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

For various reasons I had to update my OS. Was on Xubuntu 19.04, updated to 20.04. (19.04 was too old and even had to point to old-releases.ubuntu.com to get anywhere.) Afterward, mythtv isn't starting correctly. Mysql isn't starting either. I'm thinking the update replaced mysql with mariadb. I tri...

Home made antenna?

Anybody made their own TV antenna(s)? I'm starting to experiment with that. There are so many designs to choose from, depending on what you want it to do. I'm using a single-tuner USB stick with software on my laptop or phone, so I can leave my current MythTV/antenna setup alone until I decide what ...

Re: Watch Recordings Page, background changing

Just be careful when doing all this that you don't disable the processing of metadata lookup jobs, but not disable metadata lookup job creation (in the rules, as stated) or your machine will not shut off automatically. It will put jobs in the queue that won't be processed and then always say there a...

mythwelcome vs new idle mode/screen

First let me say why I don't like the "new" way of not using mythwelcome but instead using only the idle mode/screen in mythfrontend. If I'm misunderstanding the idle mode/screen, and it can do what I want, please let me know. I have a shorter timeout for mythwelcome and a much longer timeout for my...

Re: Mythwelcome hanging (?) on Linux Mint

Don't know if it's related, but check if any jobs are hanging. (commercial flagging, metadata lookup.)

I am getting a blank screen when I try to watch a video with the notice "No Recordings available, or screen loading..." You mean "Watch Recordings?"

Re: Invoke tmdb3 via a script and pass tmdb id

Interesting. Before I started using the services, I had only been running mythutil --scanvideos. I found that for isos with a filename such as "Disc 1.iso" that they were being looked up and found a title of "Disco" with description, actors, etc. in French. I found that's actually a French movie. So...

Re: Invoke tmdb3 via a script and pass tmdb id

Hello, I have an existing movie library, and for each movie i have the TMDB id. Is it possible to invoke tmdb3 script directly for each folder and pass TMDB ID for metadata lookup? At the moment I have to goto 'Media Library' invoke a scan and feed TMDB id manually for each file. Unfortunately, my ...

Re: Service to get SHUTDOWN_COUNTDOWN?

You can easily check if the frontend is idle by using the network control port. Thanks! I'll check that out. However, I'm also going to check if the Frontend service call GetStatus will tell when frontend is in standby mode. However I would recommend rather handle this by adding some checks to the ...

Re: Service to get SHUTDOWN_COUNTDOWN?

I just did some testing and noted that mythfrontend logs a message when it enters standby mode, and another when it leaves. So if nothing else, I can monitor the log.

Re: Service to get SHUTDOWN_COUNTDOWN?

Use case: I want to run a background queue processor (not mythtv jobs, completely external) that will process jobs whenever the system is on, and either the backend is busy or the frontend is being actively used. If backend is not busy, mythshutdown -c still returns "OK to shutdown" even if the fron...

Service to get SHUTDOWN_COUNTDOWN?

Is there a programatic way for a script to get myth's shutdown countdown? (The value you see at the top of mythwelcome when the system is idle and it's going to shut down when the countdown reaches zero.)
