[CRASH] skipdb option to mythcommflag ignored, causes crash

Reported by: jon.christopher@… Owned by: Raymond Wagner
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.25
Component: MythTV - Mythcommflag Version: 0.24-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Even though I specify the --skipdb flag to mythcommflag, the it attempts to access the database, causing a crash. I tested this on Mac OS X using the latest binary builds from sourceforge, and Otto Kolsi confirmed this on linux.

ProgramInfo::ProgramInfo always attempts to create a database connection. If --video is supplied, this bit of code creates ProgramInfo:

    if (isVideo)
        ProgramInfo pginfo(filename);
        result = BuildVideoMarkup(&pginfo, useDB);

However, if --video is not supplied, ProgramInfo is initialized a little bit later in the !useDB clause, resulting in the same problem.

It seems like the ProgramInfo needs a useDB boolean.

Rework ordering of command line processing in mythcommflag. Inputs are no longer processed and stored to temporary variables, as required by the previous command line parser, but are now pulled out of the parser object as needed. The --skipdb parameter now behaves properly.

Fixes #9515

Use with no options is no longer permitted. The old behavior of running all recordings directly is no longer supported. If the --queue parameter is specified alone, it will queue a commercial detection job for any recording that has not been previously flagged, and is not on a commercial free channel. The --force parameter will queue jobs for all recordings, and the --rebuild will queue jobs to instead rebuild the seektables.

Fixes #9152
