MythTV - "DataDirect: Failed to get data: Download error"

Postby abmagfab » Mon Apr 07, 2014 6:34 pm

Is there something going on? This has been happening for a couple of days. This would happen once in a while before, but even running it manually I can't get it to load.

Any suggestions? I can get to the site, and connectivity is not an issue.

Really need my guide data - it's running out!

Thanks in advance for any help.

Yea, as mentioned elsewhere, Tribune's servers have not been as reliable as they have been historically.

That said, it's also not that bad. We're talking usually less than 45 minutes of problems a day (but often take longer to download than normal).

Suggestions:
    Reduce the number of stations (do you really need all the shopping channels?)
    Try polling random times during the day
I'm also escalating with Tribune.

Okay, thanks.

Definitely more than 45 minutes, as I wasn't working for about 6 hours. It finally worked last night though, so I'm good for a couple days.
