I use MythTV to access listings information and populate the database; lately, I have been noticing a strange problem. I do most of my recording on one channel: 5.1, or the local version of CW. I do not think this issue is affecting any other channel. Certainly, most of them are fine, as verifying the problem visually is very easy. A normal day looks just like you would expect:
If I do that for whichever day offset is wrong (usually an entire block will be wrong), then I can get listing information, and scheduled recordings, to appear correct. It is unclear to me how long this lasts, or when the problem occurs.
I checked the recording status on at the end of last week (I'm not sure when, and I don't want to give incorrect information), and it was set up to record the shows as expected (at least one per day). When I looked today, it said that it wasn't going to recording anything until Saturday; the entire week had disappeared for that channel.
Any information on why this occurs or how I can remedy the problem would be greatly appreciated. I don't know whether this is a MythTV problem or a SchedulesDirect problem, but since the listings information is what's changing, I'm starting with SchedulesDirect. Any idea what's going on?
Thanks in advance for all the help.
However, for reasons I haven't been able to discern yet, occasionally all program data for channel 5.1 will be replaced by three hour blocks of "Regularly Scheduled Programming", like so (scroll down to channel 5.1):
Has anyone seen this before, or do they know how it occurs? This problem has caused me to miss recordings on many occasions; these days, I have to check the "upcoming recordings" page of my MythTV status constantly so I can try to fix the problem when I find it. Forcing a database update will usually correct the problem:
