MythTV / Re: Recent versions of xmltv break tv_grab_au_ice script
« on: August 28, 2007, 01:43:46 AM »
Thanks Russell. You're quite right, due to a silly error on my part I was still using version 2 of the grabber and once I installed version 3 properly all was well again.  I must say I'm extremely impressed by your customer service, I really didn't expect to receive high quality technical support in the middle of the night less than an hour after posting a question!  The fact that version 3 of the grabber has been around since January speaks volumes for how on the ball you all are at IceTV too, seems you dealt with the changes to XMLTV very promptly.

I recently updated the packages on my Fedora Core 6 mythtv system and now mythfilldatabase now longer works, instead of updating the scheduling database I get error messages like the following:

2007-08-27 23:59:08.589 Updating source #1 (IceTV) with grabber tv_grab_au
2007-08-27 23:59:08.590 Found 12 channels for source 1 which use grabber
2007-08-27 23:59:08.720 Grabber has capabilities:
2007-08-27 23:59:08.720 Grabbing XMLTV data using tv_grab_au is not supported. You may need to upgrade to the latest version of XMLTV.

A quick web search suggests that there's been a change to XMLTV that has broken compability with a lot of existing schedule grabber scripts (see, and tv_grab_au_ice will need some modifications before it will work again.  Has anyone else hit this problem and, more importantly, found a fix for it?

I'm using tv_grab_au_ice version 3 (the most recent available), xmltv-0.5.48-73.fc6 and mythtv-0.20.2-163.fc6.

Edit: Nevermind, seems I was actually using tv_grab_au_ice version 2 (my download of version 3 picked up a superflous .htm extension and so didn't get used).  Version 3 has the --capabilites feature now required by XMLTV which was missing in version 2.

IceTV EPG Content / The Closer/Snick & Tuck - Miami

Ice TV EPG has Snip & Tuck - Miami on at 10.35pm tonight (09/04/07) on Nine but that's incorrect, it should be The Closer instead.

I've been using MythTV for getting on for a year now, but only signed up with IceTV today.  The setup process was better documented and easier than any of the alternatives that I've tried, though I am having a few teething problems with some channels not getting listings.
