These might be known issues, but I'll just list them anyway. with the
latest svn revision (25419), both jamu and the built-in grabber fail.
1) Built in Grabber
the built-in grabber successfully calls tmdb.pl but then does not seem
to be able to parse the output. I traced the problem to the
function in metadatadownload.cpp in libs/libmythui
it successfully downloads the metadata. But the DOM processing seems to
QByteArray result = grabber.readAll();
QDomElement root = doc.documentElement();
QDomElement item = root.firstChildElement("item");
VERBOSE(VB_GENERAL, QString("DOM Processing Done"));
My "Dom Processing Done" debugging statement prints indicating that the
grabber returned something and that the dom processing code parsed it.
Unfortunately, it did not return anything as item is set to NULL and the
remaining code that adds the metadata to the MetadataLookup object fails
to run. That fails the entire metadata lookup.
In particular, the "while (!item.isNull())" on the next line fails
jamu just fails to run and prints some error messages. my python foo is
weak so I could not really debug this.
! Warning - Creating an instance caused an error for one of: MythDB or
MythVideo, error('MythDBConn' object has no attribute 'close')
! Warning - MythTV python bindings could not be imported,
error('MythDBConn' object has no attribute 'close')
! Error: The MythTV python interface is not installed or Cannot connect
to MythTV Backend. MythTV meta data cannot be updated
I've verified that the python libraries are being installed properly.
