Re: Prevent Auto shutdown Whilst streaming

I recently added an API call to mythbackend master, that will delay shutdown 5 minutes. It is used by the "leanfront" android frontend, which calls it every 4 minutes to prevent shutdown. If you are writing a frontend application you can use that, or you can call it from a script every 4 minutes. Th...

Re: Mytharchive local callsign not accepted

Generally with latest versions we recommend importing videos into the Videos part of MythTV rather than as recordings. You can just add them to the videos storage group and rescan.

Re: Rescan causes all listing data to disappear

Perhaps your channels have lost the xmltvids after the rescan. You may have to add the xmltvid to each channel again..

Re: mythtv light, RP4, and 4K resolution problem

MythTV should run fine at 4K resolution. Have you tried it? Does it cause problems? V30 setup has been updated to allow selection of screen size up to 4K. V29 will work on 4K TV if the setup is set to fuil-screen.

See the table here https://developer.nvidia.com/video-enco ... ix#Decoder
It shows that certain 10-bit formats are supported with that device if using NVDEC.

Re: Garbage playing UHD movie on 4K TV with vdpau only

Normally VAAPI will not work if you have an NVIDIA card. I think what is happening in your case is that it is failing VAAPI and using standard decoding instead. If you select standard decoding with OpenGL you will likely see the same as when you select VAAPI. You can also verify this by specifying -...

Re: mythvideo metadata not finding correct TV shows

It is not clear why you have two backends.YOu can easily run two frontends off one backend and that works well. If you are copying shows from one backend to another, the metadata will not be copied unless you explicitly do something to copy it. Perhaps if you explain in more detail what you are doin...

Re: Troubleshoot/redo install problems?

The package install should have created the database for you. Clearly something did not work correctly. It looks like there are some things missing from mc.sql. I recommend you drop the mythconverg database and then follow the database setup instructions in the wiki at https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Bu...

Re: devel/2019-render branch on Pi

I suggest you post this to the developers list or else email Mark Kendall directly, as he is the person working on the render branch and he likely will not look at this forum. I suspect that some different build options may be necessary to build the render branch for raspberry pi.

Re: Raspbian OS updated to Buster

I believe Mark Kendall has done some work in the render branch, to convert to the new OpenGL that is now available in Raspberry Pi. I don't know what the state of that is. Also I have not investigated why opengl es is disabled in the buster configuration. It may just be some changed library name tha...

Re: Mythbackend shutdown issues with systemd.

The ExecStop setting is incorrect in your systemd setup. That run of mythshutdown only sets a scheduled wakeup time but does not shut down the backend. I recommend to remove the ExecStop from the service file. systemd by default uses a kill command that is trapped by mythtbackend and that will do an...

Re: Viewing recordings seems to loose frames after upgrade to 30

I suggest go to setup->video->playback->advanced. Try increasing the setting for audio read ahead. You can safely go to 1000 or more if necessary. You can also try disabling or enabling AVSync2. Please let us know if this helps and what settings work best. Also, does this happen throughout playback ...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

mythtv-light does include the backend so it should not be necessary to build from source. Also the wiki guides should give all the info on setting up the database etc. although that info is in the "Build from source" article https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Build_from_ ... tall_tasks
