Re: updated instructions for mythtv-light on RPI4

I had trouble with the script run_mythfrontend.sh from pi-utils and not the skills to fix it so I found a solution that works fine on my RPI4 combo FE/BE. #!/bin/bash # script to run mythfrontend from version 31 on Raspberry Pi under Raspian Buster using EGLFS # can be added to .bashrc to allow aut...

Re: X11 library has been updated - mythtv-light install now fails

I'm not seeing any issues. I just started with a clean SSD with Raspberry PI OS (Desktop) and followed my instructions at https://mythtv-rp4.blogspot.com/2020/11/how-i-installed-mythtv-v31-on-my-rpi-4.html I got both the frontend and backend working using EPG from OTA before replying to this post.

Re: Screen Setup Wizards cause FE to freeze

what is comes down to is installing mythtv-light the new way per the wiki from orangedoc and then I only used pi-mythbackend-helper.sh from pi-utils. I ran 'run_mythsetup.sh as is, but I used my own run_mythfrontend.sh #!/bin/bash # script to run mythfrontend from version 31 on Raspberry Pi under Ra...

Re: Screen Setup Wizards cause FE to freeze

git clone https://github.com/MikeB2013/pi-utils.git This link is no longer working, anyone know a working version for the desk-topless install of mythv-light/. Some of the scripts do work but not all. I recently built a v31 mythtv-light system combo FE/BE and had to make some changes to the instruc...

Re: Nvidia Shield v Firestick 4K for full frontend

I just gave it another go and the other issue I have is that it's not especially responsive - in particular when skipping forward or back in a recording. I'm used to being able to jump pretty much instantly. But perhaps it could be because I'm using a non-4K firestick? This is true, skipping takes ...

Re: Nvidia Shield v Firestick 4K for full frontend

While this is not your exact picture source, I have both the FireTV 4K stick and the Nividia Shield TV (2017) and on USA OTA 1080i (1920x1080@30) and 720p (1280x720@60) I find that Mythtv-Frontend on android is much better on the Shield than the FireTV 4k stick. but since my wife uses the FireTV 4k ...

updated instructions for mythtv-light on RPI4

I finally got around to testing my instructions since mythtv-light moved to Orangedox. This was a quick edit after I got my RPI4 mythtv combo setup for this years RVing season. (My RV is where I use the RPI4 with mythtv) https://mythtv-rp4.blogspot.com/2020/11/how-i-installed-mythtv-v31-on-my-rpi-4....

Re: Frontend on a Pi4: 0.30 v 0.31

As Peter says, Leanfront on a FireTV stick works great. I use my garage as an electronic project workshop and on pretty weather days, I back the car out and I have the complete 2 car garage for use as a sports bar for me and my neighbors. Yesterday afternoon I had the big Sony with a FireTV 4K stick...

Re: Frontend on a Pi4: 0.30 v 0.31

OK, latest status is that I installed LIBREelec on a Pi4 and added Kodi's MythTV plugin. I was able to configure it, and it said it successfully connected to my 0.31 backend. But the "Run" button is disabled. I can't see any way to actually run the add-on. Any ideas? I use RPI4 with LibreELEC with ...

Re: Frontend on a Pi4: 0.30 v 0.31

I think the quality of the picture for different frontends is very subjective and dependent on type and format. That being said, the v31 on RPI4 has improved since I originally said v30 was better than v31. If I was forced to use an RPI4 4GB as a combo BE/FE I'd have no issues with the Backend, but ...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

How's that encoded? DVB-T2 here is rarely more than 2GB/hour for h264 encoded 1080i content these days. MPEG2 encoded SD content tends to be well under 1GB/hour. On the plus side, so long as it only pulls the data it needs for the channels being recorded I'm never going to have a problem with capac...
