#11349 closed Bug Report - General (Won't Fix)

Missing mythfilldatabase arguments after running mythtv-setup

Reported by: Matlo <mat.lau@…> Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Mythtv-setup Version: 0.25-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: mythtv-setup, mythfilldatabase
Cc: Ticket locked: no


In mythtv-setup, I added the following mythfilldatabase arguments: -- "--no_cryptedcplus --no_cryptedpprem"

This allows to specifies grabber arguments. In my specific case, the arguments make the grabber skip encrypted shows.

The problem is, if I let mythtv-setup run mythfilldatabase at exit, mythtv-setup does not give the arguments to mythfilldatase. As a result, the tv listings are wrongly updated (in my case, encrypted shows are added).

This should be handled in the XMLTV grabber configuration file not by mythfilldatabase.

What's the "XMLTV grabber configuration file"?

comment:3 Changed 6 years ago by Matlo <mat.lau@…>

I have to add that mythfilldatabase is run perdiodically without issue, i.e. the right arguments are given to mythfilldatabase.

Mythtv-setup never runs mythfilldatabase, it merely suggests you do so manually if you have changed your channel lineup. Aside from using the more proper configuration location, this is simply not a problem that exists within MythTV itself.

Just as a correction to the last comment. mythtv-setup does run mythfilldatabase when you hit the "Fetch channels from listings source" button. Pushing the button calls CardInput::sourceFetch() which calls SourceUtil::UpdateChannelsFromListings?() which runs mythfilldatabase.

I still think this should be a won't fix though.

when you run tv_grab_fr --configure it write a configuration file. For mythtv this is written to ~/.mythtv/{sourcename}.xmltv

You'll need to speak to the maintainer of the tv_grab_fr grabber to know what you need to put in this config file instead of passing arguments at runtime to the script.

I could also directly modify the grabber... I don't really care if you consider this bug as "not a problem". I will keep answering "No" to mythtv-setup and it will work fine.

mythtv-setup does not ask that question. Mythbuntu scripts do and possible other distributions offer similar scripts, but mythtv-setup does not. I've never even heard of zenity.

Thanks for all the answers. I'm going to report the issue in the right tracker.
