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...

Re: Unexpected Recording Conflicts

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...

Re: Unexpected Recording Conflicts

The lsof messages are normal when running the command as root and the device is in use. If you run "dmesg | grep frontend" you should see : mike@1804-test:~$ dmesg |grep front [ 10.981381] SAA716x Budget 0000:02:00.0: DVB: registering adapter 0 frontend 0 (TurboSight TBS 6280 DVB-T/T2/C)...

Re: Astrometa DVB-T2 USB stick

DVB-T2 is provided by Panasonic MN88473 driver and firmware and uses /dev/dvb/adapter(n)/frontend1. If you do "dmesg | grep frontend" in a terminal session you should see something like : [37473.062114] usb 1-1: DVB: registering adapter 4 frontend 0 (Realtek RTL2832 (DVB-T))...

Re: Can only log in to MySQL from #

OK, last try.
Have a look at the last section of https://unix.stackexchange.com/question ... s-in-mysql

If this is the cause make the change sudo systemctl set-environment MYSQLD_OPTS=""
and then run
sudo systemctl restart mysql.service

Re: Can only log in to MySQL from #

It is possible that in one of the .cnf files in /etc/mysql/ and subdirectories that there is a line under [mysqld] section with skip-grant-tables in it. Just comment out the line or delete it and then reboot. A quick way of searching is sudo grep -Ri "skip-grant-tables" /etc/mysql/ This will list al...

Re: Can only log in to MySQL from #

Did you use thelma as the login name when you installed Mint or did you add thelma as a user later. If the later I suspect thelma does not have the appropriate group memberships.

Re: Can only log in to MySQL from #

I think the issue is that depending on mysql version a lot of the information is out of date, the following applies to to mysql version 5.7.6 and later. A default install of Linux Mint 19 gives mysql version 5.7.25 as of writing, and mysql -uroot -p will not work, use sudo mysql instead. Before doin...
