Re: mythtv-setup craches after a scan while updating

You can edit transports manually using mythtv-setup->channel editor. I don't know how much success you will have with adding them manually. You can also scan existing transports instead of doing a full scan. We support raspberry pi 2 and 3 but do not officially support orange pi, banana pi, etc. I b...

Re: HDHomerun second tuner 0.29 problem

That version you are showing does have the HDHomeRun fixes. Why does your tuner show ip address rather than the id. If you press enter on the selection instead of selecting manually enter you should see a list containing items like 131AA209-0 131AA209-1 131AA209-2 Then you select the first one for t...

Re: HDHomerun second tuner 0.29 problem

run mythutil --version on your backend that has the tuner connected. That version you mention should be good, but apt-cache just shows what is available, not what is installed.

The problem with the second tuner displaying -0 and some other setup problems have been fixed in fixes/29 on 11/1/2017 with commit bbc5617. If you have a more recent build than that and are still getting the problem please let me know the details.

Re: mythtv-setup craches after a scan while updating

mythtv-setup should only be run on backend machines, so I don't understand what you mean by scanning your frontend. Port checker is trying to resolve an IPV6 link local address. You may be able to avoid the problem by using a unique-local or global address or an IPV4 address for the database. If it ...

Re: Title with Question Mark

You can search www.thetvdb.com to see what is there. I found it has "Are You Being Served" both with and without a question mark but it seems to be in the list twice so that may be causing the problem. Sometimes it helps to update the inet ref on MythTV, and then run the lookup.

Re: Storage Groups not really working

I don't know about mythling, but you can set up a directory structure with Videos and Movies and make it your videos storage group. You will need to scan the directory for it to populate, and scan it again if you add delete or rename anything. You can scan either from in the frontend videos by selec...

Re: On the fly .ts to .mpg?

Renaming a file while it is being recorded is not a good plan but you could create a link to the file with mpg extension.

Re: Transcoding of HEVC recordings to H.264

I use HandBrake for that, specifically HandBrakeCLI which is a command line interface. You can install it using apt under Ubuntu, there is also a ppt for later versions than the default Ubuntu repo. (sudo apt install handbrake-cli). You could create an appropriate command line to run as a user job a...

Re: Can't watch on two different devices simultaneously

How many tuners have you defined in MythTV? If you only have 1 tuner you can only watch Live TV from 1 device at a time. If you have 2 tuners you can watch from 2 devices at a time and so on. If you only have 1 tuner and are trying to watch the same channel from both at the same time there are some ...

Re: recording not starting from autostartup

You have it set to shut down if idle for more than 60 seconds. This is probably too short. If you wake up 5 minutes before a recording it will shut down again after 1 minute idle, before the recording starts. Better make the idle time setting larger than the pre recording startup time or this will l...
