Re: Metadata lookup started failing (v30, Devuan Linux)

I have the same issue, however Metadata is not working on on machine with Kubuntu 19.04 but is working on another machine with Xubuntu 19.04. Both machines have identical versions of the packages python-future, python-requests, python-requests-cache, python-urllib3. Kubuntu dpkg -l python-future pyt...

Re: mythvideo metadata not finding correct TV shows

It is not clear why you have two backends.YOu can easily run two frontends off one backend and that works well. I have set up three PCs to be both backend and frontend all three have capture cards. The PC under the TV is my main frontend. My main PC that I use day to day has both frontend for occas...

mythvideo metadata not finding correct TV shows

mythvideo metadata is not finding the correct TV shows on my main backend/frontend machine, however on my main frontend/backend machine that I use connected to the TV the same shows find the correct metadata. So, rather than pressing M on my main backend/frontend machine after transcoding and copyin...

Re: Programme Guide Info, OTA or Schedules Direct

Since Atlas rejected us all I have stuck with OTA. I just have to make sure that I check for upcoming shows and movies every week instead now. One small niggle that I have is that there is often no episode and series listed correctly, sometimes it is in the description and I have scripted a way to e...

Re: Updating movie metadata

I take it that you have a lot of movies and TV series that have never been recorded or given metadata by Mythtv? and are just adding them to mythtv as videos now. Set them up as different storage directories, one at a time? Setup the movies storage directory first and then run "M" for the movies, th...

Re: silence.preset settings for short commercial breaks

Concentrating on what the wiki https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Commercial_detection_with_silences states Algorithm An advert is defined as a cluster of silences, at least <minbreak> long, that is composed of at least <mindetect> silences that occur within <maxsep> of each other. In practice, silences ar...

silence.preset settings for short commercial breaks

I have been using slilence.py for some time now but it often has trouble finding the commercials in late night shows that tend to have shorter commercial breaks than during the day/evening on the same channel e.g. the Paramount channel the commercials on late night shows can be less than 50s and eve...

Re: upgrading to MythTV 30

30 is the current version. You have the correct ppa. It is just the text on ppa 30 page, it has not yet been updated (it was correct when 0.29 was the current release). Thanks for the reassurance . Note: if running 0.29 and upgrading via the mythbuntu 30 ppa you need to run "sudo apt dist-upgrade" ...

upgrading to MythTV 30

I managed to update my secondary backend to MythTV v30 while updating other software, so I bit the bullet and upgraded my main backend and frontend. I got the "You are enabling the development version of MythTV... HERE BE DRAGONS" message after sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mythbuntu/30 sudo apt upgra...

Re: How To: Convert mythcommflag markers to chapter marks within

Cutting out commercials is the way that I do it with my script. I do have to manually adjust the markers before cutting, but that is not much hassle. I can't imagine that watching your transcodes with bookmarks would be much fun because you can't watch the programme uninterrupted without wondering i...

lost connection to videos storage group

I just lost connection to my videos storage group while trying to access videos and now it has lost a lot of metadata on the videos. I have tried to scan for changes and it is taking an awfully long time to scan and re-select the correct shows. Is there any shortcut to doing this? Maybe copying a ta...

Re: HEVC decoding via VDPAU inside MythTV

OK, after further experimentation I have found that I can use HEVC decoding via VDPAU inside MythTV with my hardware and current build of MythTv as long as it is 8bit and not 10bit encodes (that's what I was missing). However, I see that things may be different in MythTV 30:- "Hardware accelerated H...
