Specifically, what I'd like to be able to do is to run a scheduled task that will start XBMC MC, scan for new items, then close XBMC MC.

I'll look at adding command line functionality at some point in the future.

I know you're rewriting MC right now, but still, I'm also adding my vote here. Wink
This would be an awesome feature!

This post is maybe a bit unnessary but I also request for this feature.

Would't it be nice to make an automatic script after Sabznbd finished his downloads Smile

Another vote. I run all my other library and renaming apps via command line automatically when torrents finish downloading and would love to add this to it. Right now I use an autoit script but it's not very pretty.

Basic command line option "sq" has been added to version 3.031 - see announcements.

"\media companion.exe sq"

will start media companion minimized, scan for new movies, then exit.

I'm just wondering if there will be a command line for scanning new TV shows in the near future. That's the only thing I'm missing right now for my perfect automated HTPC setup.

Thanks for the great software.

Auto scanning of tv shows will never happen since user input is required.

New episodes added to exisiting tv shows on the other hand will be added to the command line options, although it will likely be a few weeks away.

Perfect. Thanks for the reply. Existing TV shows is exactly what I'm looking for.

This works great for movies. Another +1 for tv episodes

This is still the best at what it does and I've tried nearly all of the others. Nice job.

Command-line driven Media Companion

Would it be possible to have command line access to some functions, e.g.,
-scrape-movies scrape new movies (I see this is sq)
-scrape-eps scrape new episodes
-html-movie "template-title" "movielisting.html"
movie html output

then it's possible to do the following
schtasks /create /ru <myusername> /sc DAILY /TN "MC Movie HTML output" /ST 03:00 /TR "'c:\users\<myusername>\apps\mc\media companion.exe' -html-movie \"Movie Title\" "

Internally I'm not sure how mixed the gui code is in the functions but in very mixed psuedo-code if you split out the functions, it shouldn't matter whether it's a click on a button or a cli switch. However if very mixed it could be a painful rewrite/restructure.
I think there would also have to be a way of reporting errors, maybe checking for a cli generated logfile at MC GUI start??

Regards,
Mark

Code:

if argv[] >0 then {
 set NOGUI
};

if opts[0] == "--help" or "-h" or "?" or "h" then {
  print "highly useful media companion help info\n";
  exit();
  }

... 
 getConfig();  # setup MC, read in config, etc.
...
 c

case:
  opts[0] == "html-movie" {
    htmlOutput(opts[1],opts[2],errorlog);
    };
 
case:
  opts[0] == "scrape-movie" {
    scrapeMovie("moviepath".$MovieName,errorlog);
    };

function guiSetup();
    case scrapeMovie.Button.click: scrapeMovie("moviepath".$MovieName,gui);
    case ...

Every time this gets near the top of my list some other feature seems to distract me.

It would be fairly simple to implement, MC can already start without the GUI, and the TV Scraper, like the movie scraper runs on its own thread, completely independant of the GUI, it's just a matter of MC starting, loading the existing config and cache files, then starting the search for new episodes thread.
I will have to have a little think about the syntax structure though.

I think the help for the commandline would also be fairly straight forward.

BTW, MC is written with VB and not C#, although your sample code is still appreciated.

It was just pseudo code I think there was perl, python and C in there. I haven't done enough C# to remember, as it is one of my read-and-possibly-modify languages.

Hi,
I have searched through the fourms and been through quite a few release notes to see if command line options for episodes for exisiting tv shows has been added with no luck. Is there any word on this option?

Cheers for such an awesome program

Been taking a close look at this, and have encountered a couple of issues.

To get the best of command line MC would really need to be a 'Console Application', which it certainly is not. The best I could do would be have MC start minimised or invisible, do the work then exit.

A better option, from my experiments would be to create a seperate small console application that sits in the MC folder and can share the config and libraries etc.

Since this seems to be the thing highest on users lists at the moment then I will concentrate on this.

I have a uni assignment that needs to be done this week and its taking most of my time, so I am looking at the week after for the initial build of this feature.
