Re: VBox TV Gateway, 4144, Software Version XTI_VT.2.66.5.2, too old?

The Leanfront should be easy to set up since it only needs access to the Services API. So you just need to tell it the IP address of the master backend. The mythfrontend port is a little more difficult but no more difficult than any other remote frontend. You need to set up mysql/mariadb to allow us...

Re: Screwed up FrontEnd GUI config

Have you tried something like this mythfrontend --geometry 800x600+20+20 The first two numbers are the window x and y position and the last two numbers are the window offset from the upper left corner of the screen. or if you know the correct settings you can override them using -O OR --override-set...

Re: mythtranscode error 139

I'm non the wiser. Is the original file a NUV file? What are you trying to do - remove commercials or re-transcode to another format? What is the command you are trying to run?

Re: VBox TV Gateway, 4144, Software Version XTI_VT.2.66.5.2, too old?

Unfortunately my contact at VBox is no longer working with them, the email just bounced back. I tried to contact support and all I got was Amir no longer works with them and that they don't have any previous report of the issue. They said there was a beta version of the firmware so maybe you need to...

Re: VBox TV Gateway, 4144, Software Version XTI_VT.2.66.5.2, too old?

Has anyone tried to run the Android port of mythfrontend or the leanfront frontend on these boxes yet? Well, i can try it at weekend or later (testing device with terrestrial hd and uptime stability). Should i get something via android tv play store and setup somehow? Neither are available from the...

Yes it's been around longer that I thought, the first I heard about it was in this thread :roll: All 3 of my Vboxs are older than what you have, they must be the first generation and you have the second and third? I use the DVB-t2 (3342) box the most and it can go months and months without any probl...

Re: mythtranscode error 139

The 139 error code is clearly a red herring - mythtranscode is crashing with a segfault.. The difference between using the --mpeg2 switch and not is because it uses different parts of the code, it does lossless cutting using a cutlist and the other re-transcodes the file. mythtranscode uses it's own...

Re: VBox TV Gateway, 4144, Software Version XTI_VT.2.66.5.2, too old?

These boxes are fairly new so there might still be a few bugs to iron out. I have the older boxes and they are rock solid never have a problem with them, even more solid than the HDHomeRun that I also have and does lock up from time to time :evil: . I would try to contact them to let them know you a...

Re: mythtranscode error 139

If that 139 is a proper exit code then it looks like an 'Invalid Time' error code :- https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/blob/master/mythtv/libs/libmythbase/exitcodes.h#L22 The only reference I can see in the code is in connect_to_master() and it refers to the time between the master backend and a slav...

Re: Problems deleteing records for files missing ~ find_orphans.py v31

Yes that version is to old to have the fix.

For now you could just get the updated dt.py file from
https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/blob/f ... lity/dt.py
and replace the old version with the new one.

Re: Problems deleteing records for files missing ~ find_orphans.py v31

The find_orphans.py script uses the MythTV python bindings that are installed alongside the rest of MythTV. If Bill is correct then the file that is broken is dt.py that you will find wherever your distro installs the python bindings. For me it's located here :- /usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-package...

Re: xmltv upgrade for Sched Dir fails to provide grabber

Try running the tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite command directly to see what happens. My guess is you are missing some dependency and it's failing to run. Try something like tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite --description or to see a full list of parameters you can try tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite --help Is that the on...
