Importing EPG.XML into MythTV in linux

Post by Skyecairns » Fri Dec 07, 2018 4:59 pm

Somehow I managed to get MythTV working in Linux. I'm no techie by a long short. What I'd like to do is import a EPG xml file that I get daily in Windows 7 into my MythTV. How do I do that. At the present the guide is only partially completed as I think I'm getting the info over the air. Thanks.

You can try the cmdline. Here is one I've used in the past :

Code: Select all

mythfilldatabase --refresh-all --verbose xmltv --file --sourceid 1 --xmlfile EPG.xml
I don't remember how I compiled this, and I have not used it in a while. The xmlfile would need to use the same chanids, and start and stop times as the database. The sourceid listed will need to match your EIT sourceid in the database ( I think).
