Re: portable FE/BE Combo system

One additional thought. When you configure your HD Homerun Quatro, you need to set at least one of the tuners to do Active EIT scanning. This is part of the Capture Card setup in mythtv-setup.

portable FE/BE Combo system

I've had about 4 months of testing portable OTA DVR solutions and thought it might help others with what I found. I needed a OTA DVR for my RV for our long trip this year. And since the Raspberry 3B+ was the best I could get earlier this year I went with LibreELEC 9.0 software with the TVHeadend plu...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

Dare I ask: how well does commercial flagging work on a Pi 4? I don't use commercial flagging, I just use 30 second forward skip to run past commercials. Mike The same for me. I have found that with my OTA recordings, it misses more than it gets right. So I adjusted the forward skip to 60 seconds a...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

Mythtv combo FE/BE on Raspberry Pi 4B with 4GB, 1TB SSD, with rootfs is as good as my production mythtv-backend with a Shield TV frontend. Other than having 8TB of mirrored RAID storage, the Pi does everything. Since I never record more than 4 HD shows at once on the production system, the Pi can d...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

My database backups have been working daily since I made your recent change. To put the backups in the right place I remembered to run mythtv-setup->Storage locations and create a group locations for database backups. Now all my daily backups are going there and not in my Default group, which was se...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

After working with the mythtv FE/BE on my Pi 4 I've noticed one thing not working. The script that MikeB2013 wrote to install all the rest of the stuff you need to run Mythtv backend installed the mythconverg_backup.pl to be run daily. It is not running daily the best I can see. I can manually run:...

Re: mythtv light, RP4, and 4K resolution problem

My personal experience is that performance wise, the UI @ 4k is not a smooth experience with the Pi 4 - this may vary depending on the theme you use and whether you use the QT or GL renderer. I agree with your assessment. If I set the TV to work at 4K, mythtv-frontend works fine, but the UI is slug...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

Okay, I have Raspbian Buster up and running on my Raspberry Pi 4 B with 4GB ram. I installed mythtv-light per the instructions and used the scripts attached in this thread to move the rootfs to a USB3-SATA-SSD drive and to install the rest of mythtv needed for a backend. For initial testing I have R...

mythtv light, RP4, and 4K resolution problem

I have a 4GB RP4 up and running Raspbian Buster. I'm connected to a 4K TV so as a desktop it's unusable from my chair. I can set it to 1080p using Preferences->Screen Configuration. However, that will not stay at 1080P if rebooted. I tried sudo raspi-config to setup resolutions but I got this error:...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

Mike, Wow, thanks. This and the other script will get a workout on Wednesday when my Pi4, 1TB SSD and adapter arrive. I built a USB Flash boot system on a RP3B+ which is simple so I know the script that builds the mythtv backend after mythtv-light is installed works great. Obviously the performance ...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

Just for information. ... You can use any of the Raspbian Buster versions, but when running totally headless (no hdmi connection, or keyboard/mouse), so it is mythbackend only, I use Raspbian Buster Lite. You need to be careful when running mythtv-setup. On my Pi4 it hangs. Killing the process has ...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

mythtv-light does include the backend so it should not be necessary to build from source. Also the wiki guides should give all the info on setting up the database etc. although that info is in the "Build from source" article https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Build_from_Source#Post-install_tasks Attached ...
