Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

I also have tried to get mythhdhrrecorder working, and failed. In the GitHub docs at: https://github.com/garybuhrmaster/mythhdhrrecorder I do not understand how to go about the directive to "Fetch Channels" under "Setup in MythTV." Whatever I am doing now always gives no channels. Silicon Dust has u...

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

I am continuing to fiddle with Silicon Dust's Premium TV on my HDHomerun tuner. One problem I ran into today is a program I had scheduled to be recorded with MythTV suffered a "Recorder failed" error. Looking at the backend log I see that apparently having the HDHR app open and running on an Amazon ...

Re: Mythweb broken after upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04.1

Maybe that fix hasn't yet propagated to the Mythbuntu updates repository I use. I also see at the top of Recording Schedules: Warning at /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/modules/tv/classes/Schedule.php, line 106: !!NoTrans: count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable!!

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

On the subject of guide data I contacted Schedules Direct and asked about lineups for Silicon Dust's Premium TV. They responded as follows: "We have two lineups already created - USA-0000001-CUSTOM and USA-0000002-CUSTOM for East Coast and West Coast lineups on our JSON service." Looks like I am goi...

Re: Mythweb broken after upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04.1

I did this upgrade and fixed my Mythweb problems by running:

sudo a2enmod php7.2

I then had to edit:

/usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/modules/tv/recorded.php

and put quotes around disk_size and disk_used at lines 188,189. Then I ran:

sudo systemctl restart apache2

Hope this helps.

Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

I got a solicitation from Silicon Dust (maker of HDHomerun tuners): Connect and Extend tuners now feature "Premium TV," a smorgasbord of "channels" (such as MSNBC, SyFy, AMC,...) for $35/month. With a tuner firmware update you can see demo versions of such channels, in the HDHomerun app on Android d...

Re: (Solved) Record conflict on 0.29 under Ubuntu 16.04

FOLLOWUP TO ABOVE: It bothered me that the "direct connection" first attempted above did not work. Silicon Dust is a very good tech company and their instructions are usually rock solid. I realized I had achieved a "169.254.x.y" address using the nm-connection-editor and choosing "link-local." I red...

Re: Record conflict on 0.29 under Ubuntu 16.04

I resolved my particular problem: I had been using a "direct connection" between the backend and hdhomerun, i.e., the tuner was connected to a private network "static IP address in the 169.254.x.y range" according to the docs on the Silicon Dust website. As shown above this works but with problems. ...

Re: Record conflict on 0.29 under Ubuntu 16.04

The only source is the OTA antenna. All 4 tuners are attached to it. So yes, it's "setup like that." The conflict seems to be at a higher level, any two programs can be simultaneously recorded, but going beyond that brings in conflicts, whereas there should be enough tuners to deal with the request ...

I am having a similar problem trying to setup a HDHomerun Connect Quatro (4 tuners). I also have 0.29, Mythbuntu 16.04. All 4 tuners are defined in setup, connected to an antenna for OTA TV. I suspect some misconfiguration, but I don't see a way to troubleshoot exactly where the problem is coming fr...

Re: My cable tv / isp has changed to all channel encryption

I once helped my sister-in-law to set up a Tivo with Comcast. What was required was a "cable card," which handles the cable signal decryption, and in my understanding also works with a Hdhomerun. So I believe equipped with one or more of these you should also be able to watch and record the channels...

Re: Mythbackend continuously restarting

Thank you for all your effort. Tonight I was in a big mess, caused by starting and stopping the backend via systemctl to test various "fixes." At one point I found myself with the condition that **at the command line** everything looked fine in a ssh session on the backend. But the frontend wouldn't...
