Re: MythTV 0.29 build error on Devuan 2.0.0 ascii

I sent an email to the author of mythexternrecorder and copied you. See what he says. Also there seems to be another error in your log. I don't know if this is relevant but it looks like this may also cause a failure. There may be some dependency missing. I: dh_python2 pydist:220: Cannot find packag...

Re: MythTV 0.29 build error on Devuan 2.0.0 ascii

mythexternrecorder is a new program and exists only in master, so it looks like you are building master, (which is v30) not v29. Since mythexternrecorder was only added a couple of weeks ago, my guess is that the debian packaging has not been changed to cater for it. Some options are Use the actual ...

Re: DVD cuts out early

I think that DVD creation may be unreliable and time consuming to the point there it is not worth while. Another way to do this is transcode to x264 and play back on a computer or tablet. You can get a tablet that takes an SD card and you can put a large number of transcoded recordings on it. I use ...

Re: mythfrontend core dumps every time

I believe OpenGL may be the issue. Try running "mythfrontend -O ThemePainter=qt" If this works there may be an opengl problem. Also I see it is using opengl1. You can also try "mythfrontend -O ThemePainter=opengl2". Once you have it running you can go into Setup and change the theme painter so that ...

Re: Stutter playback on new Pi 3 B+

I have done some more testing on this, and as long as you run without "-v playback" and use OpenMAX Normal, it should work on the latest version of raaspbian, or the 2017 version. I no longer recommend installing the 2017 version.

Re: Audio drops out for 1-2 seconds randomly

Check your audio settings. Is digital audio selected? Try different settings. This type of problem is not normal. The built in HDMI should work fine.

Re: Stutter playback on new Pi 3 B+

Please try selecting the playback profile "OpenMax Normal". That should solve the problem for now. I am looking into a better solution.

Check the file $HOME/.mythtv/config.xml to see if the correct user id and password are there.

Re: Can not watch Live TV

Try increasing the tuning timeout values in the tuner setup. I believe the default is normally 3000, try doubling that.

Re: New install, but no MythWeb

Did you try "sudo apt install mythweb" ?
If you did, it is also possible that the package may install a different web server, for example nginx.

Re: How to configure two backends?

I'm still a little unclear on one other facet though. If I have the backend on the Intel machine, but my media files are on the AMD machine, how do I tell the backend where to look, to in-turn tell the front-end on AMD where to look? You can set up a video storage group for videos to be played from...

Re: How to configure two backends?

It looks like what you really need is the backend on one machine and the frontend on the other. All your recordings will be done on the backend on the Intel with its two drives, and the frontend can run on the AMD with its 4 drives. You do not need any NFS shares for this. The second machine (the AM...

Re: Stutter playback on new Pi 3 B+

I downloaded the latest raspbian image, and there seem to be problems with stuttering and general performance. For now, I recommend using 2017-08-16 version.

To find raspbian version run "cat /etc/rpi-issue". I am using raspbian "2017-08-16". You can download older versions of raspbia...
