v29.1 How do I reset database password?

I just installed a fresh version 29.1 on a debian 9.7 system and I think I miss typed the password for the database that happened at the end of the install. Unfortunately the debian install does not confirm the password with a double entry so I screwed it up. When I try to run mythtv-setup, I get an...

Re: Error in trying to build MythTV v 0.29 in Debian 9.6

You da man. That worked. I edited /build/packaging/deb/debian/changelog.in and added a "-stretch" to the end of the myth version on the first line. i.e. mythtv (2:29.1+fixes-stretch) bionic; urgency=medium then $ git add changelog.in $ git commit I then changed to correct build directory $ cd /build...

Re: Mythtv v 0.29.1 recorder offline, tuner has an error

[Work Around] I removed this problem by swapping in another WinTV HVR-1250. Apparently this is a "real" 1250. I suspect the first one wasn't (maybe a 1265?) Anyway the lspci -nnk output: 02:00.0 Multimedia video controller [0400]: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23885 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [14f1:8852...

Re: Mythtv v 0.29.1 recorder offline, tuner has an error

There is no /var/log/mythtv. The BE is auto starting somehow, probably setup by the dpkg installer from the 29.1 deb found on debmultimedia repo. I'm guessing there is a startup script somewhere that is invoking it but not enabling a log that is written to a file. There looks like some log like info...

Mythtv v 0.29.1 recorder offline, tuner has an error

I have myth tv 0.29.1 installed on a vanilla debian 9.6 system. I have configured the backend and am running the mythtv front end. My tuner card is apparently recognized and has a driver assigned. lspci -nnk output: 02:00.0 Multimedia video controller [0400]: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23887/8 PCIe Br...

Mythtv v 0.29.1 where does storage directory config live?

I have managed to install mythtv v 0.29.1 from deb-multimedia.org repo on a vanilla debian 9.6 system. I messed up while running mythtv setup and defined some bad storage directories location. Where are the config files stored so I can manually edit them since I can't seem to figure out how to delet...

Re: Error in trying to build MythTV v 0.29 in Debian 9.6

Did you have backports enabled on that ansible build? I'm thinking that problems might be related to a package version. I don't see why your ansible build went farther than mine.

Re: Error in trying to build MythTV v 0.29 in Debian 9.6

I too have tried using ansible to install dependencies on a different machine and I got the same error as before. You should probably start a new thread with the new issue.

Re: Recommend OTA ASTC tuner card

How about a wintv-hvr-1250? You can get one used on ebay for less than $20. It is a single tuner but sometimes that is all you need. Make sure you get a used ones as new ones are often rebadged hvr-1265s which do not have support in linux. If you are using windows that doesn't matter.

Re: Error in trying to build MythTV v 0.29 in Debian 9.6

Why don't you open a separate thread about the dependency issue in v 0.28? I would like to get the documentation fixed for building in debian. I know from other posts in this forum (see here: https://forum.mythtv.org/viewtopic.php?t=2646 ) that libcec4-dev is not a dependency for stretch. Apparently...

Re: Error in trying to build MythTV v 0.29 in Debian 9.6

Having done a little research and read the readme where it gives examples of fixes, for ubuntu "Version" is something like "0ubuntu" or something like that. Is their a particular version string for debian?

[Solved] Error in trying to build MythTV v 0.29 in Debian 9.6

I followed the mythtv wiki instructions for building MythTV v 0.29. I installed the dependencies from the "Installing Build Dependencies without Ansible" wiki page and included the erroneously excluded libcec-dev (libcec4-dev not available in stretch). When I run the build-debs script with fixes/29 ...
