MythFillDatabase - Only grabs current day

Reported by: B34N Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: 1204
Component: MythTV Version: 1204
Severity: normal Keywords: MythTV


MythTV's program guide only populates with current day's listings and never adds unless MythTV setup is rerun (triggering mythfilldatabase).

I'm using 12.04 with schedules direct. The program guide populates fine for current day (shows starting before midnight) but never adds more content. With typical MythTV installs, mythfilldatabase will grab two weeks of guide data and would rerun every day.

I don't know if this is related but when I ran /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh I noticed this in the logs: http://pastebin.com/w0BsP30W

I tried to run mythfulldatabase on my own but had no luck. I don't know if I needed to run it as a certain user or not.

/usr/pluto/bin/MythTvInitialFillDB.sh is intentionally set to grab only current day data.

/usr/pluto/bin/MythTvDailyFillDB.sh which grabs the full 14 days of data was not scheduled to run.

running it manually as root populated the guide data for two weeks. I added it to my daily cron. I suspect that it'll now keep everything current.

MythTV_PlugIn/MythTvSyncDB.sh:78: UpdateMythSetting? "MythFillDatabasePath?" "/usr/pluto/bin/MythTvDailyFillDB.sh" "NULL"

This only gets called if you don't tell mythtv plugin that you're managing things yourself. Are you?

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

As thom says, if managing things yourself you need to specifiy the mythfilldatabase settings in the mythtv-backend as lmce will do nothing when set to manual. Closing as wontfix for now. Please reopen if required.
