Starting the backend didn't work. mythbackend.log has not been re-created. $ sudo service mythtv-backend start Job for mythtv-backend.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status mythtv-backend.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details. $ systemctl status ...

Re: Installation on Debian 9.5 "Stretch"

Channel scan completed with a few hundred unencrypted channels to watch. Next issue is that mythbackend doesn't start: ~$ sudo service mythtv-backend status ● mythtv-backend.service - MythTV Backend Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/mythtv-backend.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: ...

Re: Installation on Debian 9.5 "Stretch"

D'oh! For days I didn't notice that "Scan Type" shows a little right-arrow that leads to a mask to input all those parameters that need to be parsed. At this moment, I think that the firmware package is not necessary for my PCTV Sat because I could already watch TV through VLC before installing it. ...

Re: Installation on Debian 9.5 "Stretch"

Installing firmware-linux didn't help in setting up my capture card. And now that I think of it, that was probably the wrong path since watching TV works in VLC with this card. It still does, but lacks MythTV's convenience for you have to enter a station's frequency, orientation and symbol rate to c...

Re: Installation on Debian 9.5 "Stretch"

I'm sorry that I didn't mention the hardware in question. It's a Pinnacle PCTV Sat (DVB-S, not DVB-S2) card. Taken from dmesg: $ sudo dmesg | grep -i -B 10 -A 10 -e bt878 -e dvb -e frontend -e conexant [ 5.424459] shpchp: Standard Hot Plug PCI Controller Driver version: 0.4 [ 5.426279] bttv: Bt8xx c...

Re: Installation on Debian 9.5 "Stretch"

Thank you. The membership group issue had somehow already dawned on me and is fixed. Now, with knowledge of the correct password, mythtv-setup even connects to the database. Next challenge: after some setting up the parameters in mythtv-setup, I came across the channel scan. It doesn't work: "Error ...

Re: Installation on Debian 9.5 "Stretch"

I can confirm now that with libcec-dev instead of libcec4-dev and with default-libmysqlclient-dev instead of libmysqlclient-dev , compilation succeeds without errors. 1) Maybe changing https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Build_from_Source#Installing_Build_Dependencies_without_Ansible to reflect this would b...

Re: Installation on Debian 9.5 "Stretch"

They are deliberately changed to those packages libmysqlclient-dev is used for MythTV versions 0.28 and 29.0 instead of default-libmysqlclient-dev , which is used for older MythTV versions. libcec4-dev is used for debian stretch instead of libcec-dev , which is used for older debian versions. I pres...

Installation on Debian 9.5 "Stretch"

Hi forum, in an attempt to install MythTV 29 on Debian 9.5 "Stretch", I came across https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Installing_MythTV_on_Debian , which refers to https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Build_from_Source#Installing_Build_Dependencies_without_Ansible to resolve dependencies. At the moment, I'm trying...
