Hi Paul,.. Hope the New Year has brought some better tiding for yourself... One comment about the new Christmas theme was the choice of colours used particularly in the guide,.. depending on the genres of the program or film. Basically the contrast between text and background is poor,.. to make read...

OK so its not built to Logitech standards,.. but for £10,.. who cares. Ordered 10am,.. and arrived 7pm the same day. Just plugged it in to USB port and away it went. Not...

Re: MythTV 29.1 Release

One other distro I must mention is the Raspberry distro,.. this makes for a very cheap and effective front end. ( yes it can be used as a backend,,.. but not recommended, as not really enough horse power ) ------ Frontend shopping list:- 1 x Raspberry Pi 3 1 x 32Gig SD card 1 x suitable power supply...

Re: MythTV 29.1 Release

Creating an 'out of the box' solution takes a lot of time and testing,.. beyond the basic 'adding new features, and making the code work. By concentrating on 'the code', the limited resources available to develop mythTV as a media solution can actually do more useful code development to the products...

Re: Channel editor - new version.

Many tx Phil,.. One of the nice ( major changes) that will certainly assist UK users is the improved matching criteria which now uses serviceID, so chedit can more easily match and distinguish channels with the same name, but with a regional variance, in a UK SAT or Freeview environment.

Hi Mike,.. ( thankyou for your support so far) took the approach this morning to 'start again'.... re-complied from scratch,.. cleaned out old drivers... reloaded firmware files,.. and deleted all FreeView Tuning data, inc. mux's. Did a mux frequency rescan,.. and although 730Mhz finds channels,.. 7...
