Re: Job queue is backed up

This happens to me every month or two, as well. Simply restarting the backend is enough to get it running again.

Re: Database Optimize/Backup Order

It's perfectly safe to do it in either order. About the only reason I can think of to optimize before backing up is to potentially make the backup a little smaller.

Re: HDHomeRun with mythtv .30

It's also worth noting that, if you compile your own copy of MythTV from source, you will need the "-devel" HDHomerun package, as well. Having just the library isn't enough for the configure script to enable this feature when compiling.

Re: SQL errors in Mythweb

Hi Tony,

I don't normally use Ubuntu, but I looked in a list of files in the package you are likely using, and I think you'd want to add the line to:

Code: Select all

/etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/mysqld.cnf
in the

Code: Select all

[mysqld]
section. Remove the edits you made previously.

Re: SQL errors in Mythweb

Hello, This is due to a recent(ish) change in the MySQL defaults, which cause it to be more strict than it used to be. Short of fixing the SQL code in Mythweb, the easier thing to do is to add this line to /etc/my.cnf: sql-mode="STRICT_TRANS_TABLES,NO_ZERO_IN_DATE,NO_ZERO_DATE,ERROR_FOR_DIVISION_BY_...

Re: 0.29 on Centos 6

I have to ask: why not upgrade to CentOS 7? I use 7 on my backend and five of my frontends, and the upgrade from 6 wasn't too bad.

Re: myhthfilldatabase stopped grabbing listings

I had a similar problem which seems to have been caused by an oddity in the way mfdb does DNS resolution. Does it work if you run mfdb, let it fail, and then immediately run it again? If so, you're hitting the same problem I had. I ended up substituting this wrapper script for a direct call to mfdb:...

Re: Builds

What is the current state of build scripts for version 29 on OS X? I found warpme's pre-compiled frontend, but I also need the backend. It doesn't look like macports includes 29 yet. I'm willing to compile it myself, but not to go through what I'm sure is dependency hell to get it to work. Has anybo...

Re: Watch TV not working

The best idea for diagnosing this sort of thing is the logs, primarily on the frontend, but potentially on the backend as well. The easiest way to start is to run the frontend from an xterm session with "-v playback" added to the commandline and see if anything useful appears there. If not, you may ...

Re: Last update solved a lot of issues

Hard drives are definitely susceptible to data errors caused by vibration. So having your HTPC case right next to a speaker, especially a subwoofer, is probably not a good idea if you use spinning disks. Due to the heat and noise generated by their backend, many people put it in a closet or basement...

Re: Multiple IPTV Encoders

Hi Charles, I have been working on a modified version of mythfilerecorder that takes the output of an arbitrary shell command and pipes that back into the backend, rather than reading a static file. It also accepts a command to tune the required channel. It sounds like this might help for you, too. ...

Hi Gribnif. I'm curious how you managed to get your device working. My code, such as it is, is pretty rough right now. I definitely intend to share what I've done with the world, but I'm still having a big problem that I haven't had time to figure out. I can record one program (or live TV channel) ...

That being said, I can't run mythtv-setup as I get a little tiny window only and can't read a thing since it's all cut-off. Trying to solve that one.
Your default settings might be off somehow. Try running it from a Terminal prompt with "--geometry 1024x768" or the like appended.

Re: HD PVR 2 review / feedback

I recently broke down and bought a Blackmagic DeckLink Mini recorder. Like the Magewell mentioned previously, it is strictly a capture device. One difference is that it uses a PCIe slot. It is also fairly low-cost (about US $137). It is capable of capturing 1080i30 along with up to 16 channels of au...
