Re: seeking/editing in mythfrontend

After transcoding, I use ffprobe to extract the i-frame data, and update mythconverg's recordedseek and markup tables from that. See https://git.sdf.org/nb0yjxtr/ffmpeg-mythtv/src/branch/master/ffmpeg-myth.scm#L515 That would be an important point to put on the issue. We wouldn't want a dev spend d...

You can password protect some or all the Service API urls but not sure if that is what you are looking for.

Re: seeking/editing in mythfrontend

MythTV has never created or used mkv files for recordings so I'm with blm-ubunet on this one if it ever did work it was a fluke and not by design :? :roll:

Also are you sure ffprobe is creating the seek tables that doesn't sound possible :?:

Re: HD Playback problem with YLE-channels only

Great at least we know where the problem is now :) Didn't know that option was only visible in debug builds. I'd drop an email to the developers list maybe someone knows why :idea: :?:

Radio stream database has been updated

I've just done a long over due update of the radio stream database used by MythMusic . The database update has been semi-automated so will be updated more frequently from now on (at least 2 or 3 times a week). Vital statistics :- Total Number of Streams : 30419 Number of Broadcasters : 706 Number o...

Re: HD Playback problem with YLE-channels only

If it is our TS demuxer one possible workaround is to enable 'Use FFmpeg's original MPEG-TS muxer' (Setup->Video->Playback->General Playback)

Although the setting help text does say 'Things will be broken' so :roll: Still be interesting to see if it does improve anything though.

Re: HD Playback problem with YLE-channels only

The last ffmpeg resync was in July 2020 and should bring us to ffmpeg v4.3.1.

Re: Mythbackend crashes when attempt to run LiveTV [Arch installation with MariaDB errors]

MariaDB 10.4.14 or above should be OK you don't have to downgrade 10.3 anymore.

Re: Scan Storage Function

He did say 'picture viewer' so that isn't relevant. I don't think there is a way to do it programmatically. Probably not to difficult to add something to mythutil like the --scanvideos and --scanmusic options. Nice little project for a beginner :)

Re: tuner card device file order control with udev

If your linux module driver for your cards supports the 'adapter_nr' parameter you can tell it to use a specific number for each adapter when it boots up. So if you pass 1,2,3,4 for the 'adapter_nr' parameter for one card it will always have /dev/dvb/adapter1 to /dev/dvb/adapter4. And for the other ...

Re: watching live TV for long periods: can I?

If it consistently stops playing say after 2 hours then it is probably exiting LiveTV after it's been idle for a while. There is a setting to control that under the TV Settings -> Playback -> General Playback -> Live TV idle timout (mins). Try setting it to a larger amount or set it to 0 to disable ...

Re: [Solved] tmdb3 crashes

libmyth-python is only a recommended package for mythtv-backend so wont be installed by default.

libmyth-python is a dependency of the mythtv-frontend package so will always be installed if the frontend is installed.

A UK station for another example is "Wonderful Radio London 266", What a cool find that's a real blast from the past :lol: .
