Oversight Jukebox r571-stable - lordy - 02-23-2009 08:55 PM
The latest BETA of Oversight is available from CSI or NMT Installer
This version (r571-stable) should have
- tv box set view (note changing titles do not appear in Gaya)
- most fixes for recent changes to scanning
After the recent spate of bugfix releases I'm mindful that people may have been put off with downloading and installing buggy versions. Even if the bugs didnt affect them, they see constant alerts in CSI. So from now on there will be two types of releases:
Stable releases will have the "-stable" suffix in the version. They will either be:
- releases that have come through a beta cycle OR
- have emergency fixes to serious bugs (bugs that affect most people most of the time)
Beta releases will have the "-testing" suffix in the version. New functionality will be proven here before it appears in a stable version.
Beta releases will be available via the project download page, and possibly the CSI as a separate download to -stable.
Oversights main strengths are :
Main weakness at the moment is looks, but this will improve over time. I may even add reflection one day just for fun It is the low maintenance and configuration overhead that really sets Oversight apart from other Jukeboxes.
For more info see http://code.google.com/p/oversight/
The Oversight Roadmap is:
1) Better Search
2) Transmission Support
3) Functional GUI changes -
eg various dropdown filters
GUI NFO editing + rescan
4) TV Box Set Support
5) Nip&Tuck - Skin Facelift.
6) Other languages.
Any well defined repeatable issues are now best raised as issues with attachments.

great really looking forward on that

Does the GUI config give the ability to change the initial scan location. I don't want it to scan the entire drive as I use Oversight more as a DVR, and I use YAMJ for my static movie collection.
Can I change the default scan location to be "Share/Download"?

Here are the current catalog.sh settings : (description text will change slightly)

This looks really wonderful compared to the old gui, it was confusing me.
But I would like to know if the following is possible.
I download tv-shows in the /downloads folder and store my movies/shows as follow
Is it possible when i download lost for example through tvnzb and goes into the download folder that this script will automacily unpack it and also moves it into the lost folder?
If possible can i change that in the GUI or do I have to edit the files manually

It all happens automatically.
At present you have to edit
unpak_tv_file_format and unpak_film_folder_format in unpak.cfg
In the next version (this weekend hopefully) these keywords have moved to
catalog.cfg, and all config files can be managed via the gui settings.
(If you look closely at the settings screen shot above you can see them waiting for you )

Those are the options that I was looking for, can't wait to test it

Any eta known yet? can't wait

Ha, its a long story , and probably of interest to nobody, but I wrote most of the scripts in awk. I just found out an assumption I made about awk, and which lead me to write lots of horrible code to cope with 'awks' "limitiations",
was completely wrong.
So I've spent the last three days re-writing the scripts to be cleaner and more efficient.
So it looks like next weekend now, since I have to give them some more testing
The gory details for anyone interested:
I thought awk only let you read one file at a time, so to write the catalog script scanner, I wrote lots of very yucky code so that each nfo file scanned, or each wget/internet scrape, was dynamically added to awks list of files (argv).
and then processed by the appriate awk rule , as awk worked through its list.
For example scanning an nfo, might find an imdb link, so then I scrapped IMDB and added the html text file to awks argument list.
Another common awkism, to do stuff at the end of a file, you had to detect the start of the next file instead (FNR==1), and that only worked if there was another file pending, it was just really kudgy code to get it all working. I was even thinking about blogging about when not to use awk.
Then literally two days ago, I found out that this restriction isn't in awk, it was a figment of my imagination. To be honest most awk tutorials advise you are using awk wrongly if you are using 'getline' too much, and not using the pattern match rules, thats why I didnt think about the possibility of using getline to read a file which did not exists at the time awk was started.
Anyway it turns out, one website gave me that little nugget of information, that you can write an awk script that just fires off the 'BEGIN' an 'END' directives and doesn't have any those match rules in the middle. When done like this its just like using any other scripting language (perl,php etc) and you dont have to bother with all the automatic rule matching stuff. And can read/write files in any order you want.
So a big re-write, code is now faster and clearer with fewer bugs, but needs re-testing ...

Looks nice cant wait to try it!
RE: OVERSIGHT no-faffing about "Jukebox" V2: Sneak Preview... - jeffsui - 03-12-2009 02:28 PM
any updates on when we can get our hands on this?
RE: OVERSIGHT no-faffing about "Jukebox" V2: Sneak Preview... - lordy - 03-12-2009 02:47 PM
Im still working on some core features, so taking a bit longer than expected:
The main things before putting up a stable beta are:
Navigation - some improvements required esp when selecting files for deletion from the main page.
I'll put up a new beta for you to try this weekend. Any feedback welcome!
