Re: [Solved] Computer does not turn on after setting alarm with rtcwake (Ubuntu 18.04)

I am using a distro named Linhes which is based on arch. I've experimented and found for me the best kernel option so far is hpet=disable without the bit about tsc. I actually had to update a header file in /etc/grub.d in my distro as the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT was not applied to the menu item I...

jhmgbl, what fixed it for you? I had a similar issue when I upgraded a kernel version in Arch Linux with motherboard: M5A78L-M LX3 I made a script to use wake-on-lan from a raspberry pi to wake my machine instead. For me: $ cat /sys/devices/system/clocksource/clocksource0/current_clocksource tsc So ...

Re: mythbackend v30 segmentation fault and/or deadlock

I have not experienced any backend issues since my last post. I can only think of a couple things that have changed since the last deadlock. 1) mythbackend is now launching with debug logging. 2) Previously there was a remote kodi frontend on a raspberry pi running on raspbian jessie. It is kodi v17...

Re: Remote Recommendations

I have been extremely happy using a logitech harmony 700 with a streamzap IR receiver. I like its flexibility.
However, in case the streamzap receiver dies, I am curious what people are doing for IR receivers.

Re: HDHOMERUN Quattro tuner (HDHR5-4US)

I have a couple of dual tuner HDHR devices and I have not seen this behavior. Is it possible that you have something else changing channels on another tuner on your hdhomerun when this happens? I have not investigated it, but I observed that if tuner 1 was watching something on mythtv and I tried to...

Re: mythbackend v30 segmentation fault

It happened again this morning within a couple minutes of the machine waking up. When it happens, the backend is still running, but it is unresponsive. Nothing was logged in the backend log for 20 minutes so I restarted it. I now have it starting up with log level set to debug. Is there anything mor...

Re: mythbackend v30 segmentation fault

Tonight the backend become unresponsive again. There was a recording that started at 7pm and I noticed about 30 minutes later that I couldn't access things on mythweb. The backend logs stopped at 19:00 but I can't see anything that is pointing me in any direction as to why the backend become unrespo...

Re: mythbackend v30 segmentation fault

No problem. As of last night I have a newer build of 30, so I will report back if I run into additional issues. I saved the logs from Feb 21 if that would be any use for that particular issue. I may be able to get the logs from Feb 16 as well if that would be useful.

Paulh, I have not had a chance to upgrade get, but I a different backend crash or deadlock or something which was not reflected in the backend log.

mythbackend v30 segmentation fault and/or deadlock

It's only happened once (so far). I upgraded to v30 yesterday and rebooted the machine. I started and stopped playback from livetv and recordings to ensure everything was working. Then I started livetv and opened the guide and the backend segfaulted and restarted, dropping me back to the frontend. E...

Re: Intermittent frontend lockups when using vdpau

FYI, I just updated to mythtv 30 yesterday. Since my original post, I've been using kodi as a frontend and it worked quite well using temporal deinterlacing. The kodi issue I reported earlier turned out to be a refresh rate issue rather than deinterlacer (Once changed from 60 Hz to 59.94 Hz, the pro...

Re: Intermittent frontend lockups when using vdpau

Sorry I haven't done anything yet. I've tested OpenGL and it seems just a bit glitchy. Would the master frontend still be compatible with v29 backend if I attempt to compile it this weekend?

Re: Intermittent frontend lockups when using vdpau

Thanks for the response. I haven't been able to figure out why some machines are experiencing this while others are not. It seems like I ran across a thread with a similar issue that was due to overheating. I'm fairly confident that it is not the issue in my case. However, I'm not sure if the card c...
