Re: New Install 0.30 Can wake database

Unfortunately the core MythTV team only officially releases source code. The packaging is done by people on the Ubuntu team, and they themselves are no longer using MythTV so that the motivation to keep it up to date may not be there. Until the packaging issues are resolved. For a basic mythtv fron...

Re: Programme Guide Info, OTA or Schedules Direct

SD data can be for up to 20 days, some channels have less e.g. BBC One has around 14 days. The SD data is generally better than that from EIT, better descriptions, more categories and other metadata (Actors, Directors etc). SD also use place holder data (to be announced), so mythtv always reports mo...

Re: Channel Unavailable

Channel Unavailable is usually caused by tuning timeout (your log shows timeout of 5000ms) in pvr.mythtv of Kodi. In pvr.mythtv addon change Tuning Delay (sec) from 5 to 10 in Advanced Tab. If that does not work: Check security pin in mythbackend is same as in pvr.mythtv addon (General tab), usually...

Re: cannot restart following system seizure.

From the logs it look like mysql is not running. In your original post you stated logs were deleted (I presumed this was just /var/log/mythtv/*), did this include /var/log/mysql/ and others ? The following will recreate /var/log/mysql/ and hopefully allow mysql to start sudo mkdir -p /var/log/mysql ...

Re: cannot restart following system seizure.

You can recreate the /var/log/mythtv/ directory as follows:

Code: Select all

sudo mkdir -p /var/log/mythtv
sudo chown syslog:adm -R /var/log/mythtv/
sudo chmod 2755 /var/log/mythtv
The mythbackend and mythfrontend logs will be automatically recreated on the next start.

Re: v30 Could not open Decoder on LiveTV

For the localisation settings issue and without any logs, so I am guessing. It could be due to your user not being in mythtv group (there is a bug in current mythtv packaging due to underlying *ubuntu changes - removal of gksu). In a terminal session what is the output of groups command, you should ...

Re: Setup MythTV with Sat>IP

For your use the default SATPI mapping.m3u will cause issues with mythtv and the mythtv IPTV recorder (I presume this is what you are using). I changed it to have only the following contents: #EXTM3U # empty file For your .3mu file you need something like for each channel (example for astra28e2) #EX...

Re: Database help during Upgrade!

I don't have any information on how long the upgrade database schema will take using mythtv-setup after running mythconverg_restore. I did run a quick test on how long mythconverg_restore took on a backup of my production system mythconverg database which seems to be around the same size as yours: -...

Re: Database help during Upgrade!

Clean install of 18.04 is probably the best, considering the change to systemd and others. A few points, you may be aware of some or all, but just in case. 1. After installing mythbackend, but prior to anything else like running mythtv-setup, you need to run in a terminal session: "sudo adduser $USE...

Just an update. The patch is now in mythtv master and so is included mythbuntu ppa 31 builds. This allows direct configuration of tuners such as TBS 6522 (Dual DVB-S/S2,DVB-T/T2,DVB-C), Astrometa USB DVB-T/T2 or any others with two frontends but only a single demux.

You are not alone with the change to interfaces (using netplan), but you can still use the "old" interfaces method e.g. see https://askubuntu.com/questions/1031709/ubuntu-18-04-switch-back-to-etc-network-interfaces Here is an example (simple case) on my system of netplan file /etc/netplan/01-network...
