Re: New Recorder Support

First off I want to say thanks to the OP for the great wiki article and the idea of using these things in general. Component outputs on STBs are becoming increasingly rare and these encoders provide an option for those of us in Canada who really have no option but using the STB's provided to us by t...

Re: HD-PVR2 support (please vote)

I've honestly given up on the HD-PVR(2) route and went this way: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/IPTV_Encoders_as_a_Capture_Device I don't have the encoder I purchased 100% working yet, the channel changing is still an issue, but I can watch the MPEGTS stream from the encoder in mythtv. I was going to w...

Re: MythTV Wiki Account

Same here actually. I wanted to add a little to an existing wiki entry, but registrations are disabled. When going to the create account page it indicates that only administrators have access.

Re: HDHR4-2US Can't use both tuners at the same time

Dekarl, So interestingly enough right after I posted the previous message I figured i'd make one more effort and blow away all the recorders in mythtv-setup and re-create them. I didn't delete the video sources, just the recorders. After re configuring everything (in a different order - I did the HD...

Re: HDHR4-2US Can't use both tuners at the same time

Dekarl, Thanks for the reply - unfortunately even after reading that document and playing with the settings in mythtv-setup I still have not been able to get the HDHR to work as expected. Your checklist has one incorrect item on it - the last one with respect to the HDHR: -I can't use both tuners fo...

[SOLVED] HDHR4-2US Can't use both tuners at the same time

I recently purchased a HDHR4-2US to receive OTA broadcasts. I had no problems with the initial setup in mythtv and getting it to record & watch live TV. However, even though this device has two tuners and I have been able to use both in mythtv, I cannot seem to use both at the same time. Is this a l...

Re: [SOLVED] Mythfrontend Black Screen When OpenGL Painter U

Thanks for the reply. This issue seems to be with QT 5.5.1 (maybe other versions of 5.5?). After a recent update to QT 5.6.0 the issue was gone: Please attach all output as a file in bug reports. MythTV Version : v0.28-5-geeac182-dirty MythTV Branch : fixes/0.28 Network Protocol : 88 Library API : 0...

[SOLVED] Mythfrontend Black Screen When OpenGL Painter Used

I have a Intel Broadwell-based NUC running F23 which I used as a FE/BE combo. After a recent Qt/Intel Driver update (I'm not entirely sure which the culprit was) I get a black screen whenever I turn on my TV and mythfrontend is running. Basically, if I turn off the TV while the frontend is running a...

Re: HD-PVR2 support (please vote)

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but did anything come of this? I just put the latest build of 0.28-pre on and my HDPVR is now less reliable then ever. LiveTV playback runs for some random amount of time before freezing up. The backend spews encoder i/o errors into the log and the frontend spews de...

Re: Upgraded 0.27 -> 0.28-pre. LiveTV Playback drops frames

Got this figured out. I was reading though the source code and I found where the avsync predictor gets enabled in mythplayer.cpp: avsync_predictor_enabled = ((frame_interval-(frame_interval/200)) < refreshrate); I noticed this was a function of the refresh rate. It appears the default for KDE when F...

[Solved] Upgraded 0.27 -> 0.28. LiveTV Playback drops frames

I just recently upgraded my MythTV system from Fedora 21 to Fedora 23 (Clean install) as well us upgrading MythTV from 0.27 to 0.28-pre. I did the MythTV upgrade at the same time as I know 0.28 is expected to be released very soon and I heard the master branch is quite stable at the moment. The only...

Re: Can't record with HD-PVR

Best guess the problem is not with the HD-PVR, but with whatever mechanism you're using for changing channels on the tuner it is connected to.
