Re: [Solved] IR Remote Keys Repeat Many Times Starting with Kernel 5.8.0-49

I just upgraded my FE's to 21.04 and all works fine with the 5.11.0-17 kernel. Another clean upgrade with no problems - well done Ubuntu :D

Re: Are storage directories used or the old Video Settings - Directory For Fanart...?

I think they are the old legacy MythVideo settings that you could set on each frontend. The recommendation is to not use those and instead setup the various storage groups on the master BE. All FE's local or remote can then access their content without having to mess with shared folders using NFS or...

Re: IR Remote Keys Repeat Many Times Starting with Kernel 5.8.0-49

Yeah my parents box suddenly started to behave oddly with each key press sending 100's of key presses causing the box to momentarily lock up making it unusable. I just reinstalled the previous working kernel (5.8.0-48-generic) and adjusted grub to use that for now until they sort it out. You can ins...

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.
