XMLTV grabber works but 0 events gets injected into epg database
I have set up xmltv succesfully. XMLTV grabbing works ok. I get the following output:
. . . Apr 25 12:47:28 xmltv: Channel "Comedy Central" automapped to xmltv-channel "Comedy Central" (name matches) Apr 25 12:47:28 xmltv: /usr/bin/tv_grab_huro: Parsing completed. XML contained 88 channels, 0 events, 0 new events injected in EP
It seems that tvheadend does not use the data grabbed from xmltv.
Is it maybe because the channels mostly also have their own satelite epg ? I would like to use xmltv's epg instead of the broadcasted one because it has better and more precise descriptions there.
Thanks for the great work!

Thanks for the attention Rigolo !
I only ran the grabber once yet. It is set to run in every 12 hours.
A lot of channels got mapped but no new events get injected into the database. The epg database stays unchanged (the previously - from dvb source - grabbed epg data)
Maybe the problem is that tvheadend does not overwrite an already existing epg data with xmltv grabbed one.

I tried the grabber myself but it seems broken.
[email protected]:~$ tv_grab_huro
using config filename /home/andoma/.xmltv/tv_grab_huro.conf
getting list of channels: could not fetch http://www.port.hu/pls/tv/tv.prog, error: 500 Can't connect to www.port.hu:80 (connect: Connection refused), aborting
How did you configure it?

I do have the same Issue:
I am using TVheadend 2.11 on a Ubuntu 10.04 Server 64 bit and a PVR-350 as Analog Video Input.
XMLTV is configured fine, and produces a file like expected with "tv_grab_ch_search --output FILE"
In the Web-surface some Channels (i do not have a XMLTV source for all Channels) also have a mapped XMLTV Channel.
But it do not Display any EPG Data in The Homescreen:
Aug 18 15:09:59 xmltv: Grabbing "Switzerland (tv.search.ch)" using command "/usr/bin/tv_grab_ch_search"
Aug 18 15:27:38 xmltv: /usr/bin/tv_grab_ch_search: Parsing completed. XML contained 28 channels, 15896 events, 0 new events injected in EPG
Any Ideas? What info can i provide?
PS: Everything but the EPG is functioning impressively well. Thanks for the great work!
