Frontend trying to connect with old IP address [solved]

After switching routers, the IP address on the machine hosting the master backend changed and now my the mythtv frontend on my laptop can't connect to it. According to the frontend log, it's trying to connect using the old IP address even though the IP address for the host in /etc/hosts is correct. ...

Mythtv 31 on ubuntu 16.04

I want to be able to connect my ubuntu 16.04 laptop to my ubuntu 20.04 server with mythtv 31. So far, it doesn't seem possible. I installed the reporitory, but `apt-get policy mythtv-frontend` only shows 0.28 available. Is my only option to "upgrade" my laptop? I'm 75 years old and may not live long...

Re: Live TV Starts in Slow Motion

This slo-mo thing popped up on recordings from a particular channel. I selected a different playback profile and it seems to be OK now.

Live TV Starts in Slow Motion

(mythtv 0.31 on ununtu 20.04) When I select "Watch TV" from the main menu, the first channel comes up with the video at about half-time, and the audio at normal time. When I change the channel, the next channel is normal, and so is the original channel when I change back to it. Very strange!

Re: Can't Get Schedules Direct Data

Every time I started mythtv-setup, it gave me more stuff. After several tries, I got a grabber listing and later, configuration for it. Very strange! I finally got program data in the guide.

Re: Can't Get Schedules Direct Data

I did all that. I'm just wondering if I didn't wait long enough, but I waited a pretty long time for mythtv-setup to show a list of grabbers.

[Solved] Can't Get Schedules Direct Data

I installed mythtv 0.31 on a fresh install of ubuntu 20.04. I had previously been running mythtv 0.28 until the PC died. I dumped and restored the old database, did some intensive tinkering to get things to work, and now have a functioning mythbox with the exception of channel listings. I have a Sch...

Re: Hauppauge HVR-2255 Capture Card Not Recognized by ubuntu 20.04

My bad! I didn't realize I had two versions of the .fw file. The one I was trying to load was different (smaller) than the one that had been running in 16.04. Oddly, the file name (NXP7164-2010-04-01.1.fw) on the one that doesn't work seems to indicate that it's a newer version. I switched it with t...

Re: Mysql Problem w/ New Installation

MySQL works. You don't need MariaDB.
Good to know! I haven't been following this for a while and the last I'd heard, Mythtv switched to mariadb with 0.29 - or so I thought.

[Solved] Mysql Problem w/ New Installation

I've been running Mythtv 0.28 on ubunty 16.04 for a while. Recently, the motherboard on the PC fried, so I tried transporting everything to the new one, but 16.04 didn't support some of the new hardware so I decided to upgrade to ubuntu 20.04. Everything was fine until I started to install mythtv wi...

Re: Does MythTV adjust recording time when show is delayed?

Short answer: No. The way I handle it is set the end time 45 min. or so late for shows that are likely to be delayed (CBS is the worst). A good thing about Mythtv is that if you do that for two shows in a row on the same channel (or even the same transport), you can be recording on another channel w...

Wish List: Delay Closed Captioning

Being an older person, but not deaf, I sometimes have trouble understanding dialogue on TV. So I use closed captioning to see what was said if I didn't understand it. Mythtv's closed captioning comes up well before the related audio, meaning I have to choose between always following the CC, or havin...

Is recording as .mpg possible?

After "upgrading" to 0.28, I've seen a distinct loss of picture quality with recorded .ts files versus the old .mpg files. Is there a way to record as .mpg with the "upgraded" version?
