MythUtil-Channel-XMLTV-getLineup is a python script which is part of a set of related utility scripts (MythUtil-Channel-XMLTV-getLineup MythUtil-Channel-videosource MythUtil-Channel-HDHR-channelCheck MythUtil-Channel-HDHR-visibilityCheck MythUtil-Channel-visibility) that may be useful for users to maintain their channel lineup.

The definitive source location for this script is located on github, which is where one should obtain the current script.

MythUtil-Channel-XMLTV-getLineup reports and optionally updates the MythTV channel lineup based on the XMLTV --get-lineup output from a supported grabber (only a few grabbers support --get-lineup)

Usage:

 MythUtil-Channel-XMLTV-getLineup [-h] [--backend BACKEND] [--port PORT]
                                  [--username USERNAME]

  • Scenario: You want to compare your Schedules Direct lineup data with your MythTV channels
 tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite --quiet --get-lineup --config-file ~/.mythtv/CABLE.xmltv | MythUtil-Channel-XMLTV-getLineup --videosource-id 1
