View Full Version : MythTV database (channel/listings) problems

October 24th, 2007, 09:05 AM
Dear friends,
I'm having some problems giving my listing and channel information to the mythTV DB. I am using custum-generated XML files and the command:

mythfilldatabast --file 1 -1 listings.xml

The channels are listed by name, but do not have a number associated with them. The listings are not present. Has anyone encountered a problem like this before? I am using the specifications in the XMLTV.DTD.

Here is a sample of my XML file:

<channel id = "4.cable">
<display-name>4 - KNBC</display-name>
<programme start = "200710220400" stop = "200710220500" id = "2.cable">
<title>CBS Morning News</title>

I appriciate any help on this topic. I can't wait to have a MythTV box !

I fixed a problem in the XML <programme> tag, the id attribute should be channel. Now I have listings when I use the frontend and search for shows by title. When I try to search listings by channel, there is only <unknown> listings. Any ideas?

have you tried mythfilldatabase --manual?
