IPTV with Mythtv?

Looking to add a few channels to my OTA setup and some of the IPTV sources look like a low cost way to do it. Looks like some have been able to get this working. What's the situation for someone who isn't a programmer? Is this currently possible or is it planned? Are there instructions for setting i...

Re: HDHomerun works with vlc and shows up in backend setup but doesn't record

It's working now but I still show twice the tuners I have. It only allows recording for the tuners I have so I won't worry about that. Not sure if rebooting or what fixed it. The tuner is HDHomeRun Connect Duo HDHR5-2US and has two ATSC tuners.

HDHomerun works with vlc and shows up in backend setup but doesn't record

The HDhomerun shows up in the backend setup and displays the software version and VLC works with the HD config utility. Since the channels are the same (all US OTA) I used the existing "video source" and connected that source to the new inputs under "input connections". I tried looking at the backen...

Re: Support for Nvidia 8400GS?

Thanks! I got it working. Somehow I got some nvidia 390 stuff installed. I hadn't gotten very far with setting everything up so I just started from scratch and everything worked fine. Once the Nvidia driver340 installed I was able to adjust overscan which was the current problem.

Re: Support for Nvidia 8400GS?

Thanks but my real question is 340 still a good and workable driver? I already did a command line command to determine what drivers were recommended (don't have my notes handy on exactly what command that was) and the choices were Nouveau or Nvidia340. After reading some things various places on lin...

Is this really as simple as:

Support for Nvidia 8400GS?

I have read some things about nvidia not supporting drivers for older boards and wondering what that status of this board is - haven't been able to find clear information on this. Ran into some trouble installing the closed drivers but think I made some mistakes installing other things first and got...

Re: HDhomerun setup in Myth 0.19+fixes problems

I finally got the IP address followed by -0. I tried to add another for the second tuner and it also came up as IP-0. How do I get an entry for the second tuner?

HDhomerun setup in Myth 0.19+fixes problems

Got a HDhomerun duo based on reports it was well supported. Now I am having trouble getting through setup. There are pages that describe installation but they claim to require 0.20 or later even though support is reported to be implemented much earlier and I have a selection for these tuners in my s...

Re: HVR1600 tuner lockups

I would like to know what tuner was used for past recordings rather than future ones so I can look at what didn't record and what tuner was used. I do need to upgrade... The transition to ATSC V3 requires broadcasters in the US to continue also broadcasting the current version for at least 5 years a...

HVR1600 tuner lockups

I have two HVR1600 tuners for OTA. Just using the ATSC tuners but have the NTSC ones set up. Occasionally and more frequently lately at least one of the tuners will lock up and not work until I power off the PC and restart. This was very infrequent at first so I set up to restart the machine early e...

Using OTA and one of the stations changed requiring a rescan. I got a failed to open card even though the card was working. I discovered a bug report on this that seems to match my issue and command line stopping the backend worked. https://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/11998 But it referred it to myt...

Recommended OTA tuners?

I have two HVR-1600 tuners that work ok but occasionally lock up and I would like to upgrade. Think this is a known issue but not sure if it has been resolved in later versions. I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and MythTV 0.027. They also run fairly hot. I only use OTA at least for now. SiliconDust HDHomeR...
