Hi all

MWI is a web interface to the toppy that uses the MyStuff API

There are now two main versions of MWI

The 0.5x release works with MS 5 API
The 0.6x release works with the MS6 API


mstombs has been working on MWI 0.6 and has produced a version that works with MS 6.2

MWI 0.62 - information and developments can be found further down in this thread http://forum.toppy.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?p=228968&highlight=#228968
**************

You can view screenshots of the 0.5 interface http://beephonkbeep.sitesled.com/index.html.

mwi runs on a slug, asus or pc

http://www.mstombs.talktalk.net/mwi_beta_0_62_002.tar.gz

Instructions for installing on a slug and PC are in the zips.

The 0.5x release is pretty tried and tested

The 0.62 release is a beta - ensure you back everything up just in case.


General Features of both versions
********
Retrieve current list of recorded programmes (Archive),
Delete selected programmes from Toppy
Download files from Toppy to your PC.
List of upcoming Timers (by date and name) - graphical timer map
Ability to Set and Delete Timers
List of CTs and the timers that each CT sets, navigate to EPG where timer is set
Ability to Set, Edit, Include, Exclude, Delete CTs
CTs can now have an expiration date/time
EPG that shows F, O, E, !, C, R logos in a similar way to MyStuff, and allows CTs and Timers to be set - single channel listing
All lists use the channel logos from the logo packs.
All lists and EPG use the skin colours from your currently selected MyStuff settings.
Ability to either list all channels in mei file, or those in a specified mcl file (eg. Favourites).
The EPG programs if hovered over pop up a channel logo and description of the program, Films are marked, and if in the mei, star ratings displayed.
The channels are below one another, and time scrolls sideways.
Full text searching of title and description
Queue CT and timer changes until a connection with the Toppy can be established - eg make timer changes even when Toppy is off.



Prerequisites
*************
A toppy that can be reached by ftp over a network
MyStuff (latest version) to be running on the Toppy
/ProgramFiles/Settings/MyStuff/API to exist on the Toppy
Z4 option of MyStuff set to processing frequency of API (I've mine set to 5 min)
Something to run these php scripts on (apache with php5 (win) used for development but should run on other/most things, possibly with minor tweaks).

Installation
************
This is php software, it needs to be run on a web server.
Instructions for installing on a slug and PC are in the zip.

Issues
******
Be aware that the delete function doesn't put things into a recycle bin and isnt joined recording aware, it deletes them for good - I only added this feature in case of being away from home and having a nearly full Toppy, and not wanting to miss an upcoming timer event.

Warning
*******
As far as I'm aware this version works fine without significant problems, however if you decide to use it you do so at your own risk.

Enjoy

BhB

Downloaded the zipfile, but I don't understand what to do about it...
It only contains a bunch of files with extensions php plus many image files.
No readme or anything that can help get it going....

Where is the main exe file for example?

A few hints would be welcome.

Looks like something used by web servers.
I am looking for a program to run on my PC in order to show the MyStuff.mei file in EPG format...

Still....
I downloaded the PHP installer and ran it to install PHP.
This made the Windows Explorer icons for the php files change from unrecognized to a document image with PHP written on it and the type changed to PHP Script.
Yet, doubleclicking index.php resulted in nothing at all... Sad

What AM I supposed to do to make it work?

PS: I do have Apache 2.0.55 installed on my PC, use it for website authoring. DS

I would think you put it in your webserver document tree and access it via the webserver, using a browser. You might need to enable php in httpd.conf or something like that. BTW I don't use this program, so don't ask me details.

He's already said it's a web interface, and the files are PHP files, so it's fairly clear you need a web server set up (IIS or Apache) and PHP installed. Then install the MWI files somewhere that you can access via the web server.

Guys just in from work.

It does require a web server but one like XAMPP is trivial to install and easy to setup.

I'll post a complete install instruction sheet which I'll write later tonight, but had thought my first post was pretty clear.

Going to have something to eat now, but just so as you can judge whether it's worth installing I took some screenshots.

