Installation Problems

Postby ronluna » Tue Mar 08, 2016 8:49 am

after following the guide posted at github ""

I was able to add and link lineup using sd-json into mythtv but I did run into a few problems.

1- sd-utility.php is unable to create schedulesdirect database's tables when running for the first time. I had to manually create 3 tables and the perform sd-utility.php --reset in order to get the script to recreate all the tables from scratch.

2- while searching for lineups (using option #2 sd-utility.php) The script keeps showing this message:
PHP Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/xxxxx/mfdb-json/sd-utility.php on line 1154

3- the script is unable to set the schema version in the database. I have run the sd-utility.php and add a few listing to my account, linked it to a channel lineup and update it. everything works well ...

Problems start while trying to grab the program information. Here is the output.

Any ideas how to solve the scheme version situation?

To bypass the Fatal error when trying to retrieve the Schema Version that mfdb-json.php was returning. I made the following change:

Ugly hack but it worked

//$dbSchedulesDirectJSONschemaVersion = settingSD("SchedulesDirectJSONschemaVersion");
$dbSchedulesDirectJSONschemaVersion = "3";
