Here's how to recreate category_type from recorded table

In table program: program.category_type is either 'movie', 'series', 'sports', or 'tvshow'. But table recorded doesn't have this. So once a show is recorded, and after a while the upcoming schedule has "rolled off" the data in table program, you can't join with it any more. Is that right? (My system...

Re: Not finding my mainmenu.xml?

The menu theme development guide implies mainmenu.xml should be copied into your theme folder. https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Menu_theme_development_guide#Editing_a_Main_Menu Scroll up a bit from the heading. The last directory mentioned was the custom theme directory being modified. But, according to ...

Not finding my mainmenu.xml?

I'm modifying a theme. In ~/.mythtv/themes I've copied a whole theme directory to a new name, and modified the name in themeinfo.xml. I am able to select this menu in setup. I want to modify items on the main menu, which this theme doesn't redefine, so I copied /usr/share/mythtv/themes/defaultmenu/m...

Does MythTV adjust recording time when show is delayed?

I am asking this based on what I just observed MythTV doing, after a football game delayed the prime time schedule. Here's what happened: Had a show set up to record all (new) episodes, tonight (Sunday.) Started watching the recording when the clock was about halfway through its scheduled air time, ...

Pre-populate titles/categories/etc for easier scheduling of future shows?

Is there any comprehensive source for known titles/categories/etc. that may be imported to mythconverg, independent of schedule? This would be great to pre-populate a new MythTV system, to make it easier to schedule programs that have not yet been loaded my mythfilldatabase and therefore don't appea...

mythwelcome slow update/reaction time?

Does anybody else notice mythwelcome being slow to update the screen or react to input? What I mean is... - Idle countdown to shutoff only updates about every 10 seconds - Pressing m takes several seconds to pop up menu - After exiting front end, displays "old" time in lower right corner for several...

Re: Help! Set up ACPI Shutdown/Wakeup

I think the looping may have been because of the aforementioned problem where it didn't pick up my changes until after a reboot. That is, I tried different things in the Shutdown/Wakeup screen but the system held onto previous "bad/non-executable" values so it couldn't actually shut down. Now that t...

Re: Help! Set up ACPI Shutdown/Wakeup

Can anyone confirm the following? It appears that the mythtv-setup Shutdown/Wakeup settings for "Command to set wakeup time" and "Server halt command" are used only to wake up for scheduled recordings, while the equivalent settings shown for mythwelcome --setup are used for the daily wakeup/shutdown...

Re: Help! Set up ACPI Shutdown/Wakeup

Well, I just figured out part of the problem... Evidently, the values I changed in mythtv-setup Shutdown/Wakeup were not getting picked up, and it kept using the old values. So I could keep changing them until I was blue in the face and it would never work. I just put in rtcwake to set the wakeup ti...

[Solved] Help! Set up ACPI Shutdown/Wakeup

Running a single machine, combined frontend/backend, starting mythwelcome after bootup, which autostarts frontend. Trying to get suspend/resume to record working. My machine can write to rtc, suspend, and wake up at the correct time, when I do it manually with rtcwake. sudo rtcwake -m no -t [time] s...

Re: Here's how to fix "gksu not found"

Great! So is adding user "mythtv" as a sudoer just a workaround, or something that should be done regardless? I must have previously done that. I've been working on setting up my mythtv box for a while, and don't remember. Would mythtv-setup have worked without my change above replacing gksu (if "my...

Here's how to fix "gksu not found"

I'm running Xubuntu 19.04. MythTV 30. When I run mythtv-setup from the command line, there is a message printed about gksu not being found. Long story short, gksu is deprecated and removed. One of the recommended replacements is pkexec. Look for /usr/share/mythtv/dialog_functions dot s h. Search for...

Troubleshoot/redo install problems?

I'm away from my mythtv computer at the moment so can't give logs or anything until later. Installing mythtv on xubuntu 19.04. Hardware seems fine because, before installation of mythtv, I scanned for channels and got mpv to view live tv. Installed mythtv with apt. Full package, combined frontend/ba...
