Re: Mythtv 0.31 | Ubuntu 18.04 | VBox XTi 3340 Firmware 2.66

OK I think I see what is wrong. I was wrong about the friendlyName it is not only used in debug messages but also used to identify possible VBoxes. Unfortunately it looks like they have changed the format of the friendlyName so the search is failing. I'd like to see the actual DeviceDescription.xml ...

Re: Mythtv 0.31 | Ubuntu 18.04 | VBox XTi 3340 Firmware 2.66

It's not even getting that far to check the version it's not finding any VBoxes at all. If you use a browser to look at the http://192.168.1.194:55555/DeviceDescription.xml you should get an xml file that contains among other things the deviceType we want 'urn:schemas-upnp-org:device:MediaServer:1' ...

Re: Mythtv 0.31 | Ubuntu 18.04 | VBox XTi 3340 Firmware 2.66

What browser are you using maybe it's trying to beautify the xml? Firefox shows it as formatted xml. Anyway the VBox is responding and the values look good. No sure what's going on. It looks like the auto discovery is not seeing the VBox. You could use one of the UPnP tools to see what they find. Fo...

Re: Mythtv 0.31 | Ubuntu 18.04 | VBox XTi 3340 Firmware 2.66

Doesn't look like it's seeing the VBox at all. In a webbrowser try to query the VBox for the board info by entering this URL (I'm assuming 192.168.1.194 is the IP address of the VBox) http://192.168.1.194/cgi-bin/HttpControl/HttpControlApp?OPTION=1&Method=QueryBoardInfo I would expect a response sim...

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

The Leanfront should be easy to set up since it only needs access to the Services API. So you just need to tell it the IP address of the master backend. The mythfrontend port is a little more difficult but no more difficult than any other remote frontend. You need to set up mysql/mariadb to allow us...

Re: Screwed up FrontEnd GUI config

Have you tried something like this mythfrontend --geometry 800x600+20+20 The first two numbers are the window x and y position and the last two numbers are the window offset from the upper left corner of the screen. or if you know the correct settings you can override them using -O OR --override-set...

Re: mythtranscode error 139

I'm non the wiser. Is the original file a NUV file? What are you trying to do - remove commercials or re-transcode to another format? What is the command you are trying to run?

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

Unfortunately my contact at VBox is no longer working with them, the email just bounced back. I tried to contact support and all I got was Amir no longer works with them and that they don't have any previous report of the issue. They said there was a beta version of the firmware so maybe you need to...

Yes it's been around longer that I thought, the first I heard about it was in this thread :roll: All 3 of my Vboxs are older than what you have, they must be the first generation and you have the second and third?

Re: mythtranscode error 139

The 139 error code is clearly a red herring - mythtranscode is crashing with a segfault.. The difference between using the --mpeg2 switch and not is because it uses different parts of the code, it does lossless cutting using a cutlist and the other re-transcodes the file. mythtranscode uses it's own...
