[mythtv-users] Problem with program guide

That was just an example. Every channel "x" has a description "x adding
channel" when you look in the channel menu, or in the guide (the left most
column). So the history channel, which is on channel 42 where I live, says
"42 adding channel" rather than "42 HISTORY" as it says on the table on
schedulesdirect.org. I tried to post screen shots, but the moderators have
to approve my post since it's larger that 40kb. However, when I record a
program, all the relevant information is there, such as the name of the
episode, the synopsis, but the channel is still displayed as"x adding
I also have a stranger problem. When I first set my system up and began
receiving data form Schedulesdirect.org, somewhere in the middle of my
lineup the channels fell out of sync. Somewhere around channel 24 there are
a couple of channels that do not belong (that is to say, channel 24 has the
correct information, but channel 25 does not, and channel 26 does not.
Channel 27 has the information for channel 25, channel 28 has the
information for channel 26...). I assumed that was do to some irregularity
between what I receive from my cable provider and what I should receive, but
I never had time to fix it. I waited a day until I had time, and when I
checked again, the data matched exactly, and the "extra" two channels were
no longer listed in my guide. I then figured this was just something that
went wrong with a "mythfilldatabase" that was corrected on the next
automatic run over night. Then, last night in an attempt to correct the
first problem I mentioned, in poking around on schedules direct, I
edited/saved my lineup, and then did another mythfilldatabase. As of this
morning, my listing is off again, but if history repeats itself, all I have
to do to fix it is wait till tomorrow. I don't like that solution.
Are these problems unique? Has anyone else experienced anything similar? I
know of one solution, but it seems like treating the symptoms and not
addressing the cause. I would imagine this is caused either by bad data
coming in, or a database problem. I haven't rearranged anything on
schedules direct, and I haven't messed with the database, so I'm not sure
where to go next. Any advice would be appreciated.
I've tried searching the wiki, but I have a hard time describing those two
problems in a keyword search string.
