MythTVHere is a simple page I will keep my MythTV patches and other things.
This is not a page on freeview boxes.
This patch allows you to watch Xtraview and RedHot channel
If it is out of date and no longer cleanly commits then email me and I will update it.
RPMs of the 0.18.1 version are also available here
Recommendation SystemActually it isn't just the recommendation system but infact a complete diff of my checkout.
Mythtv databaseIn order to give all your MythTV channels icons and xmltv tags there is now a graphical tool (mythtv-setup). But if you are lazier then you can use my mysql database script. You will need to edit some of the entires to match your area (the default one is North West).
#> mysql -p <uk_rt.sqlYou may also want to copy this uk_rt.xmltv file over the one in your ~/.mythtv/ directory.
Zap2Myth(No longer necessary)Convert the configuration generated by the "tzap" program to a list of channels you can feed directly into mythtv mysql database. This does assume you have a good tzap configuration. I created ~/.tzap.channels.conf by running the following command at different times during one day. In the UK running it once before 17:00 and again after 18:00 catches all channels. You will have to edit the command to suit your region.
#> ./scan -5 dvb-t/uk-WinterHill |cat ~/.tzap/channels.conf - \ |grep -v :0:0:[0-9]*$|sort |uniq > ~/.tzap/channels.conf.new; \ cp -f ~/.tzap/channels.conf.new ~/.tzap/channels.conf;Once you have a good /.tzap/channels.conf file you can run the zap2myth script. As command line parameters it takes channel lists (supplied) depending on your area. The format is pretty simple so please send me channel lists from your part of the world. Optionally you can also supply an xmltv channel file to fill. This file should be copied over your ~/.mythtv/xml_??.xmltv file. For example I run:
#> ./zap2myth.pl -x ~/.mythtv/xml_uk_rt.xmltv UK/common.channels UK/regions/northwest.channels >channels.sql #> mysql -p <channels.sqlIf I wanted to add the radio channels I would also include UK/radio.channels to the command line.
Icons are assumed to be in /usr/share/mythtv/icons/. Extract the icons in the /usr/share/mythtv/ directory.
The generated sql file deleted all channel with indexes below 2000. This allows you to insert channels which will not be destroyed by an update by giving them numbers higher than 2000.
