Language selection for xmltv input is not supported yet, I might implement
it one of these days (or some other developer in germany ?).
The reason you don't see your title is because nxtvepg seems to violate the
The <desc> field is the only one were formatting is ignored, so you can write
a valid description
and still end up with "this is a valid description".
The title however is written in your xml file as
this is the title
which ends up as a three-line title (blankline, " this is the title",
blankline) and only the first line is shown by mythtv, and is a blank line :-(
I did write you a perl script to verify my findings, just run it with
nxtvfix < originalxml > newxml
and the <title> tag is stripped and put in line.
AFAIK if this fixes it you should complain with nxtvepg, I don't think it
appropriate to implement a bugfix for them in mythtv.
