Getting Schedules Direct working with KnoppMyth

Post by cesman »

Once SD goes live (if R5Fx isn't out):

1) Get and install the latest XMLTV (0.5.48 as of this writing) from xmltv.org.
2) Get and install the latest -fixes (mythtv and plugins).
3) Signup for Schedules Direct (when it goes public).
4) Create lineup on SD site.
5) Run mythtv-setup (<alt><s> (make sure you stop the backend <alt><2>)).
6) Deleted all video sources.
7) Create lineup using SD.
8 ) Run mythfilldatabase --refresh-all (give it a moment to start grabbing the listing)
9) Bind the new SD source to your input as usual.
10) Enjoy (exit mythtv-setup, start the backend <alt><1> and start the frontend <alt><m>)!

Example:

Code: Select all

wget http://internap.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/xmltv/xmltv-0.5.48.tar.bz2
tar xjvf xml<tab>
cd xml<tab>
perl Ma<tab> PREFIX=/usr
make
make test
su
make install
exit
cd..
svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/branches/release-0-20-fixes/mythtv
svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/branches/release-0-20-fixes/mythplugins
cd mythtv
./configure --prefix=/usr --arch=i586 --enable-dvb --enable-firewire --dvb-path=/usr/include --enable-xvmc --enable-xvmc-vld --enable-opengl-vsync --enable-mmx --enable-proc-opt --enable-memalign-hack --enable-xvmc-pro
qmake mythtv.pro
make
su
make install
exit
cd ../mythp<tab>
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-all --disable-festival  --enable-fftw --enable-sdl --enable-aac --enable-new-exif
qmake mythplugins.pro
make
su
make install
As I'm not running any version but the absolute latest, I won't be making packages for older releases. The instructions are easy to follow so building things from source should not be a biggie. You can also wait for the next release, which will include the above plus more!

What he is saying I think is in mythtv-setup, change your source from zaptoit to SD. You will have to then put in your SD username (email) and password. Then "retrieve" lineup.

I found that you don't have to do step #6, delete video sources. You can do as I said, just change from zaptoit to SD. This is assuming your sources haven't changed. For example, I had an OTA lineup and a DirecTV lineup at zaptoit. Going to SD, these lineups were still the ones I need. So the video sources didn't need to be deleted and re-created.

I have gotten schedules direct working fine.

I wanted to update xmltv from its .45 to latest.

I installed xmltv per the previous steps using KnoppMyth R5F1. I got no errors. I did not reinstall mythtv.

After the install, I still get .45 for the version like it didn't install. Any ideas??

Also should I install 0.48 or 0.50?

The older version of XML is giving me lineup errors, I think, but the raw XML seems to be OK.

0.5.50 is more current. IIRC since 0.5.48 there have been a few fixes on repeat detection.
