Re: ERROR while downloading theme package from master backend

Almost 2 weeks and no replies. Has anyone even tried to verify this. It does it on all 5 of my machines.

Re: Programme Guide not scrolling left/right (Functionality 29.2 theme)

Was just curious if this ever got resolved? If not, how did the 3 hour schedule work out for you.

Re: scanning for channels

Your new install may be missing the firmware/drivers for your tuners. Look at the firmware on the old install and see what's missing in the new install. Check to see what's being loaded. An example for my tuners. wes@mythfe0:~$ dmesg|grep registering [ 4.650675] dvbdev: DVB: registering new adapter ...

ERROR while downloading theme package from master backend

Trying to figure out why i get this after deleting a theme either manually in ~/.mythtv/themes or by doing so in theme chooser. Been like this for several versions now. Deleting the theme dir doesn't delete anything else anywhere. Can anyone tell me what's going on. TIA

I'm pretty sure he's talking about this, that was fixed some time back, but maybe didn't make it into the mythtv-light version.

Is that Divco dual tuner available in the U.S.?
It was when I bought mine ~10 years ago. Good luck finding them now.

Re: Recommend OTA ASTC tuner card

$100 for a quad tuner is cheap cheap cheap. I paid more than that for a single tuner years back, and gave them away because they didn't work that great and replaced them with 3 dual tuners that also cost over $100 each at the time. Dual or quad will probably only have one input for a cable. Any newe...

Re: KCBS LA not Found after frequency change

Don't live in LA and don't have a hd home run but would assume you'd need to run the scan on the hd home run first.

Re: Recommend OTA ASTC tuner card

the more you split the cable the more signal strength you lose. I've got 10 tuners. 6 in my mythbox and 4 to TV's. So I needed a distribution amp to increase signal strength once i got past 6 tuners. A lot will depend on how many times you split the cable. Also depends on the quality of the tuners. ...

Re: Error: MythTV database has newer TV Schema

You can't upgrade the backend version without upgrading the frontend to the same version. Just upgrade the frontend to the same version as the backend and you should be good. wes@mythfe0:~$ mythbackend --version Please attach all output as a file in bug reports.
