Re: Help: MythTV is constantly broken

It appears that the problems were network related. After getting my network card stabilized myth has been stable as well. The only issue I have is that the server I have myth running on sometimes doesn't show up in the windows network, which I understand is a common problem with windows networking. ...

Re: Help: MythTV is constantly broken

I have learned from this exercise that MythTV has some network complexity. You need to get the network stabilized and I think that has been the problem.

Re: Help: MythTV is constantly broken

My bad. The gateway in /etc/network/interfaces had a typo. All is well.

Re: Help: MythTV is constantly broken

That was NOT a good idea @Cato Lindsell. After removing Network Manager, I have no network services. On reboot, the system says "waiting 60 more seconds for network configuration" and then says "booting with incomplete network configuration." What do I do now?

Re: Help: MythTV is constantly broken

That's a great suggestion and it would address Bill's point to ensure that Network Manager doesn't try to takeover. I will do that.

Re: Help: MythTV is constantly broken

It has always been static. I am suspecting DNS issues have been the problem. All is well now, but I don't know if it will stay that way.

Re: Help: MythTV is constantly broken

Good point stuarta, wifi and powerline could cause latency. However, I am running Gigabit Ethernet. I also upgraded to an Asus RT-N65U router, which is one of the fastest, but it probably doesn't make a difference because all traffic is on the LAN.

Re: Help: MythTV is constantly broken

I haven't kept a detailed log of each problem I have encountered over the last three years. As I said above, the most common problem is that the FE can't reach the BE. I also said above that it usually turns out to be an Ubuntu or networking problem. I haven't tracked details beyond that. Most recen...

Re: Help: MythTV is constantly broken

Yes I am in Canada. I installed Myth to get rid of cable, so I am OTA using an HDHR dual tuner. My FE is also an Atom Ion (Zotac zbox) in my case. I run ubuntu on the BE. By far the most common problem is no PVR clients running, meaning that the FE can't reach the backend. Usually I blunder around f...

Re: Help: MythTV is constantly broken

Another good suggestion. TV Headend looked like a pretty difficult install so I decided to stick with Myth a while longer. I have been searching for answers and trying various things for about 8 hours now (another evening lost to MythTV) and it suddenly connected. I am now thinking it is a hardware/...

Re: Help: MythTV is constantly broken

That's an interesting thought. In the past though, there was always a software fix. It wasn't always Myth, it was sometimes Ubuntu that broke Myth.

[SOLVED] Help: MythTV is constantly broken

I run MythTV on an Ubuntu backend with XBMC (windows and unbuntu), Openelec, and MythTV/Unbuntu front ends. It breaks about every 6-8 weeks and I spend from 3 hours to 2 weeks without TV while I try to repair it. It is usually the BE that breaks. This has been going on for about 2 years and I have t...

Audio Sync Issues with .27

I have been using mythtv BE and openelec/xbmc FE up to release .26 without any trouble. The BE automatically upgraded to Ubuntu 13.10 which also upgraded myth to .27. This broke the installation as openelec/xbmc is at .26. Until xbmc catches up, I reverted to mythtv on the FE however the audio almos...
