Re: timing off by 1 hour on Jan 11, KPIX, bay area Comcast

I scheduled an episode of Scorpion to record last night. The first 15 minutes or so was the tail end of a sports show. The rest of the time slot was the correct show. So it looks like the problem was caused by an earlier sports show over running it's estimate time slot. I think we can consider this ...

Re: timing off by 1 hour on Jan 11, KPIX, bay area Comcast

Thanks for the quick response. was it a one time thing or is that station always off? This is the first time I have seen this happen. The next new episode for both shows is several weeks out, so I can't tell if it is going to happen again at this time. Could there have been an earlier sports event t...

timing off by 1 hour on Jan 11, KPIX, bay area Comcast

Guideddata for Madam Secretary and The Good Wife showed them starting 1 hour later than they really started on Jan 11. Madam Secretary usually starts at 8PM; the guide data showed it starting at 9PM. The good wife usually starts at 9PM; the guide data showed it starting at 10PM. As a consequence, th...

Re: Download info for bash script

I've made some reasonable progress. They can operate from either the Silicon Dust lineup server OR they can use the guide data that Comcast transmits every 60 seconds. The latter does not work with all tuner cards. I've had success with both an Airstar and Kworld card, but not with a Pinnacle card. ...

Re: Download info for bash script

Robert, thanks for the pointer. I've made some progress based on your pointers -- I appreciate it. At this point I have 2 viable choices:

1. Use wget and parse the xml file.

2. Use tv_grab_na_dd and parse the xml file that produces.

Re: How to get channel lineup info?

dereks, I'm looking to do the same thing. Did you ever sovle this? I'm trying to do this from a bash script, and while I have a way forward, the way I'm coming at it is going to require a lot of parsing. I'm hoping you have something I can beg, borrow or steal :-), thanks!

Re: Download info for bash script

I'm talking the raw file downloaded from Tribune (MythTV uses wget). Does MythTV delete it after populating the table? If I had written it, I would keep the last copy in case it's needed for troubleshooting.... Robert Robert, thanks for the follow up -- I see your point. I just ran mythfilldatabase...

Re: Download info for bash script

The easiest ting to do is find where MythTV downloads the guide data and get the channel info from the last download. (I assume it keeps it). You can always fetch it.. you only need to separate start/stop by a minute... all you want is the lineup info. rmeden, thank you for replying. Unfortunately,...

Re: Download info for bash script

it doesn't change very much.. why not just look at the "lineup report" from the SD website and copy/paste? You can also look at the raw XML directly Robert Robert, thanks for replying. The process of setting up a clear-QAM tuner in mythtv is very painful for several reasons. I've written a script t...

Download info for bash script

I've written some scripts to simplify the process of setting up my clear QAM channels in my mythtv system. I'm able to download useful information from Silicon Dust that helps me map frequencies to channels. What I need now is the ability to download the channel #, callsign and xmltvid information f...
