Re: Mythtv - wrong screen

I would suspect some tricky desktop manager feature that makes both screens one desktop. xorg xinerama extension? When I last had 2 displays on mythv box (*buntu 14.04) was using nvidia & separate xscreens. So much has changed since then & some of it has made things worse. For e.g. It is very hard t...

Re: Strange audio problem when playing recorded show

Start the FE from terminal with -v playback Could be related to alsa buffers.. but why did it just start happening now? After discovering the actual audio device being used you could try: echo 192 | sudo tee /proc/asound/card0/pcm1p/sub0/prealloc Many years ago (pre systemd) this could be "fixed" ea...

Re: FrontEnd won’t connect on remote computer Myth 31 Ubuntu 20.04

The MBE has to use real IP addr if you want to use remote BE or FEs. This is what my setup has with IPs changed to your MBE: BackendServerAddr=192.168.0.102 BackendServerIP=192.168.0.102 MasterServerIP=192.168.0.102 MasterServerName=colossus Guess the obvious questions is:- how did you end up with d...

Re: FrontEnd won’t connect on remote computer Myth 31 Ubuntu 20.04

Hi bill6502, I changed bind-address to :: & can now use socket connection on local BE-FE. Seems snappier especially in News RSS feeds. With mysql 5.7: mysql -h | MBE config.xml bind-address localhost 127.0.0. | localhost 127.0.0.1 192.168.1.32 192.168.1.32 yes no | no no yes :: yes tbd | yes tbd yes...

Re: FrontEnd won’t connect on remote computer Myth 31 Ubuntu 20.04

Pinging another box only means the network is up & hostname (if used) is resolved. If you ping 'colossus', from remote FE, it probably fails as you do not have a name resolver service &/or no entry in /etc/hosts file Your mysql server is not listening on a external IP address. You can only connect t...

Re: FrontEnd won’t connect on remote computer Myth 31 Ubuntu 20.04

It is okay to have multiple BackendServerAddr & BackendServerIP as long as the hostnames are different. Mine has old remote BEs & FEs.. The Master (not sure for how long!) backend is set by MasterServerIP etc. MasterServerIP 192.168.1.32 NULL is fine. I recall this always being that way. AFAIU If yo...

Re: Myth 29 - channel scan finds no channels when previously worked.

briggella w_scan is deprecated. Even if you build it from source (which you must), I recall it does not work with T2 & later T2 tuners. It may not work with current kernel v4l2-dvb media drivers. Your new ganged array antenna is much better for dvb-t/t2 than directional hi-gain as dvb-t/t2 modulatio...

Over the years I've tried to collect every ticket or post's video sample to use for testing stuff.

Re: DVD menus freezing in episode section since updating to v31

Robert I doubt this has any affect on your DVD playback but.. Your GT1030 is not listed (by Nvidia) as supported by the latest legacy driver 390.. Should be using 440. Last DVD I played in MythTV was excellent (VDPAU & similar build to v0.31) The whole linux desktop/Xorg is a train wreck. Was better...

Assessment of master (new render & avsync)

Just a comment after comparing recent master to a point back near end of last year (Nov 2019). The comparison was made over a couple of nights of watching normal broadcast recordings & playing some test tracks. I tried out master (several weeks ago) after messing up my own branch so it would not com...

Re: Mythpreviewgen Not Happy

Did you pull into a new clean folder or over the top? You're using your own patches as well? I would suspect 'distclean'.. but you probably already did that. But make clean & distclean have to be run in the build folder before you pull the latest source to be totally robust & successful. Plenty of t...

Re: "No Recordings available, or screen loading..."

Could just be that the mythbackend server is not running. I would guess some update changed or broke some configuration or required component.. You could check using some system log or "top" or something similar to below... ps -AH | grep myth *buntu 18.04 or later: journalctl -xe sudo systemctl stat...

Re: Metadata lookup causes Backend to deadlock

Yes, FE was always running when it happened but that could just be down to chance & the pop-up message notifications in FE make you fully aware.

I try might disable metadata lookup for month & see if this issue stops. TV guide data here has problems anyway (everything is a movie etc).

Re: Metadata lookup causes Backend to deadlock

@jksj A very similar error happens for me (running version master from couple months back). Occurs once a week lately .. was 3 times a week a few months back. Logs imply it is metadata lookup. For me, the backend can still successfully record & respond to 'mythbackend --testsched' just all network/s...
