Re: mythtv-setup freezes upon launching

Just for reference. Peter added the StartupScreenDelay at my request because he changed something that was causing the setup screen to always be shown when the FE started. It was driving me and my users nuts because we found it so irritating. Each time the FE started up there would be a flash of the...

Re: The future of MythTV

I've been running MythTV for years on NUC back- and front-ends. One tiny beef is when something goes wrong on the frontend, the system cycles into a black hole: you get a screen that the frontend can't connect to the backend which is difficult to dismiss. For example, when the screwup is the networ...

Re: ir-keytable and multiple key presses

Which is what I suggested in the post that heyted referenced above. https://forum.mythtv.org/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=4426#p21770 It's not clear from the OP if he is seeing 100's of extra key presses or just 1 or 2 extra ones. If it's 100's then yes the answer is try a different kernel as suggested in t...

Re: The future of MythTV

Hi jfabernathy, What version of MythTV do you use? Mainly want to know if master is the same. Mark Kendell was doing a lot of work to the video output some of it is in v31 but there are also a lot of changes to master what will be v32. Unfortunately Mark has vanished without trace we've tried emaili...

Re: ir-keytable and multiple key presses

It's pretty obvious if it is that kernel bug since the key repeats many 100's of times causing each key press to lock up the frontend. On the other had if for example you press the ESCAPE key and rather than going back one screen you go back 2 or 3 screens or pressing UP/DOWN jumps more than one ite...

Re: mythtv-31.0_p20210606 mythbackend segfault

Enable a debug build in Gentoo of the MythTV package and then run mythfrontend under gdb to get a backtrace of the crash and post it here.

There are some Gentoo specific instructions on the wiki (don't know if they are up to date though)

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 :?
