Re: hevc problems

hhhmmm, doesn't look like it went as planned. I upgraded both the backend server & a frontend unit. The frontend is stating that the backend schema needs updating. The backend server (also has frontend installed too) has the following problems... # mythfrontend --version /usr/bin/mythfrontend.real: ...

Re: hevc problems

It appears that I'm running 0.27. Is there a command line way to upgrade to 0.28, possibly change the apt repos?

frontend capable to play HEVC (x265) content

What are people using for a frontend to play HEVC sources? RPi's aren't good at playing x265 content, the graphics chip isn't ready for that. Of course I'd like it to be as inexpensive and have a small footprint.

Thanks.

Re: Keyboard bindings

Does each Frontend have its own config in the db? Will I have to do this on each & every Frontend I have?

Keyboard bindings

I have a remote control that is a wireless keyboard, it is sending key presses just like a USB keyboard does. It has arrow keys, ESC, Play, Stop, Fast Forward, Rewind, Next Chapter, Previous Chapter buttons. All these work as expected in Kodi on a RPi. MythTV keyboard bindings use a lot of letter ke...

Took it apart & blew it out, also mounted the stand so it sits vertically now. Played Live TV for 24 hours, no freezing. Thanks...

Re: Live TV freezing

I'll watch live TV on the backend this evening, see if it hangs & remotely monitor the log files. I'll also watch live tv on the frontend client & monitor its log files, see if I can see what the problem is. The frontend client uses a SD card for a hard drive, wonder if its going bad, i should run s...

Re: Live TV freezing

All I'm doing is watching live TV. I have no idea what the system is doing in the background, that's why I'm asking. When watching live TV from a client, who is doing the caching? The front end or the back end? What logs do I look at & where are the logs, on the FE or the BE?
