xmltv - zap2it - issue

Added by Joe Rizzo 14 days ago

Hi guys,

Hopefully i explain this properly. I used "script.xmltv.tvheadend" and followed this guide

https://github.com/rocky4546/script.xmltv.tvheadend/wiki/Guide:-How-to-Setup-XMLTV-for-TVHeadEnd#how-to-manually-update-the-epg

Had some bumps but I seem to finally was able to create a xmltv.xml file. My hopefully last hurdle is as follows. When I run the internal grabber in tvheadend I'm hit with the below error:

2018-10-10 13:04:56.000 xmltv: /usr/bin/tv_grab_file: grab /usr/bin/tv_grab_file
2018-10-10 13:04:56.002 spawn: Executing "/usr/bin/tv_grab_file"
2018-10-10 13:04:56.010 spawn: cat: /home/hts/.xmltv/xmltv.xml: Permission denied
2018-10-10 13:04:56.011 xmltv: /usr/bin/tv_grab_file: no output detected
2018-10-10 13:04:56.011 xmltv: /usr/bin/tv_grab_file: grab returned no data_

Ive tried changing rights to 777, deleting the symbolic link and rerunning the script to recreate everything. Manually recreating following the instructions on the site, but still the same error. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

what are the permissions of /home/hts and /home/hts/.xmltv? What are the permissions of the directory it is linked to?

answered in the order in which you asked:

drwxrwxrwx 3 hts hts 4096 Oct 10 13:08 hts
lrwxrwxrwx 1 hts hts 25 Oct 10 13:08 .xmltv -> /home/administrator/xmltv
drwxrwxrwx 6 hts hts 4096 Oct 10 05:34 xmltv

sudo su hts
touch /home/hts/.xmltv/xmltv.xml

Then if you still get the error try changing the permissions on /home/hts/.xmltv/xmltv.xml to 777

If that doesn't work maybe you might find something helpful in https://freetoairamerica.wordpress.com/2014/12/03/some-hints-for-getting-free-to-air-satellite-channels-into-the-electronic-program-guide-in-kodi-or-xbmc-or-another-frontend/

Unfortunately nothing worked. I am open to any other suggestions.
