Indexing of EPG list not finished

#1

Post by 1ST1 » Wed Jun 20, 2018 9:50 pm

Hello, I am using WMC with 1803 and DVBS2 card. Basically it works. But I can not search for titles or desctiption contents of the EPG for recording. I have set up several keywords to record TV shows by topic, but only one (the 2nd in the priority) in list regulary is found, scheduled and recorded, others not. If I go to EPG and start a search I get an error message (in German) which says that the search result is incomplete as the indexing of the TV programm lists is not finished. It's never finished. What can I do?

The last couple Win10 updates have disabled indexing of the media center database. You just need to re-enable it. Not at my computer so can't describe it, but that is the direction you need to go.

Search for "Indexing Options" and run it.
Click the 'Advanced' button and then the 'Rebuild' button.
After a few seconds, you should then see Windows Media Center in the main window. If not, you can add it by using the 'Modify' button. It will start indexing automatically.

To hurry up things, you may go to 'Task Scheduler', \Microsoft\Windows\Media Center, and run 'ReindexSearchRoot' and 'PvrScheduleTask'.

Hello, thanks, did that, but there is no ''PvrScheduleTask'.

Really? There's no PvrScheduleTask, but there is ReindexSearchRoot?

To do it manually, you can run "c:\windows\ehome\mcupdate.exe -PvrSchedule"
A manual ReindexSearchRoot looks like "c:\windows\ehome\ehPrivJob.exe /DoReindexSearchRoot"

I have added that scheduled task manually and now it works. Thanks for your help.
