Re: building mythtv light v31 for RP3B+

Jim,

I have added a basic check in run_mythfrontend.sh that tests for drm presence (indicates dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d has been enabled).
It exits with a message to run raspi-config, if drm is not found.

As you have have cloned pi-utils, to get the latest version.

Code: Select all

cd pi-utils
git pull

Re: building mythtv light v31 for RP3B+

Jim, I just tried on a clean install of the Raspbian Buster on my Pi3, installed mythtv-light_31.0-13-g2cd6ccb419-0_armhf_buster.deb built on my pi4 and it worked using same command line as you. On the Pi3 did you enable the vc4-fkms-v3d driver using sudo raspi-config ? 7. Advanced Options > A8 GL D...

Re: building mythtv light v31 for RP3B+

Good to know about using the .deb created elsewhere. So does that mean I could build my .deb file on a x86_64 Ubuntu 18.04 system to produce the same .deb for my RP3/4 since the .buildrc file specifies the --arch=armv7 ?? Jim A In a word no. Building on any of Pi2, Pi3 or Pi4 is ok, you can install...

Re: building mythtv light v31 for RP3B+

Jim, Using mythtv-light build system, just use the same configure line you used for Pi4. The script build.sh (called by build_package.sh) already limits the number of parallel make jobs to 2. If you have created the mythtv-light...deb and mythplugins...deb files on a Pi4 you can install them on the ...

Re: mythtranscode not working v31 on RPi4

Need to add --enable-libmp3lame to ./configure line if building from source. If using packaging/deb-light build system there is a bug see https://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/13590 Mike This has been fixed. Let me know if it is still causing a problem.

Re: mythtranscode not working v31 on RPi4

For packaging/deb-light build system, adding to the command line should fix (not tested):

Code: Select all

../../packaging/deb-light/build_package.sh -c "--cpu=cortex-a7 --arch=armv7 --extra-cflags=-mfpu=neon --extra-cxxflags=-mfpu=neon --enable-libmp3lame"

Re: metadata lookup failing with exit code 128

That buster build is old 13 Feb 2020 commit a51f21a As far as I know Peter has not yet released mythtv-light 31, the mythtv-light wiki does not show it as being available. Unfortunately certain problems only appear when the official builds are available. Building from source is not quite the same as...

Re: Relationship between videosource and capture cards ?

Signalmon is a toggle, so hitting the same key combination again should resume LiveTV (it does for me). The key combinations that can be set do depend on your keyboard, you can assign any unused (from mythtv perspective) keys. Edit Keys will warn you when you try to save if the key combination is al...

Re: metadata lookup failing with exit code 128

Did you (re)run ansible to setup build depends, there were some changes around 10 days ago in this area ? You will also need to set StorageGroups (if not already done) in mythtv-setup for coverart,fanart and banners (I always thought that if not setup it would default to recordings storagegroup but ...

Re: Backend on Pi 4

For commercial flagging there is an open ticket https://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/13476 Mike Thanks for the heads up. Out of curiosity is this because the pi4 doesn't have hardware mpeg2 decoding? I have a pi3 with the mpeg2 license, so if I configure it as a slave backend, would it be able to ru...

Re: Another question about Pi 4 as backend

Mike, I compiled the v31, everything works, including the commercial flagging. Absolutely happy with this cut, very clean. And your script saved me a lot of time, thank you. I think I am going to test this for the next few days then will migrate my v26.4 (2015) over. I think the only table I need t...

Re: Relationship between videosource and capture cards ?

mythfrontend does have a signal monitor, but it may need to be assigned to a key press (either keyboard or remote control), the default is Alt+F7 which may or may not work depending on your operating system. For Xubuntu 18.04 setting to Shift+F7 works for me mythfrontend > Setup > Edit Keys > TV Pla...

Re: Another question about Pi 4 as backend

Effect of "--cpu=cortex-a7 --arch=armv7 --extra-cflags=-mfpu=neon --extra-cxxflags=-mfpu=neon" for mythtv 30 is unknown, should only be used from mythtv 31 (needed due to total playback rewrite from that used in prior versions such as mythtv 30). Just in case you have not seen some earlier posts: 1....

Re: Some plugins fails by upgrading databases by MythTV 31.0

The issue is due to newer version of mysql in Xubuntu 20.04
The problem has been reported see https://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/13577
No solution as far as I know at present.
