Re: Pi Frontend Install hassles

Thank you so much for answering. Waiting patiently and my balloon has been deflated on PI. I really could use some PI experts here. Where is it getting the 127.0.0.1 from? There is no /etc/mythtv on PI, should there be? I noticed that 127.0.0.1 was in there, but my config is right (as far as I can t...

Pi Frontend Install hassles

Very excited to get a new Rasberry Pi 4b 4G. I'm trying to get a frontend working on it. Because this is my first time, I used NOOBS, and got Raspian up and running quickly. I followed instructions to install https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/MythTV_Light. Everything installed fine. Copied ~/.mythtv/confi...

Just to be absolutely clear:

/etc/mythtv/config.xml = /home/mythtv/.mythtv/config.xml?

Re: WinTV-DualHD

That is so Exciting @jksj - I am looking forward to it! The good news: I set the max recordings to 3 and viola it works: I can record/watch up to 3 channels on the same frequency, i.g, 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3. Nice :D It did prevent me (as expected) from changing channels to another frequency, i.g., 6.1. ...

Re: MythTV Backend Setup has closed unexpectedly

after a really long time (of no errors) the error came back. I really think it has something to do with jobs in the queue being run after startup. It's mythcommflag jobs, which are set to run automatically after recordings. It seems to happen at startup, probably before mysql can come up. Here is mo...

Thanks for the help Bill. funny thing... it has not happened since the second reboot. Could it have been a background job, flagging commercials that failed? It was happening everyday soon after boot. I'm gonna take out the sleep and see what happens. mythbackend is an executable: file /usr/bin/mythb...

The backend is running, but that coul...
