Re: Program Guide All Channels Unknown (Unknown)

That helped. Thank you. I'm going to focus on setting MythTV up for an antenna. Once I get that done, successfully(!), I'll try cable. ...and you're right it is tough to set up. Here is my file for the setup: jjthomas@anthem:~ % cat .mythtv/SD.xmltv cache=/home/jjthomas/.xmltv/tv_grab_zz_sdjson.cach...

Well, I am connecting to the database :) But my program guide is basically empty. I am able to watch live TV. I did try various tricks, but nothing will get me a populated program guide. Help? I'm attaching my output: MythTVOutput080520.txt.zip and a jpg picture of the system status. Thank you, alwa...

Re: Unable to connect to database error, FreeBSD 12.1

Aw crap! I had my primary address set to 127.0.0.1. I changed the address to 172.24.153.2. It now works. Thank you.

Re: Unable to get cable channels.

I decided to give this a try on FreeBSDv12.1. It bombed with a segmentation fault. I'm sorting that out now.

Thank you for chiming in.

Re: Unable to get cable channels.

As a "head's up!," Fedora 32 is using a version of MariaDB that can crash from Myth queries. Crap! I pulled my MariaDB logs. Full of "Aborted connection" errors. This has not been a good project. I even tried to run MediaPortal on windows. I've been trying to get this going since December. I've run...

Re: Unable to get cable channels.

Well hell, following your instructions it worked. Not sure what I did. I hate that! I'll give it a few days and see what happens.

Re: List of problems with desktop Linux

Linux has come a long way. It still lacks in some areas. As a suggestion, pick a distro you like and become a developer or tester. The only way Linus will get better is if people contribute to its development. For the most part, the people that work on Linux are doing so unpaid and on their own time...

Program Guide Not Populating

Good afternoon, I have been trying to get MythTV going for a couple of months. I was running on CentOS, but after converting from an over the air antenna to cable, I seem to be running into multiple problems. The latest has been getting my program guide to populate. I tried this on CentOS 7, LinHES,...

Re: (2018) Access denied for user 'mythtv'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Hello, I ran into this again. It turns out MythTV does not follow symbolic links. I did not know if I should start a new thread, or if you just want to mark this one solved. I hope this will help the next person. :) I had [root@anthem mythtv]# pwd /etc/mythtv ls -Fla lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 33 Feb 1...

Well, progress. The step I was missing was the Selecting Scan Type. Once I got that I was able to scan and so far, so good.

I have the listings. I'm now working my way through recordings...

Re: Unable to get cable channels.

I emailed you the zipped log file.

I know in doing this it did scan qam channels, but I have not been able to get it to do it again.

I dropped the database and started all over again. No change. It was worth trying.
