MFDB: Unknown xmltv channel identifier:

Post by diyhouse » Tue Jan 16, 2018 12:46 pm

Can anyone help shed some light why I get so many "Unknown xmltv channel identifier: xyz" messages when I mfdb,.... with schedules direct, on latest mythtv 0.28 with updates applied on a ubuntu 16.04 system.

I have checked the sql side of the database and the xmltv references appear to be correctly listed,.... and I have verified they exist in the video souce file.xmltv in the .mythtv folder...

The references appear to be correct from the schedules direct channel dump....

Can someone explain to me why this message is generated? so I can start to clear them up...

Many tx

Re: MFDB: Unknown xmltv channel identifier:

I suspect your SchedulesDirect configuration is using lineups, which means xmltv data for every channel in that lineup is being generated and processed.

For example, your FreeView.xmltv has unknown for 102764, which is for Quest Red +1 (Freeview channel 84), if you check using either mythweb or mythtv-setup channel editor you will probably find that the xmltvid is blank for Quest Red +1.

If you need to get rid of the messages, which are only information, you can either fill-in the missing xmltv ids in mythtv or change your SchedulesDirect configuration to use "channels" instead of "lineups"

Ahhh,.. Tx for the pointer Mike
So? I do have xmltv ids attached,... and they do appear ( on the most part ) in the video source file.xmltv,...

And YES!!,.. I do have lineups enabled,... So ,.. if I can get my head around this is the grabber saying that and xmltv reference from the SD download does not have a corresponding xmltv ref. in the VS.xmltv file???
Or have I still got hold of the wrong end of the stick...
I really should do another full re-scan,.. and pick-up the missing /new channels,.. I didn't wont to do this over Christmas as there would be 'hell to pay',.. if you get my drift..
And also go for 'channels' rather than 'lineups'.... ( quick questions can lineups be edited,.. rather than go via the whole list each time to add new channels)
Tx again
