Re: Script to export Mythtv recordings to a folder or NAS

Only issue I've discovered is that the file permissions on the transcoded video is still only writable to the mythtv user. I'm still getting used to linux/mythtv but I think that the script is run as root. Do you know of anyway to make the permissions of final output 0777 (or at the very least 0664...

Re: Script to export Mythtv recordings to a folder or NAS

You can also remove all the complex switches & options if you find a HandBrake preset that gives you the desired result. I use the "Android Tablet" preset with good results.

Re: Mythtv 0.28 failing to record

I would suggest adding the MythBuntu PPA to get the newest patches to MythTV.

Re: Script to export Mythtv recordings to a folder or NAS

skinah, It seems your script has stopped working on recordings from my HDHRprime using Comcast. This seems to have started after the new MythTV updates this week. OTA recordings still work fine. Any insight? ScriptsLastRun.log: The line below records the file details of the last run. ChanID_StartTim...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

I found a few bugs which are now fixed in the very first post of this thread. Bugs were only in MP4 processing and were causing the cuts to occur in the wrong places and missing ends. To upgrade make sure you are using MKVMERGE version 9.5 or newer and BC is installed, instructions are in the start...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

the backend setup has a setting that allows you to limit the job queue between set times, that may work for you but the commercial detection may be stopped, not sure, give it a go first as a second option allows the flagging to occur when the recording starts. I let mine run all the time as I want ...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

I would like to delay the running of my transcode job until the wee hours of the morning instead of immediately following the recording end time. From my searching I came across this email thread from the MythTV mail list from 2007: * On Sat Mar 03, 2007 at 01:51:26AM -0500, f-myth-users at media.mi...

Re: F/E connection issues

1) config.xml was updated. 2) nothing has changed on the network, worked fine before the b/e upgrade. 3) f/e is the latest from the Arch/AUR repo's 4) /var/log/mythtv is empty so no logs to diagnose. I did a fresh Manjaro install on a spare laptop and the same issue is present. I ended up installing...

F/E connection issues

I recently did a fresh Xubuntu 16.04 install on my master b/e and did a full db restore. All is working fine on the new b/e and my main Mint-18 f/e that is connected to my main TV. The issue I am having is connecting the f/e on my Manjaro/Arch PC which worked fine before the b/e upgrade. I deleted t...

Re: Script for sending Mythtv recordings to a NAS

I just uploaded a newer version which no longer needs you to supply the recording location so it should work for your situation now. You will need to enter the mythtvbackend setup and adjust the user job line to supply this location. Info on how to setup the script is as always contained in the scr...
