for which channels, and writes the configuration
       file.

       --adapter Use this adapter for tuning and grabbing. Default is 0.

       --config-file FILE Set the name of the configuration file, the default
       is ~/.xmltv/tv_grab_it_dvb.conf.	 This is the file written by
       --configure and read when grabbing.

       --gui OPTION Use	this option to enable a	graphical interface to be
       used.  OPTION may be 'Tk', or left blank	for the	best available choice.
       Additional allowed values of OPTION are 'Term' for normal terminal
       output (default)	and 'TermNoProgressBar'	to disable the use of
       XMLTV::ProgressBar.

       --output	FILE write to FILE rather than standard	output.

       --days N	Grab N days. Since we cannot decide how	much data we get we
       simply throw away everything above this number of days.

       --offset	N Start	N days in the future.  The default is to start from
       today.

       --quiet Suppress	the progress messages normally written to standard
       error.

       --no-cache-summaries Disables caching of	summaries in the file
       summaries.cache It is advised to	leave this option on as	the summaries
       part of the data	stream can be very different between grabs, and	you
       might get blank descriptions.

       --verbose Prints	out verbose information	useful for debugging.  Repeat
       (up to 4x) for more verbosiness

       --min-noname This is a hack. As I have a	situation where	there are a
       few channels whose name I cannot	find (usually 3	or 4) you can sat the
       number of channel that can be left nameless. Try	using this if the
       grabber keep on running forever.

       --version Show the version of the grabber.

       --help Print a help message and exit.

CAVEATS
       This grabber relies on the linux	dvb api, and therefore does not	run
       under windows.

EXAMPLES
       tv_grab_it_dvb --adapter	2 --configure
	   configures tv_grab_it_dvb using adapter number 2

       tv_grab_it_dvb --adapter	2 --quiet
	   grabs the full data without displaying anything (useful in cron
	   scripts)

SEE ALSO
       xmltv(5).
