    Locals - Complete Marketid List?

    Does anyone know where to fins a list of marketid's?

    Juppers included a list with his midupdate.tcl but I need the 119s.

    Thanks

    >>> I need the 119s <<<

    OK, these were easy enough:
    Las Vegas 108
    New Orleans 133
    Norfolk 135
    Oklahoma City 138

    The rest of the 119s will be easy enough and I'll post them when I get a chance to figure them out. Hartford and Grand Rapids are going to be a bear.

    A solution to "To Be Announced", getting a complete set of local guides to stick for a large number of markets lies along these lines, using Juppers' work and brute force. The tools are there, between the midupdate.tcl and selectlocals.tcl code; it's a question of getting it automated and practical (eliminating reboots between market guide renewals, somehow). The process will probably have to run once a day. Since the guides for SOME cities DO stick, the process will be more efficient if it allows the user to select the markets for which the guides need to be renewed daily or whatever. I'll bang away at it to the extent I can but it sure would be nice to have some talent on the project instead.

    It's working AROUND the problem of rather than solving it, but nothing else seems to be on the horizon.

    >>> Las Vegas 108
    New Orleans 133
    Norfolk 135
    Oklahoma City 138 <<<

    Add:
    Hartford 86.

    That's as far as I'm going to go at the moment; I now have a list of 11 local markets I want and I've tested with the midupdate/setlocals combo and this all seems to work.

    I've started all over with a totally clean slate and I've rebuilt my locals list, to make sure the experimenting hasn't been a fluke. I'm going to let the 11 markets go for a couple of weeks and test out the repair proceedure as TBA starts coming back. Then I'll add the other missing marketid's if no one else has, and write up the whole thing.

    But the task then will be eliminate the dozen + reboots required for setup and then autoscript the whole process, including a TBA self-repair loop.

    If anyone is inclined to track down some missing marketid's here's some info (of course eventually someone is going to say "the whole list was _here_ all the time, you dumbass," but I couldn't find it, or figure out how to generate it automatically, so ...):

    Buffalo is between 26-34
    Grand Rapids 57-85
    Jacksonville 94-99
    Knoxville 101-107
    Providence 150-162

    And again the "master" list is in Juppers' midupdate.tcl

    Will, thanks for your hard work.

    Shouldn't this thread be pinned?

    Here's a stab at all of them. I do not know if they are correct. I just sorted the list of TV markets in alphabetical order and fudged a few lines. If nothing else, it will give people an idea of what to try.

    Unhappy

    I want all the local markets I can get. That's 4 or 5 cities.

    I don't want to add tiers to my card or talk about it here.


    Is anyone having any luck doing this? It's my understanding that it can't be done. Can it?


    Thanks Group Mind.
