What Needs Doing For the OzTiVo Community?

Here is a list of things that need doing on a weekly basis, or less frequently.

Uploading of TV Guide Data

TV guide "slices" are made for the Australian OzTiVos every day. Most of the data has to entered in by hand. If you are willing to help with this task, see Create Guide Data Using Station Day Editor to find details of how to go about it.

Cleaning and Augmenting The Guide Database

The guide data that is uploaded goes into a Guide Database. We need volunteers to go through the database, get rid of any cruft, and add extra information such as episode descriptions, TV ratings and genres.

The genre (or category) of each program affects the OzTiVo Suggestions as well as your ability to search for different types of programs.

Keeping the Twiki Up to Date

If you see information in the twiki that is out of date or incorrect, please update it so that other people don't get wrong information. If you are new to OzTiVo, then it's also a good idea to e-mail the mailing list about the change, so that others can verify the details for you.

Adding and Fixing IR Codes

We rely heavily on OzTiVo users to capture codes for IR devices that are currently unknown by the OzTiVo. There is a IR Database of new codes which you can add to. An IR device is a Video, DVD player or Set top box. The Tivo transmits the IR code for these devices to change channels on the IR device.

For details on how to capture new IR codes, see:

Creating New Regional Lineups

We now have the ability to create lineups (lists of channels in a particular area) for anywhere in Australia. However, not all regions are represented yet. If you live in a region which is not covered, read through the README file in http://www.oztivo.net/oztivofiles/headend_config/ and look at the examples from other regions, and create a suitable lineup file. Then send an e-mail to the OzTiVo mailing list (oztivo@www.oztivo.net.removethisspamstopper) where one of the volunteers will assist you in getting these updates into the OzTiVo Emulator.

Anything Else?

If you can think of anything else that needs doing, please put the details here with appropriate links to other twiki entries.
