Re: mythconverg_restore fails to restore database

./mythconverg_restore.pl --help --help reveals info about the database information file vs resource file.. The database info file is a way of providing all required cmdline options in a text file as tuples. So much cleaner & reliable to script than hacking a single cmd line up. cmd option arguments ...

Re: netflix integration

Your version of MythTV might still have NetVision. The latest build logs show that MythNetVision plugin is not being built. There is a list of dependencies for NetVision with python bindings at the top. I do not have that package libmyth-python or any mythtv pkg installed. When you build from source...

Re: Changing delivery system from DVB-T to DVB-T2

The debug settings could just be changing the timing or serializing of some operations by loading the filesystem. Do you have a large enough signal & tuning delays (see MikeB2013's post) ? Does Kaffeine have configurable tuner delays? I successfully used "Open on Demand " for only one of the (4) tun...

Re: mythweb, imdb form and tmdb number

I've never updated the metadata from mythweb interface.. but in mythfrontend the numbers require a prefix.

The prefix for:-
- movies is "tmdb3.py_"
- tv shows is "ttvdb.py_"
(do not include the double quotes)

Re: Can't connect to backend after upgrade from 0.27 to 30

As you use a remote FE & can access the DB server remotely.. you need & have the DB server listening on an IP address. The default MythTV install has FE & BE configured to use localhost (no net socket). If your DB server is using IP address then there is a problem. Your logs show that BE & mythtv-se...

Re: booting race conditions with networked tuners

But if you can fix this by restarting mythbackend isn't the problem with myth-backend service?
You can add a wait on networking in the myth-backend service.

There been a lot of hdhomerun churn in the last year. External lib pkg: https://code.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/4b577277a227b4851a4bce0783137800de5588a5/mythtv Appears that later libhdhomerun removed some features & these were recoded into mythtv. https://code.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/e50d9c7d3a90ad...

The same tuner & demod chips are in the HVR-1255 & those ICs have had support from about kernel 3.19/3.20? (4 years ago?)

Re: Hello [Anyone Using MPEG-4]

Broadcast H264 cutting was always a tricky because of early video packets, LATM AAC, B-frame keyframes & slice refresh etc all which caused years of issues with ffmpeg. But really all that was needed was a packet filter "bgrep", I never got that finished. The ad breaks here are exactly 4 minutes & w...

Re: Hauppauge WinTV-dualHD model 1595 does not find channels (missing firmware?)

Your kernel contains the v4l-dvb modules & that is not so new.
Only the firmware is in a package.

Install Ubuntu on the x86-64/amd64 platform & try the warm start experiment there.
Is also easier to try the later kernel & HWE kernel & Hauppauge PPA

Re: Hello [Anyone Using MPEG-4]

I also used the nova-t-500 'usb interface on a PCI card' tunercard for many years .. was rock solid until it died in a lightning/thunderstorm. But external USB means:- - nasty small weak antenna connections - barely adequate mechanical strength - probably marginal RF design - typically cheaply made ...
