Switching of Radio Time data to Atlas

Postby kevinp » Mon Apr 15, 2013 11:13 pm

Metabroadcast have said that they will be shutting down the current XMLTV data feed in favour of their ATLAS system. Are there any plan to update the XMLTV GUI program and RT grabber to use the new setup?

If not, does anyone know of an alternative that will use it?

Thanks,
Kevin.

Various topics at https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgr ... c/atlasapi indicates they expect users to move from the .dat files to the new version 4.0 ATLAS API and will then retire the .dat files. Back in July 2012 they were saying it would be 'soon' and once all or the majority of users were using ATLAS.

Subsequent posts have said they are now not adding or amending channels as the .dat file setup is 'deprecated' . See Topic Radio Times: Movie Mix and Russia Today

The following is also worth a look http://old.nabble.com/The-future-of-the ... 00089.html

Latest talk is it will cease in the autumn. I can only assume that RT didn't have a requirement for them to maintain the .dat service for a minimum period.

I'll probably get round to it eventually but it wont be soon, I don't think there is any rush though as this rumour is now over a year old and the RT data is still working fine
