In TVE2 also the match problem

Hi,

Same problem here with TVE3.. I thought it would try to match based on just channel number.. But that isn't happening. Re-scanning / reloading now to see if that solves it

Hi,

In TVE3, the "DisplayName" in MP is pretty new, and I should use it for mapping instead of "name".
I will change it.

RE: TVE3 Mapping ATSC channels.
ATSC mapping has always allowed mapping by number (Major/Minor).
I will have to double check some of the code to see if things have changed in MP.

Prior to running the plugin, are these showing as ATSC if you edit the channel in TVServer Setup?
Correct Major and Minor Channel numbers?

Thanks,
patrick

Yes. The correct info is shown on the ATSC tab.

After figuring out how to edit the database manually in SQL Server Management Express, I changed the "name" field the to proper name as listed in the Schedules Direct lineup. After doing this and then running the plugin, everything matched up and pulled data just fine.

So looks like the plugin just needs to use "displayName" for mapping purposes, since this is the field that is changed in TV Server Management.

Ok - had an issue with the channel lineup

Ok, problem solved (although painfully): I deleted the channel lineup in schedulesdirect, and it worked. It seems there was some issue with one of the channels.

@All,

This is from the SD forums for DirectTV users from danielk.

I just wanted to send a warning out there for this.
DirectTV has begun mapping their HD channels to the same channel as a related SD channel.
For example AETV and AETVHD will both be mapped to channel 265.
Which one you get when changing to that channel depends on which STB you have.
It may take a couple days before this rolls out for our DirectTV lineups, right now you
will see either AETV or AETVHD in the Schedules Direct DirectTV lineups.
Your application may need to have some smarts added to detect which one to add
to a user's lineup, but for now users can select one or the other when the two
channels on one channel number rolls out, if your application can't handle two
channels on the same channel number.


jelizalde,
Glad you got it working again, looks like it was a problem with a program schedule on one of the channels.
If it happens again let me know your lineup details and I will see if I can reproduce.

Patrick,
First off thanks again for developping the schedules direct plugin so fast. I've got one problem though. I was missing a few channels after switching to schedules direct. At first I thought it was a lineup problem (and for most of the channels it was), but then after reporting it, they got fixed, but there was one more channel that wasn't reporting data. I checked with schedules direct, and then used xmltv from the command line, and verified that the channel is indeed present. I've checked the options you suggested in the first part after switching from zap2it (worked for all channels but this one), then deleted and re-loaded the channels mapping but still no dice. I'm in US zipcode 45324 with a fairborn Time-warner cable listing - I'm specifically missing channel 13 wbdt. I know the channel is present from the raw xmltv output (both the correct number and the call letters), can you see if you can reproduce? Sorry for the annoyance, but I know its got to be something I'm doing wrong with schedules direct, or a bug. Thanks!
Jai

Hi,

I will look at it.
Probably will not be until tomorrow though (heading to a bar to watch some football)
In the meantime if you have a chance can you post your log file after an update?
Not sure what version you are using but the epg.log if MP stand alone or the tv.log if using TVE3.
You can paste it to http://pastebin.team-mediaportal.com/

Thanks,
patrick
