Re: Usefulness of database backup

I was thinking about this because I have been using version 30 for months and it works worse than 29, but maybe it is too late to restore and downgrade.

Usefulness of database backup

If I do database backup and record and delete recordings thereafter, and then restore database, will there be a situation where database and recordings are not in sync? How to deal with that?

Re: A channel does not play often

You could try doing a new channelscan with mythtv-setup. This will also give you an indication of the signal strength and thus the quality of the antenna signal. The UI did not show me the signal strength and quality during scan even if there was some reserved place in the left to show them. Anyway...

Full scan does not find certain transport

I have to add the transport manually. Why is this? MythTV version 30.

I get non-free channels even if I choose only unencrypted in scan options

How does MythTV recognize unencrypted channels? I wonder what fails here..

Re: A channel does not play often

I do not remember that I had this problem with MythTV 29, but I have it with 30 for sure. Could there be some software change causing this?

Is your MythTV tuner a multi-tuner? Is the other device a single tuner (like a TV?)
Yes, it is double-tuner, but it has only one signal input. The TV has only one tuner.

Re: A channel does not play often

There is also another channel that is SD quality, but pixelates occasionally. I do not see that problem when watching dedicated TV. This seems to happen with VAAPI2 decoder only. If I use standard (CPU based) decoder, there is no such pixelating of image, but on the other hand there are frequent cr...

A channel does not play often

I have a HD channel on antenna network (DVB-T2) that often does not play. Frontend complains it takes over 3000 ms to get lock. Sometimes I can play the channel without a problem. I can watch the channel by another device using different (unknown) software i.e. dedicated TV even when I can not by My...

Could you explain different settings for VAAPI2 acceleration i.e. renderer and deinterlacer?

Mythtv 30 has VAAPI2 acceleration option for decoder in frontend settings. When selected, there are many options for video rendered and deinterlacer. I would like to know about their differences, some kind of guide on which settings to choose. I suppose the VAAPI2 Normal has the preferred settings, ...

Re: Mythtv channel setup does not recognize all transports

I had this problem already with 0.28, see https://askubuntu.com/q/1071054/21005
But if I remember correctly, I did not have the problem with the one DVB-T2 channel; apparently the signal is weak for the transport, currently.

Re: Mythtv channel setup does not recognize all transports

I have the both tuners connected to EIT so I find the dialog confusing. I think it would be great, if the channel scan could choose the channels from the transmitter that has strongest signal in case there are more than one for a channel. Then there would not be channel conflicts, right? Anyway, I e...

Mythtv channel setup does not recognize all transports

I have a (dual) DVB tuner connected via USB to the backend. I am trying to setup channels, but mythtv-setup does not find channels from certain transport and that is not even listed in "Edit Transports".

[Solved] What is the use of full transport stream channels?

Channel scan in mythtv 30 has an option "Add Full Transport Stream channels" that adds something called MPTS channels, but what is the use of that selection? And when do you not want to choose it?
