I would like to be able auto create the xml files that mediaportal uses for recorded tv programs. I see that nfo files are already supported so i guess a lot of users are xbmc people.

When MP records a program it creates a .xml file to go with it, which stores metadata for the recording. The xml files can also be imported into the recording database, so that if you had an xml file for each episode of a series you own on dvd, you could import that into the recording database and use another plugin to record episodes that you don't own already.

Example below. Just the TITLE, EPISODENUM, SERIESNUM, EPISODENAME would be enough to do the job, as I assume other data is not scraped during the process yet.
(and obviously channel/start time/end time aren't relevant anyway)

Yours hopefully!
Ben

<value>Drama series telling the story of the famous wizard's young adulthood in Camelot, set within a medieval world of fantasy and enchantment. Merlin faces his toughest challenge yet when Morgana's blinkered determination threatens not only Arthur's future, but the very balance of the world. With her magic stronger than ever, the sorceress summons the mighty Callieach to tear open the veil between the worlds. Hellish creatures pour forth, killing any who succumb to their touch. With Uther a shadow of his former self, it falls to Arthur and his loyal knights, including Lancelot, to protect the kingdom. But it will take more than just swords to vanquish their enemy and Merlin is shocked to the core when he discovers the only way to restore the equilibrium requires a sacrifice of unimaginable proportions.</value>
