intermittent back end connection problem

MythTV normally starts without any problems, but sometimes the front end starts, and then an error message appears saying that MythTV couldn’t connect to the master back end server. When this happens the error message will go away after a short time, then reappear. The only remedy is to turn off the...

Re: find_orphans script won't run

Installing future fixed the problem. find_orphans.py runs normally now.

For the record, I had to install pip-python, not pip:

$ sudo apt-get install pip-python
$ sudo pip install future

find_orphans script won't run [Solved]

I have a system running MythBuntu (MythTV 0.28 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS). I have used the find_orphans.py script many times in the past, and it ran with no problems. However it no longer runs. This started sometime last year. The error message (below) seems to indicate that a module named builtins is mis...

Re: MythTV hard crash - corrupted database?

I figured it out. The secret is to press "m" on the keyboard while in the Watch Video option, and select "scan for changes" from the menu that comes up. When I did that it listed the videos I had moved to /var/lib/mythtv/videos, and got rid of Disc 7, Disc 9, and VR Movie. So all is good with MythTV.

Re: MythTV hard crash - corrupted database?

mythtv setup shows that the video directory is /var/lib/mythtv/videos. I moved some of the recordings into that directory, but they don't show up in the front end. Media Library - Watch Recordings only shows the two shows that were recorded after the database restore Media Library - Watch Videos has...

Re: MythTV hard crash - corrupted database?

The semicolon allowed it to finish. The output said the repair was OK, but the problem continued. I decided to go ahead with the "nuclear option" and run mythconverg_restore.pl. That went successfully and MythTV frontend could start. Unfortunately the backup file was very old, so I've had to rerun t...

MythTV hard crash - corrupted database?

I have a system running MythBuntu (MythTV 0.28 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS). Both front and back end are in the same system. It was working well until this afternoon. It had completed recording a program (over the air). I tried to schedule an additional program. The listing showed the program, but Myth woul...

Re: setup items won’t open

I solved this problem today. I checked my notes, and found that a few months after upgrading to 0.28 I had turned on the anti-tearing option on the AMD video driver. That caused a problem with windows in MythTV. Turning off compositing in Window Manager Tweaks fixed the window issue. I didn't run in...

setup items won’t open

I have mythbuntu 0.28 running on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Both front end and back end are on the same computer. After upgrading from 0.27 on 12.04LTS I used the front end setup to get video and audio working. But now, several months after upgrading, many of the front end setup items, for example video and ...
