Re: Watch TV not working

There are many possible causes of the momentary please wait. Does it go back to the main menu or do you just have a blank screen ? If it goes back the the main menu, try going into Programme Guide, move down to a channel and hit the "m" (menu key), you will get a pop menu, one of the options being "...

Re: mythconverg mysql database inside docker

I think you might need to adjust mysql to force it to listen on tcp. Assuming a package install of mythtv. In /etc/mysql/conf.d there is a file named mythtv.cnf which by default has the bind address commented out (# at start of line) by default is looks like this #bind-address=:: Change the line to ...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

Great that it is now working. I have never used the optional LNB labeling. On my systems with TBS 6981 it has always just worked. The TBS 6981 will also work without the tbsdtv drivers, on Ubuntu 16.04 and later ,as long as the firmware dvb-fe-cx24117.fw is in /lib/firmware/. I use the tbsdtv openso...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

George, Just in case you are not aware, there is a little bug in mythtv-setup in that it does not stop mythbackend from running. mythtv-setup requires exclusive access to tuners and database whilst being used, strange things do happen if mythbackend is still running. So until the bug is fixed, you s...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

I doubt the card is faulty as w_scan finds channels. It is more likely mythbackend configuration requires adjustment. I need to see details of how your tuners are configured. A simple (but not the only) way is to use mythtv services API to get the required data. In your favorite web browser run the ...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

I use the tbsdtv drivers all the time ( as the old tbs closed source drivers only work on kernels upto 4.10). Your Lubuntu 16.04 should have a 4.13 series kernel It is possible that your previous install of the drivers has left some files which are causing problems with the drivers. There is some tr...

Re: Moved turner card from (very) old system to new - no channels

Just a few more thoughts. On your old system do you have anything in /etc/modprobe.d/ relating to your Nova-T 500 e.g. options dvb_usb_dib0700 force_lna_activation=1 ? There is an old post about Nova 500 T on Ubuntu 16.04 see https://askubuntu.com/questions/771260/xenial-upgrade-broke-nova-t-500-tun...

Re: Moved turner card from (very) old system to new - no channels

What is the brand name of the pci card ? Did you allow w_scan to complete and did it actually find the channels, I can see it found some multiplexes but Info: no data from PAT after 2 seconds deleting (QAM_AUTO f = 490000 kHz I999B8C999D999T999G999Y999 (0:0:0)) looks suspicious.

Re: questions about upgrading v28 on UBUNTU 16.04LTS to v29 on UBUNTU 18.04LTS

I have recently changed from Xubuntu 16.04 to Xubuntu 18.04 with mythtv 30pre (from the mythbuntu ppa). I did originally run an in-place upgrade from Xubuntu 16.04 to Xubuntu 18.04, this worked, but in the end I decided to do a clean install of Xubuntu 18.04 and mythtv from ppa with a database resto...

Re: not in group 'mythtv' popup on first run of mythtv-setup

A quick "fix" for your issue about the looping is to run in a terminal session: sudo adduser $USER mythtv Once this has been done, mythbackend will work correctly from boot. Note that you should reboot following this (otherwise it does not work). The cause of the issue is a recent change to mythtv/p...
