Re: tv_grab_sd_json stalls retrieving programs

Any ideas? While I doubt it is the issue (because that grabber has not seen many updates in the past few years), tv_grab_sd_json is a rather old version of the XMLTV grabber (which was renamed by the XMLTV project sometime in 2017). You should consider updating your XMLTV version to something more ...

Re: SD-DD lineup for YouTube TV?

Hi all, I am using Freeguide on Linux and Windows, which used the SD-DD interface. I am looking to switch from cable to YouTube-TV. Is there a SD-DD lineup for this? or only in the json interface? and in either case, is there a way to provide the generic YouTube-TV plus the local channels they supp...

Re: Frequency of daily-schedule MD5 changes

After further work on this, I've sped things up enough to handle a reasonably large lineup with 100% daily updating. I'm still marveling over the frequency of the changes. As others have said, talk to the upstreams upstreams (the networks, stations, etc.) if you desire less churn. They control the ...

Re: initial program load fails: 500 Internal Server Error

A 500 error, as it says, is some internal server error in the Schedules Direct servers. While that grabber does (as it says in the output) request up to 4000 programs at a time, the API specifies that the limit is 5000, so that grabber is within the defined limits. FWIW, I tried with your lineup (CA...

Re: Channel Logos - 404

I'm actually not sure what you're even referring to as far as refreshing the lineup, unless that's something that tv_grab_zz_sdjson is supposed to do internally. Yes, it would be something the application obtaining the data from Schedules Direct is supposed to perform when the data is marked as cha...

Re: Frequency of daily-schedule MD5 changes

Is there truly no way to do better? What is your ultimate goal? Reducing download size/time, or providing the most accurate data available to your app(s) for individuals (or for program scheduling) purposes? Trying to thread the needle by doing a bit of both is possible, but will be the wrong choic...

Probably best to ask on the EPG123 topic area in thegreenbutton.tv forums (where the author and community provide support). I suspect you are not the first person to have experienced various anomalies.

Re: mythfilldatabase errror - FillData: XMLTV grabber returned error code 255

what happens when you run the XMLTV grabber manually? (you probably get a better error message) MythTV does not show any error messages from the grabber in the mythfilldatabase log, even with enhanced logging enabled (it is a *known* bug in their command processor, but has not gotten sufficient tra...

Re: combine guides?

If you're using the XMLTV tools, you can use tv_cat to combine them. At least a few of the grabbers support combining multiple lineups into one output. Lineups and channel mappings would get very confusing though. Sometimes the app provides the necessary lineup isolation, but yeah, it can get very ...
