did fresh install since upgrade didn't work

I wanted to document this so it may help others with similar problems. I was on mythbuntu 16.04 with v.28 of mythtv. I wanted to upgrade to v29, but no luck. Too many errors. What I finally did was take a old PC and build a fresh install of Ubuntu Server 16.04.3 and build up mythtv v29 from there. I...

Re: Script to export Mythtv recordings to a folder or NAS

FYI, I updated my script to the one you just posted today (11/20/16) and tested it against my MPEG2 files recorded from my ATSC OTA tuner HDHomeRun Connect. It converted it to .m4v as expected with expected quality, and copied the file to my NAS. I have the latest 0.28 patches so the file deletion p...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

Skinah, I have been using your original TV show script in Mythtv 0.27 successfully for about a year. Didn't work in 0.28 due to a mythtranscode bug that has now been fixed, so I stayed on 0.27. I've been testing 0.28 now with the fixes and I can confirm that the original TV Show script works in 0.28...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

I submitted a bug report on the mythtranscode command with the -o option in 0.28. the 0.28 version does indeed delete the original file and remove the cutlist. 0.27 does not and that's what I like your script. I'm staying on 0.27 until this is fixed in 0.28.

Re: screen blanking and video noise in 16.04

My problems with blanking screen and video noise is also seen in 14.04.5.

It's something with the new kernel and/or Xorg versions. 14.04.5 uses the same X and kernel as 16.04

Re: mythtranscode problem after moving to 0.28

Can someone let me know if this is not the place to report bugs? Based on comparing 0.27 and 0.28 behavior of the mythtranscode command with the -o option, this is a bug.

mythbuntu install guide

I struggle to remember all the detailed steps when I have to rebuild my Mythtv system. So I created a detailed guide that works for me and could help others.

I finally got a blog created with the instructions fairly well formatted:

mythtranscode problem after moving to 0.28

on version 0.27 I used mythtranscode to use the cutlist to do a lossless transcode of the original .mpg file and put the new .mpg file in another location on my computer and leave the original in place without modifying the database. However, I now have upgraded to 0.28 and I find that the same myth...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

I think it has to do with the fact that the recorded files have a .ts extension now in 0.28. After the script strips the commercials without converting it to .m4v it seems to remove it from the directory it was originally stored. during the first phase where the commercials are removed by a lossles...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

I've been using this script to remove commercials using my cutlist based on the commercial flags and my manual edits and move the programs to my NAS. All successfully. I've been testing everything with 0.28 mythtv and I've run into an issue with sendTVtonas.sh. I think it has to do with the fact tha...

Re: upgrading mythbuntu 14.04 to mythbuntu 16.04.1 - issues

As a test case, I shutdown the mythbuntu system and used a different full Ubuntu 16.04 system that was upgraded in place. I used the Software installer to install mythtv control center and mythtv front and backend. I had the usual mysql password issue of the mythtv-setup thinking the password was my...

Re: screen blanking and video noise in 16.04

I have other systems in the house that were using the full Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and I did an upgrade in place to 16.04 LTS and they do not have any GFX issues. I went back to the mythbuntu 14.04 PC with stable GFX and booted the install USB for the Full Desktop version of Ubuntu 16.04.1 and even the sta...
