Downloaded schedule off by 1 hour

Post by genuckols »

Can someone tell me why the EPG listings that I downloaded today are off by 1 hour? None of my programs will record tonight correctly because all of my 8:00pm shows that should have been recording for the last 45 minutes are showing at 9:00pm. All other listings follow which make them 1 hour off.

I realize that daylight savings time changes tonight and at 2:00am clocks are to be set one hour forward, but it appears that all my listings were set forward at 7:00pm tonight. The 7:00pm to 8:00pm time slot for all channels show (no show details) and everything is shifted forward. How do I correct this?

Run the download again and you will see times will match correctly. If you load a new set of listings before DST kicks in, the sched is off by 1 hour and it looks right but the shows are in the wrong time slot. Do it again just like you did now that DST is actually in effect and it should come out right.

what app are you using?

The listings are in UTC so are unaffected by DST issues.

It's definitely a problem in application (MythTV in my case). I have 2 lineups, the first one is cable and is correct in Myth, the second one on antenna is off by an hour in Myth, but obviously correct in Schedules Direct.

Re: Downloaded schedule off by 1 hour - myth fix

Post by mrjhh »

I found the underlying problem thanks to some hints on the myth mailing list - for HD over the air channels, mythtv has an option to get program data from EIT, provided by the stations themselves. The stations are apparently not very diligent in keeping this data correct, and it overrides the good data from Schedules Direct with the bad data. To fix the problem, stop the mythbackend, run mythtvsetup, edit the over-the-air lineup, and disable EIT. Then run myhtfilldb to fix the next days schedule, and restart mythbackend. Today's schedule may still be incorrect, as well as the day after tomorrow, but the day after tomorrow will get fixed tomorrow, and EIT only has data for at most a couple of days.
