Pi 4-4GB is truly a capable host for the backend.

About ten days ago I asked for help, https://forum.mythtv.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=3699 , and I got it. After running this pi-4 4GB for the last week, I can say that this piece of hardware is indeed a capable one to host the backend. Originally I ran MythBuntun 14.04 on a lenovo ts140 server. Everyt...

Re: Another question about Pi 4 as backend

The recordings are in MPEG2, I think. When I compiled, I noticed h264 was not supported, because there is no h264 driver installed. I don't use mythtranscode either. My front end is a pi running OpenELEC with myth-dvr point to this pi4. Everything has been fine. I don't feel any different compared t...

Re: Another question about Pi 4 as backend

Mike, I compiled the v31, everything works, including the commercial flagging. Absolutely happy with this cut, very clean. And your script saved me a lot of time, thank you. I think I am going to test this for the next few days then will migrate my v26.4 (2015) over. I think the only table I need to...

Re: Another question about Pi 4 as backend

I got a pi4-4gb board yesterday. Here is what I did: 1. continue the previous installed "mythtv-light", the preview problem wasn't resolved; 2. start from scratch buster-2020-02-13 desktop version, git clone https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv.git and git clone https://github.com/MythTV/mythweb.git, ch...

Re: Another question about Pi 4 as backend

Sorry, it didn't work. I know it is permission related. I've included www-data in the mythtv group and made sure the mythweb/data belongs to www-data:www-data. And "data" allows group writing. The png files are supposed to be inside of the recordings directory along with the ts files. ts files are f...

Re: Another question about Pi 4 as backend

I use the mythweb a lot. I notice the images at the leftmost column after getting into "Recorded Programs" are not shown. They used to be found under the "recordings" location in other releases (v27, v28.x, v29.x and v30 with ubuntu 18.04). What did I miss? I've set the ownership of mythweb/data as ...

Re: Another question about Pi 4 as backend

Mike, thanks for your insights! All major functionality appears to be working fine, except the commercial flagging mechanism. I am running Mythtv-Light v30 off pi3-b. The cpu usage appears to be modest. I am recording programs into a 128gb usb flash drive. I don't feel any issue at the moment. The T...

Re: Another question about Pi 4 as backend

Thank you! I have two questions: 1. Is the commercial flagging problem also found in other hardware or just pi-related? I know it is more a software issue. Just want to make sure how much the pi differs from the legacy lineup; 2. Pi4 is not the optimal solution if many TB of storage is planned to us...

Another question about Pi 4 as backend

I know this question might have been asked many times. I think the answer might be more updated as Pi 4 has been around long enough. How capable is for Pi 4 4GB board to be the backend server hardware? Any difficulties to record two and replay two at the same time? I am currently using the Lenovo TS...
