Sometimes fails to wake up for recording (but wakes up for mythfilldatabase)

Yesterday morning, I turned on my MythTV box, and as soon as it was up, it immediately started recording, over a half hour into a show it should have woke up for. The same thing happened this morning. However, I looked at system status and saw it woke up over an hour before to run mythfilldatabase. ...

Scanning ts file for "actual" playback quality?

I am looking for a command, ffmpeg or other, that can scan a ts file for errors that will affect display, e.g. glitches that cause a loss of a few seconds (and possibly important dialog.) I don't care about recoverable errors (that is, where error correction succeeds in producing watchable output.) ...

Re: "Change Group Filter" suddenly unsorted?

All I know is, my recording groups were sorted alphabetically (except Default and Deleted) a few days ago, I liked it that way, and now it's not. I am absolutely sure they were sorted because I use this feature every day. I see the query in PlaybackBox::showGroupFilter does not "order by" and the co...

Re: "Change Group Filter" suddenly unsorted?

Bill, I ran the query you posted, and it returns results in the same order they are appearing on my "Change Filter" popup, which is also the same as the order of recgroups.recgroupid, except with Default and Deleted at the bottom. Even though the query doesn't use the recgroups table. That query has...

"Change Group Filter" suddenly unsorted?

On "Watch Recordings" press M and choose "Change Group Filter" The list that appears has always been All Programs --- Groups --- Default Deleted [MY CUSTOM GROUPS SORTED ALPHABETICALLY] --- Categories --- [ALPHABETICAL CATEGORIES] Suddenly, my groups appear in "random" order. At first I thought it w...

Re: database query for videos

What are you using for database access? I'm using DBeaver now, both directly on my MythTV box and also on my Windows laptop via ssh tunnel. Works great for browsing tables. Most of my queries are to get info on program schedule and recordings, not videos, but maybe this will get you started: select ...

Re: mythtv31 and schedules Direct

Why was it necessary to drop support for Data Direct? Surely it could have remained supported until a much more streamlined process for setting up XMLTV could be built into the backend config. Well, they did have dual support for a while. I upgraded to the new grabber while on mythtv 30 because I s...

HBO Max subscribers check your access now

If anybody else uses a browser on their MythTV box (or any Linux box) to access HBO Max, please check your access now. Any browser, any Linux distro. Reports from many users say it stopped working a few days ago. Plays the previews but stops at the main feature. It is likely they've upped DRM securi...

Re: lock fails on single channel

There are several websites where you can find channels near you, that don't all have the most current info, especially in the months around a repack. Sometimes not even the FCC site shows channels that have already moved. I think the repack was finished in CT, USA last year but I don't know if it's ...

MythTV 31, "glitchy" menus when playing ISO of DVD

When I go to Media Library -> Watch Videos and choose an ISO of a DVD I own, once it plays past all the trailers etc. and gets to the main DVD menu, it plays "glitchy." That is, if there is any video or audio for that menu, they play as if they are on "fast forward." If the menu only has a static ba...

bill6502, what kernel are you on?

I found a page they says "there is something in the 5.4 kernel that causes hangs on Intel iGPUs."

Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

So at this point, it's not a mythtv issue, it's video, so no worries if no answer here. But I'll still update with my findings, in case anyone else has a similar problem. I tested with mpv, which supports various video output drivers with option -vo. If I run mpv without specifying -vo, it prints "U...
