Re: Good remotes?

The 6 pin header is a JP1 interface. Using it you can program anything you want to a jp1 capable remote. I use my own custom programming this way, using remotemaster and jp1 cable

Re: Muting audio

Generally, the keyboard only works on the active app running, so switch the active app to the mythtv screen and try it there.

Re: Updated to 18.04 LTS, lirc was a PITA

That's why I removed lirc a few years back and have been using the kernel built in support for ir devices ever since, ir-keytable. Advantages; It's built into the kernel. It works with all apps, because it works like a keyboard. No more lircrc for every app. There's also using one of many mini keybo...

Re: Aspect wrong, whose fault? (channel? epg? myth?)

IFAIK, it gets it from the station. You can setup the tv to whatever it supports, and you can also setup myththv to what ever you want. However it is displayed depends on both the TV setting and mythtv setting. Choose whatever you want.

Re: how to "rescan" on MythTV

With normal tuners, run mythtv-setup, Channel editor, delete affected or all channels and scan again. There may be more things you have to do with hdhr or other standalone devices.

Re: Is recording as .mpg possible?

They are the same files. The only thing that changed was the file extender name from .mpg to .ts. They are still mpeg2 files. Perhaps you are using a different config to display themthan you were with the earlier version.

Re: X Crashes Leaving Live TV

Try setting the display to 1366x768. That's what it took for it to work right on my old Samsung 46". I've since replaced the tv with a 4k.

Re: Newby questions about MythTV capabilities

There's lots of ways to record things in Linux. So you could use any method and store them in the videos folder and view them with mythtv frontend.

Re: MythTV users in US media markets

Go to board index and scroll to bottom of page for count of users by country that are registered board users, I'd suspect there are many more that either aren't registered here or don't even know about this forum
