Re: mythtv cannot connect to database

So this is what I did: Entered "bind-address = [local network address]" into /etc/mysql/mariadb.conf.d/60-mythtv.cnf. Put the hostname instead of "localhost" into all mythtv config.xml.

Re: mythtv cannot connect to database

I'll try that tomorrow (right now I have a manual recording running and I am afraid that mythtv-backend will interfere if I succeed in sta...

Re: mythtv cannot connect to database

mythbackend is run with command line /usr/bin/mythbackend --daemon --pidfile /var/run/mythtv/mythbackend.pid and user mythtv via /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend and systemd. I did not want to mess with the /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend, instead I started mythtv-frontend as user. It should at least connect t...

Hello, I have been using MythTV for years on this machine. Now, after an upgrade to Debian Buster (with MythTV 30 from deb-multimedia) something broke and I can't figure out what it is.
