View Full Version : Missing/editing xmltvids

I've scanned for qam cable channels (don't use a set-top-box) with the digital side of my Hauppauge 1600. Some of the channels are the digital version of my local stations. Some of these channels are properly identified with the right station id and xmltvid, others are not.

For example, my fox digital station is 613.2 . The station can be viewed just fine using myth, but the xmltvid is not found, so no guide info is available. This seemed simple enough to correct; I got the xmltvid used for the analog fox channel (found on mythweb>settings>channel info) and inserted it into the xmltvid field for 613.2.

Then I ran mythfilldatabase expecting the guide data to be filled in, but it's still blank.

I'm sure I did this some months ago for another channel and it worked; am I missing something this time?

Thanks for any suggestions,
John

Neverminnnnd. The guide data did populate, but not for the current day. If I'd flipped a day ahead I'd have seen it.

Thanks anyway
