Upgrade doesn't load complete XMLTV

Post by chis » Thu Jun 11, 2015 10:34 am

I was running 2.2 happily for many months and recently upgraded to 2.3. This might be the source of my problem.
I've just noticed that after the 2.3 upgrade one channel (TV3 Plus 1) wasn't completely loading from the XMLTV file. Some programmes from this channel load into the EPG properly, but most don't. Other channels seem to load fully.

Here's a section of the XMLTV file showing the last programme that is on the EPG, 4 that are loaded, then the first (of many) that aren't loaded. I doubt it's a problem with the XMLTV file because the TV3 Plus 1 is an exact repeat of TV3 but one hour later, and all of TV3 loads correctly.

Update: After a full uninstall (and database delete), I installed a fresh copy of 2.3 then set everything up manually again.

Now the EPG is complete. So I suspect there was something caused by the upgrade, and hope this can be found as setting everything up manually each upgrade isn't ideal
