#3681 closed defect (fixed)

mythfilldatabase erroneously deletes record schedules for the current day

Reported by: Tom Dexter <digitalaudiorock@…> Owned by: stuartm
Priority: major Milestone: 0.21
Component: mythfilldatabase Version: unknown
Severity: medium Keywords: mythfilldatabase schedules
Cc: Ticket locked: no


mythfilldata always deletes records from the record table with types of single, override, or dontrecord whose enddate is the current day.

The problem is in the clearOldDBEntries in the file programs/mythfilldatabase/filldata.cpp (in 0.20) and libs/libmythtv/programdata.cpp (in 0.21):

query.prepare("DELETE FROM record WHERE (type = :SINGLE "

"OR type = :OVERRIDE OR type = :DONTRECORD) " "AND enddate < NOW();");

query.bindValue(":SINGLE", kSingleRecord); query.bindValue(":OVERRIDE", kOverrideRecord); query.bindValue(":DONTRECORD", kDontRecord); query.exec();

Since enddate is a date column (not datetime) it's getting compared to NOW() as a datetime at 12:00AM, thus always less than NOW(). Using either CURDATE(), CURRENT_DATE, or CAST(NOW() AS DATE) in place of NOW() would work correctly.

Just this also going to get patched in the release-0-20-fixes branch (in programs/mythfilldatabase/filldata.cpp)?

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [13793]) Fixes #3681

Use CURDATE() instead of NOW() to prevent ProgramData::clearOldDBEntries deleting certain recording rules early.
