Show Damaged Recordings on Recording List

I'd like to see what recordings are "damaged" on the recording list, but some themes (like the ones I like for various reasons) don't give any indication of the "videoprop" status. Is there some way to make all themes show "damaged" recordings (such as highlighting them in yellow)?

Hauppauge Model 01595 USB Tuner

I'm looking to replace or augment my Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2255 with their WinTV-dualHD (Model 01595) USB stick tuner. According to Hauppauge's wiki, "This version of the board is like a USB version of the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2255 PCIe card." I'm currently running the 4.15.0-24 kernel in Ubuntu 16.04....

Re: Is there a way to add OTA FM radio.

I've been looking for the same answer. When referring to the "guide" you cited, the first thing to do was: # ivtv-radio -s That app not being installed, I was instructed to install ivtv-utils which I did. After running it again, I got the following: radio: No such file or directory cannot open /dev/...

Re: Migrating Recorded Program Data to Newer Schema

Thanks, guys! The problem does (did) seem to be in the frontend setup as you pointed out.

There are just too many ways to screw mythtv up.

Re: No Video on Old Recordings After Upgrade to .28

Are you using any of the OpenGL playback profiles? If so make sure the theme painter is also set to OpenGL. You seem to have put your finger on my problem. When I restored the old database, the playback profile went to Qt with an OpenGL paint engine. I matched them up and now all seems well. Thanks...

No Video on Old Recordings After Upgrade to .28 [Solved]

Ubuntu 16.04 mythtv .28 In a fresh install of ubuntu 16.04 and mythtv .28, the frontend works well with new recordings, BUT after migrating database with old recording data from mythtv .27's schema, the old recordings (.mpg) only play audio and cause the frontend window to disappear.

Re: Migrating Recorded Program Data to Newer Schema

First I ran /usr/share/mythtv/mythconverg_backup.pl in 14.04 environment. Then I rebooted into 16.04 and ran /usr/share/mythtv/mythconverg_restore.pl. The frontend told me to run mythtv-setup to update the schema. After doing that, I started the frontend and all my old recordings were there, BUT whe...

I recently had the exact same problem. See this thread:

Did you succeed in solving your problem? I had looked at that thread and it didn't give me a warm, fuzzy feeling.

Migrating Recorded Program Data to Newer Schema [Solved]

Specifically .27 to .28. Here's the backstory. I upgraded Mythbuntu 14.04 on PC to 16.04, but there were so many problems I decided to do a fresh 16.04 install on a usb (3.0) stick. The 14.04 PC has mythtv .27 and all my recording data. The 16.04 (usb) now has mythtv .28 with no recording data but s...

Hauppauge HVR-2255 Failing

My Hauppauge HVR-2255 capture card seems to be failing. When I try to record 2 programs simultaneously, it goes for 40-50 minutes and then fails. The backend log reports an "Input/output error" on /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0. I haven't been successful searching for an answer, except for suggestions ...

Can't Get TV Shows to Transcode in Mythfrontend

After editing a recording in mythfrontend, when I try to transcode it, I get a "Transcoding" message on the recording list which eventually goes away. But nothing changes and mythbackend.log contains this message: "mythbackend: mythbackend[25806]: E ProcessRequest mainserver.cpp:4784 (HandleDeleteFi...

Re: Mythbuntu Upgrade Big Problems

I "solved" my problem by reverting back to 14.04. What I want to do is install 16.04 as a boot option. When I get that done, I'll be taking these suggestions.

Thanks!

Re: No mythfilldatabase data for newly added channel

Thanks for responding. It seems to be updating now. Could the problem be related to the checkbox in the channel editor for using EIT for guide data? I'm wondering why the box gets checked when I add a channel. None of the channels I previously added had it checked and I never had to uncheck it.

Thanks to all!

I'm back with 14.04. What I think I'll do is install 16.04 in a test environment so I can work on making all these tweaks without screwing up my working system.

No mythfilldatabase data for newly added channel

Ubuntu 14.04 Guide data from Schedules Direct was working fine until I added two channels (single frequency scan) that I couldn't get before but now can. The IDs are correct according to Schedules Direct, but mythfilldatabase doesn't insert any data for the newly added channels. The downloaded data ...
