Re: Upgrading from .27 to .29?

Forgot to answer your other questions:
mythtv 29 provides systemd service files, the mention of upstart in the guide is only for older systems e.g. 14.04.
You can use Ubuntu server, Lubuntu, Xubuntu etc. I generally use Xubuntu, but have used Lubuntu.

Yes, you can go directly to mythtv 29 will automatically upgrade your 0.27 database, it might take a while (depends on size) so be prepared to wait - there is no progress indication. I rec...

Re: Mythconverg Info

Have a look at mythlink.pl see https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Mythlink.pl It reads mythconverg database and creates symbolic links in a directory you specify (make a new directory for this purpose as when run all directory contents are deleted) which includes the full path to the files (so use somethin...

Re: Temporarily disable recording

Another possibility is to set "Live TV order" and "Schedule order" to 0 (zero) using mythtv-setup>Input Connections>Interactions between inputs. Setting to 0 prevents the tuner from being available for use. Doing this leaves everything "as is" recording rules etc, when you want to resume recording/L...

Re: Occasional Failed Recordings

@Doppel-D You may still get EIT data even with "Use DVB card for active EIT scan" not selected for all Capture Cards as mythtv has another EIT mode "passive" which will be used if the Video Source has EIT enabled and the individual channel has EIT allowed (useronairguide ticked in mythweb). The pass...

Re: Occasional Failed Recordings

Possible but not likely that the recent mythtv 29 changes would have impacted recordings, a couple of changes were related to EIT scanning, but these were to do with resuming EIT scan after a timeout and only running EIT on visible channels. I only set EIT on one tuner per Video Source as this minim...

Re: Unable to watch TV

It does look like permissions issue, although I would have expected mythtv-setup complain on exit. recording folders/directories need to be owned by mythtv and also have certain permissions, so try the following to resolve sudo chown -R mythtv:mythtv /home/ed/Videos sudo chmod -R u=rwx,g=rwxs,o=rx /...

Re: Fresh load of Mythtv 0.29 on Ubuntu 18.04 database failed to start

I use the following to install mythtv 29 (or 30-pre master) on a clean install *Ubuntu 18.04, after which you can restore any previous mythconverg database backup if required. Everything is done in a terminal session. First make sure Ubuntu 18.04 is up to date sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade # if n...

Re: All Recordings are Failing as Damaged at Between 1 and 5 Mins in Length

Running w_scan was a long shot, Brad Love thought it probably would not show the problem, he was correct. The problem is how to easily trigger the mpeg risc errors on demand. I get these errors (non-fatal) maybe one every few weeks from my QuadHD DVB card. The w_scan run time of 4 minutes is fine, i...

@crum Brad Love at Hauppauge has responded, due to my time zone difference , I suggest you monitor the issue thread at https://github.com/b-rad-NDi/Ubuntu-media-tree-kernel-builder/issues/51 There is a utility w-scan that scans for channels which may provoke the mpeg risc errors (you are seeing a lo...

Thanks for the logs, the full dmesg output is very useful and I have raised a new issue at:

Re: All Recordings are Failing as Damaged at Between 1 and 5 Mins in Length

Regarding logs, snippets can be misleading, it is best to post the whole log to somewhere like pastebin and post the link pastebin responds with to the file on this forum. As an example, to put the output of dmesg command to on to pastebin, just use the following in a terminal session: dmesg | paste...
