I am considering doing something like this. Using the example perl script to grab the SD lineup, then another perl script to massage it. In particular I want to grab the actors out of the show descriptions.
For example, if it is something like:
A lonely drifter (Jason Alexander) finds the love of his life (Courteney Cox) in an unlikely place after getting skin cancer.
it might instead say
A lonely drifter finds the love of his life in an unlikely pla... Jason Alexander, Courteney Cox
(I have no idea the actual limits, that's just an example).
And then use the xmltv import function of WiRNS rather than SD directly.
This would be written in perl because it's good for that kind of thing. By the way my favorite implementation of perl for windows is found in the cygwin system.
