I hadn't noticed before that the Freesat EPG has Extended Event Descriptors for 5 USA.

Here is an example:

************
5 USA +1, Sun 29 Mar 02:55 - 03:50: Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
A six-year-old boy disappears during a wild drug party thrown by his mother. With a child's life at stake, the case causes Benson to question her own role as a mother. (S18 Ep 8)[S]
(Contains strong language and drug use)

<extended_event_descriptor lang = eng>
EpisodeName = Chasing Theo
EpisodeNumber = 8
SeriesNumber = 18
AlphaSortIndexEventName = Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
TEXT:
Drama series about an NYPD unit specialising in sex-related crimes. A six-year-old boy disappears during a wild drug party thrown by his mother. With a child's life at stake, the case causes Benson to question her own role as a mother [S]
</extended_event_descriptor>
************

Does anyone see this stuff on their Freesat device?

I tried searching for "AlphaSortIndexEventName" and came up empty except for my own posts on here. It seems an unlikely term to use on a consumer device.

Oops, must have been something in your post that the automated censor didn't like, no doubt incorrectly!

Chris.SE: There was nothing objectionable in the post that I am aware of.

As for "automated censor" I'm fairly certain it was there earlier.

The post was merely showing how the 5 USA +1 event cited above was technically delivered.

Perhaps someone thought that information should not be published.

It's a real pain to have to redo this and I've had a few beers so not sure I've got it right but this is essentially what I posted.

I'm replacing < by [ and > by ] in case that was the trigger for the "moderation".

Here is an xml dump from the TransEdit TS Analyser of the afore-mentioned Extended Event, illustrating its structure:

well, it's still there. If it gets "moderated", that would be interesting. Meanwhile, it's bedtime for bonzo.

js:

I had absolutely no doubt that there wouldn't have been anything objectionable in the post. The automated censor is obviously a reactive thing that scans posts sometime after they are made which is why they appear for a short time. I expect it found a "string" of characters that it managed to interpret as something objectionable, some swear word or something else obscene. Where I've posted long complex posts, I have occasionally taken to taking a copy of the text and saving it in a text file before I post, so that I can recover it if the need arises.

Chris.SE: I had it in a text file but deleted that after checking it was up on here. I remember copying the xml part of it off here and checking if worked in Internet Explorer - which it did. That it contained a valid xml file may have caused the moderation of it.

My intention was to show how the Items are sent and how the term "AlphaSortIndexEventName" is a transmitted field name, one which is hardly likely to appear on a consumer device.
