Re: Best option to connect to Sat Set top box

Please note that you probably won't be able to find an IPTV encoder that does anything better than 2-channel audio. I just did another round of scouring the interwebs last week, and still couldn't find anything. I'd be glad to be proven wrong, though!

Re: Remote frontend setup

I think your problem is most likely either:
- MySQL is running on the backend without external networking enabled ("skip-networking" is set in /etc/my.cnf)
- or the frontend isn't allowed to access port 3306 (MySQL) due to a firewall rule

Re: How to use mythtv to record streaming on roky

I think maybe the OP was asking if it's possible to record (using Myth) streams that are playing through the Roku. If so, I don't think this is possible.

Re: Sierra 10.12.4

Live TV is, for me, just as inconsistent as always, regardless of OS. I suggest you look in the backend logs for clues to your problem.

Re: building native frontend for Tizen

The MythTV source contains both the frontend and the backend. While it used to be possible to tell "configure" not to build the backend, this no longer seems to be the case. There's not much advantage in doing so, anyway, as the backend and frontend share so much code that the time savings would be ...

Re: is it possible to schedule an hour of no recordings for

Another idea, if we're using SQL, look at SELECT cardid,inputname,schedorder,livetvorder FROM capturecard ORDER BY cardid; The orders will probably be 1, 2, 3 and 3, 2, 1 currently. You could change all of them to 0 (meaning the card won't be used.) Post reboot, restore the existing order. This isn...

Re: Need someone to check my backend build specs

That will probably be OK to record two programs at once while watching on one frontend, assuming you're not also trying to transcode at the same time. I can't find any specs on the hard drive interface, but if it's SATA 1, as I suspect, anything more than that could be a problem. I ran my BE on an A...

Re: HD-PVR2 support (please vote)

The lack of anything but 2-channel audio makes the IPTV encoder option a non-starter for me.

Re: OS/Distro of choice

I've been the victim of multiple orphaned distros over the years, so over the summer I decided to go with CentOS for my backend server and frontends. It's been great so far, and will probably not get orphaned anytime soon. Of course, I do have to compile Myth myself, but I prefer to do that, anyway....

Re: HDMI input card

This sounds very interesting. This is one of the few reasonably-priced solutions I've seen that does both HDMI and multichannel audio capture. While it does have an open API, it would require a bit of work to integrate it into Myth. At least the API is already C++. Another possible route is to use t...

Re: Different subsets of content on frontends?

One thing that may help is what I do: create a local copy of the base theme (DVR, in my case) in the ~/.mythtv/themes directory of the user running MythFrontend. Then, modify mainmenu.xml to include things like this to allow the user to jump to specific recording groups: <?xml version="1.0" encoding...

Re: Entering Frontend standby when playback is paused

I can't say what happens in Live TV, but I know for certain that xscreensaver kicks in after the expected timeout when playback is paused while playing a Recording. At one point I played with having this trigger an external script to put my frontend computer, TV and receiver into standby mode, but f...

Re: MythTV Backend on Multiple Interfaces?

Yes, the forwarding rules are on the backend box, which has both Ethernet ports (actually, three in total, since it also acts as router/firewall for external Internet traffic.) Once traffic is forwarded, you would point all frontends to the backend IP address on 10.0.1.xxx. As for the actual forward...

Re: MythTV Backend on Multiple Interfaces?

Personally, I just forward traffic between the two interfaces with an iptables rule (actually shorewall). So all frontends connect to the same address, regardless of which network they are on.

Re: Who's watching what?

Not currently. The ability to have different users has been discussed in the past, but as far as I know it has never been implemented.
