Re: Resurrecting a Simplified Version of Mythbuntu Control Centre

You're welcome. Now that the repos tab is done for now, I was thinking about adding an option in the startup tab to launch the frontend directly without using the default script.

Re: Channel scan finds channels, but doesn't import them

Hi. Here is what I do: In Chrome or Firefox, I go to my.hdhomerun.com. This site redirects to the Prime's LAN IP address after clicking on the HDHomeRun Prime device detected. I verify that "success" is indicated for the authentication, OOB lock, and card validation. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-vurVB...

Re: MythWeb: Channel edits have no effect

trying to change which channels are visible
Consider using Backend Setup (mythtv-setup) instead. In the channel editor, unselect visible for the unwanted channels.

Re: The future of MythTV

My preference is MythTV Frontend but only if it is installed using Mythbuntu Control Panel :D. I have tried Kodi and MythTV Frontend with Comcast cable using a cablecard, and I have had a better experience with MythTV Frontend. I use Leanfront for movies on my projector, but I most often use MythTV ...

MythTV and Mythbuntu Wiki Pages

I updated the help.ubuntu.com/community/MythTV wiki page, and I created a new mythtv.org/wiki/Mythbuntu page. Some of the information on the Ubuntu wiki page may still be old. Do you see anything that needs to change? The new Mythbuntu page is blank for now, but I hope to add some content today or w...

Re: ir-keytable and multiple key presses

There is a bug. See https://forum.mythtv.org/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=4426 . A fixed 5.8 kernel is available, but you currently need to to enable focal-proposed since testing is ongoing.

Re: Drive a smart TV by Wi-Fi

Are you saying you want to play content from the MythTV backend on the TV using wifi? Yes, but a wired connection is more reliable. One option would be to install MythTV Leanfront on a Fire TV stick or other compatible device, and connect the device to the router using wifi.

Re: No volume control on HDMI audio

I had problems with the media center remote and IR receiver such that a single key press would result in dozens and dozens of that action on screen. If Ubuntu is being used, there is a bug in 20.04 and 20.10. According to the person assigned to the issue, the update that will fix the bug for 20.04 ...

I did not read this entire thread, but keep this in mind: When using the Mythbuntu PPA, the backend will run using the mythtv user. If you are not logged in as the mythtv user and use the Xubuntu menu system to launch mythtv-setup, an attempt to stop the backend will be made and fail. Either use sud...

+1 for ATSC 3.0 support. Slightly off topic: It would be great if the content from the user mailing list could somehow be included on the forum.
