Re: mythtv-database (v.31) apt upgrade error

ok I granted all privileges to the debian-sys-maint user, and was able to run those 3 commands successfully. the dpkg-reconfigure also ran w/o error. so hopefully this solves the issues with the next update.

thanks!

Re: mythtv-database (v.31) apt upgrade error

1. adding the --host=localhost to the test worked fine. 2. changing the fail_database line in mythtv-database.postinst didn't make any difference with the error when doing the dpkg-reconfigure 3. doing the manual commands failed logging into mysql using the -user=debian-sys-maint, but worked using t...

When running: sudo dpkg-reconfigure, are you prompted for anything?
asks whether other computers will run Mythtv (answered yes), then it crashes with the mysql error with the error in the OP.

Re: mythtv-database (v.31) apt upgrade error

presumably it's one of those wonky mariadb/mysql incompatibilities. Just flagging it for the devs.

Re: Changing recorded filename and info after external transcode?

What I would like to do is, transcode a recording with an external transcoder (handbrake, ffmpeg, etc.) then update mythconverg so that the recording points to the new file (different extension than .ts) and the info about the recording is correct (file size, resolution, etc.) I haven't found an ap...

Fixed in [9f6230f] (for v31-Pre.)

@thezencowsaysmu, if you build from source and can test the fix in v30, please comment here.
looks like the latest patches to the v30 PPA fixed it. Thanks!

[Solved] Mythweb -- missing commas on status tab

Since upgrading to Ubuntu 18.04 from 16.04 and doing the swap from PHP 7 to PHP7.2 as required, the status screen on mythweb is missing commas in the disk space information on the status tab. So instead of 523,432 MB free it shows 523432 MB. Mythtv 30.

Anyone else having this issue?

Re: OS/Distro of choice

After running mythbuntu 14.04 for a year, I recently reinstalled using Lubuntu 16.04, because mythbuntu as a distribution is dead. It installed quickly, adding mythtv and kodi worked just fine, and my database restored without any issues. That said, I really wanted to get away from ubuntu-based dist...

Don't know about sage, but MythTV handles clear qam on hdhomeruns just fine.

Nope they're .ts files with a .TS extension as opposed to during .27 when they were ts files with .mpg extension.

yes, they're still just dates rather than human-readable filenames.

Re: Upgrading 0.27->0.28 plus moving to Mythbuntu 16.04

congrats! i found 28 to be much more resilient than 27 when it comes to tv channels that have flakey signals. Also 28 records as .ts files instead of .mpg files, which is "correct" for USA NTSC hidef and makes other programs much happier when reading mythtv recordings. Other than that, I really have...
