#11287 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

mythtv-setup can not add video sources when a large lineup exists in Schedules Direct

Description

My cable company got the wise idea of completely switching their lineups today. I followed the age old advice of simply deleting the existing video sources, and trying to re-add them. However, the Data Direct lineup box never populates. I'm leveraging schedules direct.

Here are the only relevant lines from the log with -v most:

2012-12-11 18:58:49.756949 I  DataDirect: Deleting temporary files

Searching the mailing list, I can across this email thread, and it appears to be a bug associated with the switch from leveraging wget to MDM and it timing out too early. http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/530565#530565

I would submit a patch to increase the time out, but I'm not sure what the most reasonable setting should be. I can see this is impacting other users as well, and hadn't noticed a bug report for it yet.

Per the email thread, I applied the following patch:

     {

That said, 45 might have been too long. I think upping it from 10 to ~15-20 might have been sufficient in my case, based on me counting out loud while watching the console scroll to where it was successful.

Sorry, hit submit too soon - Applying that change did "fix" the problem for me.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

In afa03f27a2fb442800f148fb28da1f7585a2f02f/mythtv:

Bump MDM::downloadNow() timeout up to 60 seconds.

The previous 10-second timeout was causing issues when trying to
download large lineups from Schedules Direct. This commit bumps
the downloadNow() timeout to 60 seconds. This is a blocking call,
so if the caller doesn't want to potentially block for that long,
they should be use one of the non-blocking methods.

Fixes #11287.