Archive http://www.savefile.com/files/1838919
CTlist http://www.savefile.com/files/1838920
epg1 http://www.savefile.com/files/1838923
epg2 http://www.savefile.com/files/1838928
newct http://www.savefile.com/files/1838929
timerlist http://www.savefile.com/files/1838931

Show thing like timerlist with todays timers highlighted, epg with mouse over pops, and icons on epg etc.

Food time.

And now to pass on a handy tip that others on here have passed on to me:

Any chance this can run itself on the slug, and just browse from PC?

Still trying....
I have created a directory in my Apache 2.0.55 httpd.conf for serving the files in the zip I downloaded.
This section looks like this:

#Topfield PVRt MWI management site
Alias /toppymwi/ "C:/Inetpub/altair/MWI/"

<Directory "C:/Inetpub/altair/MWI">
Options Indexes MultiViews Includes
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
AddType text/html .shtml
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
</Directory>


Then I restarted Apache.

So now when I access this location using http://polaris/toppymwi/ I get a files listing with all the files.
When I click the index.php file a page is shown with some buttons and a lot of error messages across.

Got a bit further by actually reading all the error messages (see below)...

Apparently the key here is config.php, so I have edited my copy as follows:

////////////////////////////////
//Free for non-commercial use //
//Modify as required //
//Use at own risk //
////////////////////////////////

// let`s set up some variables

//Slug address on network
$ftp_server = '192.168.0.65'; <== My AsusRouter IP
//Slug port
$ftp_port = '21';
//Slug username
$user_name ='anonymous';
//Slug pw
// "".chr(13) puts a blank password
$user_pw = "kalle@duck.com".chr(13); <== dummy password
//Hard Disk capacity GB
$toppy_disk_size = 160; <== the size of the Toppy hdd
//Freeview.mei or MyStuff.mei
//EPG data is retrieved from toppy
//tell mwi which you'd like to retrieve and use
$mei_source = 'MyStuff.mei'; <== This is my EPG source...
//minutes MyStuff configured to prepad
$default_prepadding = 1;
//minutes MyStuff configured to postpad
$default_postpadding = 10;
//mcl to use in epg
//$cltouse = '';
$cltouse = 'boxer.mcl'; <== my favlist

With this in place I still get error messages like below when I use any of the buttons on the index page (which is also filled with errors:

Warning: ftp_login() [function.ftp-login]: Guest login ok, type your name as password. in C:\Inetpub\altair\MWI\archive.php on line 11

But on line 11 in archive.php I find references to variables that should have been set up in config.php as shown above:

ftp_login($ftp,$user_name,$user_pw);

Warning: ftp_chdir() [function.ftp-chdir]: Please login with USER and PASS. in C:\Inetpub\altair\MWI\archive.php on line 12

Warning: ftp_chdir() [function.ftp-chdir]: Please login with USER and PASS. in C:\Inetpub\altair\MWI\archive.php on line 22

Warning: file(./Files_from_Toppy/CurrentlySelectedSkin.mcf) [function.file]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\Inetpub\altair\MWI\style.php on line 26


I am not using any "skins" for MyStuff so this line should probably not even be called...

Maybe you could tell me from this what I need to do now?

BTW: My Toppy is accessible by FTP at local address 192.168.0.65 and also using the hostname asusrouter. I have tried both in the config.php with the same result.
I regularly use Filezilla via anonymous FTP to access the toppy and that is OK.

I'm getting similar problem, except I am running it in lighttpd on my Asus. I get the following when I try to run getfiles.php (ignore the line numbers as I have hacked the file with debug info):

Code:
2008-10-14 20:02:02: (mod_fastcgi.c.2570) FastCGI-stderr: PHP Warning:  ftp_login() [<a href='function.ftp-login'>function.ftp-login</a>]: Guest login ok, type your name as password. in /opt/share/www/lighttpd/mwi/getfiles.php on line 26

PHP Warning:  ftp_get() [<a href='function.ftp-get'>function.ftp-get</a>]: Please login with USER and PASS. in /opt/share/www/lighttpd/mwi/getfiles.php on line 27


It looks like the login has failed.

Ok, changing the gettimers.php so it is hardcoded as:

Code:
ftp_login($ftp,'anonymous',' ');


means it is now working Smile
