Re: Frontend on a Pi4: 0.30 v 0.31

Regarding NVidia Shield: The Amazon Fire stick 4K works as well or better for a fraction of the price.

For mythfrontend you need a fire stick 4K even if you are not playing 4K content.

Another frontend option is leanfront, which works on fire stick non-4k as well as fire stick 4k and NVidia Shield.

Re: Duplicate channels in sqlite db, best way to fix?

It sounds like you have some channels selected in sqlite that are not in your MythTV database. You can deselect them with sqlite. Locate the sqlite database, it will be called SchedulesDirect.DB or similar, in your .xmltv directory or possibly somewhere in the .mythtv directory. sqlite3 SchedulesDir...

Re: Raspberry PI version of Mythtv v31 still at v31.0-59?

Bintray is being discontinued. There is a new download method for raspberry pi builds. See the documentation page at https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/MythTV_Light I have now deleted it from bintray to avoid confusion. The new download site has had mythtv-light_31.0-138-g525e3b0bb4-0_armhf_buster.deb sinc...

Re: file not fast-forwarding in Leanfront

1. You can see what version of leanfront you have installed by going to android settings, going to apps, finding the app and selecting it. The version number is displayed. 2. I have today released a new apk (leanfront-release-v0-277-g9d091b2.apk) that has a section "Tweaks" in Settings. Try increasi...

Re: file not fast-forwarding in Leanfront

Are you using a recent version?
This was fixed on September 26, 2020 and an update was made November 11th 2020 to further increase the size of the seek buffer. If you are using an older version please upgrade.

Re: file not fast-forwarding in Leanfront

This should not happen. There is a situation where the total length does not show and you cannot skip. It is related to a size parameter that can be set in the program. I have set a value that I thought would be sufficient for all cases. It is likely that this could be fixed with a small change. Whe...

Re: MythTV confused by daylight saving time

There may be a bug here. I normally have my backend shut down and starting up with a timer event when a recording is scheduled, so it would be restarted anyway after the time change. I know the timer events are OK with the time change, but the backend may not. Once the scheduler has run, the future ...

Re: MythTV keeps recording even though schedules are deleted?

Do you delete using mythfrontend? When you say it keeps recording are you referring to a recording in progress at the time or future scheduled recordings? When you delete or change a recording rule it runs a "reschedule". If you are deleting by some unusual method perhaps that is not happening. Try ...

Re: waking from suspend, then shutting down

Try setting idle shutdown timeout to at least 300 (5 minutes) to allow time to logon before it shuts down.
