View Full Version : Mythbuntu EIT error

October 5th, 2009, 03:25 PM
Hi after a year of running mythbuntu I have encountered a problem with EIT data gone missing. The grabber runs fine but not all channels are listed on the xml feed. So I would like EIT back.

When I check the database via mythweb I have the following error:

File './mythconverg/eit_cache.MYD' not found (Errcode: 2)

On searching the folder I had 2 .bak files I renamed to match the missing files but no luck.

I have looked around but cant find any solutions to this error. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

I ended up restoring a db backup I did a while ago and eit works in full for some channels but only picks up an hour or so worth of data on others.

I am confused as to why it is sporadic.

I will try removing capture cards and adding again to see if it works.

Update to follow...

EIT can take several days to fully populate for some channels, leaving you with 'now & next' in the meantime. I've had some take as long as five days after a retune. Maybe worth leaving it a few days to see if it comes in eventually?

Yes - mine took 5 days to sort itself out after the recent UK retune.

*no* idea why it should take so long.
