webservices.schedulesdirect -- 401 unauthorized

Post by ichudov »

I registered for a 7 day trial yesterday, hoping to test this service out before paying to use it.

I use MythTV on Ubuntu Intrepid.

When running mythfilldatabase, I get a lot of errors such as this one:

2009-01-15 14:49:44.715 Grabbing listing data
--2009-01-15 14:49:44-- http://webservices.schedulesdirect.tmsd ... tvdService

HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 401 Unauthorized
Authorization failed.
2009-01-15 14:49:44.972 Grab complete. Actual data from to (UTC)

As a result, my database is not populated with TV schedule.

Sadly, MythTV is not telling me anything useful such as what credentials it uses and what exactly it tries to pull, but I definitely specified right credentials upon running mythtv-setup.

A few hundred lines later, mythfilldatabase succeeded pulling some other files and said DataDirect: Your subscription expires on 01/21/09 08:03:11, which suggests that the credentials that I supplied are correct.

The end result is that I have no schedule, so mythtv does not work.

have you chosen a lineup?

Have you tried the "I can't get listings" stickie at the top of the support forum?
