    I'm having a bit of an issue with tvheadend. Everything is working great with zap2xml. However, about every other day I will pull up tvheadend in my browser and find nothing listed under Electronic Program Guide. When I check the configuration I see that the EPG source list is completely blank and I will have to set each one again. After I reboot the box everything will be back up and running fine. At least for the next couple of days. Thoughts? :huh:

    I certainly don't want my PITA statement being misinterpreted. I appreciate what you and others have done.

    I did some additional testing on another box that I have...when I used the TVguide data I had the same issue you are having. When I switched to zap2it data the programs loaded. Looks like there is a code issue in my program for tvguide that is keeping tvheadend from loading the programs.

    If you change to zap2it in the zap2xml addon. You'll need to reboot...then go into the tvheadend web interface and change the epg source to the zap2it listing instead of the tvguide listing. Once you do that, you can rerun the internal grabber (might take two times) and you should see programs load.

    I'll take a look at my tvguide code and see what is going on there - but let me know if this works for you!

    Hallelujah! That did it.

    What a PITA! Of course,99.9% was me not having any idea what I was doing.

    I can certainly understand you wanting to make this process easier. On the bright side I now understand the process of setting it up much better than I would have.

    I owe you one. If I can ever help, just let me know.

    ok good - BTW you can have that field displayed in the channel tab window...not sure why it's missing on yours. Just click on the drop down icon on one of the column names and select the field to have it appear in the window.
    OK everything looks right here. I would suggest leaving it like it is overnight. It will autoupdate the guide overnight and if we're lucky start pulling the program data. NOt sure why it isn't just working now, but it looks like all your settings are right. The only other setting I see different from mine is on the epg grabber tab. I have the Channel Numbers (heuristic) setting disabled. I don't know why that would cause any issue but if you want to disable it and set the priority to 1 before you leave it for the night - that's my last suggestion for now. :(

    Thanks! I will disable it just in case and give it a shot. Fingers crossed.

    another way to make sure they are connected is to enable the update channel name button on the epg grabber tab - you should see the channel names change to the station number/name that is in the xmltv file.
    also - I think you'll need to turn off the automatically name from network button on the channels tab.

    Ok. I turned off the automatic name from network. Rebooted and got the log below. I don't recall seeing the scanfile lines before.

    for now - on the channels tab try turning off the automatically map epg source buttons and manually select the epg source for each channel - then post that screen again.
    It is likely that the channel is not mapping to teh epg source since you have the automatically name the network button checked - which is using the names that the stations want and not the call letters that are in the epg data. Hopefully if you manually map the epg source it will solve that issue.

    When I turned the check boxes off and set them manually the correct feeds were checked. I unchecked and rechecked them. Don't know that it helped any.

    Please post a screen grab of the channels tab. Also - open the log window...and from the epg grabber tab press the rerun internal grabber button and post the log result.

    Here you go...

    I apologize - in copying and pasting the frequencies - I moved the numbers in the wrong direction. All the Khz numbers on the list should be 6 lower then what I sent you. My mistake.

    Here's an updated list:

    Sorry about that!

    Not a problem. I probably deserve it.

    Going to quit for a while and watch the Olympic Opening Ceremony with the family.

    I'll let you know what happens.


    Pulled the sdcard and loaded a fresh install of LE 7.90.003

    Installed the last version of 4.2 that contained the working list of muxes:from the link you provided and installed the update
    The web interface will not work.

    I'm going to uninstall and clean it up and install 4.2 from the repo.

    I will then need some guidance on installing the muxes manually....

    I will do as you ask and make sure all folders are deleted and reinstall. Hopefully that will get me there. I really appreciate the time you have taken to help me out with this.

    I know it doesn't show in this thread, but, I'm pretty computer savvy.

    I can't seem to get 4.0 working. The video that was put together used 4.0. However, it was on an android box. Just perhaps there is a difference there.

    For the life of me I can't access 4.2 through the web interface so that is a no go.

    Where did you get the tvheadend 4.2 build that you linked through dropbox? I know you said that was the original LE version.
