Program not found in PAT! again!
My MythTV backend is pretty stable, except occasionally I end up with
several gigs of logfile because of this really (really) irritating error
message:

2008-01-13 00:16:52.904 Program #108 not found in PAT!
Program Association Table
PSIP tableID(0x0) length(21) extension(0x3)
version(26) current(1) section(0) last_section(0)
tsid: 3
programCount: 3
program number 0 has PID 0x 10 data 0x0 0x0 0x224 0x16
program number 55500 has PID 0x 1e data 0x216 0x204 0x224 0x30
program number 50 has PID 0x 32 data 0x0 0x50 0x224 0x50

Despite numerous googlings, searching through my gmail mythtv-users, and
trying to find the offending table in mythconverg I am still no closer to
finding out how to resolve this problem when it persists. Suggestions
include "upgrade to 0.20.0" (which I'm on) and "Rescan channels" (which I
have).

The most recent occurrence mentioned on the mailing list was over Christmas
when someone (probably another sodding quiz channel) shifted the channels
around, but my disk started to fill up with these logs about 3 days ago
(10th Jan 2008). I rebooted a few times wondering if it was the old
Hauppauge disconnect firmware bug thing, I also tried re-scanning the
channels on two separate occasions and still I'm getting this message.

I don't care any more if Program #108 is found in the PAT(!) or not. I
couldn't care less if I'm not getting the Numberwang channel. I just want
to
a) stop thrashing the disk like crazy and
b) filling it up with debug info (which should be in a separate log level if
you ask me).

Can anyone lovely tell me where in mythconverg or the config I can do this
and save my poor ailing hardware?

Thanks
Ben

rescan for your channels and see if that helps.

0.20.0? hmmmm I thought the latest is 0.20.2 but I could be wrong.

Hi
It's not a database table the message is referring to, it's a data
table embedded in the DVB data. This used to give me grief too, and it
does have something to do with not having a fully correct channel
scan, but my workaround was to patch the source.

If you are building from source you can amend the log level of the
message from 'important' to something else - I used 'channel' so that
it stops printing it unless you request it by specifying that level on
the startup command line.

The offending code is in libs/libmythtv/dtvsignalmonitor.cpp at around
line 287 - you can replace the VB_IMPORTANT with VB_CHANNEL and
rebuild.

Apologies if you are running a binary package, obviously you can't
patch that :-(

I think I have seen messages or either this list or the -dev list
which say that it is possible to get rid of the message by having your
channel scan completely up-to-date, but then I also remember seeing
people saying they were still seeing it even after a full scan so
YMMV.

Cheers,
Neil

Did you delete all channels before the rescan?

Well bugger me, it worked.

I hadn't deleted them as I assumed they were wiped when I rescanned (sounds
like a bug if not?). So I gave that a try (anything to avoid recompiling)
and so far (fingers crossed) my disk remains intact and the logging has
stoppped. Thank you!

Thanks all for the suggestions from everyone else and the guidance (Neil
Milne) about it being an MPEG thing rather than an SQL table. I will keep
this all in mind in case the delete-first method also stops working one of
these days.

Cheers
Ben
