sounds like my setup - I'm still on 0.16 though
can you run:
dpkg-query -s xmltv
That'll get the xmltv version.
it sounds like a mis-mapping between the xmltv ids used in myth and
those used in tv_grab_uk_rt.
You may need to upgrade xmltv (latest is version 0.5.39-2 I think)
Do you have mysql control centre running anywhere? It'll let you examine
the myth database tables.
(It runs on windows boxes too)
FYI, here's the script my cronjob runs:
tv_grab_uk_rt > $FILE
if [ \( $? -eq 0 \) -a \( -f "$FILE" \) ]
mythfilldatabase --no-delete --file 7 -1 $FILE
echo tv_grab_uk_rt Failed
my xmltv config is attached for a few of the sky channels
