mythtv listings not updating

Post by necbot » Wed Apr 08, 2015 1:55 am

I have a subscription to schedulesdirect but my listings only ever update if I manually restart the backend. How do I set mythtv to update it's listings at a defined interval... say once a day?

Use mythtv-setup. It's on/near the 11th page. Be sure the program name is
exactly: mythfilldatabase otherwise you'll get no logs. For arguments, use
--dd-grab-all. Check the Suggests time option and Schedules Direct will
tell your backend when to run next (which will be roughly once daily.) Set
the min/max to 0/23 just to be safe and because I don't know what version
you're running (and I'm the bug that ignores the range is only fixed in 0.28-pre.)
