Thanks.

This sounds like mythfilldatabase is using old, cached data. In theory,
this will only happen if you run mythfilldatabase a lot of times in a
short time period (as you might do when trying to diagnose a failure).
Can you do:

sudo rm -rf /tmp/myth*

and then re-run mythfilldatabase --dd-grab-all , again, and let us know
if it fixes all the occurrences to show what Schedules Direct shows.

Thanks,
Mike

Re: Ticket #12916: Mythfilldatabase not updating some programs correctly [ In reply to ]
This appears to have cleared up the problem. I generally only let mythfilldatabase run when it auto-schedules itself, but perhaps when I did the last update something got left around, since mythfilldatabase would have probably run twice that day.

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for reporting back. I'm going to close the ticket as
"Unverified" and assume it was just a timing issue that would have
cleared up. We used to have an issue where we reused mythfilldatabase
cache directories that were old when they got put there, for example, by
root (and couldn't be deleted by the normal mythtv user), but TTBOMK,
these issues have been fixed in all code paths.

If you do see the issue again, please reopen the ticket and, perhaps,
show an ls -ld /tmp/mythtv* so we can see what cache directories exist.
At least if it does recur, you'll be able to work around it so you don't
miss any important shows--like Big Bang Theory (not sure about Kevin Can
Wait--haven't watched any of that, yet :).
