No 'over the air' EPG data for one channel

Added by Paul Thexton almost 9 years ago

Hi all,

I'm having a problem which has only started yesterday and I'm a little confused by, I have a dual tuner setup - one tuner is a em28xx based DVB-T2 tuner, and the other a TechniSat SkyStar DVB-S/S2 tuner.

I have always used the over the air EPG grabber to avoid the need to have to set up XMLTV, and until yesterday it has been working perfectly well.

However, all of a sudden I have no EPG data available for E4 - all other channels have full EPG data available. I am able to watch the channel on either tuner.

The other channels on the same DVB-T mux and the channels on the same DVB-S mux have full EPG data.

I've had a look in the code and there does appear to calls to tvhlog to produce information while it's parsing EPG data, however I've tried running with debugging enabled but can't see any logging related to parsing of EPG information.

Can anyone give me any pointers as to where to look to try and work out what's gone wrong? I don't want to resort to using XMLTV just yet, as there's no reason the OTA stuff shouldn't work.

Ok, I've managed to get the EPG back by ungrouping the satellite provided E4 services from the E4 service presented over DVB-T.

It seems as though something about the EPG data coming from the E4 services on satellite was upsetting the overall EPG database. I've separated out all of the E4 services available on satellite in to distinct channels for the time being to see which, if any, can subsequently provide me with a full EPG data set.

It would still be nice to be able to get at the logging from the EPG parser, so if anybody can tell me how to enable that module in the logging I would be grateful as I'm still none the wiser as to what's actually happening, it could range from there being simply no EPG data available at all to the data being formatted in a way which TVH is not happy with, or anywhere in between. :(
