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

These boxes are fairly new so there might still be a few bugs to iron out. I have the older boxes and they are rock solid never have a problem with them, even more solid than the HDHomeRun that I also have and does lock up from time to time :evil: . I would try to contact them to let them know you a...

Re: mythtranscode error 139

If that 139 is a proper exit code then it looks like an 'Invalid Time' error code :- https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/blob/master/mythtv/libs/libmythbase/exitcodes.h#L22 The only reference I can see in the code is in connect_to_master() and it refers to the time between the master backend and a slav...

Re: Problems deleteing records for files missing ~ find_orphans.py v31

Yes that version is to old to have the fix.

For now you could just get the updated dt.py file from
https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/blob/f ... lity/dt.py
and replace the old version with the new one.

Re: Problems deleteing records for files missing ~ find_orphans.py v31

The find_orphans.py script uses the MythTV python bindings that are installed alongside the rest of MythTV. If Bill is correct then the file that is broken is dt.py that you will find wherever your distro installs the python bindings. For me it's located here :- /usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-package...

Re: xmltv upgrade for Sched Dir fails to provide grabber

Try running the tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite command directly to see what happens. My guess is you are missing some dependency and it's failing to run. Try something like tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite --description or to see a full list of parameters you can try tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite --help Is that the on...

Re: White Box covers most of Screen

Why don't you understand there is nothing to fix at our end. The problem is with the package maintainers for FreeBSD . What I'm asking is why don't you help your fellow FreeBSD users and help to fix their out of date/broken package. You don't have to be a developer to contribute to open source. I'm ...

Re: CD playback takes much time to start

I've removed all the freedb/cddb stuff from master but can't properly test since the media monitor is not working for UDisk2. I can scan a CD for ripping but without any metadata obviously.

Why don't you guys help your fellow FreeBDS users by fixing the port if it's broken. Give something back instead of take, take, take :evil:

Re: mythlink.pl returning 0000 for film year

You can edit some of the metadata for a recording like the title, subtitle, description, series, episode and inetref on the 'Watch Recordings' screen press menu then Recording Options -> Change Recording Metadata. Unfortunately year is not one of them. It looks fairly easy to add it though. Let me k...

Re: CD playback takes much time to start

Well we are in 2020. CD's are so last century :lol: I'm sure most people these days either buy there music in digital form or get the CD and rip it for convenience so they can have instant access to it and so they can use it on many different platforms. You can't play a CD on phone for example. Havi...

Re: CD playback takes much time to start

My guess would be the CDDB lookup is either taking a long time or I have heard the service we use is may no longer be working.

Why not just rip the CD's so you don't need to bother playing the actual CD?

Re: Terra shows 'EESTEE' in place of time

OK I know what is happening now. MythTV tries to do the right thing but manages to screw it up. The format string from the theme 'hh:mm' gets translated to I guess what must be the Finnish equivalent of 'tt:mm' which intern is passed as a format string to QDateTime::toString(). because 't' means Tim...

Re: Terra shows 'EESTEE' in place of time

It looks OK in English but there is definitely something wrong when Suomi is selected for the language. The problem with using %TIME% is it uses the user defined time format which is OK if it is set to 'hh:mm' but might not fit the available space if it is set to something like 'hh:mm am' although a...
