Hi all,

it seems that i have a problem (many actually, but lets look at the one you
guys can help with ;-0 )

I have "googled" the list and used gossomer to try and find and answer for
It seems very similar to the issue with the '-->' comments in the config
file (which i have removed, previously)


I had a working version of the oztivo/tvguide for a week or so and life was

I saw that myth was reporting an error with mythfilldatabase, i left it go
think it was a network issue/ Internet down/ anything else. Surprise,
surprise....... Now it does not work.

here is what i have done

I have checked the the config file that the comments were removed, and the
all details are correct.(i tacked it on the bottom of this email)
I have logged into the the site and changed the download setting to v2
format and then saved it. then logged back in and changed it back. Cleared
the cache and check it was set to XMLTV.

So now i am stuck, i have no idea why this would work and then bomb out.
The system (combined FE/BE 2xDvico DVB-t cards ) locked up twice over the
last week, but I guess that could have done some thing.

One more thing, its funny, all the data cuts off Last night (sat 5th) at
12pm, except for SBS which has data until Tuesday.

below is the -cut-and-paste- of the config file and the errors.
hope you guys can help!!

Thanks for you time.
