No useful output from Find_orphans.py

Find_orphans.py used to work fine for me on 0.27 but when I try to use in on 30.0 I get the following: $ python /usr/share/mythtv/find_orphans.py Please select from the following 1. Refresh list > If I enter a 1 it repeats. Anything other than a 1 is out of range. System details: Ubuntu 18.04.1, Ker...

I may be suffering from seriously faded brain but I don't see an obvious way to edit the subject line.

Re: Scheduled recording fails

The permissions issue was it. The NAS were fine but mythtv didn't have write permission to the local directories that were mapped to the NAS.
Now all I need to do is learn how to mark the subject line with (SOLVED).

Re: Scheduled recording fails

Ok, verified that the user the backend is started with mythtv. The file permissions are 755. A check of the ownership shows that some of the files are owned by mike (me) and are in the mike group while most are owned by pulse and are in the geoclue group. Pulse and geoclue are legitimate Ubuntu user...

Re: Scheduled recording fails

No luck. I'm fairly sure the problem is with not recording to the NAS, the most recent file on either one is more than 2 weeks old.

Re: Scheduled recording fails

Thanks Bill, the storage directory in question isn't full but it is on a NAS with a permissions issue that denied access to user MythTV. The permission granted access to mythtv instead. Of course the correct user name is MythTV, the wonders of case sensitivity.... The next scheduled recording starts...

Re: mythconverg_restore fails to restore database

Problem solved. I just needed to remember to add the ppa for Mythtv 30 and run "apt update, apt full-upgrade" after downloading the new frontend. The v30 frontend is working like a charm.
Thanks for the help and advice.

Re: mythconverg_restore fails to restore database

Since the schema was revealed in my BE log then I assume you are saying my operation is not normal (your Sorry, the schema is not revealed in BE logs under normal operation.)? Are you saying that since I am running MythTV v30 then 1350 schema is what I should expect? If that is the case then why doe...

Re: mythconverg_restore fails to restore database

I've been away on other business since my last post. Using the = separator instead of space, made no difference. I did get the backend running and it appears to be ok except for not having my database; at least I can access the backend through MythWeb. However, when I start a frontend (all of my fro...

This is what I got: $ The mythconverg_restore command with the --verbose --drop database --create database --directory /mnt/NASQNAP/MythTV/DBBackups --filena...
