Re: recorder failed

There is a confirmed bug in network-manager that causes the network to randomly drop. It's been open since 2017-04-06. Originally reported as a avahi bug but now assigned to network-manager. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/avahi/+bug/1586528 I plan to disable network-manager and use /etc/...

Re: Future recordings marked as "Missed"

I guess the bigger problem is how can you, once you discover that the recordings are marked as missed, convince MythTV to record them? I tried going into the Upcoming Recordings menu and highlighting a recording marked such, then choosing "Restart this recording". Of course, that option is available...

Future recordings marked as "Missed"

I am just about ready to completely give up on MythTV. I have several recordings set up to go. The first should have started about a minute ago. But everything for the next six hours is shown as "Missed: This showing was not recorded because the backend was not running." Why is the error in the past...

Re: Prevent Frontend from starting automatically?

Do Alt tab and get to the desktop. Pull up a terminal and execute 'killall mythfrontend. real' and 'killall mythfrontend' several times in a row until the loop ends. You have to do this really quick to stop it. In my almost 6 years of using Mythbuntu as my main OS, I have never been able to get to ...

Re: Prevent Frontend from starting automatically?

If the problem is the network doesn't come up fast enough, go to the frontend general setup and enable database wakeup. Then change the default 2 seconds to a higher number. 5 seconds did it for me when I replaced the HDD with a SSD boot drive. No. It only happens when the network doesn't come up a...

Re: Prevent Frontend from starting automatically?

Unfortunately, neither of these suggestions helps. The first suggestion (Ctrl-Alt-F2) doesn't give me a login prompt, but instead, gives a whole bunch of gibberish (that is, output I don't understand) down the left side of the screen, which, in turn, is partially hidden because of the TV's overscan ...

Re: recorder failed

As we have ascertained that at least some of the problem is due to the network disappearing at random, I think it would be a waste of time doing diagnostics on the tuners until the network issue is resolved.

Any suggestions as to how to find and fix that problem?

Re: recorder failed

On Ubuntu (and variants) The output of dmesg (from a terminal session) may show network issues and other things on the server. The mysql error.log (in /var/log/mysql/) should indicate any issues with connections to the database. Unfortunately I don't know much about HDHomerun tuners, apart from "ma...

Re: recorder failed

I'm guessing you meant: http://www.bpmod.net/mythbackend.log My apologies. You are correct. That log, though, covers over two days and shows all kinds of errors. Could you please restart the backend to create a new log, try Live TV and post the result if it fails. Craig Restarting the backend did n...

Re: recorder failed

I reinstalled JACK from scratch. I have not set up a storage group for the old recordings on DEAN. For the past two days or so I have not been able to get Live TV to work, but I have done some test recordings which have been perfectly successful. Until today. Now I am back to the same problem. The r...

Prevent Frontend from starting automatically?

I know that you can go to Mythbuntu Control Center and check/uncheck the option to start frontend on bootup. However, once the option is selected and frontend starts automatically, is there any way to stop the frontend so that you can subsequently get to MCC and toggle the option? Because the networ...

Is your mysql server on JACK (I noticed some msql reconnects in the logs) ?

I have a combined frontend/backend system plus remote frontends, but my mythbackend logs never show any mysql reconnects.

Yes. JACK has backend, frontend, mysql and storage.

Re: recorder failed

The wiki has a find orphans script https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Find_orphans.py This can find recordings that are in the database but not on disk and cleanup the database so it no longer references these files. The file you gave was 1041_20140206192900.mpg. The 1041 is the channel id (in mysql you c...
