Hi,

Is there any details information around creating a plugin? I'm a dev so should be able to come up with something but I need a nudge in the right direction.

My idea (if someone want to get there first) is to scrape this page

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_The_Totally_Rad_Show_Episodes

for the movie name, and link you directly to the episode of TRS.

trs is in video > internet video > revision3.... strike that, trs is missing, unfortunately.
just the same here is their feed:
http://revision3.com/trs/feed/xvid-large/
and here is how to add it to your sources list:

boxee is based on xbmc. the python api docs can be found here:

@boxee devs:
ignore me

Ok. Interesting. I'm still waiting on my atv so i haven't had chance to play with boxee yet.

I knew there was a revision3 "channel", and I assumed TRS would be in there. If it's not then how are you listing the revision3 shows? is it just hard coded?

Nevertheless, This is not the plugin i want. I want to go to a movie and jump to the TRS episode where that movie is reviewed.

And why not the visa versa? go to an episode of TRS and list all the movies/tv shows that were reviewed.

it's kinda hard coded. the feed settings for rev3 are here:
http://rss.boxee.tv/revision3.xml

i might be misunderstanding, but i thought trs was a show about gaming?

And why not the visa versa? go to an episode of TRS and list all the movies/tv shows that were reviewed.
this would need a custom plugin, for sure. check out those python api docs.

TRS review movies, games, TV shows, and comics. And it looks like it is in that xml file ?!?

Thanks for the link. I'll check out the api.
