Delay backend startup for device detection with systemd

fter upgrading my (0.28) backend to Ubuntu 16.04 it would not reliably use all tuners. The backend service was starting before udev had detected all USB devices and created symlinks for them. Creating this systemd configuration file will delay the start of the backend service until udev has settled:...

No Metadata on scheduled recordings?

Hey all, In the past week, I've moved from Windows Media Center to an Ubuntu box using MythTV backend and Kodi front end. I just finished setting everything up and I'm using PVR.MythTV plugin for live TV. My issue is that when I go to schedule recordings for a weekly recurrence, the recording seems ...

HDPVR dead, didn't find alternative product, will have to leave mythtv

So, my HDPVR just died. Tried to replace the power supply for a second time, but this will not do this time... Seem like there is no HD capture device compatible with Linux and MythTV available on the market right now. Did I miss something? MythTV was great for the last 10 years. Sad to leave it, wi...

My wife was using myth and was doing a cleanup, namely adding a whole bunch of recordings to a playlist and deleting the recordings in the playlist. This is something both of us have done many many times without issue, until the other night. The other night I'm not totally sure what happened, but at...

Suggestion for a decent, currently-available remote/ir pair for Linux frontend

I'm getting pretty sick of the crappy remote I've been putting up with for the six years that I've been running my MythTV frontend (this one). Although I don't use the actual remote, this particular receiver and its button mappings are horrible; The receiver will nondeterministically bind itself to ...

Disable Commercial skipping for live TV?

If mythtv gets left in live TV mode, all the shows get put in the queue for grabbing metadata and commercial flagging. The metadata is quick enough but the commercial flagging is slow and leads to a big backlog. I've looked in the settings and can't see any way to disable it for liveTV. Does anyone ...
