Hi all,
after a long running problem,

                    with myth/xmltv, I came across these two progs,which seem to provide a better solution for the whole XMLTV /guide data  side of mythtv.The added bonus is that  Bill Gates has given me (unkowingly) a working myth installation ,getting dvb and sky UK digital programs and full listings   !!!!with minimal setup... hey if I can do it , anybody can  .        .....................instructions & d/load in readme.txt & at   at bottom of page

                     according to m/softs TOS you should be a windows user to access the data,
.....I am  (just not on that machine)

wiki to follow if no objections....mods ?   EDIT why can't  one report ones own post to mods ?
EDIT  done
will polish and categorise when I've learned how to  ;D....unless there are any volunteers   ;)

Hi all (again)
after numerous reinstalls, I'm still having the same problem, so, as no-one else seems to have encountered this I can only conclude that either:
                1)'s peculiar to my hardware....unlikely as it's all common stuff

(and much more likely)
                2)'s down to RBFS,.......Repetitive Brain Fart Syndrome        ;D ;D ;D

Soooooo......I've given up on xmltv,.......but not on myth, as I've (hopefully ) found a better alternative,

Hi all , and apologies BUT

after yet another install, myth setup, from computing,  is still not offering any xmltv grabbers,

I know I'm thick guys , but even so, it shouldn' be this hard, should it ?

Has anyone run into this  before?

Hi macaroni,

does that mean installations from existing dvd's are not updated/upgraded, ie a net install is the only way to get a system that's  properly updateable/upgradeable ?.........I'm  confused.......not hard I know

I've just finished a new install ,updated/ upgraded , applied kmserver fix
(I've not installed the dvb tuner, or run xmltv grabber from the desktop.)the pvr150 is installed according to myth setup as ivtv mpeg2
myth setup is still refusing to load  any xmltv configuration and still defaults to schedules direct

can someone please shed some light on this before  my brain explodes !

Hi purps,
thanks for response....yes there is no problem with the dvb -t side of things, channels scan and display correctly, and the epg is ok.
The problem is that I'm trying to get an s-video output (from a sky sattelite box with an external channel changer) into Myth via the pvr150, so xmltv is a must,as there is no eit data because the input is analogue.

...and the real problem is that myth-setup, from computing menu, tries to load xml configuration,fails and defaults to schedules direct,which doesn't cover the UK.

I've tried fresh installs, of lmce,and the problem is constant, which leads me to think that I'm missing something very obvious, especially as no-one else seems to have the same problem,
any pointers would be appreciated,

Hi all,
clean install, updated, upgraded, and gone to myth setup in computing.
Location is UK and timezone info in web admin is ok.
No problem setting up dvb-t usb dual tuner & all works fine.
Trying to setup my hauppauge 150 to capture from sky+ box via s-video,...

I've followed the wiki instructions and

"General" settings are all default except broadcast standard is europe -west, PAL-I, pal-teletext and timezone set to auto.
I've setup a video source for my pvr150 (setup in webadmin) as RadioTimes , and myth-setup  tries to load xmltv configuration, fails, and defaults back to schedules direct

tv_grab_uk_rt is present in /usr/bin and produces a config file in .xmltv ....
trying to copy this to home/house(user)/.mythtv errors out, as .mythtv doesn't exist,...
creating the directory and copying the file over  to  /home/house/.mythtv/RadioTimes.xmltv, then running mythfilldatabase --manual errors out as " failing to connect to schedules direct"...
...returning to computing/myth setup still gives no option of any other grabber than schedules direct.
 SOoooo, can anyone spot the error I'm obviously making ?

any help would be greatly appreciated,
thanks in advance,

Hi Kezza

....Computing, web admin, login, wizard, devices, media directors.....add your t500 as  PVR500 tuner1&2 ,update, quick reload router.
Goto ... computing, myth setup, tuner cards... and it should be there....(use arrow keys to navigate in myth)
if not goto a command line and ... should be listed

hi all,
it would appear that during boot,the nvidia card ( & also the ION I'm now using ) is outputting @50hz, untill driver kicks in , then @60 hz(vesa standard)

the tv, Sharp Acqous LC**X20E/S will only accept 50Hz on inputs 4 & 5, and only 60Hz on input 6

the avwizard option of 1080p @50Hz does not appear to work. (bug ?)

after a lot of head scratching.......


when rebooting for AV-wizard, connect a vga cable to input 7 of tv ,press shift key as normal,
       -select dvi/hdmi....1080p...60hz   DO NOT PRESS ENTER.....change tv input to hdmi 6, wait untill notification from tv of input change disappears.....NOW press ENTER

the delay is so the av wizard doesn't time out and reset while changing inputs (which is  somewhat slow).......complete avwizard as normal.......

@ KYFALCON  can only suggest  a tv input problem as above
