Re: mythtv31 and schedules Direct

I'm not aware of any official documentation other than the wiki. If there is one thing devs don't like it's doing documentation so it's left to the users to fill in the gaps :lol: :roll: I did look to see if I still had the notes from when I had to switch to SD from the RadioTimes grabber when it we...

Re: No HD Homerun tuner in v31

Yes sorry you will have to do the 'make' and 'sudo make install' again. There should be a mythtv directory inside mythtv-31.0 change into that and then run './configure --previous' that will use the same command line arguments to configure you used last time. In the output from configure you should ...

Re: No HD Homerun tuner in v31

You will also need the dev version of the libhomerun package if your distro packages it separately, most do, then you will have to do a make distclean and rerun ./configure. You should see that HDHomeRun support is now present in the configure output and mythfrontend --version should now list using_...

Re: Slight Visual Studder with TrueHD 7.1 Audio Track

You are probably better asking on the dev mailing list about this. You will likley have to supply a sample file and the more info you can give about your set up the better. The video playback has changed significantly in v31 so only do this if you can reproduce this in that version and please try th...

Re: mythtv31 and schedules Direct

The wiki by its nature is largely user generated content. If you think it's vague and confusing then help to update it so it's not :D

Re: No HD Homerun tuner in v31

Most likely you don't have libhdhomerun or the dev package for it installed.

We used to use our own copy but since version 30 now use the system installed version of a few more libraries.

Re: v 32 upgrade results in daily updates of 200MB

It sounds like you may be using version 32 which is the development version so it does get updated often.
You would be better sticking with 31-fixes which should in theory only receive backported fixes so wont update as often.

You're clearly "You do it my way or not at all" kind of guy. In my world there is room for both approaches and I let the user decide which to use :lol:

Re: Watch Recordings Page, background changing

That wont stop the existing recordings that already have fantart from displaying the fanart though. The issue isn't that the metadata is being collected it's that the theme he is using will display it if it's available. So you need to remove or comment out the <fanart> image in recordings-ui.xml Loo...

Re: Watch Recordings Page, background changing

It's up to the theme to decide whether to show the fanart, coverart, thumb images etc. If you don't want to see them then either change themes to ones that don't show them or edit the theme so the images are not shown or better still create your own copy of the theme you like and remove them from th...

Re: Weekly cron job fails with fixes/30 on Debian 10

I'm being lazy an can't be bothered to check the commits :roll: but I have a vague recollection of fixing this already maybe the changes weren't backported to fixes/30?

Re: Another case of Decoder timed out waiting for free video buffers

Unfortunately 31.0 needs a newer version of Qt than is available in 16.04 so no packages will be built for it. We do support the 18.04 LTS release though. I use the propitiatory NVidia driver on several systems and can't say I've had any problems. The only time you will have problems is if your vide...

Re: Another case of Decoder timed out waiting for free video buffers

The video playback has been almost completely rewritten for MythTV 31.0 which will be released very soon :) I do anticipate some video playback teething problems with the new release which will only become apparent as more people test it but the hope is it should be easier to maintain and be more st...

Re: After rescan, mythfrontend now segfaults

We can help you with compilation issues. They are very often a lot easier to fix :(

What distro do you use. Are there no packaged version available?
