Re: Missing "watch this channel" option from the program gui

Just to check are you using the menu key (default 'm') or the select key (default 'enter') when you select a program from the guide. [...] Thank you Perkins. I was definitely using the [select] option (sometimes enter, sometimes spacebar). I have not tried [menu] (I won't be able to test until late...

Re: Missing "watch this channel" option from the program gui

Firstly, check it's missing on all/most channels (you haven't just chosen a dud). Themes could remove the option but I assume you're using a standard one. Try: $mythfrontend -v channel:debug and post a snippet from when you show the menu: I'm expecting RemoteRequestFreeInputInfo ... ChanId (...) - ...

Missing "watch this channel" option from the program guide

When I select the program guide from the main menu (of MythTV's frontend), navigate to an active show, then select the show, I am not presented with the option to watch that channel live. I know that it should be present, from watching a you-tube MythTV demo. Frontend main menu > program guide > sel...

Re: JumpToProgram's OpenFile failed [[ SOLVED ]]

I still don't have a "watch this channel" type option from the program menu. Should I start a new thread for that?

Re: JumpToProgram's OpenFile failed

If you remove the space from that directory (or simply clear the LiveTv storage group - it will use the Default storage group) does it start working ? That was it! Great catch. You're fantastic. :D and I'm embarrassed. :oops: Filename spaces in linux are always trouble, and re-using windows paths b...

Re: JumpToProgram's OpenFile failed

So recording works fine. Playback of a recording works fine. It's just Live Tv that's broken ? It seems so, yes. I have recorded some shows and watched them back without issue. I just can't get live TV. Please try with debug logging: $ mythbackend -v record,channel --loglevel debug We only need the...

Re: JumpToProgram's OpenFile failed

It fails very quickly, which suggests a misconfigured tuner. [...] at the start, I would also expect to see some evidence of your tuners Can you verify that the tuner is installed properly.

Re: JumpToProgram's OpenFile failed

[ ... ] In LiveTv the frontend asks the backend to start recording that file, for it to stream. It's failing - 0 bytes - so we need to see the corresponding backend log as well. [ ... ] More info needed. got it. These logs are from terminal startup of the front-and-back-ends. If this information is...

JumpToProgram's OpenFile failed [[ SOLVED ]]

I'm frustrated. I really like MythTV, but MythTV really doesn't like me back. I'm a windows-to-linux convert (so I have a rather weak understanding of the under-pinnings of linux) that wants to be able to setup a pvr/live-tv setup, and MythTV has stomped on all of my attempts. This effort was lookin...

Re: the grabber, xmltv, & mc2xml

[ ... ] As a matter of interest why do you propose to use mc2xml instead of the more normal tv_grab_ series from the xmltv project for use with mythtv. There is likely to be greater support if you use one of these grabbers as opposed to mc2xml. For example as you are in the USA it is common to use ...

the grabber, xmltv, & mc2xml

Currently, I have the mythtv backend setup to get epg data from the OTA feed. I would like to use the information gathered by mc2xml (creates mc2xml.xml file). I have read the mythtv.org/wiki/Mythfilldatabase#External_XMLTV which tells me exactly how to populate the database from the xml file, but i...
