Messing with the DB is not recommended but if you must ;)

Re: Attempted upgrade from .28 to .29 - failed - trying to go back to .28, frontend cant connect to db

Unless your hostname has changed there should be no need to change <LocalHostName>my-unique-identifier-goes-here</LocalHostName> since using the hostname is the default. It is important it is using the correct value since MythTV uses this value to find the correct settings in the database for this m...

Try connecting to mysql on the command line first. There has been lots of threads telling you how like this one https://forum.mythtv.org/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=3032&p=14689#p14683 Your log says it's trying to connect to mysql on 192.168.1.151 is that correct?

Re: Can't play videos using VLC

No reason why you can't do that.

It would still be nice to figure out why the internal player doesn't work properly. What is the source of the video files? Does vlc figure out how to play the files without having to configure something? What about mythffplay or ffplay does that work?

Re: Can't play videos using VLC

I'm not aware of any feature to rotate the image in the internal player. Looks like only %d and %s are available in the external command substitution. https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/blob/master/mythtv/programs/mythfrontend/videoplayercommand.cpp#L26 Wouldn't be too difficult to add say %f to pass ...

Re: Can't play videos using VLC

VLC doesn't have support for the myth:// urls used so can't play the files over the MythTV protocol. It is possible to write a plugin for VLC to support it, I do have one that I used to test playback using a libVLC but the switch to VLC 3.0 broke a few things and haven't bothered to fix it other tha...

Re: Upgrade 29 -> 30 Breaks HDHomerun

If you already have the hdhomerun library then your current packages must not have been compiled with hdhomerun support compiled in which makes more sense than just the dependency is missing now that I think about it. You should be able to tell if your version has hdhomerun support by running mythba...

Re: Upgrade 29 -> 30 Breaks HDHomerun

MythTV used to use it's own copy of the HDHomerun library but now uses the system installed one which the Fedora packages was missing. It has since been updated to include it so updating should fix it or just install the HDHomerun library will also probably work.

No sorry I can't find it either I think I'm confusing your issue with another one affecting MythBrowser.

Re: Can I replace the Recording Player?

No you can't replace the player used for recordings.

You don't say what version you are using? There is on going work to improve the internal player some changes have make it into 30.0 but most work is now being done in what will be 31.0

Re: Cannot change the path for the DVD in MythArchive

Yeah I see the problem the filter used to populate the file list is missing QDir::Files and QDir::System. We'll have to clout the dev who converted the settings page to the new system with a wet fish :)

It'll be fixed shortly.

Re: mythbackend v30 segmentation fault

There was a bug introduced by a recent commit that caused the guide grid to cause a segfault. It was fixed a few days later. You just need to update to current master to get the fix and all will be well again.

Assuming she is using the Delete key binding, in my experience most users don't even know it exists, she could be using the menu to delete them :?:

Re: How to stop a frontend from deleting a recorded program.

There is the setting Tv Settings -> General -> General (Auto-Expire) -> Time to retain deleted recordings (days) You can set that to -1 or a suitable large value so if she does delete recordings you will at least be able to undelete them from the Deleted recordings group. Either that or get a big st...
