Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

I also have tried to get mythhdhrrecorder working, and failed. In the GitHub docs at: https://github.com/garybuhrmaster/mythhdhrrecorder I do not understand how to go about the directive to "Fetch Channels" under "Setup in MythTV." Whatever I am doing now always gives no channels. Silicon Dust has ...

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

Re Mythhdhrrecorder, just a guess, but the wiki page says: This program requires python3, and a number libraries. It is useful to run it standalone with the --help option before configuring it in MythTV to determine if you have the necessary libraries installed. The author of the script is frequentl...

Re: Myth Backend Won't Start

If you use Myth_Stop_Start to (well) stop and start the backend, does that work OK?

Re: Myth Backend Won't Start

That seems to be a mythtv-setup log. Please post the most recent mythbackend log.

Re: Myth Backend Won't Start

Assuming you are running version 0.28, the logs should be under: /opt/dvr/var/log/mythtv.28 A new file is created each time mythbackend tries to run. BTW, have you waited 10 minutes? For a lot of people, on a fresh reboot, mythbackend fails to start the first time it tries to launch as something (ne...

Re: Builds

Thanks. I guess I need to patch the script to find our copy of mysqldump. MacPorts does some gyrations to allow multiple databases/versions to be installed concurrently so mysqldump isn't in the typical place.

Didn't know about the debug output, either.

Right, the Perl script 1st (in the shared directory) then mysqldump, which could be a $PATH issue.
Am I right that it uses a hard-coded path to look for the Perl script? Can it be changed to respect PREFIX as defined in configure?

Re: Builds

Hmmm, dbutil.cpp hasn't been touched in 3 years: https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/tree/fixes/29/mythtv/libs/libmythbase The Mac version has never been able to run the automatic database backup. I think it expects to find '/usr/local/bin/mysqldump' but, of course, ours is not located there. It has ne...

Re: Builds

I believe I have a working 29.1 build for MacPorts; I just need to do a little more testing (a couple of bugs which I think are core Myth, rather than the build process), and then I'll be passing my updates to Craig for implementing into the MacPorts release. I hope to have my end done within the n...

Re: v0.29 Mythtv released

As of today, there are 565 open tickets in MythTV's Trac: https://code.mythtv.org/trac/query As I think I suggested before, the best way to get started contributing to Myth is to submit a patch that fix a problem (or 12). Or submit a new ticket with a clean patch adding a useful new feature. Follow ...

Re: v0.29 Mythtv released

Yes, there is such an installer, but it does not behave like a regular app, does not install in normal OSX directories, doesn't work with all the plugins, etc. But it is a lot better than it used to be, since no more terminal commands, good job there. My understanding is it's subject to the same ol...
