If that doesn't work copy this to both /home/mythtv/.mythtv/SD.xmltv and /home/<user name>/.mythtv/SD.xmltv if you want to run mythfilldatabase from that user terminal. cache=/home/mythtv/.xmltv/tv_grab_zz_sdjson.cache channel-id-format=default previously-shown-format=date username=your sd username ...

Re: Stuck at v30

First do a full disk backup just in case.
Do a distribution upgrade to 18.04
or
Sometimes it's just quickjer to a new install.
New install of ubuntu 20.04LTS.

Re: [Solved] FrontEnd won’t connect on remote computer Myth 31 Ubuntu 20.04

On the remote FrontEnd, the active MythTV control file is /etc/mythtv/config.xml Use care not to break the symbolic links in the /home directories. On all my remote frontends, the active MythTV control file is /home/<user>/.mythtv/config.xml. The only time I've seen symlinks there to /etc/mythtv/co...

Re: Ubuntu 20.04 PPA

I'm confused. If you are trying to upgrade to mythtv v31 on 20.04lts then all you have to do is install it. V31 is the default in the repo. From CL sudo apt-get install mythtv should install everything you need minus the plugins, which you can install later if you want them. Of course then all the r...

Re: Mythtv doesn't start recordings late???

Set the second recording to start after the first one ends. Shouldn't be a conflict then. Easier, get another tuner for a few bucks. Also set your tuners for more than 1 input. You can record more than 1 channel with one tuner if the channels are on the same major channel. I've recorded as many as 5...

Re: Ubuntu 20.04 PPA

I just added it to 20.04. Whether or not it works, I couldn't say as I'm running V31. With the database changes from 18.04 to 20.04, I kind of doubt it.I'm pretty sure if you install the old DB too it would probably work, but why not just upgrade to V31 and be done with it. root@mythfe0:/home/wes# a...

Re: Ubuntu 20.04 PPA

PPA for V31 works fine for me on 20.04lts. Why would you want to compile it. Just load V31 from the repo. apt-get install mythtv from root terminal. maybe this will help.

Re: Ubuntu 20.04 PPA

What command did you use to add it?
What was the error message?
It may not be supported in 20.04. Maybe it's time to upgrade to v31.

Re: "mythbackend is running on this system" message on frontend-only systems are you sure you want to shutdow

Don't confuse <LocalHostName> with <Host>. <Host> should be the DB server IP address on remote FE's. If you use "common" there, you must resolve it on each FE machine to point to the FE's ip address. I'd avoid using names as ip addresses are absolute and names have to be resolved. <LocalHostName>com...

Re: Recording Rule does not exist - any help?

Recent recordings of movies set to record as one time here also don't have recording rules. I suspect this is by design to keep the DB from storing rules that are no longer needed since they have already accomplished what they were designed to do. Make one recording of the program. In fact, just set...

Re: MythTV wants to upgrade mythmusic but fails

I'm glad someone is working on it. looking at the gtihub plugins source the last commit I saw was like 7 months ago., so it appeared to be idle. I haven't compiled anything from source since first using mythtv 15 or so years ago. I saw the patches from dbcheck.diff, but no updates on github dbcheck....

Re: MythTV wants to upgrade mythmusic but fails

Looking at the trac ticket, this was reported back in Feb. before V31 was even released. It's now been ~6 months and it doesn't look like it's getting worked on as it was classified as minor. This needs to be escalated imo.
