Re: Choices for Recording Profile and Transcoder

what tuner are you using? I'm using a HDHomeRun (model HDTC-2US). ... depending on the tuner you use you may not need or have any settings to change. digital tuners just copy the incoming data so there is no need to configure for a specific resolution. you will want to make sure auto transcode is d...

Re: mythtranscode error 128

Or, more precisely, what should I do to test whether a file is mpeg2 or h.264 (so that I build the mythtranscode command correctly)? Apparently, the ffprobe command does the trick. ffprobe -v error -select_streams v:0 -show_entries stream=codec_name -of default=noprint_wrappers=1:nokey=1 "<video_fi...

Re: mythtranscode error 128

I guess that my root problem is that I don't understand how the settings for Recording Profile and Transcoder effect a recording's quality and file format, e.g., mpeg2 vs. h.264. I posted this question in the General section: https://forum.mythtv.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1529 Any enlightenment would ...

Re: mythtranscode error 128

... you are using the --mpeg2 option. Yes, the command I'm using is in the form of: /usr/local/bin/mythtranscode --chanid <CHANID> --starttime <UTC_STARTTIME> --mpeg2 --honorcutlist --outfile /media/tmp/<CHANID>_<UTC_STARTTIME>.mp2 --logpath /var/log/mythtv --loglevel debug" the file you are trying...

I'm trying to flag and remove commercials in a user script. The basic flow is: - Flag commercials with mythcommflag - Create cutlist with mythutil - Create commercial-free mpeg2 file with mythtranscode The full logs from each of these steps are below. Mythcommflag seems to flag commercials fine, tho...

mythcommflag Return Codes

Is it really true that mythcommflag return codes below 126 should be ignored? That's what seems to be implied by the code posted on this wiki page: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Script_-_RemoveCommercials Scroll down about halfway and you'll see this: if [ $ERROR -gt 126 ]; then echo "Commercial flagg...

Well, I don't know why but commflag started working again, or at least not going off into la-la land.

But, of course, now I have other questions, which I've posted in a this new thread:

I didn't see your response to the question about commflag running automatically when the backend finishes a recording. Does it work when the backend runs it??? @ bill6502 I don't think that I'm running mythcommflag when the backend finishes a recording; how can I tell other than looking at the X11 ...
