xtvd - Error while decompressing

Post by alexo »

I am trying to use this service with xtvd-load from the xtvd-tools package.
The data seems to be retrieved from the server but when the script tries to decompress it I am getting the following error:
error: Error -3 while decompressing: unknown compression method
It appears that the zlib function decompress() fails to decompress the received buffer.
The Python version I am using is 2.3, which is supposed to work acc. to the xtvd instructions.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Alex

if the buffer is written to disk somewhere, maybe it not a compressed file, but a text error message?

It seems that the size of the output buffer is 1024, so the entire request buffer was filled, which is probably a sign that it is not an error message but the actual data.. Just a guess.
