Re: The future of MythTV

To stop the cycle, pull up a terminal, type killall mythfrontend.real and then killall mythfrontend. You will have to do this multiple times as fast as you can to get it to stop, but it can be done. You can also do this via ssh if you have another connected machine.

wesnewell that's a different bug to the one heyted and I saw.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1926030
if it's a kernel problem, just install a different kernel. it easy to do. Right now I'm running 5.4.0-74 on one FE and 5.10.0-1023 on another without problems.

Re: ir-keytable and multiple key presses

There are a lot of old screwed up kernels out there. the actual problem is not ir-keytable, but event problems. They were inrtoduced in the 5.4.x and 5.8.x kernels in sept 2020 and stayed there until early 2021 in all kernels. You can go over this here. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linu...

Re: mythtv-setup freezes upon launching

Don't know if it matters, but I always install mysql server before installing mythtv. Is mysql installed and active?

Re: The future of MythTV

I'm a cheap sob so I've never in my 74 years ever had any form of pay tv. All I ever used was broadcast tv and have never seen a need for anything else. Last channel scan I did got me 85 channels where I am with a decent antenna. I have mythmusic, videos, and images, but 95% of my usage is for recor...

I've got 5 frontends and they all use the same settings, which are pretty much the default ones for NVDEC Normal. All systems are xubuntu 20.04 LTS consisting of system in listed in sig line.

Re: Replacement MCE Remote

Get a JP1 remote, a programing cable, and program whatever you it it to do. This might help.

Re: [Solved] IR Remote Keys Repeat Many Times Starting with Kernel 5.8.0-49

Check for kernels 5.10.0-xxxx available for your distro. Earlier ones are screwed up, but any after 5.10.0-1023 should be ok. At least this one works fine and they are available for 20.04LTS. Any kernel with a compile date from 09-2020 to 03-2021 has the potential of being screwed up depending on th...

Re: Are storage directories used or the old Video Settings - Directory For Fanart...?

I have those same settings in mine, but if I look at the actual directories, they aren't their. Not even /.mythtv/Video. How they got in the settings I have no idea.

Never ran the 5.8.0 kernel. Suggest you got to this and see if it fixes the problem. wes@mythfe0:~$ ir-keytable -V IR keytable control version 1.18.0 wes@mythfe0:~$ uname -a Linux mythfe0 5.10.0-1023-oem #24-Ubuntu SMP Thu Apr 15 13:46:37 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux wes@mythfe0:~$ lsb_re...

Re: time for a new backend / daily driver

If you're getting a new MB, I highly suggest you get one with M.2 NVME slot and nvme drive, NVME drives are many times faster than sata ssd drives.
