J [...] be more explicit in the comment so that people can search for exemple for Sky and find this particular plugin, otherwise many people will miss it.

There is no hard coding in this plugin. Adding a comment about "Sky" would be hard coding. The plugin is for any OpenTV provider (that there are conf files for) and adding a hard coded message about "Sky" would be misleading. The plugin only shows providers on configured satellites. i.e if you only have 28.2E configured it will only show "Sky Uk OpenTV (28.2)", so if you want to know what providers are available on you setup just look in the plugin.


BTW, if you are talking about the description in the plugins download menu, as far as I know that comes from the .bb file and is nothing to do with the plugin itself.



Indeed I was talking about the description of the plugin so that a search with:  opkg list | grep -i "sky" will retrieve this plugin.

Most use don't know which EPG encoding system is used by there broadcaster but they at least know the broadcaster name. ;-)

Open EPG Plugin has a kit and support thread at OoZooN as all my other plugins and I'm not anybody's friend or darling or whatsover.


Putting something like Sky in a Plugin name or description is idiotic - unless you enjoy Tickling Tigers.
