Re: LinuxMint18 Make Install Errors

My guess would be you are haven't got QtScript or it's development counterpart installed. Don't now about Mint but they will be probably be called something like qtscript5 and qtscript5-dev.

I think the answer is to swap the wife or get her retrained to use other keys :twisted: :roll: If all else fails you may be able to achieve what you want by adding some <triggerevent> to your theme in the definition for <guidegrid> No idea if it will work but they would look something like this <tri...

Re: Debugging, log keyboard entries seen by frontend?

There is no extra debugging you can enable for that. The only thing you can do is add extra logging in appropriate places and recompile which may not be something you want to do. It's possible what has happened is your remote now has in kernel support that makes remotes look and act like small keybo...

Maybe you have that recording rule using a different Storage Group and that storage group hasn't been set up properly so is trying to record to / ?

Re: Video Playback At Double Speed, VLC Corrects the Problem

You win this months prize for the strangest problem reported :lol: Do you see any differences in the frontend log when it works and when it doesn't? I have a suspicion it could be audio related since I have a vague recollection of others having a similar problem with the video playing back to quick ...

Re: Transcoding in webfrontend

I believe it is supposed to support on the fly HLS transcoding but when I tried it recently it didn't work :( The developer who was working on it is AWOL and we are not sure if it got broken by recent changes or just never worked. It could just be it needs some special voodoo to set up that I'm miss...

Re: hvr-1265 ntsc sound problem

I'm not familiar with this card how does the analog tuner present itself. Does it show up as a standard V4l2 device? See if it shows up if you run v4l2-ctl --all If it does then there are lots of V4l2 tools to query and set the various parameters to see if the card is working correctly. I've used th...

Looks like you will have to be the guinea pig and let us know how you get on ;) It's good to see they are coming down in price they was very expensive when they first came out. Not sure how many clients actually support SAT>IP properly though. Personally I went with a couple of VBoxs since they gave...

Re: Upgraded Ubuntu to 16.04 while MythTV was 0.27 - How to get 0.28 started?

Yes both mythbackend and mythtv-setup will check the DB version when starting and will update it automatically. IIRC mythfrontend will just complain and shut down it finds an old DB version unless an update is taking place in which case it will wait a while for the update to complete. Sometimes you ...

Re: Mytharchive DVD menu font settings

Have a look in /usr/share/mythtv/mytharchive/themes/Compact/theme.xml

You should be able to change the font sizes and/or the position and size of the text boxes

Re: Record the same show every day at same time in 0.29?

Just tried again, this time adding 5min pre and post roll, and it works as expected for me :? I've not tried to record anything but the 'Upcoming Recording" screen shows everything to be correct. Like I said earlier I am using current master (v30.0pre) and you are on 29 so it could be a version thin...

Re: Backend Wiil Not Start

These sort of problems often boil down to what user is trying to start the backend. The default behaviour is to use the config.xml found in the users home directory ~/.mythtv/config.xml. When you start mythbackend from the command line you should see at the start a line like Using configuration dire...

Re: Mapping metadata lookup to specific directories

Don't think there is at the moment. I know if you put a .mxml or .nfo file with the same name as the video in the directory it will use the metadata out of that rather than doing a lookup which will at least prevent the lookup and will allow you to use whatever metadata you want. It does mean having...

Re: Video issues after reinstall

The video preview was removed a long time ago you just get a static preview now.

Kind of sounds like a resource leak somewhere. I'd try different playback profiles with and without VDPAU just to eliminate problems with the nvidia drivers.

Re: Record the same show every day at same time in 0.29?

I just did a a test and it seems to work fine for me, I'm on current master though. 1. Find the program you want to record daily. 2. Chose 'Record all showings' 3. In the filter tick 'This Channel' and 'This Time' 4. Select 'Don't Match Duplicates' (not sure if this is needed but that's what I selec...
