Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

Well I solved my FireTV Cube problem this morning by returning it to Amazon for a refund.

Re: Mythweb on RPI4 mythtv backend failing

I just started fresh again and installed Raspberry PI OS Lite and installed mythtv-light and mythplugins-light using pi-utils/pi-setup_mythtv_31.sh. Then using pi-mythbackend-helper.sh, I installed the rest. After configuring my tuners, video sources, and input connections everything worked except f...

Mythweb on RPI4 mythtv backend failing

I just did a fresh install of mythtv with a backend on a RPI 4 4GB using Mike B's pi-utils. https://github.com/MikeB2013/pi-utils This usually works fine. However today, after I got the backend working, I tried to use mythweb and got an error I have not received before: Bad Request Your browser sent...

Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

I use HandBrakeCLI for transcoding. It also will by default eliminate letter box borders. However that takes time and is not useful for Live TV or watching programs still recording. Interesting about how handbrake eliminated the letterbox borders. For me, while I wait for Amazon to fix the Cube's r...

Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

I stumbled into a workaround. Since you pointed out the audio problem on leanfront if mythtranscode was used. I took one of my recordings that needs to be viewed with the Set Picture Size to 133% and just ran it through the sendTVtoNAS script that I installed as a Mythtv User Job https://forum.mytht...

Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

The audio on the sample you sent me is awful. Did you put this through mythtranscode or mythcommflag? Those do seem to mess up the audio for leanfront. Of you use those then I recommend putting the file through mkvmerge after the mythtranscode or mythcommflag if you want to use it with leanfront. I...

Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

I don't have a fire tv cube so I can't test this. If the problem also affects VLC then, as you say, it is likely a problem with the fire tv cube itself. Leanfront uses standard android calls to resize. It is surprising that a basic android method does not work on the fire tv call. I posted this iss...

Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

FYI, since Amazon support will not help with side loaded app in their forum. I've produced the same problem using VLC Player from their app store. With VLC Player you use Menu -> resize and cycle through the choices and on the FireTV 4K it works just like Set Picture Size on Leanfront. But on the Cu...

Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

I copied a 30 second clip of a TV show that shows the problem. If you don't have a TV channel broadcasting in this format. You can download the file and put it in your Video storage group directory, scan for changes, and then use Leanfront on a FireTV and FireTV Cube to show the differences https://...

What is the title you see when doing the zoom on the fire tv cube? Does it say "Set Picture Size" or "Stretch Picture"?
Set Picture Size

Second icon on bottom line. Right side of CC icon.

Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

I have redesigned some of the playback ui. It now uses a dialog with a seekbar to fine tune size. It uses up/down arrows for the previous predefined values. Please try the new version (leanfront-v0-216-g48b40f7.apk) and see whether the problem affects both the predefined values and the seekbar. Als...

Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

Additional information: using adb connect <ip address> adb logcat lfe:D *:S from my linux machine I could not see any log event using the zoom mode, so no help here. However, I tested all 3 of my view apps on the Cube and Shield TV. On the Shield TV: mythfrontend using Adjust Fill -> Full zooms corr...

leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

I use Leanfront v0-207 32bit on FireTV 4K stick and the 64bit version on Nvidia Shield TV. However, when I installed the 32 bit version on my new FireTV Cube I notice a small issue with Leanfront Zoom (Picture size) feature. On some of my channels using the sub muxes like 5.3, I get old programs tha...

Re: TV Show Metadata

As a backup for your metadata so you can always restore it you could create an *.mxml file with the same name as the video file but with the extension replaced by .mxml. That's what I do so when you rescan in Myth it will always prefer the metadata from that file before trying to look it up. That w...
