'starrating' misbehavior or personal dislike since v5.2

Dear all!

I am running webgrab+plus for two years for Emby Premium on Debian Linux - always happy with the combination. :-)
The site used is "tvdigital.de" which works fine for me. I've update to v5.2 lately and after some days I recognize that I lost some important information, which will be delivered by the <star-rating> tag. As Emby does not use several tags like <actor>, <star-rating> and so on I've used "rex" to merge that Info into the <description> tag. Worked fine.

This is the rex.config.xml line which did the trick:
<desc>{'description(, )'. }{\n\t¤ Country: 'country(, )'. }{\n\t¤ Produced in: 'productiondate(, )'. }{\n\t¤ Category: 'category(, )'. }{\n\tProducer: 'producer(, )'. }{\n\t¤ Actors: 'actor/a+(, )'. }{\n\t¤ Director: 'director(, )'. }{\n\t¤ Presenter: 'presenter(, )'. }{\n\t¤ Writer: 'writer(, )'. }{\n\t¤ Composer: 'composer(, )'. }{\n\t¤ Rating: 'starrating/a+(, )'. }</desc>

tvdigital.de uses <star-rating> with several "system" values:
<star-rating system="Humor">
<value>0/3</value>
</star-rating>
<star-rating system="Tipp">
<value>0/1</value>
</star-rating>
<star-rating system="Sex">
<value>0/3</value>
</star-rating>
<star-rating system="Spannung">
<value>0/3</value>
</star-rating>
<star-rating system="Action">
<value>0/3</value>
</star-rating>
<star-rating system="Romantik">
<value>0/3</value>
</star-rating>

With v5.1.4-beta the results were as aspected in the new <description> tag:

<programme start="20240618041500 +0200" stop="20240618051500 +0200" channel="3sat">
<title lang="de">Heimatsound Concerts</title>

<star-rating system="Action">

</star-rating>
<star-rating system="Romantik">

</star-rating>
</programme>

With v5.2 the results were useless in the new <description> tag:

<programme start="20240618005500 +0200" stop="20240618021500 +0200" channel="3sat">
<title lang="de">Heimatsound Concerts</title>
<desc lang="de">Musik aus der Region ... ,

<category lang="de">Musik</category>
<category lang="de">Konzertreihe</category>
<icon src="https://epg-image.tvdigital.de/778x436/17738122.jpg" />
<country lang="de">A/D</country>
<star-rating system="Humor">
<value>0/10</value>
</star-rating>
</programme>

For details please see attached files. Files:
1) rex.config.xml => rex config
2) WGepguide.xml => shortened file after grabbing
3) WGRepguide-5.1.4_beta.xml => file after rex with v5.1.4-beta (correct results)
4) WGRepguide-5.2.xml => file after rex with v5.2 (useless 'starrationg' results!)

I've tested a lot, but nothing brought the old behavior back. Any ideas how to get the results like in versions before v5.2?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Thank you.

And I just recognized that with v5.1.4-beta rex need ONE minute to process the 27MB grab file:

[ Debug ] 17913 shows in 40 channels
[ Debug ] 0 updated shows
[ Debug ] 17913 new shows added

With v5.2 rex needed about 2 hours!

Done. I zipped the xmltv source file as it was over 20MB in size.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
I think the problem is caused by the points within .... row . I tested and after deleting the points within .... REX worked fine. Here is the correctly working row:

{'description(, )'}{\n\t¤Country: 'country/a(, )'}{\n\t¤Year : 'productiondate(, )'}{\n\t¤Category: 'category(, )'}{\n\tProducer: 'producer(, )'} and so on.

I hope this will help you.

I wonder what (other?) problem removing the .. in the config line solved for swmathe. Can you explain that ?

None of my problems at least, if you asked me. :-) I've just checked with v5.2 to be save!
BTW and I don't know if it is relevant:

rex output of v5.2 creates a "," after most lines!
" Das Magazin bietet Hintergrundinformationen, Porträts und Gespräche zu aktuellen und brisanten Fragen.,
¤ Country: A/CH/D,
¤ Produced in: 2024,
¤ Category: Musik, Kulturmagazin
¤ Presenter: Nina Mavis Brunner
¤ Starrating: 0/10(system Humor)

rex output of v5.1.4-beta does look cleaner
" Das Magazin bietet Hintergrundinformationen, Porträts und Gespräche zu aktuellen und brisanten Fragen.
¤ Country: A/CH/D
¤ Produced in: 2024
¤ Category: Musik, Kulturmagazin
¤ Presenter: Nina Mavis Brunner
¤ Starrating: 0/3(system Humor), 0/3(system Romantik), 0/3(system Action), 0/3(system Spannung), 0/3(system Sex)

This issue is solved in V5.2.1 beta . There is also a fix of the rather slow processing of episode-num conversion.
