Re: No more mysql backups?

The "disable backups" in setup is only to disable backups during upgrades, so that is not relevant to your problem. There is no automatic backup mechanism in MythTV. The Ubuntu MythTV package installs a cron job to do a weekly backup. The package creates a file /etc/cron.weekly/mythtv-database to do...

Re: Pi Zero W

I think it only has 512MB memory. The regular raspberry pi with 1G memory is already pushing the memory limit and I think 512MB will not be enough. Also the wifi may not be fast enough for playback of HD programs. 802.11 ac is fine but less than that may not be fast enough.

Re: Overnight Hangs - How do you log to the backend server?

I recommend checking the power supply. The raspberry pi takes a lot of power and the normal USB charger may not be sufficient. When the voltage drops a rainbow pattern also displays on the screen, if you see that it also indicates you may need a better power supply. If the raspberry pi is locking up...

Re: MythTV-light not changing display mode for recordings/video

It should be enabled by default, but you can check it by pressing right arrow on the entry in the playback profile to get the details and check the deinterlacer. Note that on older versions of raspbian the deinterlace will not work (raspbian versions before 2016-05-27).

Re: White flicker on every key press in menu navigation with .30

I suppose it is a known issue. I have seen it but not done anything about it. It did not seem important. If you feel it is important you can create a ticket.

Re: .29 Mythlight Frontend does not work with .30 Backend

MythTV expects the frontend and backend to be the same major version. This is not a raspberry pi specific issue, that is also the case with any linux setup. That should probably be spelled out in the wiki, but I am not sure if it is.

Re: SOLVED (ish): Pi3/MythLight/Stretch 1080i MPEG-2 OTA ATSC Playback Stutters

One warning - swapping an SD card from a pi3 to a pi2 may not work. I have had problems with that. The Video -> playback -> advanced playback settings -> Audio read ahead option is new. I am not sure in what version it was introduced, but it replaced the "extra audio buffer" option. Extra audio buff...

Re: Pi3/MythLight/Stretch 1080i MPEG-2 OTA ATSC Playback Stutters

The problem you reported, that it sometimes works after a lot of messing around, is the symptom expected if the governor is not set to performance. This had me confused for some time before I discovered the governor setting.

Re: Pi3/MythLight/Stretch 1080i MPEG-2 OTA ATSC Playback Stutters

Regarding pi2 vs pi3: I am watching daily on a pi2 but I have a pi3 as well that I use for development, and it runs fine on there as well. Regarding the governor, on my system setting cpu0 sets them all, see example below. pi@eagle2:~ $ cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor ondem...

I assume you have checked everything mentioned in https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi#System_Performance I am watching 1080i content every day on a raspberry pi 2 without a problem. What is the exact thing you see? Does the sound get interrupted or id the movement visibly jerky or both? Could t...

Re: "Failed to initialize A/V Sync" with VDPAU

VDPAU with AMD hardware often has problems.

If your setup plays H264 well with one setting and mpeg2 well with a different setting, you can set up your playback profile to automatically select a different setting for each, also to select different settings for different resolutions.

Re: Can I replace the Recording Player?

There are various fixes for tearing of the picture. What is your playback profile and video card type?
