> My pleasure. Unfortunately I'm having a nightmare getting xmltv
configured. I still can't get mythtv-setup to run from user mythtv. It
just exits, doing nothing. So I went through the procedure of running the
command line configuration for tv_grab_zz_sdjson and selecting all the
channels (not a fun job, terrible interface). It produced a config file in
/home/mythtv/.mythtv but mythfilldatabase was looking for it in
/home/steve/.mythtv So I created a symlink for it there. Now when I run
mythfilldatabase I get the output below. It says unexpected end of file. I
looked at the file. It has info in it like username and pw for schedules
direct, and a bunch of channel items. Not sure what it was looking for that
it didn't get.
