Re: XMLTV grabber returned error code 1

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: v31 and MXML files. How are they supposed to work?

It's a while since I used this, could be 2 or 3 years ago so something may have changed or been broken and I do use my own fork of MythTV and not everything gets committed to the official MythTV repo. The way I used to use it to import video into MythTV was I have a modified version of MythArchive t...

Re: Storage Group not found

I suspect the "Live TV" storage group is one of the built-in ones that are used for specific tasks. That one will be used to store the temporary recordings created when you watch Live TV using the frontend. You will have to create a new storage group using a different name and use that.

MariaDB 10.4 crashes

MariaDB 10.4 and 10.5 has a bug that causes it to segfault and then restart which causes problems for mythbackend. Users are advised to use MariaDB 10.3 or MySQL that doesn't seem to be affected until this bug is fixed upstream in MariaDB. https://jira.mariadb.org/browse/MDEV-20261 The bug is know t...

Re: What's the recomended hardware to test MythTV on OSX?

New or used? Definitely used. I wouldn't spend what Apple wants for any new hardware. :roll: Do you want to test building Myth or running it? I need it for both compiling and running MythTV but I've also been asked to create a OSX build of MythQML so I'm looking for the cheapest solution to test wh...

Re: Plugin development under mythtv 30

I've updated the MythHello wiki page to be hopefully more relevant to the current builds of MythTV. I compile tested a build of the plugin using current fixes/31 and it built OK. Haven't tried to install or run it though since I use master. If you have time try the MythHello instructions again and l...

What's the recomended hardware to test MythTV on OSX?

Anyone have some suggestions what a good, cheap system would be to use for testing MythTV on OSX? Don't suppose anyone has any old hardware collecting dust they want to donate to the cause :lol: I've also seen some mention of running OSX in a VM is that possible without owing an OSX machine though (...

Re: How can I submit a bug report to Trac?

I just tried from a different browser and it works for me but I am an admin on trac so maybe the login is different. What I did was leave the user name and password blank and click the GitHub button. That takes you to a GitHub login page where you enter your GitHub user name or email address and pas...

Re: Myth31 /Ubuntu20.04 - mysqld CPU usage every 1 min (MythFillDB)

The old Schedules Direct grabber allowed SD to suggested a time that you should run mythfilldatabase. The idea was to spread the load that their servers would get across a 24 hour period rather than everyone running the grabber at 2am or whatever. I don't think it has a use any more so should I beli...

Try turning off the 'Run listings data program at time suggested' setting.

You will find it in mythtv-setup under 1. General -> Programme Schedule Downloading Options -> Automatically update programme listings

Re: Upgrading fromV30 to V31

I suspect the libcec thing is a red herring. Having stale libraries and filters have been known to cause a segfault on startup. If it's not that then you will have run mythfrontend under gdb and get a backtrace for us to help identify what the problem is. There are Ubuntu specific instructions here ...

Re: Upgrading fromV30 to V31

I think you may be missing libcec4 . I only see the deb packaging has libcec-dev as a build dependency and not libcec4 as runtime dependency so you may be on to something. Wonder why no one has had this problem before? Let me know if installing libcec4 fixes the problem for you and I will add it to ...
