[mythtv-users] tv_grab_au problems + segfault

I found when I first played with myth back in the days of 0.14 that if
the guide was empty, a number of segfaults would occur, such as when
you try to peruse the tv guide.

As for why your data isn't showing up, I can only assume you haven't
affiliated your channels to the correct xmltv id's that the script is
creating in the DB for you.

In your channel setup, you need to enter something *like* the
following into each channel...


You would need to verify the actual xmltv ID's that your script is
using and enter the right on in for each channel.

I hope that helps, somehow.  I found it a little hard to explain.
