Re: RPI4, HDHomerun, UK Freeview ...

There is no mpeg2 license for Pi4, the processor cores are capable of decoding mpeg2 in software. Later versions of mythtv (29,30 and on) have Max Recording (aka multirec) setting in mythtv-setup>Input Connections>Interactions between Inputs, the setting used to be in Capture Cards Recording options...

Re: BBC radio programme recordings

UK Freeview got a country wide update earlier this week (10th September) for some channel changes, rebranding Sony Movies etc.

The previous seg faults were due to Wimbledon mheg changes see viewtopic.php?f=36&t=3236

Re: Compiling on Debian 10

You can user either, personally I use Xubuntu 18.04 Desktop. I have a remote mythtv backend using Desktop with no monitor or keyboard, I just use ssh from another linux machine.

Re: Compiling on Debian 10

In case it helps anyone I have produced a patch which allows fixes/29 to build on Debian 10 (Buster) see attached patch which needs to be applied to packaging before doing ./build-debs.sh fixes/29 Note I do not know what the official support position of fixes/29 is on Debian Buster. There are still ...

Re: Compiling on Debian 10

OK, now I understand. On closer examination it seems that the packaging for mythtv fixes/29 has not been updated for Debian 10 (Buster). So if Debian 9 works for you, that is your best option for quickly getting a working frontend. Edit 20190907 Patch generated to allow mythtv fixes/29 to build see ...

Re: Compiling on Debian 10

Is there any particular reason for using fixes/29 ?
Current mythtv version is fixes/30, which does build on Debian 10 (buster).

The build instructions at https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Installing_MythTV_on_Debian have fixes/29 in the example, just replace with fixes/30.

Re: Backend on Pi 4

Dare I ask: how well does commercial flagging work on a Pi 4? Commercial flagging runs ok for h264 recordings but not for mpeg2 (DVB-T and ATSC) where it fails with segmentation faults. These segmentation faults seem to be arm architecture related. I raised a mythtv trac ticket for DVB-T on this ht...

Re: Frontend on raspberry pi 4

If you are running at default (vc4-fkms-v3d) on Pi4, from Application menu>Preferences>Screen Configuration>Configure>Screens>HDMI-1 you can then set Resolution and Frequency.

What is the display configuration, use with mythtv-light of anything greater than 1080p does not work well for me (I am in UK, so it is 50Hz territory)? You can get all of the infor...

Re: Error Running MythTV setup

If you are referring to this post viewtopic.php?f=36&t=3114#p15073

The command is sudo adduser $USER mythtv
You need to either logout or reboot after this.

Re: Backend on Pi 4

After working with the mythtv FE/BE on my Pi 4 I've noticed one thing not working. The script that MikeB2013 wrote to install all the rest of the stuff you need to run Mythtv backend installed the mythconverg_backup.pl to be run daily. It is not running daily the best I can see. I can manually run:...
