"No Data" listing for some digital channels - RESOLVED

I am using mythdora 5 with a hd-homerun tuner and a plextor convertx tuner. When I run mythfilldatabase, it grabs all the tv listing info and displays it properly under the listings guide in mythtv, *except* for channels 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3. These are the digital broadcasts for ABC on Cablevision in the central NJ area (08817). All I see is "No Data" for these three channels. I see all other listings for all other analog and digital channels that I can view. I have tried to run the scanner program many times, but nothing ever gets downloaded for these channels. (or perhaps it is downloading, but it's not displaying properly). Keep in mind that when I change to these channels, I do actually see the broadcast in HDTV, so the channel is valid, but I'm just not getting the listing info.

Is anyone else having similar problems, or have had this problem and was able to get a workaround? I'm wondering if there's possibly a bug or if the listings are actually not being displayed for these channels.

I do want to add that it is grabbing the channel names and displaying them in mythtv:

7.1 - WABC-HD
7.2 - LivWell
7.3 - Weather

Which makes me believe that there may be something wrong with the lineups rather than the mythtv config. Else, why would it be able to download the call sign info but not the listing info?

Resolved. I found a post on the mythtv forums where someone gave the steps on how to remove the listings info and re-add them in correctly. Here are the steps for anyone else having this problem:

1. Open the MythTV MySQL database

Code: Select all

mysql -D mythconverg -u mythtv -p
[Enter the password for MySQL User mythtv]
2. Drop all content of the program table

Code: Select all

truncate table program;
3. Leave the MySQL console

Code: Select all

4. Re-run mythfilldatabase

Code: Select all
