Re: Can't access recordings on migrated new machine

Problem solved. After what seems like a large number of file permission modifications, including setting the a+x permission for parent directories and one ACL, my frontend can access recordings on the backend when run by mythtv user as a service. I can't really tell what ones were actually needed, b...

Re: Can't access recordings on migrated new machine

OK, so now it makes a bit more sense... When I ran the command Bill suggested to change the log level: /usr/bin/mythbackend --loglevel debug it ran the backend as my user, lindsay. When I run the backend as a service, it's as user, mythtv. So, I guess this implies that user mythtv doesn't have acces...

Re: Can't access recordings on migrated new machine

Well... Without doing anything except gathering the data for my post above (no changes, as far as I know), the recordings are now playing. I went into the website to see if there was an "update/fix database" or something and I saw screenshots of the recordings... went to the frontend, and - they pla...

[Solved] Can't access recordings on migrated new machine

Hi! I have just installed a new Ubuntu 20.04 machine and migrated MythTV to it using backup and restore scripts (from a Ubuntu 14.04 box running MythTV 29). I've changed the hostname and copied all the files, but... When I try to play a recording, I get "Recording Unavailable". Backend log: Aug 26 2...

Re: How do I install the new Python bindings API?

Hi Bill. Long time since this last message. Jim and I would like to move the MythTV platform for Home Assistant forward to make it a standard included platform, which requires the services API to be installable from PyPI. I know we talked about this in the past and you didn't want to maintain it, bu...

How do I install the new Python bindings API?

Hi Bill @bill6502 (or others) I see that the Python API at https://github.com/billmeek/MythTVServicesAPI has been deprecated in favour of: https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/tree/master/mythtv/bindings/python/MythTV/services_api but I don't see any information on how to install it. I want to use it on...

Re: Metadata Lookup errored with exit status 128

I know this post is 2 years old, but I found it when searching for this problem on my Ubuntu 14.04 MythTV 0.28 system... I think I've solved this by: running the last command in Bill's post, then installing missing Python packages: sudo apt-get install python-pip sudo pip install future sudo pip ins...

Re: Get artwork using API

Thanks again for the input. Using starttime and chanid works well. Done. https://github.com/calmor15014/HA-Component-mythtv-frontend/commit/cf0b0da39074451c4e1309a7ba0e3905eab63b93 I was also able to handle video artwork as well. https://github.com/calmor15014/HA-Component-mythtv-frontend/commit/c63...

Re: Get artwork using API

Thanks for the replies daraden and Bill! The start time + channel id seem a bit odd, but I guess that uniquely identifies the playing video in the list so I don't need to get all and process them. That sounds good and a quick test in the browser shows that it works. Recordedid doesn't exist on most ...

Re: Get artwork using API

I have got what I want working - thanks for your help Bill! But I would still like to know if there's a better way to get the program data from the backend for the current program playing on the frontend. It would be great if MythTV would provide a unique identifier to link them together. Currently ...

Re: Get artwork using API

Is there any way to get a unique identifier from the frontend to look up the recorded program details? I would like to use the info on what's currently playing (Frontend/GetStatus) to look up the metadata on that program (Dvr/GetRecorded), but I don't see anything unique. Do I just have to use the t...

Re: Get artwork using API

I just noticed I didn't reply to say thank you... Thank you!
I think I was waiting until I'd tried out what you'd suggested...

I have been following your API updates (v 0.0.8 currently), and will keep trying with your suggestions as well.

Get artwork using API

Hi.
Is there a way to get the program artwork using the Frontend Service API?

I would like to be able to get a (local) URL to an image for the currently playing recording.
