Re: Backend on Pi 4

There are many possible reasons for LiveTV/Recordings not working. The good news is that mythfrontend can connect to mythbackend I presume you have setup atleast the DEFAULT storage directory using mythtv-setup. On Pi4, using my script, the storage directories are in /srv/mythtv/ The DEFAULT should ...

Re: Pi Frontend Install hassles

From the log mythfrontend is trying to connect to mythbackend on the Pi4 using 127.0.0.1 (i.e.localhost) In .mythtv/config.xml change the line <Host>localhost</Host> to the ip address of the remote mythbackend e.g. <Host>192.168.0.22</Host> Your ip address will be different from 192.168.0.22 Also ne...

Re: Live TV Will Not Easily Switch From One Channel To Another In A Different Source

I think you need "Browse all channels" selected in mythfrontend setup>Video>Playback OSD.
This works for me in current Master (from memory it worked in earlier versions as well).
I also have "Always use browse mode in Live TV" selected, same screen.

Re: Backend on Pi 4

Sorry for delay in responding - I have been traveling. No idea why it's there, it is original code which I have not changed. I have done nothing to fix any issues with running mythtv-setup from application menu for Raspbian Buster. I only run mythtv-setup from a terminal on Raspbian. After mythtv 31...

Re: mythtv-setup Scan Type country not saved

Depending on how you built and installed mythtv 30 it could be an issue with mythtv Locale Settings. Check in mythtv-setup->1. General->Locale Settings that Channel Frequency Table is set to europe-west. I build from source all the time, but before building from source, I add the appropriate e.g. pp...

Re: mythtv v30 & HDHR5-2US running on Lubuntu 18.04.3 LTS

In Card Type I see an option for HDHomerun but I don't see <id> (type) or any sort of checkbox as you described. So once I have selected HDHomerun I see and entry [HDHomerun: } in the list of capture card devices. Like I was trying to say earlier, (and if I remember correctly) you should see :1 :2 ...

Re: 0.29 Recordings Storage Directories

The default of '/mnt/store' does not work on later versions of mythtv, unless you explicitly create it. For the packaged versions of mythtv running under *ubuntu, a series of default directories are created in /var/lib/mythtv/ see https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Setup_Storage_Directories As a minimum, t...

Re: mythtv v30 & HDHR5-2US running on Lubuntu 18.04.3 LTS

Lubuntu 18.04 with mythtv 30 from ppa:mythbuntu/30 works for me out of the box with HDHomerun Connect Quattro (Model: HDHR5-4DT, Device ID: 1251E907, Firmware: 20190621). I presume it is mythtv-setup Capture Card that is not finding the HDhomerun device. Probably worth checking with command line hdh...

Re: Myth 0.29 - Mythweb won't save any changes

mythweb has a configuration file 20-mythweb.ini which may need the value of "max_input_vars" increased depending on the total number of channels. Early versions of the file had max_input_vars = 1000, with later versions max_input_vars = 10000. I have a lot of channels and use max_input_vars = 30000....

If running *ubuntu 18.04 see post https://forum.mythtv.org/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=3114#p15073 You can substitute the line sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/30 with sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/0.29 if you want mythtv 29 (0.29) which depending on your Capture Card types e.g. using DVB-C (t...
