Channel logo updates?

Postby karlshea » Thu Jun 29, 2017 2:34 pm

Just curious how often the channel logos get updated, or how that process works. SyFy has a new logo and the service was still returning the old one, but I know they originally come from a third-party provider.

We refresh the logos periodically. I'll find out if our upstream has a new logo set.

Thanks! No rush obviously, just was wondering how that worked.

Are you seeing any updates now? What's the stationID that you're pulling?

Sorry, should have turned on thread notifications.

The two station IDs are I11097.json.schedulesdirect.org and I58623.json.schedulesdirect.org.

I ran mythfilldatabase --do-channel-updates (which is set to use tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite) and afterwards the database showed the same two logo filenames as before (s11097_h3_aa.png and s58623_h3_aa.png).

I thought it wasn't working since afterwards those two files in ~/.mythtv/channels were the same (old) logo, but when I hit https://s3.amazonaws.com/schedulesdirec ... _h3_aa.png directly it's the new logo. So it seems that it didn't try and re-fetch (which sort of makes sense, I guess, you wouldn't want to re-download all of the logos every time).

But I deleted all of the channel logos and re-ran mythfilldatabase and the new ones came down. I suppose that's the solution every now and then if I want them refreshed.

Thanks for answering my questions about this!
