Re: Tuner scans OK but shows error in 'System Status'

Thanks bill - I won't be asking for a refund * I made the change and re-booted for good measure - it seemed to work for a while, but then hit problems with backend crashing - put it all back and it still wasn't working, but again noticed the backend wasn't running. now running the backend in a termi...

Re: Tuner scans OK but shows error in 'System Status'

I've just checked in phpMyAdmin in the 'capture card' table |3|0|/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0|... |4|3|/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0|... First number is card id, second parent id - I'm thinking it should probably be 0s and 1s ? Can anyone who has a single dvb tuner with two streams tell me what theirs ...

Tuner scans OK but shows error in 'System Status'

I added an additional tuner existing setup and have messed it up somehow. The existing card is a Nova-T dual tuner PCI card. The new card was a PCTV DVB-T2. After I added it everything seemed OK, but then I noticed that I was getting failed recordings. I tried deleting the new card, then all the car...

Re: Native file archive without GUI

Manual test complete - I've also exported the whole of the recorded table as a file via phpMyAdmin (I'm sure there a more progamatic way to do it with mythtv python modules, but I can't find any documentation) I'm going to work on a script that creates archives based on lines in the file. I really s...

Re: Native file archive without GUI

Hi Kwisher. I did find that script when searching, but I couldn't really understand how it works (not patient enough). I've tried another tack. I've created a native file archive on the new system to understand the format. I've then edited the archive to strip out the vast majority of the lines in t...

Native file archive without GUI

I have a very old frontend/backend (0.25) which is stuffed full of a decades worth of stuff I haven't watched, but can't bear to delete ! The frontend screen never shows the menu, draws the background and then sits at 100pc CPU. I've given up on troubleshooting it now, and build a new frontend/backe...

Re: Nova-T 500 crashing

To be honest I've given up and re-built the system with 16.04LTS and it all worked OK - of course it could be the clean install, or it could be the version.

Nova-T 500 crashing

Recently installed Ubuntu 18 LTS. I've deleted the "dvb-usb-dib0700-1.20.fw" firmware file from /var/lib/firmware after reading that that was a common problem (albeit on older systems) I'm going to paste the whole of an output of 'dmseg -T' in a separate post below in case it is of use but I will pi...

Re: Moved turner card from (very) old system to new - no channels

OK - slightly embarrassing, but I'm prepared to fess up. I put the actual co-ax aerial that was connected to the tuner card when on the old system, and suddenly the scan found channels. The two aerial cables come down from the mast-head amp in the loft, but go to different rooms in the house Now, in...

Re: Moved turner card from (very) old system to new - no channels

Tried a scan with longer timeouts - verrrryyy slow but same result. On the old box there is nothing that looks relevant... $ ls /etc/modprobe.d/ alsa-base.conf blacklist-modem.conf nvidia-304_hybrid.conf blacklist-ath_pci.conf blacklist-oss.conf nvidia-current_hybrid.conf blacklist.conf blacklist-ra...

Re: not in group 'mythtv' popup on first run of mythtv-setup

Thankyou - yes - that was the problem - mythtv user had a different IP address and db password in it - from the old server - I think I might have typed the old server's IP in without thinking at some point in the setup (years of muscle memory :) ) Now backend starts on reboot. Just got to get my tun...
