Re: Guide Data for Australia

Looks like Schedules Direct are now testing a service for Australia for anyone interested in testing the new service.

Re: White Box covers most of Screen

That version is from Jan 14, 2019 which is why you don't have the fix. It's actually the very first commit from the v30.0 branch so you don't have any fixes at all that have gone into the v30.0 fixes branch since it was created on that date.

What distro is this?

Re: TV metadata lookup not working

I'd say the pertinent error is the 'ImportError: No module named ordered_dict'.

What version of MythTV are you using?

Re: TV Show Metadata

As a backup for your metadata so you can always restore it you could create an *.mxml file with the same name as the video file but with the extension replaced by .mxml. That's what I do so when you rescan in Myth it will always prefer the metadata from that file before trying to look it up. That wa...

Re: Is there a way to inhibit idle ie screensaver

This issue is being tracked on https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/issues/216 but requires https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/issues/218 being resolved first.

Re: add repo failing

Looks like that PPA only has packages up to eoan which is why it's refusing to be added to focal.

Re: White Box covers most of Screen

Modifying base.xml was a hack to verify the bug was being caused by what I thought it was and shouldn't be used on production systems it's not a proper fix it just masks the bug :!: The fix is to update to a recent version of MythTV that has the bug fix. It's not rocket science honestly :roll: :twis...

Re: Is there a way to inhibit idle ie screensaver

MythTV does try to inhibit the screensaver when playing back a recording, video, play music etc. and works on most systems just fine. No idea what sway is but I believe Wayland is only partially supported even in current master so it's not surprising some things don't work as expected. It would be b...

Re: WebFrontend and canned searches

While MythWeb is EOL and is only getting critical fixes I believe it does still work even in the latest development version of MythTV. WebFrontend was supposed to be it's replacement but development has stalled so MythWeb is likely to stick around for a while longer. We would really like any interes...

Re: VBox TV Gateway, 4144, Software Version XTI_VT.2.66.5.2, too old?

Thanks for testing good to know it works OK. It looks like an interesting Android based VBox. I've got so many questions though. Wish they would be more specific about the specs on their website :) Any idea what processor is in it? How much memory does it have? What about internal storage? Can you u...

It will be interesting to here how you get on with that model. I think you are the first to try the new Android TV based VBOX with MythTV. I guess they must support the same API otherwise mythtv setup would not be finding it :?:

Re: XMLTV grabber for Schedules Direct JSON

You will typically find in the hidden .xmltv directory in the home directory of the user that did the setup. So most users use the mythtv user so you will find it at /home/mythtv/.xmltv/SchedulesDirect.DB

Re: When is disk usage updated on View Recordings menu?

Also one way to see the list of deleted recordings is to go to the 'System Status' page and move to the 'AutoExpire List' tab in the frontend. If you select a deleted recording you can choose 'Delete Now' which will actually delete the recording. If you have the '"Delete files slowly" option turned ...

Re: XMLTV grabber returned error code 1

I've only quickly skimmed through the thread so may have missed something but from my experience you get something like this error when you are missing a perl module and XMLTV is simply failing to run.
