Re: DVB Tuners with multi-standard frontends.

Just an update. The patch is now in mythtv master and so is included mythbuntu ppa 31 builds. This allows direct configuration of tuners such as TBS 6522 (Dual DVB-S/S2,DVB-T/T2,DVB-C), Astrometa USB DVB-T/T2 or any others with two frontends but only a single demux. When configuring the Capture Card...

Re: Xubuntu 16.04 and Mythbuntu 16.04 End of Life This Month

You are not alone with the change to interfaces (using netplan), but you can still use the "old" interfaces method e.g. see https://askubuntu.com/questions/1031709/ubuntu-18-04-switch-back-to-etc-network-interfaces Here is an example (simple case) on my system of netplan file /etc/netplan/01-network...

Re: upgrading to MythTV 30

30 is the current version. You have the correct ppa. It is just the text on ppa 30 page, it has not yet been updated (it was correct when 0.29 was the current release). Note: if running 0.29 and upgrading via the mythbuntu 30 ppa you need to run "sudo apt dist-upgrade" instead of "sudo apt upgrade"....

Re: How On Earth Do You Get It Working?

For *ubuntu 18.04 and later. 1. Use a terminal session to setup mythtv, this includes stopping and starting mythtv-backend, see later in this post. 2. Current release is 30, install from the *ubuntu repositories gets an old version of 0.29 (these repositories usually contain a single snapshot). 3. I...

Re: Freeview HD recordings failing

The good news is that your TBS tuner seems ok, as you can get HD except on CH40+. The only thing I can suggest is a rescan (mythtv-setup>Input Connections from memory - have not used mythtv 0.27 for a long time). Try a scan of all existing transports first. If that does not resolve your problem, try...

Re: Watch Live last-known-good is now bad

It has been a while since I have used .028/fixes, but I do remember the issue. If you go into Programme Guide and highlight a current program on a channel, then press the Menu key (usually letter "m" on a keyboard) it should display a pop-up with an option to "Watch This Channel" select this and pre...

Re: Unexpected Recording Conflicts

No problem with the log, it is just that sometimes the earlier lines in the log give more clues. The permissions are strange, the group mythtv part is fine but I don't know about owner being sshd, normally the owner is also mythtv. The following is what I use: sudo chown -R mythtv:mythtv <storagegro...

Unfortunately that is not a complete log. The items relating to mythbackend startup are missing i.e. before Mar 7 11:49:44. These missing items give details of the environment, including mythtv version, directories etc. I note that the recording directory is /home/mythtv/default/ which whilst not wr...

Re: Programme Guide, HD and SD channels

At first glance it looks strange, but all it is doing is telling you that the program will be recorded, not necessarily on which channel. Upcoming recordings screen has that detail. If you always prefer HD there is an option to tell mythtv. In mythtv frontend go to Setup>Video>Recording Priorities>S...
