Re: v31 configuration guide?

Would symbolic links or some such allow the setup to automagically deal with the mythtv user files?

Re: Replacement SiliconDust Duo not working

Thought I had done all that. The numbers reflected the new tuner numbers. But I must have missed a step or something. I went through the steps again and all is working. VERY BIG THANK YOU! I have the new system on another partition so can boot to it as I have time and try and get it going but this k...

Re: Replacement SiliconDust Duo not working

Tuner has the same IP as before and myth finds it. It just doesn't work when trying live tv or recording.

Re: Replacement SiliconDust Duo not working

V31 seems to have a lot of complexity of install that others are struggling with so I am sure to have some. Thinking I should just get the tuner working with the old install. Not having a working system is causing low SAP in the household. :) I do have the latest software on the tuner. But for some ...

Re: mythtv31 and schedules Direct

I am trying to install a copy of v31 from scratch. Have been using 0.27.6 for years and have forgotten most of the setup details. Also think it was much simpler and better documented then. Really can't complain as it's free and volunteer supported. I understand that and thanks to all those who have ...

Re: v31 configuration guide?

don't think I had to run setup as mythtv on the old setup but mythbuntu may have handled some of that for me. I have been running back end setup from the normal user gui. It's a combined FE/BE so has the desktop/gui. Without mythtv password how is best to run setup as mythtv?

v31 configuration guide?

Long time user trying to install a new v31 on Ubuntu 18.04. My old version of 27.6 under Ubuntu has been working fine so I didn't want to mess with it. But some equipment failures prompted me to do a needed update. Haven't messed with setup for a LONG time. Definitely not a power user but not a tota...

Re: Replacement SiliconDust Duo not working

Thanks for the tip. I am setting up v31 now. Another issue I expect to come up is LIRC. I have an existing LIRC config file so would like to keep running it. But I thing there have been some changes over time that may trip me up. Anything I should know to make that go smoothly? I ran into some overs...

Re: Replacement SiliconDust Duo not working

I am still running 27.6fixes if I remember correctly. First thing I went to the tuners web page and there was a notice that an update was available so I updated. Probably should take this as an opportunity to get up to date and then sort out any remaining issues.

Replacement SiliconDust Duo not working

I lost my tuner to an electrical storm and bought a new one. I can get to it's web page and stream TV via VLC. But for some reason I can't get the tuner to work in Myth. If I go to watch tv in the front end it just flashes and stays at the screen showing watch tv as one of the options. I went in and...

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...
