blebscript.sh

This is the script I used to download stuff from bleb. Pinched it from USEnet somewhere.

#!/bin/sh
echo “-Remove old data.xml file if it exists…”
rm /tmp/data.xml
echo “-Download updated listings from http://www.bleb.org…”
wget -q -O /tmp/tvdata.zip “http://www.bleb.org/tv/data/listings?days=0..6&format=xmltv&channels=bbc1, bbc2, itv1, ch4, five, bbc3, bbc4, bbc_news24, bravo, discovery, e4, itv2, living_tv, paramount, paramount2, scifi, sky_one, sky_one_mix, tcm, uk_bright_ideas, uk_drama, uk_gold, uk_history, uk_style, uktv_documentary, uktv_people, &file=zip”
echo “-Uncompress..”
cd /tmp
unzip -o /tmp/tvdata.zip
echo “-Update MythTV..”
mythfilldatabase –file 1 -1 /tmp/data.xml

I don’t have to use this any more since they updated xmltv to use the radio times web site again.

pvr channel ids

Please note that I no longer update any of my PVR stuff – Douglas

channel_ids file from the xmltv package. Lives somewhere in /usr/share/xmltv/uk_grabber/channel_ids

# channel_ids
#
# This file maps Radio Times channel ids to XMLTV style.
#
# The format of this file is one channel per line, each line has three
# fields separated by colons: the XMLTV id, Radio Times id, and then
# the third field if nonempty is an additional (English or numeric)
# display name for the channel. Blank lines and comments are ignored.

Introduction

THESE PAGES NO LONGER UPDATED – HAVE MOVED HOUSE AND NO LONGER HAVE MY PVR SET UP.

This is a set of pages describing my experiences with my MythTV box. It is not intended to be an installation guide, the links below can help with that. Probably not of much use to those in NTSC areas.

Here is my very small gallery.

A picture of the setup is also here at Flickr.

Hints and Tips

Jittery TV Picture ?

Go to Setup and the Recording profiles. Change all the resolutions to the PAL resolution of 768 (horizontal) x 576 (vertical)

Rubbish Video Playback on PVR 350

Everything is rubbish except for things recorded via the PVR. Which means DVD’s and mpeg4 / avi files do not play very well. There may be an mplayer patch around that will help with this.

Where Does The Remote Thingy Go

I might just be stupid but it took me quite a long time.
