I've just installed Mythdora 5.0 and have pretty much got the system up and running - except for the channel listings.
2008-09-03 .039 Error in 1:1: unexpected end of file (this is just part of the log, but seems to be the important bit) Prior to this I ran tv_grab_uk_rt --configure and made sure the .xmltv (in my case s-video.xtml) file was in /.mythtv When I go back into Myth TV there are no channels in the channel list for my video source - I have a feeling it might be something to do with files being in wrong locations??
Nick, I'm currently having a problem get my channels listing. I've followed your directions and I got stuck at $ tv_grab_na_dtv --configure selected my time zone entered my zip code then got, "Initial site parsing failed, no iframe tag." I've login as you specified in the earlier post. 2008-09-03 .036 FAILED: xmltv returned error code 3328.
-- View this message in context: from the xmltv-users mailing list archive at I'm new to this so forgive me I'm missing something v. I've got Mythtv setup to show tv_grab_uk_rt as my grabber, but when I run 'mythfilldatabase --manual' as per instructions for the first time, I get the following error in the terminal window: 2008-09-03 .927 Connected to database 'mythconverg' at host: localhost Failed to write to /home/mythtv/.xmltv/supplement/tv_grab_uk_rt/channel_at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/XMLTV/line 233.
If running as user=mythtv: # chown -R mythtv:mythtv /home/mythtv/.xmltv/ When the grabber is run, it retrieves an up-to-date list of available channels from the XMLTV supplement server.
2008-09-03 .039 Error in 1:1: unexpected end of file Make sure the user you are configuring the grabber with has write permissions for the /home/mythtv/.xmltv/ directory (and directories/files below it).The EIT grabber had run long enough to get a weeks worth of data, so I thought I’d turn it off and wait for the RT site to come back online.A few days later the wonderful people at the RT had their side all sorted, and I was in a position to re-instate the RT grabber.I used to use the excellent Radio Times XML data with the XMLTV grabber to get my listings for Myth TV.
When the Radio Times data was a little slow in coming over Christmas and New Year, I gave the EIT listings data a try.
