Re: CENTOS 8

I have been using it on CentOS for several years, but have not yet upgraded to 8 (I'm still using 7). They have been doing a pretty good job of keeping backward-compatibility lately, so it might be as easy as just upgrading. If you run into problems, post here and I'll try to help.

Re: Mythtranscode error

Last I checked, mythtranscode is pretty much unsupported for actual transcoding. IIRC, it only supports MPEG2, and nothing newer.

I believe some folks do still use it to pipe the data, with commercial cutlists, to other programs to do the actual transcoding.

Re: Case sensitivity/insensitivity in MySQL queries?

To expand on what bill6502 said, if you want a particular column to be searched in a case-insensitive way, change it to a case-insensitive collation. These end in "_ci", like "latin1_general_ci" and "utf8_general_ci".

Re: Atom CPU Enough Power?

I ran my backend on an Atom-based motherboard for a while. It worked well for most things, however it was only SATA 2. Recording too many streams at once would cause timeouts. Even doing a "check" of my RAID array would be dramatically slow--not because of the CPU, but because of the relatively slow...

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:...
