Re: Remote Frontend

You should just be able to run the frontend under your normal user and will be prompted to re-enter the database credentials. MythTV saves those credentials in a file called ~/.mythtv/config.xml so you could cheat and just move/copy the file from /root/.mythtv/config.xml but make sure you change the...

Re: HDHomeRun with mythtv .30

In previous versions we used our own copy of the HDHomerun library but from 30.0 onwards we use the system installed library. So first thing to look for is the library installed, it will called something like libhdhomerun or libhdhomerun4.

Re: Remote Frontend

Also looks like you are trying to run the frontend as root user which is a bad thing?

Code: Select all

Using configuration directory = /root/.mythtv

I've asked the MythBuntu developers to change that description it's just been overlooked. As Mike said 30 is the current version.

Re: Audio delay with hdmi at start of playback

I don't see a 2 second delay so I would say not normal. Could it be a delay introduced by your TV? Some can take a while to sort themselves out when the HDMI format changes?

Re: Whither MythTV and Streaming?

This wiki page is probably more relevant to what you want to do. https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/User_Manual:Setting_up_HTTP_Live_Streaming_Recorder It all depends on how the stations you want to record make the streams available. Most don't want you to record them so make it as difficult as possible to...

Re: Pluto TV on Myth

Pluto TV looks interesting but at least when looking at the web site here in the UK it is very light on information, no way to even see what programs are on each channel, and very slow to load which doesn't give me much confidence they are here to stay. In any case most people use MythTV to get away...

Re: Attempted upgrade from .28 to .29 - failed - trying to go back to .28, frontend cant connect to db

Unless your hostname has changed there should be no need to change <LocalHostName>my-unique-identifier-goes-here</LocalHostName> since using the hostname is the default. It is important it is using the correct value since MythTV uses this value to find the correct settings in the database for this m...

Try connecting to mysql on the command line first.

Re: Can't play videos using VLC

No reason why you can't do that.

It would still be nice to figure out why the internal player doesn't work properly. What is the source of the video files? Does vlc figure out how to play the files without having to configure something? What about mythffplay or ffplay does that work?

I'm not aware of any feature to rotate the image in the internal player.

Re: Can't play videos using VLC

VLC doesn't have support for the myth:// urls used so can't play the files over the MythTV protocol. It is possible to write a plugin for VLC to support it, I do have one that I used to test playback using a libVLC but the switch to VLC 3.0 broke a few things and haven't bothered to fix it other tha...
