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....

Re: Locked out of database OR No database exists

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...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

I don't use nfs much, but I have run a quick test from my pi4 using nfs to a test server (xubuntu 18.04 LTS). Without Wait for network enabled my share does not get connected It is fine if Wait for network is enabled, but this could be luck as I have done nothing extra with systemd to ensure nfs is ...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

Jim, I use a SiliconDust HD HomeRun CONNECT QUATRO (Model: HDHR5-4DT, Firmware: 20190621) all I have done is set "Wait for network" using Raspberry Pi Configuration screen (or sudo raspi-config in a terminal session). My Raspberry Pi's get ip address from my router. This works for me and I do not se...

Re: mythconverg_restore.pl Restores Database But Not For mythtv-setup

Cannot help with CentOS 7, but I can help with Ubuntu. There is an issue on Ubuntu based systems, includes Debian and possibly others in that the "mythtv" user is not correctly added to the operating system plus issues with stopping and starting mythbackend, see post https://forum.mythtv.org/viewtop...

Re: mythconverg_restore.pl Restores Database But Not For mythtv-setup

Is the Hostname on your new system exactly the same as the defunct system ?

If not check the section "Change the hostname of a MythTV frontend or backend" at https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Database_Ba ... or_backend

Re: Changing delivery system from DVB-T to DVB-T2

Your kernel is not stock.. you're running HWE kernel from 3rd party ppa. And if you're using Nvidia video card, you can't use that ppa, you always had to compile media-drivers backports from LinuxTV. Yes, kernel build is slightly modified (as is a Ubuntu kernel) , changes are documented. You can us...

Re: Changing delivery system from DVB-T to DVB-T2

A DVB-T2 capable card should just work with DVB-T multplexes, this is certainly the case here in the UK with my Hauppauge QuadHD card. I receive DVB-T/T2 transmissions from 8 multiplexes, 5 are DVB-T and 3 are DVB-T2. I have Delivery system set to DVB-T2 in Capture Card, with Signal and Tuning timeo...

Re: Restrict tuner to certain channels

It is possible. I am assuming that when you say watching, it includes recording the channel. You need to create a separate video source for each tuner, rather than sharing a video source across a number of tuners of the same type in mythtv-setup>Input Connections. A channel scan in each of the Input...

Re: myth 30 freesat scanning uk

A common cause of the "PLEASE WAIT" message is mythfrontend being out of sync with start channel number (set when you used mythtv-setup>Input Connections). On mythfrontend main menu move down to Programme Guide, press enter key, you should now see program listings, use arrow key (up or down) to move...

Re: Mythtv Light version 29 for Debian Buster

Frank,

I have never used a touch screen with mythtv.
As a complete guess, map a gesture of your choice to produce the Escape key (no idea how to do this)

Probably best to ask the question in PLATFORMS Raspberry Pi section of this board.
