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

Here's an example. I am recording two shows (one randomly chosen) [see attached screenshot]

I attempt to record another random program, but it won't go [see attached screenshot]:

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 ...

Re: Record conflict on 0.29 under Ubuntu 16.04

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...

Re: Mythbackend continuously restarting

This afternoon I was looking at syslog and it seemed "clean", there was no stop/start behavior, etc. So I decided to stop, then start the backend using systemctl and watch "top". I get the usual cycle of start/stop of the backend. I see briefly two instances of mythbackend in top, one owned by "user...

Re: Mythbackend continuously restarting

nuc2 is exclusively the backend, no frontend. The frontend is on a different system, a Raspberry Pi 3, no backend. On nuc2, the curl command gives: === $ curl --header "Accept: application/json" localhost:6544/Myth/GetHostName {"String": "nuc2"} === On the frontend (rpi3) the command yields: === $ c...

Re: Mythbackend continuously restarting

mythbackend.log I'm not sure why wlan0 shows up, I have disabled wifi completely, the backend is connected via ethernet only. It would be really difficult, I think, to try logging into mysql when the connection is out, because it happens so briefly. The log you'd like is posted below. Note that it ...

Re: Mythbackend continuously restarting

The system stops spewing stop/start messages into the syslog after a while. Checking as you indicate, it seems only one backend is running. It appears that the start up of the backend is problematical somehow, multiple stop/starts are required before it is successful in getting running? Wonderful, j...

Re: Creating a recording rule that records all shows in a se

I recently noticed looking around further that MythWeb's Recording Schedules has a "Custom" option that looks promising.

Thanks for the responses and ideas! I will look into these suggestions and see how they work on my problem series recordings.
