Mythweb now never updates DataDirect status (Solved)

My subscription with Schedules Direct is good thru early 2020, but MythWeb's status page never gets this updated status; for example, this morning this is its report: Last mythfilldatabase run started on Fri Feb 1 2019, 12:19 AM and is Successful. There's guide data until 2019-02-22 03:30:00 (21 day...

(SOLVED)Re: No audio after upgrading to v. 30

Phew! False alarm, thank the gods of MythTV. After setting up a work-around, successfully playing sound directly thru the (crappy) TV speakers, I re-plugged the cables to troubleshoot why no soundbar sound... then sound worked! Huh? After upgrading, someone was working around our TV setup, maybe dis...

No audio after upgrading to v. 30

I had a completely working system, separate v0.29 frontends and a backend. After upgrading to v.30 one frontend has no sound; another frontend on different hardware, the sound is OK. I go into the audio section of setup of the faulty frontend, but can find no device that has sound. The default devic...

Re: HDHomeRun Quatro OTA Works, Premium TV Does Not Work :-(

Like you I have a Quatro and subscribed to Premium TV for a while and was able to record Premium TV with my MythTV setup. It was an interesting experiment, but I found myself in the same place I also seem to wind up in with this kind of setup, "500 channels and nothing to watch." So I dropped my sub...

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

I attach a screenshot of the "Channel Info" screen of MythWeb. I got the channel numbers into the backend database via a mysql session, but it might also be possible to directly edit the information in this interface. (Maybe because of the way I connect I find that I can fill in information in field...

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

I got a listing of the Premium TV channels by going to http://<i.p. of tuner>, a screenshot is attached of the "Channel Lineup," showing the premium channels. There is no doubt a way to enter this info into the backend MythTV database using some gui tool, but I just did it by hand in a mysql command...

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

I posted about this problem in the Silicon Dust (SD) Premium TV forum, and SD did something to fix it from their end.

Subsequently I recorded a test set of 4 simultaneous shows and the results were far better, only one show was marked damaged by MythTV.

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

I have been further testing my setup. I find I can record 4 simultaneous shows (all streamed from Silicon Dust.) On viewing the recordings look OK (uniformly 720p resolution at best), but after the end of the recording they are always marked with a yellow dot in the frontend listings, as well as mar...

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

It's possible that one could do this in the mythtv-setup interface, but as mentioned above, I am seeing this in a forwarded X session, and some things seem missing. But I start with that and "add a capture card," declare it an external tuner and (the way I have it setup) declare the path to mythhdhr...

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

So the final status: I defined 4 "external" tuners, and can readily look at the MythWeb guide and setup recordings. I have tested recording 2 different channels, and that works. I still have to figure out locking between OTA and Premium TV watching and recording.

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

So, I reported the above problem to Schedules Direct and they apparently fixed it. I don't know whether it was their fix or further fiddling with the XMLTV schedules fetch, but I finally got the schedule updates sorted. However recordings continued to fail. I found that the "channum" of these new ch...

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

Thanks for the suggestion. BUT, mythtv-setup seems dodgy, "fetch channels" doesn't seem to work, maybe because i am having to look at it via a forwarded X-session. (The backend server is headless.) I finally got a little bit ahead by working between mythtv-setup and the command line. The attached sc...

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

I also have tried to get mythhdhrrecorder working, and failed. In the GitHub docs at: https://github.com/garybuhrmaster/mythhdhrrecorder I do not understand how to go about the directive to "Fetch Channels" under "Setup in MythTV." Whatever I am doing now always gives no channels. Silicon Dust has u...
