Re: Occasional Failed Recordings

Given the signal around 70% it does not look like a signal problem you have FE_LOCK so it should be fine. The "snr 100%" may not mean anything - it just depends on the card driver implementation of statistics. There is a lot of history around statistics, basically the original standards were open to...

Re: Occasional Failed Recordings

Are the failed recordings across all multiplexes or only on one multiplex? You can monitor the signals on either of your adapters when recording or watching LiveTV using either femon (sudo apt install dvb-apps) or dvb-fe-tool (sudo apt install dvb-tools). Here is an example of monitoring, the -a3 in...

Re: Hauppauge Model 01595 USB Tuner

Only one tuner is supported on 4.15 kernels from Ubuntu, see Drivers section at https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-dualHD However, Hauppauge (Brad Love) has had the required changes upstreamed to latest V4L, so you can update the V4L subsystem on Ubuntu kernels by following Basic...

Re: problems with xubuntu 18.04 backend and CIR

There is another possible "fix", not the best but it may get you out of the problem with networking so you can investigate further at your leisure. I believe there are some other posts about HDHomerun and networking, but I am not familiar with such devices. It simply delays mythbackend startup for 2...

Re: problems with xubuntu 18.04 backend and CIR

For the mythbackend starting problem before networking see https://lists.gt.net/mythtv/users/609209#609209 There is a slightly easier way to do this using systemctl edit feature (saves creating directories, files, and setting permissions): run in a terminal session "sudo systemctl edit mythtv-backen...

Re: Unable to scan over the air with Hauppauge QuadHD ATSC

Yes, that is the fix. None of the packaged kernels 4.13, 4.15 in apt repos etc will have the fix, but existing kernels can be updated to the latest V4L media tree (which does include the mpeg risc error fix) see https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_Obtain,_Build_and_Install_V4L-DVB_Device_D...

Re: MythTV backend config problem.

Great that MythTV is now working for you. From my experience, the default timeouts for DVB-T/T2 for UK Freeview Capture Cards of 1000 and 3000 need to be increased to 7000 and 10000 respectively. This works most of the time, but there is an issue with Live TV in that it does not always work or chann...

That might be because you have a space character between -- and create_database, it should be --create_database

Re: MythTV backend config problem.

I am assuming Mint 19 (which based on Ubuntu Bionic) with myth 29 from Ubuntu Bionic repository. "ERROR: Unable to do a full restore. The database contains data. " is due to the mythconverg database containing data. You need to add --drop_database --create_database to your command, I suggest you als...

Re: Unable to scan over the air with Hauppauge QuadHD ATSC

As is usual things have moved on since some of my original posts. I don't think EFI is the issue, as the mpeg risc error is known and is usually seen AMD cpus particularly Ryzen and some XEON CPUs and has been fixed in latest V4L, which has to be installed manually on older kernels see https://www.l...

Re: Vbox Multirecord

@paulh OK I have both your VBOX multi record patch and another patch to store the protocol in the DB so we don't have to keep doing the test downloads in my fork. Just need to test it when the BE isn't busy. Paul, I know its been a while, your original changes to store protocol in DB no longer apply...

Re: media_build failing under ubuntu 1804

Not that this helps, but media_build (V4L) is currently broken for me as well on Xubuntu 18.04 with kernel 4.15.0-23-generic. This does happen from time to time. I noticed that your system has a few upgrades waiting to install, which is probably why you are on 4.15.0-20 kernel, not that it really ma...

Re: MythTV backend config problem.

If you need to change mythtv password for mythconverg database you need to get into mysql/mariadb see https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-reset-root-mysql-password-on-ubuntu-18-04-bionic-beaver-linux The "Reset by using skip-grant-tables" option will probably be needed.
