Re: Resurrecting a Simplified Version of Mythbuntu Control Centre

Installing Xubuntu 21.04 using the minimal install option does not install the aptdaemon and python3-aptdaemon.gtk3widgets packages. It also does not install the GUI Software Updater. A new MCP version has been added to the PPA with aptdaemon and python3-aptdaemon.gtk3widgets added to the debian con...

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 ...

Re: mythtv-setup freezes upon launching

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...

[Solved] IR Remote Keys Repeat Many Times Starting with Kernel 5.8.0-49

After pressing a key on my IR remote, the key is repeated about 500 times. Is anyone else having this issue? This is also being discussed on the mailing list: https://lists.archive.carbon60.com/mythtv/users/636833 I filed a bug report here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1926030

Re: Mythfilldatabase runs, but doesn't insert into guide

Need to run mythfilldatabase as the same user that runs the backend. This is usually user mythtv. If setup was done using user stefan, the necessary files need to be copied to the backend user (probably mythtv) directory.

Re: Streaming music from MythTV to Android

I use VLC on my Android phone to play music from the same directory that is accessed by MythMusic. On my backend Ubuntu box, I started Files (aka Nautilus) and used the "share this folder" option. After that, VLC could find and play the music.

Re: New User- Windows 10 PC

Consider dual booting. You can easily install Ubuntu and keep Windows 10 to use when desired. One of the most popular operating systems for MythTV is the long term support (LTS) Ubuntu version, which is currently 20.04. After installing the Ubuntu LTS desktop version, Mythbuntu Control Panel can hel...

Re: One channel has its audio mix mixed up (ATSC, Happauge 4 USB Tuner, HDMI output)

Does VLC play the recording okay using two channel stereo? I have never tried it, but I think the MythTV video library can be set to play videos using a player (external player) other than MythTV Frontend as explained here . You could try copying the recording to the video library, and set it to use...
