Re: How to delete all recording rules

It takes all of 1 second to delete a recording rule. I've got about 100 and could delete all of them in about 90 seconds. press d, press arrow down, press enter, repeat.

Re: MythTV Backend on multiple networks

Learned something new. CIDR. A way to mess with old timers heads. Not sure I agree with its use as it seems to limit mask. But who am I to say.

Re: MythTV Backend on multiple networks

afaik, neither of the ip addresses you posted are valid ip addresses. For that reason I don't have a clue what you are trying to accomplish. My suggestion would be to forget the madness and just use one network address, and assign all the clients to the same network and subnet.

Re: How to change time into recording that preview is taken from?

My opinion is I couldn't care less. You could completely do away with it and it wouldn't bother me. Most of the time it's a snapshot of a commercial.

Re: Struggling with LIRC after a 31 install / upgrade

Up to you, but I switched to ir-keytable a few years back and haven't regretted it. Although when I installed 20.04 I had to redo the control files. here's where I figured that out.

Re: Struggling with LIRC after a 31 install / upgrade

Sounds like it's using ir-keytable and the default keymap file for your remote. in terminal type ir- and hit the tab key. If it inserts keytable then that's what's happening and you will have to remove one or the other and fix the control files. man ir-keytable if installed.

Re: Recordings have a hi failure rate

Probably signal interference. Check all antenna connections. Bad tuner, splitters, amps? Could be lots of things between the antenna and disk.

Re: XMLTV grabber for Schedules Direct JSON

The mythtv user is created if you just install the mythtv package from the repo too. That's never been the problem here. Running mythtv-setup as a regular user is the problem. it creates all the SD files in the regular users home instead of the mythtv home so the grabber doesn't work when run by use...

Re: XMLTV grabber for Schedules Direct JSON

I think if we explain why so many people have problems with this it might help. The usual OS setup goes like this. Boot the install CD/DVD/USB stick. When asked for user name, most people will use their name. The system sets them up as the main user. There is no mythtv user at this time. And now the...

Re: [Solved] some remote button presses missing

I should note that all my responses and file examples here were from version that came with xubuntu 18.04lts and possibly earlier. There was a change in 20.04, and these solutions don't work for it. There is another thread that covers that.

Re: v31 configuration guide?

Previous versions handled SD differently. with the xmltv grabbers it doesn't work the same. It installs the control files in the users home that is running the setup. That's a problem. I still run setup as a regular user too, but I know that anything to do with guide data must be copied to the mytht...

Re: Can't get TBS6522 to scan DVBC

V30 was the release for 18.04. You need the V31 ppa to upgrade to v31 if you stay at 18.04. I think a distribution upgrade to 20.04 will automatically upgrade your mythtv to V31 also. You may still need to manually install the V31 ppa to get later updates for it.
