Guide Dropping Every Couple of Days

Post by mitchellmarkw » Sat Sep 22, 2018 3:29 pm

My setup: TV Mosaic (1.0.0-16509; upgraded from DVB-Link) running on a Synology NAS (DS114; DSM 6.2-23739 Update 2), HDHomeRun CONNECT Quatro network tuner, Android TV box for viewing, and ZAP2XML running on a PC to grab EPG info. XMLTV file is dropped on the NAS by ZAP2XML, where TV Mosaic can access it.

It seems every couple of days, I have to go into TV Mosaic settings and manually refresh to get it to see guide info. The symptoms are that I will bring up the guide and data will be sporadic, with some channels listing stuff and others showing "no information available". If I move to a show, even one with the title listed, it shows "no information available" and both "Play" and "Record" are deactivated. The temporary fix: if I go into TV Mosaic settings/EPG/Sources and refresh XMLTV sources, the guide returns to working order and everything works as it should.

Any suggestions?

xmltv info is updated every 12 hours by default. Maybe you need to decrease this time to, say, 6 hours to match the amount of days/hours present in the xmltv file?

Thank you for the response. I already had it set to 6 hours. One thing I forgot to mention in my initial post is that if I go into TVM settings when this has happened and look at Channel Mappings, most of the channels are missing from the list there, too. Once I do the refresh, they all show back up.
