EIT data mismatches program descriptions.

Post by KennyB » Tue Sep 18, 2018 9:08 pm

I use to have this bug way back in 0.27. There was a patch where a user deadletter had figured out to fix it, but it was never committed into 0.28. Is it fixed in 0.29? Sadly I started having trouble compiling 0.28 with his changes so never tried, but I know the 0.28 version in the MythBuntu PPAs still has this issue.


I'm just trying to record ATSC over-the-air programming, I don't want to have to pay for schedules direct to watch free television.

From what I understand, this is a program because local programming schedules will change, and the EIT tuner will not change the descriptions of programs unless the newer description is shorter/longer than the last, forget which...

But more importantly, is there a way to simply maually purge and renew the EIT data rather than rely on it to be "updated"? Then I could perhaps stick it into a cron job and run it every night.
