Re: Deleting records from channel table

I would start with deleting unused video sources. All channels associated with these video sources are then also deleted. And yes, deletion of a channel means that date&time are entered in the deleted field and this means the channel record will be deleted when there is no recording anymore from tha...

Re: EPG not being populated

I do not really understand the problem from your description. Some questions: - What did happen at 4 October 10:30am? - What do you mean with "The EPG stopped displaying events"? - Does this mean that the Program Guide in mythfrontend does not show any programs anymore? - Does the Program Guide in m...

Re: Failed recordings on only one channel

OK so the HDHomeRun does work now with the latest firmware and new video source. That is progress! When you connect your DVB-T tuners also to that new video source then it could be that you need to do a new channel scan with a DVB-T tuner. After that both the HDHomeRun and the DVB-T tuners should wo...

Re: V31 - Recording fails part way through

Recording something via an USB tuner is done already for a long time by a lot of people and that code has, to the best of my knowledge, not recently been modified so I do not expect an obvious error in the software. It would be interesting to know the model number of your processor and possibly also...

Re: HDHomeRun, MythTV 0.31, Pi4 - stuck on not able to tune to a channe

MythTV works OK with the latest firmware of the HDHomeRun. Your HDHomeRun can find the channels by itself so that works OK. I am sure we can get this sorted out. It is correct to select "us-cable" and you select this in the Video Source page of mythtv-setup. Before you do the Full Scan you have to s...

Re: V31 - Recording fails part way through

The following line: DeviceReadBuffer.cpp:528 (Poll) DevRdB(/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0): Poll took an unusually long time 3062042 ms is the line that looks suspect. I think it could be a hardware issue assuming that you have put an old card in a new machine. A while ago there was a similar issue and...

Re: Recording Tuner Changes Channel While Recording

No clue yet, but maybe that comes when looking at the log output of mythbackend.
Can you please post the mythbackend log?
Preferably with the "-v channel,record" debug output options.

Re: HDHomeRun, MythTV 0.31, Pi4 - stuck on not able to tune to a channe

Thanks heyted indeed it is likely that the scan is done for OTA and not for cable. I've updated the Wiki since with an ATSC paragraph: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Channel_Scanning#ATSC_configuration And please note to use the LEFT ARROW key to get back to the scan menu after having selected the modu...

Re: HDHomeRun, MythTV 0.31, Pi4 - stuck on not able to tune to a channe

You do not mention that you actually did a channel scan with mythtv-setup. This will pickup the frequencies for all channels that you can receive. You never need to enter frequencies manually, but you can change channel numbers and callsigns etc manually once all channels are found. Channel scanning...

Re: Failed recordings on only one channel

The first steps are updating the firmware and doing the scan with the HDHomeRun on a new video source. Do not delete anything for the time being.

Re: Failed recordings on only one channel

The command line given is only to start mythtv-setup, the rest is then done via the screens. The command line options given causes lots of debug information to be produced which with a bit of luck helps us to fix this. Also, doing a service scan is a good way to test the system. The HDHomeRun suppor...

Re: Failed recordings on only one channel

A scan is always done for a single video source using one of the capture cards that is connected to the video source. In your case video source 7 is then connected to the two HDHomeRun tuners. In mythtv-setup page Channel Editor you select the video source and then you can go to the scanning page. T...

Re: Failed recordings on only one channel

Interesting! Output of hdhomerun_config is similar to mine but mine does return something for the "get vchannel". The firmware from 2015 is quite old and I suggest the first thing is to update the firmware to the latest. I have here version 20200521. Another possibility is that something has gone wr...
