Re: IR Blaster recommendations

Is there a cablecard in that DCX-3200-m? There is in Shaw's dcx3400 box. If so, maybe consider a cablecard tuner instead of the HD-PVR 1212.

Re: Converting from WMC to MythTV w/Ceton InfiniTV 4

It looks like Optimum on Long Island has some channels that cannot be use with MythTV: http://lists.mythtv.org/pipermail/mythtv-users/2015-October/382462.html. The channels need to be flagged copy freely . It did open a GUI window for "Files". Assuming that is the same thing? Yes. That is the same t...

Re: Converting from WMC to MythTV w/Ceton InfiniTV 4

Have you verified that all of the channels you want to use with MythTV are not copy restricted? Which cable company? 1) Since the folder /ceton wasn't under /dev did I do something wrong and need to start over? I'm not familiar with Centon, but my guess would be no. 2) I'm doing everything as my reg...

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

Since this is on Ubuntu, do I need to have to have run the mythtv_setup as the "mythtv" user? I don't think you need to run mythtv-setup as the mythtv user. [Edit: It may sometimes be easier to run mythtv user -- see https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/XMLTV#MythTV_Setup.] Something is not right with loadi...

Re: Audio looping on pause / stop (10 seconds)

Has anyone seen anything like this ? Yes. I have seen those exact symptoms, but it was random and infrequent. I had a NUC with a low power (15 watts TDP and 9.5 watts TDP-down) Core i5 (i5-6260U) processor and Intel graphics. I don't know if it was the hardware causing the problem, but I have not h...

Re: HDHomeRun with Mythtv 31

If you would like many days worth of guide data, you will typically need Schedules Direct. Since you own an HDHR, you can get about four hours of guide data which is updated about every three hours while live TV is being watched with hdhrepg2myth . This program is about three years old, but it is wh...

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

For clear QAM, you could take a look at forum.mythtv.org/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=3567. You could also try to run Hdhrchan2myth, but I'm not sure that will work as I have only used it with an HDHR Prime with encrypted channels.

Re: Mythtv on Ubuntu 20.04

When you press the one button on the remote when testing with "sudo ir-keytable -t", does the output include "KEY_1"? If not, you need to check the files as Wes mentioned.

Re: Mythtv on Ubuntu 20.04

Open a terminal and enter "sudo ir-keytable -t". Press a button on the remote, and see if the scancode matches what you have in the table file.

Re: building mythtv light v31 for RP3B+

What kind of remote are you using with the FireTV? Is it more of a pain to use the FireTV remote? Isn't it possible to use a full remote with numbers with a RPi to more quickly change the channel for those that use MythTV to watch live TV?

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

Any reason for not using the ppa? I have never built MythTV. Here are the steps I used for v30 on Ubuntu 18.04. You said you have one HDHR connected to cable TV? Is it an HDHR Prime or do you have clear QAM cable? Good luck.

Re: Another question about Pi 4 as backend

Some people are using a Pi for a combined frontend and backend. I imagine having a few channels via OTA would be better than many channels with cable in this case.

Re: Trying to migrate from Media Center to Ubuntu MythTV

I would not use 19.10, and I would not upgrade to 20.04. Since 20.04 is being released next month, I would wait and do a fresh install of Ubuntu or Xubuntu 20.04.

Re: Comcast's International Channels Changing to IP-based delivery

There are multiple sources indicating that all of Comcast's channels will eventually switch to IP instead of QAM. Don't know when.
