Re: Setting up multiple tuners

Hi, try this: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Channel_Scanning#Creating_the_Capture_Cards and take note of the "Now comes the key point." part near the bottom of that section. That's the only thing I've used and my 3 tuners work OK. You may elect to configure less than the maximum number of tuners so th...

Re: Are storage directories used or the old Video Settings - Directory For Fanart...?

All of my Storage Directories are on the backend, including those in the Video Storage Group.

I'm not sure what "Frontend Video Settings" are of interest. Things that affect
playback, for example are frequently unique to each frontend

Re: ip:6544 is not secure it is ignoring parental settings on videos?

All = /Capture;/Channel;/Content;/Dvr;/Guide;/Music;/Myth;/Video / isn't actually valid, the ManageUrlProtection endpoint returns false, as you found. Sorry about that . / was removed after a tester used All and MythTV's UPnP was shut down. I did use SQL to add it just to verify that backend:6544 wa...

Hi,

The default is --basic authentication.

Use: curl --digest --user admin:mythtv --data AdminPassword=mythtv\&Services=None yourBackend:6544/Myth/ManageUrlProtection

Re: mythwelcome - does not shut down

Don't know about #1. For #2, 255 is what I get. But, the bits are additive,
256 implies setup + transcoding, although that seems to be a big coincidence.
See if mythshutdown --help status helps.

Re: ip:6544 is not secure it is ignoring parental settings on videos?

In the above, using / will block everything (more than using All). That will prevent unauthorized access to ipOrHostname:6544 too. But there's nothing to honor parental settings. 3rd party apps can and have set their own blocking UI. /, by the way is likely to block UPnP. There's work afoot in maste...

Re: mythwelcome - does not shut down

Hey Phil, with the same backend logging, can you see anything in mythshutdown.log? Of interest (to me) is from mythshutdown/main.cpp: the setting MythShutdownNvramCmd" defaults to: "/usr/bin/nvram-wakeup --settime $time" but I don't use mythshutdown, rather my ServerHaltCommand in settings is set to...

Re: MythTV confused by daylight saving time

There were massive changes in 0.26 to solve the DST issue: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/UTC Back then, I shutdown when idle and didn't have the issue. But for the last few years, my backend is always on - and I still don't have any trouble when the time changes. Looking with journalctl, I can see tha...

Re: http://localhost:6544 returns 404 not found

Let's see if the backend is even getting the request. On the running backend, type: mythbackend --setverbose http Then tail -f the backend log and from a browser or another window try the failing endpoint: curl localhost:6544/Status/GetStatusHTML You should see something similar to: 2021-03-30 12:08...

Re: http://localhost:6544 returns 404 not found

I suspect you're starting the backend with the --noupnp switch.

Work is ongoing in the master branch to decouple the entire Services API from UPnP,
but it's hasn't been done in v31. Most endpoints work, for example:

Code: Select all

curl <backendHostNameOrIP>:6544/Myth/GetHostName

Re: MythTV keeps recording even though schedules are deleted?

In your custom scripts, don't delete directly from the DB. Use the Services API. For example: curl --data RecordedId=<n> --header Allow:Application/JSON localhost:6544/Dvr/DeleteRecording curl --data RecordId=<n> --header Allow:Application/JSON localhost:6544/Dvr/RemoveRecordSchedule You can replace...

Re: Myth doesn't connect to Silicon Dust tuner properly after power outage

It's started by Upstart, if memory serves. Try looking in /etc/init/mythtv-backend.conf
or something like that. http://upstart.ubuntu.com/cookbook/#pre-start
