Re: Scan for new music not working

The --version and --help options just print stuff out and exit early that's why they work. Most other mythutil options create a MythContext and it is that that is failing to initialise way before the scan starts. It must be failing early since it's not producing any log output which makes it difficu...

Re: Mythwelcome cannot shut down computer

How it used to work is you would set mythshutdown --check as the "Pre Shutdown check-command". It does checks like see if the BE is busy recording, mythtranscode is running a job, mythfilldatbase is running, mythcomflag is running, we are about to start recording, shutdown has been locked (ie mythsh...

Re: Scan for new music not working

OK not for the first time it looks like I misremembered how the scan works. The frontend sends the SCAN_MUSIC command to the backend and the backend then runs mythutil --scanmusic to do the actual scan. For some reason I thought mythutil asked the BE to do the scan :oops: So can you get a similar lo...

Re: Mythwelcome cannot shut down computer

I would ignore that URL Bill gave you I think what you are seeing is the BE caches the settings so what you get back is the old cached value. The status returned by mythshutdown is always correct since it read/writes the value direct from the database.

mythutil --verbose help
will show you the logging options available. mythutil --scanmusic just tells the backend to do the scan so the backend log will probably tell you more. You do need to run mythutil --scanmusic on the same machine the BE is on.

Re: Audio delay with hdmi at start of playback

You can try increasing the log verbosity mythfrontend --verbose help will show you the options available. Adding audio or audio:debug seem like the most obvious options to try. Don't really know what to suggest you look for though. You could try other audio options in the audio setup to see if anyth...

Re: Mythwelcome cannot shut down computer

mythshutdown --check will also tell you the current status of the lock. If you see 'Shutdown is locked Not OK to shutdown' then keep calling mythshutdown --unlock until you see 'OK to shutdown'. You may see other things blocking shutdown like mythfilldatabase is running or mythcommflag is running o...

Re: Android app on F-Droid

For legal reasons the founding developers of the MythTV project insisted we never supplied actual binary builds but just supplied the source code which others can use to make there own builds. Whether the original reasons for that decision still apply I don't know it's probably something the existin...

Re: Scan for new music not working

MythTV 0.28 is just too old to care about, that's like from April 2016 I think :roll: :twisted: Just guessing without further information but these checks spring to mind. The music scanning is done by the master backend was that running and accepting connections when you tried to run the scan? Do ot...

Re: How many MythTV users are there?

The smolt data submissions are optional so only show a small percentage of users. There main purpose is to give the developers an idea of the number of users using a particular version or what distro's are being used, what type of capture devices are being used etc. Upstream Smolt development has be...

Re: Database Optimize/Backup Order

I would do the backup first just in case something should go wrong with optimize_mythdb like it being interrupted with a power cut potentially corrupting the db. At least then you have a clean backup to fall back to.

Re: Setup MythTV with Sat>IP

A comment in the source code says the format should be like this // #EXTINF:0,2 - France 2 <-- duration,channum - channame So try something like this for the example channel in the error message where 123 is the channel number you want to use for this channel.
