Re: Can't Retrieve Channels From Listing Source

i too have the same issue. I have followed the wiki for cached support when needing 2 sources with only 1 lineup. it just won't add the firewire channels. I can't believe this hasn't been resolved or at least the mythtv devs haven't posted here yet. I have even brought this up on mythttv-users maili...

Re: mythfilldatabase not working with SD

also, the only time the Add New Number blah blah shows up is when you use the channel scanner within mythtv-setup. You shouldn't do that.

Re: XMLTV

After years of looking at Linux as the way forward, problems like this make me think that Linux will stay a hobbyist operating system. I gave the xml file I got from the windows application to mythfilldatabase, and it doubled up the channels. I'm having problems from one end to the other. This is f...

Re: MythTV Howto?

In MythTV settings, under General I believe, is where you set the program to be used to fill the database. I just changed it from mythfilldatabase to my script (which I called mythfillfromsd ). I didn't change anything using mythtv-setup other than deleting all my channels and letting mythfilldatab...

Re: how's it going?

mythfilldatabase --file 1 -1 tw_cable.xml and it appeared to work but not much output??? I went and looked at mythweb and everything was ok BUT then I realized that the zap2it account was still enabled within my mythtv-setup. I wasn't sure what to do with the current settings within mythtv-setup re...

Re: MythTV Howto?

OK, Here is what I did. I replaced mythfilldatabase with a script, and have that script called from mythtv instead of mythfilldatabase. #!/bin/sh cd /root/ /usr/bin/tv_grab_na_dd --days 13 --download-only --dd-data tv_all.xml /usr/bin/mythfilldatabase --refresh-all --dd-file 1 -1 "0005410:-" tv_all...

Re: XMLTV

when you say change it to xmltv, what does that mean, there is no option for xmltv within the mythtv-setup source? do I leave that to be no grabber? how often should the cron job run? and again, can you please be specific as to every command that should be run? not only the mythfilldatabase but the ...

Re: MythTV Howto?

XMLTV does require lots of Perl packages. You should check your distro to see if it can install XMLTV and all it's dependencies. If the distro doesn't have the new 0.5.48 release yet, you should then be able to run Makefile.PL and install tv_grab_na_dd using our release (all the dependencies were a...

Re: how's it going?

I use Ubuntu Feisty pre-packaged mythtv. I signed up, got my lineup (eventually, had to click on 53172 like 10 times. it kept saying invalid zip code) Tried to use XMLTV to get listings file, finally figured that out (the xmltv perl makefile.py doesn't replace the current ones within /usr/bin/ so I ...
