Re: No OSD

I should have fiddled before I posted :)

One of the entries in

Code: Select all

aplay -L
was:

Code: Select all

hw:CARD=ALSA,DEV=1
    bcm2835 ALSA, bcm2835 IEC958/HDMI
    Direct hardware device without any conversions
So I chose that and after using

Code: Select all

alsamixer
to put the volume up to full, that now works well.

Re: No OSD

Reinstallation did the trick, thanks. I didn't even need to do the GLES link. I can't get the IEC958 audio to show up in setup/audio, but I'll work on that another time. Like in https://forum.mythtv.org/viewtopic.php?t=582 I had to choose a different audio device, but then ALSA:default vanished and ...

Re: No OSD

I removed that package as I did have it installed, then ran: pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cd /usr/share/mythtv/lib/ pi@raspberrypi:/usr/share/mythtv/lib $ sudo ln -s /opt/vc/lib/libbrcmEGL.so libGLESv2.so pi@raspberrypi:/usr/share/mythtv/lib $ ls -l total 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 Feb 8 18:40 libEGL.so.1 ->...

Re: No OSD

Under Setup > Appearance > Theme / Screen Settings, Paint engine was set to Qt. Setting it to Auto hasn't made any difference; those are the only two options for that setting.

Re: No OSD

G1 and G2 seem to add the vc4-kms-v3d and vc4-fkms-v3d overlays in config.txt. The first of those has this to say in the README: "Running startx or booting to GUI while this overlay is in use will cause interesting lockups." Something else got messed up; taking those out of config.txt (ie. returning...

Re: No OSD

I'm on Raspbian 2017-11-29, confusingly from the http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/images/raspbian-2017-12-01/ folder. The options I have for GL in raspi-config are: G1 GL (Full KMS) OpenGL desktop driver with full KMS G2 GL (Fake KMS) OpenGL desktop driver with fake KMS G3 Legacy Original n...

Re: No OSD

I did install from mythtv-light. I did not knowingly activate "Experimental OpenGL" - where might I check this? Nothing else installed, this was a fresh Raspbian Stretch install and then your packages. pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cat /etc/debian_version 9.3 pi@raspberrypi:~ $ grep myth /etc/apt/sources.list ...

Re: No OSD

I have GPU memory set to 320, and am running MythTV 29. The audio change I will try tonight, as posted by you on another thread: For audio over HDMI, either of the following will work 1. Use raspi-config to force audio over HDMI and in MythTV frontend audio setup select ALSA default. 2. In front end...

No OSD

I'm setting up an Raspberry Pi 3 as a new frontend using Raspbian stretch and MythTV Light (excellent work, thanks for those packages!). I bought an MPG2 license key (source is UK Freesat) and playback is fine for SD shows. There are some hints in other threads about options that might improve playb...

Re: MythTV could not connect to the database

Is mysql running? Try "service mysql start" from a terminal and then try the backend setup again.
