Re: Setting up a MythTV client @ a remote location

Assuming you've got enough bandwidth to actually stream the content. You need access to the MySQL server and the backend, and the IP addresses must match on both sides of the link.

Re: DVB-C on FreeBSD ?

FreeBSD is quite lacking in tuner card drivers. If the HDHR is out of the question, that basically just leaves USB tuners with Linux drivers interpreted through webcamd.

Re: Remote Access to mysql mythtv user

It looks like it's doing reverse lookup on your system name, and then not matching any credentials against that name instead of the IP.

Re: Noob question xbmc front end can't connect to backend

Is it possible whatever script/application you are using to manage your network is removing the address from the interface when it wakes back up?

Re: Noob question xbmc front end can't connect to backend

Is the machine using a wireless network? Is that the address you have specified for MythTV to be connected to from in mythtv-setup?

The tuner doesn't do 1080i, the tuner just does a data stream. Whatever the broadcaster transmits, the tuner receives and feeds to the computer. All digital tuners are identical in this regard.

Re: External Tuners

HD video streams are going to be ~750Mbps, well outside the range of USB2.0. Fortunately, digital tuners don't give us a video stream, but just a compressed data stream at ~15Mbps. Some devices don't like having to share a hub with other devices, but a single tuner on a hub will be no issue. Also no...

Re: HEVC (H.265) playback

As mentioned, we get it from FFmpeg, which apparently added support roughly a year ago. It may "just work" in master, but other than for testing, there's really not a lot of value at current. JYA has done the last several syncs, so he would probably be best suited to answer.

Re: HEVC (H.265) playback

H.265 supports great video quality w/ 1/2 the file size Combined with CPU-days worth of compression that cost more in electricity than the hard drive space it replaces. The same could previously be said for H.264 versus MPEG2 DVDs and recordings, before floods caused hard disk prices to stagnate fo...

Re: HEVC (H.265) playback

We get codec support from ffmpeg, so if ffmpeg has support in their mainline branch (seems they added it about a year ago), we will probably pick up some level of support automatically when we sync. As it stands, no commercial content will come in H265, nor will any consumer device produce it. The o...

Re: Remote frontend can't access backend MySQL

forget the ipv6 thing. That was another problem. Every time you upgrade mythtv, mythtv.cnf gets overwritten and the bind address will be commented out. Just comment out the bind-address in my.cnf and mythtv.cnf and try that. That is supposed to open up all ports to both ipv4 and ipv6 addresses. And...

Re: Mythfrontend Playback FFmpeg hangs

I'd still like to know whether I could use an external player for live TV No. and why the ffplay command is much better than the internal player although it seems like it uses this. Considering they're both using the same decoding library, the difference has to be in how the decoded video is being ...

Re: Duplicate Check method enhancement....

I'll be honest, in this particular example, without other information like subtitle or program ID, I wouldn't consider that close enough to be a duplicate.

Re: Remote frontend can't access backend MySQL

In mythtv-setup, you define the address of the master backend. The first time you run mythtv-setup or mythfrontend, it lets you specify the address of the database, and subsequently stores that in config.xml. It sounds like you have a bad value in your config.xml.
