Re: Are storage directories used or the old Video Settings - Directory For Fanart...?

Thanks. The directories do not exist on my setup either (not even .mythtv/Video) I was mainly wondering if I should be creating them or make them point to valid directories and how they interact with the storage directory setup. As I use storage directories I will just ignore these settings.

Re: Are storage directories used or the old Video Settings - Directory For Fanart...?

Any chance of looking at what is in the following directories on your setup to try to find out what these directories are used for? Should these settings even be in the application with the move to storage directories? Possibly theme dependant but to view the settings Frontend - Setup - Media Settin...

Re: mythwelcome - does not shut down

Many thanks - fixed now. Very useful notes. That nvram-wakeup Restart command was one issue - I had it set to a comment, never imagining that it would then be invoked in preference to the backend closedown command! sudos and permissions also needed fixing - but not without a little drama - creating...

Re: time for a new backend / daily driver

I believe you can use VDPAU with AMD. It one point it was better than VAAPI for AMD. But the extra VDPAU filters have been removed from layer MythTV decode-playback.. I haven't upgraded from Dec 2019 because HQ scaler etc is non-functional & can't work out how to patch them back in (hard coded if n...

Are storage directories used or the old Video Settings - Directory For Fanart...?

Can anyone help with how the Backend Storage Directory setup for Fanart, Banners et al corresponds to what looks like the same options in the Frontend Video Settings? Should the settings in Frontend Video Settings be set to the same paths as the corresponding storage directories? The Frontend Video ...

Re: time for a new backend / daily driver

Very similar to my recent new build after probably just about as many years. It works great and generally very happy the only slight (and very slight) disappointment is the AMD deinterlacers are perhaps not a good as the very old NVIDIA card I used to use. See AMD VAAPI deinterlacers, low/medium wor...

Re: Two HDHomeruns stop recording at the same time

Long shot but check that a software or hardware firewall rule is not turning on mistaking the traffic to the HDHomerun devices as a DOS attack? The firmware is relatively new did the problem possibly start when you upgraded the firmware on the HDHomeruns? Could the problem be specific to certain cha...

Re: mythwelcome - does not shut down

Is there check list, somewhere that I have not found yet, to test the Shutdown setup completely? Can you provide any details on if you have prefixed the commands in setup with sudo, have you added anything to your sudoers file, whether you are running a pre shutdown check script and whether the imm...

Re: ip:6544 is not secure it is ignoring parental settings on videos?

Thanks that has allowed me to set to None now :D For whatever reason though using / doesn't work now (it returns false) or perhaps it never worked and and it was All that worked. For reference these are the services I have come across so far. Not sure how to get it back to default where Setup is pro...

Just tried accessing http://ip:6544 and all Video - Video Gallery (MythVideo) entries are visible completely ignoring the parental settings that are prompted for when using the frontend application?

AMD VAAPI deinterlacers, low/medium working, High does not?

Hi, Currently running a new install of v31 and using default VAAPI Normal configuration on an AMD iGPU. When I use the Low or Medium single or double rate deinterlacer playback data shows that VAAPI Basic and VAAPI Adaptive is the active deinterlacer. When I choose High deinterlacer playback data re...
