Re: mythtv-setup freezes upon launching

To get more useful backtraces it helps if it's not already installed to install the mythtv-dbg package that contains the debug symbols. sudo apt install mythtv-dgb Then in a console run mythtv-setup.real under gdb. $ gdb mythtv-setup.real (gdb) run If you want to run mythtv-setup.real with extra par...

Re: mythtv-setup freezes upon launching

In order to get MythTV packaged for debian there was some default locations for things like config files, theme fonts and storage groups that had to be changed in order to comply with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) that debian insists on. That's why there are hacks like putting the config.x...

Re: mythtv-setup freezes upon launching

I think you are going to have run mythtv-setup.real under gdb and when it freezes press Ctrl-C and get a backtrace. Maybe that will give us a clue why it's freezing. We can give you more detailed instructions if you have never used gdb.

Re: mythtv-setup freezes upon launching

For testing purposes lets get you using the mythcenter-wide theme just to rule out any theme issues. We know that one works since it's a system installed theme and is consider the default theme. Go to the Theme Chooser and you should see one called MythCenter-wide 1.7 or similar (I'm assuming your T...

Re: mythtv-setup freezes upon launching

It's always best to install themes using the Theme Chooser if they are available in there then you know you have a compatible and up to date version for your MythTV version.

This problem get stranger by the minute. Hard to understand how those actions would cause mythtv-setup to freeze :?

Re: mythtv-setup freezes upon launching

When you run mythtv-setup or the mythfrontend locally it will always try to use opengl for the renderer. When you run over ssh it will always fall back to the Qt renderer which probably explains why you get different behaviour depending how it is run. The Qt renderer is only kept as a last resort fa...

Re: Sticky keys; database location.

Having used Mythtv for 12 years I feel embarrassed asking these simple questions but this is a friendly place! Yes but we draw the line at someone still using 0.27 :roll: That should be a criminal offence :lol: 1. I have a 'live' 0.27 system and I'm trying out v31. How do I turn on 'sticky keys'? I...

The future of MythTV

We can see from the number of Scheduled Direct users and the Smolt data that MythTV is losing users at an ever increasing rate. We think one reason for this is it's getting harder and harder to record stuff because more services are becoming encrypted requiring proprietary boxes to view and record c...

Re: New "Standby" Message

There is no new "feature" added that I know of that would do that :? It kind of sounds like the idle timer has kicked in and what you are seeing is the standby screen but that would show after a period of inactivity (no key presses or remote movement or video playing). That's been there a long time ...

Re: Myth 0.31 fails to restore database - unable to connect to database.

I assume the problem here is the PERL DBD-mysql connector used by the backup/restore scripts currently does not have caching_sha2_password support.

Re: Nvidia Shield v Firestick 4K for full frontend

Some have had some luck with sideloading MLUSB Mounter on to their Shield and using something like Kodi or VLC to play a DVD but the reviews are hit and miss, you have to buy a paid extension and even then it will not play copyright-protected discs. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/shield...
