Re: Moving mythtv to manjaro from ubuntu, hung at mythweb's video_dir

I disagree with the "current practice is to mount all recording in a single point" comment. It isn't unusual to have a parent, e.g. /srv/mythtv/. What's critical is making sure that if a mount fails, recordings won't end up in the root filesystem. /srv/mythtv/pvX could be a mount point, but /srv/my...

Moving mythtv to manjaro from ubuntu, hung at mythweb's video_dir

I have a nine year old mythbuntu system that would not upgrade from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to 18.04, so I elected to switch to Manjaro. I now will have three Manjaro, two Archlinux and assorted MS Windows systems. I’ve get everything working including a LAMP ( https://forum.manjaro.org/t/install-apache-ma...

So - for those of us - still struggling to get this resolved - and who are not going thru a re-build of the set up... Looking to solve our issues - as it seems to be a change in a configuration somewhere due to the upgrade ... I really have no clue as to what happened. I reran this and there was no...

Re: Metadata lookup fails in 0.29 on 16.04

I should wrap this up. 1st The motherboard failed, it had run 24/7 for over seven years. RIP 2nd Replaced the mother board and power supply with spares on hand. 3rd Tuner card was not fully functional thereafter so I re-downloaded the firmware and redid the setup, which included video sources. 4th R...

Re: Metadata lookup failsin 0.29 on 16.04

Error code 128 fires when ttvdb.py -v fails, or if it's trying to do a lookup on a non-existent jobid. Seeing the command line used by the mythmetadatalookup would nail this down. If the backend is running, then type: mythbackend --setverbose system or start the backend with the -v system switch. T...

Hi, ... I'd restore the .py file and rename the .pyc to .off file, then run ttvdb.py again. If that fails, then: Can we see the output of this (here's mine): dpkg -l python-future python-requests python-requests-cache python-urllib3 ... /usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Television/ttvdb.py -v ...onward ro...

Re: Metadata lookup failsin 0.29 on 16.04

You could try running the grabber from the command line and see if you get any errors. Something like:- /usr/share/mythtv/metadata/Television/ttvdb.py -B Sanctuary I got an error about having the wrong version of the tvdb module installed which was caused by having 2 copies installed in different l...

Still mythmetadatalookup errors out with status 128. Last log entry in mythmetadatalookup.log was for 0.28 a...

for doing that.
I'm guessing uninstall 0.29, drop the 0.29 repositories, then reinstall mythtv..?

I'll give it a try
