[mythtv-users] Mythfilldatabase error

If you're running mythtv 0.7 try this.

In programs/mythfilldatabase/filldata.cpp:

At around line 188 you find:

if (split.size() > 0)
pginfo->endts = split[0];
pginfo->endts = "";

Change it to:

if (split.size() > 0)
pginfo->endts = split[0];
pginfo->endts = QString::null;

I found that on the myth-dev list when I had the
problem you described and that fixed it.  When run the
first time, mythfilldatabase (for me) gets the data
for the current day, then 'wget's the channel icons,
then gets the data for the rest of the week.  If it
segfaults after the first day, it's not working right.
