#4062 closed defect (invalid)

long term epg does not work

Reported by: erez0001@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: unknown
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


tuning to some channels ( e.g. MBC2, MBC4, MBC-action on nileset) on my STB gives me at least one day of epg (even if i just switched on the STB).

however doing the same on mythtv, does not yield any epg at all.

i checked with mythtv-setup that i use epg from air.

We need more information, such as how this information is broadcast. EIT with non standard address? Non-standard data stream? Which country and is this DVB-T,-C or -S?

What version of mythtv are you using?

the EPG for these channels are working fine with MythTV. I think the problem is that you need to activate the "use on air guide" from the channels setup in Mythtv-setup. for some reason this flag for these channels is disabled after scanning.

The channel scanner will only mark the channel with use on air guide if the broadcast information says that there is eit data for this channel.

Obviously the provider couldn't be bothered to setup their broadcast equipment properly.
