Re: Database address update

I had called Tech Support at the ISP and appears not to be possible. We tried several menu options over close to half an hour, so I wasn't being given the "bum's rush", the tech really did try to find an option. Post the make and model of your router. There must be someone who is familiar with this...

Re: MythWeb cannot update channel parameters

what did you change max_input_vars to? I have max_input_vars = 100000 in my php.ini and it works OK for me with over 500 and around 300 visible (many duplicates) channels in my system. That reminds me I have not done a full scan for a while, it would be very difficult for me to organise my channels ...

Re: silence.py on Mythtv 31 and kubuntu 20.04 not working

dnalorernst there's no reason for not using the MariaDB package available from the Ubuntu focal distribution. But I don't want to uninstall and reinstall as there's lots of dependencies as far as I recall, unless there would be an easier way to downgrade? I never watch live TV anymore, I tend to rec...

Re: mythtranscode fifo for HD encodes on Mythtv 31 and kubuntu 20.04 not working

Thanks dnalorernst,

It's good to know that it has been reported already.

Just one thing - in that link Mark stated "was looking at just adding full FFmpeg functionality to transcode directly."

Is this still in the pipeline or something that is available now?

Re: silence.py on Mythtv 31 and kubuntu 20.04 not working

Thanks for the help dnalorernst
I missed a couple of

Code: Select all

.encode('utf-8')
So I changed them like your example but I now get the error:-

Code: Select all

Failed due to: "MySQL error: a bytes-like object is required, not 'str'"
I really should learn Python if I want to understand this stuff.

After upgrading to Mythtv 31 and kubuntu 20.04 I have found an issue with mythtranscode using fifo (--fifodir) to output to and use ffmpeg to do the transcode.

Thanks for the tip dnalorernst, I tried that and it seems to get past the error "DBData() could not read from database" but now I am getting the error Failed due to: "can only concatenate str (not "bytes") to str" I am guessing that is to do with the "patch to update silence.py to work with Python3"...
