Download Listing For Offline Update

Postby jamoody » Thu Feb 11, 2016 8:29 am

The internet for my MythTV box is temporarily (several days) down and the program guide is getting a bit stale. I'd like to update the program guide via manually importing a listings file. mythfilldatabase --dd-file seems to be the option to skip the grabber and get the SD data from a file. I have internet access from another location and can sneaker net the file to the MythTV server, but how do I download the SD file?

Download XMTV

tv_grab_na_dd --configure # answer questions
tv_grab_na_dd --days 14 --dd-data dd.xml --download-only # (You'll only get 12-13 days, but doesn't hurt to ask)
tv_grab_na_dd --days 14 --output tv.xml # to get data in XMLTV format instead of raw xtvd format

If on windows, start each line with xmltv.exe
