Mythweb now never updates DataDirect status (Solved)

Post by yawlhoo » Fri Feb 01, 2019 4:38 pm

My subscription with Schedules Direct is good thru early 2020, but MythWeb's status page never gets this updated status; for example, this morning this is its report:

Last mythfilldatabase run started on Fri Feb 1 2019, 12:19 AM and is Successful.
There's guide data until 2019-02-22 03:30:00 (21 days).
DataDirect Status: Your subscription expires on Mon Jan 28 2019 2:54 PM

I have tried unsuccessfully to find the code that prints "DataDirect Status: Your subscription expires..." into the status page in the MythWeb source code, but it is pretty difficult to parse.

Last year I noticed this worked fine. Maybe it has to do with switching to an XMLTV grabber?

Just remove the question mark from the last sentence above;).

mythweb uses the Services API to get the data. Try:

Code: Select all

curl localhost:6544/Status/GetStatusHTML
It comes from the backend and is saved in the DataDirectMessage setting.

You can change it (as I did) with:

Code: Select all

curl --data Key=DataDirectMessage --data Value='Unabilable with XMLTV' localhost:6544/Myth/PutSetting
