new episode falsely identified as previously recorded

Post by Manul » Tue May 14, 2019 7:40 pm

I have a strange problem: The upcoming episode of "Tatort" is identified as having previously been recorded. That's quite impossible as it's the first airing of this episode. I do, however, have entries for the episode in oldrecorded:

Code: Select all

mysql> select title,subtitle,starttime from program where title like "Tatort%" and subtitle like "Anne%";
+--------+------------------+---------------------+
| title  | subtitle         | starttime           |
+--------+------------------+---------------------+
| Tatort | Anne und der Tod | 2019-05-19 18:15:00 |
| Tatort | Anne und der Tod | 2019-05-20 22:50:00 |
+--------+------------------+---------------------+
2 rows in set (0.01 sec)
If tried deleting these manually but every time I restart mythbackend they get reinserted. I'm at a loss what to do here. Any help greatly appreciated.

This is 2:30.0+fixes.201905010255.a32ec4b~ubuntu18.04.1 running on Ubuntu 18.04.

Okay, I found the problem myself: All upcoming episodes had the same programid. Deleting that solved the false positives.

I have no idea, however, how those programids got into the DB in the first place but that's another issue.
