Re: mythtv cannot connect to database

Just to be absolutely clear:
does (also)
/etc/mythtv/config.xml = /home/mythtv/.mythtv/config.xml?

I think you left that one out.

Solved: WinTV-DualHD

WOW... what a wait. So, even after the week delay, and and updated (to 18.04.2), I still was on 4.15 kernel. :evil: So I installed HWE to get it there: sudo apt install linux-generic-hwe-18.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04 Finally, I am on kernel 4.18 :D I added a new card, and set the max recordings to 3....

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. ...

Currently, it is working fine, but only with one tuner. :| https://www.linuxtv.o...

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...

Re: MythTV Backend Setup has closed unexpectedly

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...

MythTV Backend Setup has closed unexpectedly

I'm consistently getting this error (Ubuntu report a problem) after boot: MythTV Backend Setup has closed unexpectedly I thought it may be MythTV Backend, and a "race" situation, network not up or capture device not up, but there is that word Setup in the error. The backend is running, but that coul...

Re: Recommend OTA ASTC tuner card

I'm using a wintv-dualhd 1595 model. USB turner. I picks ups nicely for one tuner since kernel 4.11. I can't wait for 4.17 where (in theory) both turners should work. Ubuntu 18.10 has 4.18 kernel but I am on ubuntu 18.04 LTS (kerel 4.15). Really tempted to upgrade... but I like LTS. I think they hav...

Re: transcoding

I read that blog: nice write-up. We need more of those for myth-tv. I look forward to attempting some of those techniques.... So, your error looks like it is trying to delete a file that either does not exist, or it does not have permissions to. When bill6502 was telling you to run it manually, he w...

Re: DVD cuts out early

:mrgreen: I've made some progress.... even created one DVD. The way I have it now is having handbrake run after the cuts, but not in place of mythffmpeg. So, I have ditched the HB profile for now and hardcoded it in doProcessFile. It cleans up nicely. Told you I don't give up easy. :ugeek: The probl...
