Is that Divco dual tuner available in the U.S.?
It was when I bought mine ~10 years ago. Good luck finding them now.

Re: Recommend OTA ASTC tuner card

$100 for a quad tuner is cheap cheap cheap. I paid more than that for a single tuner years back, and gave them away because they didn't work that great and replaced them with 3 dual tuners that also cost over $100 each at the time. Dual or quad will probably only have one input for a cable. Any newe...

Re: KCBS LA not Found after frequency change

Don't live in LA and don't have a hd home run but would assume you'd need to run the scan on the hd home run first.

Re: Recommend OTA ASTC tuner card

the more you split the cable the more signal strength you lose. I've got 10 tuners. 6 in my mythbox and 4 to TV's. So I needed a distribution amp to increase signal strength once i got past 6 tuners. A lot will depend on how many times you split the cable. Also depends on the quality of the tuners. ...

Re: Error: MythTV database has newer TV Schema

You can't upgrade the backend version without upgrading the frontend to the same version. Just upgrade the frontend to the same version as the backend and you should be good. wes@mythfe0:~$ mythbackend --version Please attach all output as a file in bug reports.

Re: No more mysql backups?

Yep, anacron just ran the modified mythtv-backup a few minutes ago and I've got a db backup. just need to remove the one in daily and I should be good to go. I'm wondering how many others this has happened to. I didn't notice it not working for a few months as I just stumbled across it. Since I do a...

Re: No more mysql backups?

I don't have a /etc/default/mythtv-backend file either. Did I ever? Don't know. Don't know why that script even checks for it. Aren't all cron jobs run as root? I think I'll just take all that out of the script and see what happens.

(solved) No more mysql backups?

Not sure when this happened, but was looking at the db backup dir and noticed the last one was 4 months old. I used to get weekly backups iirc. Not sure what happened. Don't remember when I upgraded to mythtv V30. Checked backend setup and disable backups isn't checked so don't know what's going on....

Re: Suggested Media Providers

This is exactly why I've never used anything but free OTA tv. All you need is a tuner card and good antenna. There is no other cost unless you want SD guide service for $25 a years. Most people would probably be happy with the free OTA guide data. Depending on your location. you can get up to over 1...

Re: Freeview HD recordings failing

Assuming you receive these channels ota with an antenna, you may just be getting a weak signal at myth box, especially if you have spliters in the cabling. If you split the signal to more than a couple of receivers, you may need an amplifier and/or a better antenna. I have a very good antenna, but s...
