Re: Features/Improvements Requests

I hope it hasn't been requested yet, did a search in the forums but couldn't find anything. Possibility of Auto-added tags?, I'd love to see the addition of for example auto-add all shows on my watch list which are from Netflix to a "Netflix" tag, so I have a easy overview of the shows found there (and Amazon Video, etc) without having to manually add them first to my watch list, then to a buch of seperate lists after that.

Re: Features/Improvements Requests

Hey santah, so this may just be a stupid idea, but it's been bothering me so I thought I'd ask:

Is there any programmable way to set a time difference based on the *type* of publishing platform, instead of / in addition to the global setting for the site?
What do I mean? See this pic:
https://i.ibb.co/2dmNPgh/Next-Episode-Schedule.png
Being in Iceland, I'm GMT +0, but obviously most TV airs on either side of the Atlantic. For me, there are three distinct types of platforms:

  • US streaming services

  • US broadcast TV

  • Japan streaming services

US streaming usually happens after midnight, somewhere in the early AM US time, which is early morning for me.
US broadcast TV is sometime after dinner, which is after midnight for me, while I sleep.
Japan streaming is again usually somewhere in the early AM Japan time "tomorrow", which is around dinner time "today" for me.

So for me to access the shows according to the schedule, both the Japanese and US streaming services land on today (mostly), but all of the US broadcasting services land on tomorrow.

So.. ideally, I would want to move all the US broadcast TV stuff a day back, but keep all the streaming stuff on today. Makes sense?
Obviously there are all sorts of variation in when shows are aired, with not all of them being in the same slot, but this is the general layout, so if this setting were possible, the schedule would certainly be far more correct than it is today.

Re: Features/Improvements Requests

Hm ok, as both the setup and what you want to achieve is kinda complex, what I suggest is playing with your timezone settings here:

https://next-episode.net/settings?action=cUserInfo

and to use or not to use the timezone here:

https://next-episode.net/settings?action=airdates

and see if there is a timezone that satisfies your needs?

Re: Features/Improvements Requests

Yeah, thanks, I figured as much, but none of the timezone settings really help me because they obviously move the US streaming and US broadcast TV in the same direction, and those are what I need to split apart, without losing the Anime stuff.
But then again, I don't really care as much the anime stuff, because I use anidb for that.. hmm. hmm

I'll try again to mess with all the settings and see if I can get at least a better result.

By the way, another thing that's always bothered me, but I guess is just a personal preference:
"Today" is always in the "Future" column. To me, at least, it makes much more sense to have today in the "Past" column. I mean, I do all this work in the evenings when I come home from work, so most of the TV is already out then. And at the end of my day when I go to sleep, when all the shows of today are out, they're still in the "Future". big_smile

Re: Features/Improvements Requests

Hm yeah, splitting those apart is going to be tough and will require too much changes in the way the site behaves and calculates things and you understand why it isn't going to happen.

As for 'Today' - playing with the timezone should fix at least that for you, no?

enhance Calendar listings for x01 episodes?

Might it be possible to highlight the first episode (or a series, or a season) in the web calendar?  Possibly just putting the title text, or the episode number text, in reverse (aka a colored background)?

My DVR goofed up and lost ALL of it's series recordings last week.  Therefore I have to pay very close attention to the calendar here to catch all the fall premier dates so I can re-add the series recording. to my DVR  My DVR doesn't let me create a series recording for a show that has no episodes airing in the next 14 days so this will be an ongoing rebuilding.

Something like that would be good... What I do is this: around every first of the month, I search the https://next-episode.net/calendar/ for "x01" and "eps" to find all the shows that start in that month.

Auto-highlighting those "new season beginnings" somehow or listing "watchlist shows with season beginnings" somewhere would be great, and I read others here would welcome something like that too.
