[SOLVED] 0.29 backend crashes

Hi Bill,
I'm going to tentatively mark this as solved. Backend sprang to life after I changed IP address from 127.0.0.1 to the DHCP allocated one of 196.168.x.y and the log showed it updating schemas. Now all I need is a stable xubuntu.
Many thanks for the pointers.

Re: 0.29 backend crashes

Hi Bill,
as I think you suspected, that showed 'empty set'.
However, the system started complaining that the root partition was read-only and on reboot was corrupt.
I think this backend issue will have to take a back seat until I've resolved the filestore issue.
Thanks

Re: 0.29 backend crashes

Hi Bill, thanks for your reply. That curl gives 'failed to connect to localhost 6544: connection refused. Wouldn't that be expected because backend isn't running? hostname returns myth (as expected) ping localhost works, as does 'ping 192.168.x.y' from both the myth and another system. I think I was...

0.29 backend crashes

I'd appreciate any words of wisdom here. I have set up xbuntu 18.04 on a test disk and installed Mythtv 0.29 combined FE and BE. My tuners are Hauppauge T500 (dual) and a Hauppauge USB stick, both DVB-T. The hardware runs Mythbuntu 14.04 reliably. I had problems with nvidia 8300 graphics but think I...

Support for NVidia Geforce 8300

I have an Nvidia driver problem and would appreciate advice. My 'live' Mythtv system is based on a 2009 vintage Asus M3N78-EM mobo which has an AMD CPU and Nvidia GEforce 8300 onboard graphics. It's running Ubuntu 14.04 and Mythtv 0.27. The graphics driver is Nvidia 304.117 and the whole setup is ve...

Re: Retuning problem

Assuming you are on the main Chrystal Palace transmitter. You need the information from https://ukfree.tv/transmitters/tv/Crystal_Palace. This lists each of the multiplexes, in your case 9 (including the local multiplex) Two comments: I just do not trust that site. a) All the frequencies mentioned ...

Wiki edit - CAPTCHA problem.

I have just tried to edit a wiki page and include a url link to the bug tracking site. I was required to verify that I was not a robot with a Captcha window, but it seems broken. 'Please enter text' but no text suppled. Instead it gave the message: reCAPTCHA V1 is shutdown. Direct site owners to g.c...

Re: Nova-T 500 crashing

Yes - I recall creating that file under 14.04 and earlier versions to get the lna low noise amplifier to work.
Don't forget to cold boot it afterwards.

Re: can not set channels to look at antenna or input. of choice. I have 4 hdhomeruns to 4 antennas.

Out of interest, did you consider mixing the output of the 4 aerials then splitting to the tuners?

Re: van not set channels to look at antenna or input. of choice. I have 4 hdhomeruns to 4 antennas.

You do have an interesting configuration! If the Homerun is configured like other tuners then yes, one source per antenna/tuner and scan once per source. You may well end up with duplicate stations – one of your aerials may pick up from a wrong transmitter and the Myth scheduler may well choose that...

Did you turn on the amplifier (lna)?

I'd appreciate some enlightenment on the setup for Schedules Direct as I'm trying to perfect the routines in my channel editor: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Channel_Editor. There appear to be two areas where a bit of code can help: a) squirting the XMLTVIDs into the database b) Generating the source ...

Thanks diyhouse - not only for your positive comments here but also for your inspiration in suggesting the use of ServiceID in the first place and for your very valuable beta testing and feedback! Much appreciated.
