Re: database query for videos

What are you using for database access? I'm using DBeaver now, both directly on my MythTV box and also on my Windows laptop via ssh tunnel. Works great for browsing tables. Most of my queries are to get info on program schedule and recordings, not videos, but maybe this will get you started: select ...

Re: mythtv31 and schedules Direct

Why was it necessary to drop support for Data Direct? Surely it could have remained supported until a much more streamlined process for setting up XMLTV could be built into the backend config. Well, they did have dual support for a while. I upgraded to the new grabber while on mythtv 30 because I s...

HBO Max subscribers check your access now

If anybody else uses a browser on their MythTV box (or any Linux box) to access HBO Max, please check your access now. Any browser, any Linux distro. Reports from many users say it stopped working a few days ago. Plays the previews but stops at the main feature. It is likely they've upped DRM securi...

Where do drafts go?

I saved a new post as a draft, and can't find where to continue editing it. What am I missing?

Re: lock fails on single channel

There are several websites where you can find channels near you, that don't all have the most current info, especially in the months around a repack. Sometimes not even the FCC site shows channels that have already moved. I think the repack was finished in CT, USA last year but I don't know if it's ...

MythTV 31, "glitchy" menus when playing ISO of DVD

When I go to Media Library -> Watch Videos and choose an ISO of a DVD I own, once it plays past all the trailers etc. and gets to the main DVD menu, it plays "glitchy." That is, if there is any video or audio for that menu, they play as if they are on "fast forward." If the menu only has a static ba...

bill6502, what kernel are you on?

I found a page they says "there is something in the 5.4 kernel that causes hangs on Intel iGPUs."

https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comm ... om_freeze/

My kernel:
Linux 5.4.0-33-generic #37-Ubuntu SMP Thu May 21 12:53:59 UTC 2020

Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

So at this point, it's not a mythtv issue, it's video, so no worries if no answer here. But I'll still update with my findings, in case anyone else has a similar problem. I tested with mpv, which supports various video output drivers with option -vo. If I run mpv without specifying -vo, it prints "U...

Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

bill6502, thanks for taking the time to look into this. I know it's not explicitly a MythTV problem, but the problems I had getting to this point could be related to depends (referring mostly to the mysql/mariadb issues, not sure about video yet.) Let me summarize where I started. Last July or so, I...

Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

This is very frustrating. No idea how to fix this. At this point it's not a MythTV problem specifically, because other programs also crash playing video, that worked fine before. mpv crashes, I think it uses hardware acceleration. vlc crashes, even when I disable acceleration. chrome works for strea...

Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

OK, it's got to be related to video, drivers or codecs or something. Both VLC and MPV crash when trying to play a video that worked fine before the upgrade. mpv says: [ffmpeg] AVHWDeviceContext: Failed to query surface attributes: 20 (the requested function is not implemented).

Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

As of this morning, I see the system is starting up on schedule, recording, and shutting down afterward. So I'm not missing any recordings, I just can't watch them until I fix mythfrontend.

Re: Help, Mysql (MariaDB?) not starting after upgrading Xubuntu to 20.04

Yes, MySQL 8.0 can be installed in *buntu 19.10. I did it. Seemed to "hang" for about 5 minutes at 86 percent, but eventually finished. Without explicitly installing MySQL 8 first, upgrade to 20.04 still wants to replace mysql with mariadb and uninstall mythtv. I got everything working on 19.10 + My...
