Re: Setting up a Linux MythTV server and web clients

If I've understood what you want correctly then I don't see why it couldn't be done. You would need a server to run mythbackend to do the recordings and store them. It would also run the plex server that your Roku's will connect to to play stuff. You could also have the frontend on there to administ...

Re: Recent MythNetVision Information?

Unfortunately the maintainer of MythNetVision seems to have abandoned it so it is slowly bit-rotting so parts of it are now failing. It will still make it into v30 due shortly but I wouldn't be surprised if it was removed for the next release unless someone takes the time to fix it. Volunteers alway...

Re: mythfilldatabase grabber failure

That message doesn't necessarily mean there is a problem, you will get it if you run mythfilldatabase twice in quick succession because the second time it is run there is no new data to insert into the database.

Re: Mythtv v 0.29.1 recorder offline, tuner has an error

The mythbackend.log is what you want. Depends on how you start the BE if it is created and where. I would start looking in /var/log/mythtv/

You can always just stop the BE and run it in a console to see the log output. You may have to start it as user mythtv to get it to work though.

Re: Can't Connection to DB (mythtv not linking to libQt5Sql)

Well at least that is one puzzle solved :) Don't know why you are getting the 'Driver not loaded' errors that would appear to be key and could be pointing to a Qt installation problem. Doesn't look like a permissions problem but wont do any harm to check the database is there and you can access it f...

Re: Can't Connection to DB (mythtv not linking to libQt5Sql)

When i check the libraries used for the mythtv executables, only sqlite appears. I'd expect to see libQt5Sql. mythtv@myth ~ % ldd =mythtv-setup.real|grep sql libsqlite3 => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libsqlite3 (0x00007f1563fe2000) mythtv@myth ~ % ldd =mythfrontend.real|grep sql libsqlite3 => /usr/li...

Re: Lossless_cut

We should definitely try to get your work at least documented so others can take a look. I really think a lot of things like these should be incorporated into MythTV itself since it's something that a lot of people could use but it is a lot of work to maintain which I think puts a lot of people of. ...

Re: Error in trying to build MythTV v 0.29 in Debian 9.6

Looks like '+' should be OK so that isn't it.

Something is mangling the version and is adding a ':' character that is the real problem.

Re: Error in trying to build MythTV v 0.29 in Debian 9.6

I'm no debian expert so take this with a pinch of salt :) I know the debian packaging have recently been updated so Launchpad will build and publish them so something may have got broken in the process. This commit looks like it could be the problem one https://github.com/MythTV/packaging/commit/ef0...

Did you try pressing PAGEUP/PAGEDOWN? They are usually set to increment/decrement in larger amounts.

Re: Christmas theme 2018

I've just updated my parents box which is on Ubuntu 18.04.1 and MythTV master and it updated without any problems so could just be a v29 problem. Looking at one of my frontend it looks like you should have a themes.zip file in ~/.mythtv/tmp/ that was modified today. You should also have a bunch of d...

Re: My setup broke, not sure what happened

Is the backend running? You can check by running in a terminal

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl status mythtv-backend
Is there any errors in the log?

Code: Select all

journalctl -u mythtv-backend --since today

Christmas theme 2018

The 2019 version of the MythCenterXMAS-wide theme is now available in the theme chooser as version 1.8 for 29.0 and 30.0-pre (master). This version contains all new background images and despite global warming it's still snowing :) I noticed a bug in the theme updater in that it never removes old fi...
