Re: PCTV 290e dvb-t2 signal problems after update

Having re-read the first post carefully I note that your troubles started with a channel scan, what version of Mythtv are you using? I note that there was a change to the DVB-T2 scanning code. "Add support for explicitly recognising QAM-256 with DVB-T2" https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/commit/99688e...

Re: PCTV 290e dvb-t2 signal problems after update

This is very strange my 290e is absolutely fine on 14.04 so it must be a reception issue. Remember when you tested using windows the channels tuned to could have been different ie from another transmitter. So check your tuned to the correct HD muxes for your area - although I cant see how the upgrad...

Re: PCTV 290e dvb-t2 signal problems after update

The correct syntax for using dvb-fe-tool to set the delivery system is as follows :- dvb-fe-tool -a 102 -f 0 -d DVBT2 With the a and f params specifying the front end adaptor see dvb-fe-tool --help According to http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Dvb-fe-tool dvb-fe-tool --femon provides a signal m...

Re: PCTV 290e dvb-t2 signal problems after update

I just had a tuning failure (8:15 BBC 1 HD Winter Hill) but femon showed a low signal level at the time so I still think my issues are related to reception. The problem you describe seems much more severe. Try using dvb-fe-tool to put the 290e in the correct mode before its used. Stop the backend. R...

Re: PCTV 290e dvb-t2 signal problems after update

I dont know of any other tool besides femon. If you normally get 100% signal I would suspect that could overload the PCTV 290e. Leaving the attenuator in and bringing the signal down a bit might help matters. What sort of failure rate are you experiencing and how many channels do you allow simultane...

Re: PCTV 290e dvb-t2 signal problems after update

My 290e is running fine on 14.04. But I did have to check signal levels and re-configure my aerial so maybe the gain is different. To check install 'femon'. Which on my system gives :- femon -a 102 -H FE: Sony CXD2820R (DVBT) status SCVYL | signal 71% | snr 0% | ber 0 | unc 0 | FE_HAS_LOCK The -a pa...

Re: Recording fails,.. that started successfully

I am a UK user seeing similar problems.
I also use both Freeview & Freesat but the issue only occurs on Freeview. I am using myth 0.28 master.
I currently suspect Freeview reception issues (Winter Hill). Femon is showing a poor signal level at the time these recordings fail.

Yes just follow https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Database_Backup_and_Restore Backup database /usr/share/mythtv/mythconverg_backup.pl --verbose Just in case create links to all recordings using sensible names. /usr/share/doc/mythtv-backend/contrib/user_jobs/mythlink.pl -v --link /targetdirectory --format ...

[solved]Master v0.28-pre-2223-gd07118f regression in live tv

I take weekly updates from Master, this mornings fails on live tv. Recording works as does playback. It is only live viewing that fails. A quick bisect is as follows:- tv@tv:~/MythSource/mythtv$ git bisect log git bisect start # bad: [d07118f8a81b3add247097aad48ca0a2a6ec97d3] VorbisEncoder: initiali...

Re: WebFrontend in Master - no longer connects remotely

I am not surprised by the current behaviour but just pointing out that before June 6th. You could connect to the webfrontend remotely even though the address of the backend was localhost. The former situation is preferable.

No not really Mythweb connects locally on http://192.168.1.108/mythweb/tv/list http://localhost/mythweb/tv/list http://127.0.0.1/mythweb/tv/list and obviously only the top one works remotely.
