Re: MythTV backend config problem.

I spoke too soon. After rebooting and a system update. I had to re-compile the TV-Card drivers. dmesg confirmed it/they were in place. The backend was restarted and the frontend appeared to do nothing. Restarted from a terminal, it could not find the database. Both are on the same machine. The termi...

Re: MythTV backend config problem.

That did it.

Unfortunately that killed live TV for a bit but it is back now albeit with the default timeouts extended.

I cannot express my gratitude for your help sufficiently.

Than you.

Re: MythTV backend config problem.

I managed to reach the stage of configuring the backend. Upon exit two messages are returned: 1) GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged. (?) 2) ERROR 2003 (HY000) Can't connect to MySQL server on '192.168.0.5' (111 "Connection refused!") followed by: ./usr.bin/mythtv-setup:...

Re: MythTV backend config problem.

I apologise for the delay in following up. Linux Mint issued a release (19) last weekend and it is an LTS release. It made sense to install it over the 18.3 release and then press on. The upgrade was successful in that I could now get into MariaDB but MythTV Backend Setup couldn't find the database....

Re: MythTV backend config problem.

Than you for responding. The MythTV version is 28.0 "mysql -umythtv -p" and similar statements do not get me in to mysql (MariaDB) The password in /etc/mythtv/config.xml is as shown in my original message above, viz: //     <Host>192.168.0.5</Host>     <UserName>mythtv</UserName>     <Password>mytht...

MythTV backend config problem.

Every few years I get MySQL problems when trying to setup mythtv (although running on MariaDB). I had backed up all the MySQL databases from my working Mageia 5 drive on this machine. I had installed Mint 18.3 on a spare drive and now wanted to instal and configure mythtv, both back and frontends.. ...

Re: Retuning problem

I would like to follow the suggestions what technical information does one need to hand?

I tried asking this on https://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/13257 but my entry was rejected as likely spam!

Retuning problem

Recently the frequencies at which various TV stations were operating in the UK were changed. My local transmitter is Crystal Palace in London. I had to install a new wide-band aerial to be able to receive the newly sited group of stations. After retuning my Panasonic TV access was resumed. BUT my de...

Re: MythTV Frontend on MintTV

Forgive me but isn't mysql required only on the backend server?
Why would it need to be running on a remote client?

Anyway, there is no config.xml associated with mythtv anywhere on the system.
How does it get created?

Re: MythTV Frontend on MintTV

The link didn't help, I suspect because some files are missing from the install. Because pastebin's default is 512K I had to split mythfrontend.log into 5 parts: Name - Link -------------- mythfront-1-of-5 n68M76PT mythfront-2-of-5 nLQnfRbQ mythfront-3-of-5 FWVS2Vm7 mythfront-4-of-5 LBt40dzQ mythfro...

MythTV Frontend on MintTV

I have a backend running with a frontend on the same box plus a remote running wirelessly. I am trying to get another remote frontend running on a Mint 18.1 laptop. When I attempt to run it, it goes to the 'Country and Language' screen but just returns there. How can I get to the screen pointing to ...
