Live TV obscures EPG description

When I bring up the EPG on mythfrontend, I find that the live tv picture that appears in the top-right of the screen is shown over the top of the rest of the EPG screen, with the result that some of the description text is not readable. Is there a setting to (ideally) make the description text float...

Re: Tuners currently busy - but works after restarting backe

No, my bad. I was trying mythbuntu 16.04 and didn't realise that that meant I'd be using systemd.
I've since tried mythbuntu 14.04 and everything worked, so I'm going to stick with that for now. Thanks.

Re: RC6 remote - irw not working, ir-keytable works

I changed the REMOTE_DEVICE setting in the config to /dev/lirc1 and that seems to have worked.

RC6 remote - irw not working, ir-keytable works

I have two input devices, one is a wireless logitech keyboard (/dev/lirc0) which works great and one is a generic RC6 MCE remote (/dev/lirc1), for which only the up/down and volume buttons are working. I'm trying to get the remote fully working but have struggled. Initially I didnt have /dev/lirc so...

Re: Recommend a usb remote? (UK)

Thanks for your post! I thought I might not get a reply so in the meantime i opted for one of these Aim MCE remotes from Maplin: http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/windows-media-centre-remote-control-a49ha It has the green windows button on it, but I will get over it. Being new to this, it took me a little w...

Recommend a usb remote? (UK)

I'm looking to get a USB remote to work with my Mythbuntu combined backend/frontend.
Can anyone recommend a good remote to get that will be compatible out of the box?
Iddeally I'd prefer not to get one that's microsoft branded, but will try to keep an open mind.

Re: "MythTV could not connect to the database"

Thanks!
I have an SSD too. I put this into my /usr/bin/mythfrontend and now its better:

Code: Select all

# sleep if network initialisation is incomplete
ping -c2 192.168.0.3 > /dev/null
if [ $? -ne 0 ]
then 
	sleep 3

[SOLVED] "MythTV could not connect to the database"

My instance of MythTV (latest version, running on Mythbuntu) shows me on startup the screen from which I select my country/language and next says "could not connect to the database" and prompts me to "OK" the database config settings. From that point on, it all seems to work fine and can connect suc...

Re: TBS IR remote

Thanks for your reply. By the looks of it, something seems possible, even if it means manually mapping each key. I will give it a go! Update: Using ir-keytable to log button presses on my remote, events are only getting fired occasionally. It seems to take 3 or more presses sometimes to generate an ...

TBS IR remote

I have a IR remote that came with my TBS tuner card. Is there a simple way to configure this for use with mythtv through mythbuntu? I looked through the various choices in the setup but it doesn't appear to be amongst those listed. I'm not very familiar with the process but is it a case of sourcing ...

[SOLVED] Cannot open "Setup" from mythfrontend

When I click on "Setup" in the frontend, it prompts me for a password (which I type correctly) and then does nothing. I'm new to MythTv so the rest of my installation is new, but its mostly functional. I haven't set up a IR remote yet but I've been able to watch and record programs from LiveTV and p...
