Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

Finally some success. I found a setting in the MythTV client in the Setup Wizard, Pressing Next twice to get to "Video Configuration" There I found the entry for Video Playback Profile. I had 7 options available that I had to test. The two standard definition and high definition tests worked for all...

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

No channels in .mythtv/'Schedules Direct Line up 1.xmltv'. Tried increasing net.core.rmem_max = 81921024 with no change based on some articles that recommended larger settings for streaming video. From reading the MythTV manual: CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 220 Processor Has a PassMark rating of: 995. ...

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

Version is now: 2:31.0+fixes.202005011857.a2b8c26~ubuntu20.04.1 I added a symlink from the /home/mythtv/.mythtv directory so it uses the common one from the login screen. Otherwise the background runs of mythfilldatabase can not see the xmltv configuration. On Linux, I would expect that configuratio...

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

As of Monday evening, Schedules direct claimed to be back on line. I still had no show listings in the TV Guide, and I could not find a reason for it as the tv_grab_zz_sdjson confirmed that I was getting listings from Schedule direct. On Tuesday evening, I noticed that there was an update to Myth TV...

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

Right now, schedulesdirect is down for getting XML listings. So I can not troubleshoot the TV Guide issues. I discovered that when I tried to edit the settings in the video transports. Apparently even though it is the same database the channels, I need one entry for scanning OTA channels and one for...

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

Now starting to have success. I set up the tuners for the antenna to use EIT EPG data and the tuners for cable to use Schedules Direct data. i did this partially to see if it was viable to use the EIT data. I discovered that the EIT data for Sunday afternoon CBS was all TBD, while Schedules Direct h...

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

In my years of operating the Microsoft Media Center one of the things that I discovered is that it can be hard to get screen time on the TV set to do maintenance because someone wants to be watching something. So the TV 10 foot GUI has only been used for scheduling recordings and and selecting recor...

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

The arrow key. I missed that from reading the pages on the Wiki page. Thank you. It looks like I can now do the configuration. A GUI should not be switching people from mouse to keyboard for actions that should be done by a mouse. And if keyboard keys are needed for any action, there should be eithe...

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

Had to do one more fix to my ansible role on the directories.
This only fixed the storage not writable message.
