I thought I'd put this here in case it helps others in future (I've seem
similar threads recently).
I have been suffering automatic mythfilldatabase issues on and off since
0.24 where it always works on the CLI. As people have said this is
because of some permission etc difference between your login and the
In 0.26 this was still happening so I su'd to mythtv
sudo su mythtv
mythfilldatabase -v all
It came up with the usual xmltv error 13 (the annoying one I've been
googling for ages. But I noticed it also gave *the actual command* it
ran to get the error:
command=nice tv_grab_uk_rt --config-file
'/home/mythtv/.mythtv/dvta.xmltv' --output /tmp/mythwvJ6G1, timeout=0
I ran this manually as the mythtv user and bingo - the grabber came up
with failure to write to a tmp directory - not the one in the command
but one in the mythtv .xmltv directory (it was owned by root).
chown mythtv:mythtv on that directory now its working perfectly :)
hope this helps someone (not trying to teach anyone to suck eggs here,
just trying to give something back to a wonderful project / community.
