Re: Help! "No Recordings available, or screen loading..."

This usually happens when the currently selected Filter or Group doesn't have any recordings My settings do not remember the previously selected group when exiting recordings. It always starts on Default recording group. And Default definitely has recordings. On the other hand, somebody else had be...

Re: AddVideo filename syntax?

The API is looking for the Storage Group: Videos . I'd verify that that points to /data2/videos too. Thanks. That must be it. I haven't defined a Videos storage group. mythutil --scanvideos works fine when automatically scanning for all videos, but I'm working on transcoding specific recordings wit...

Re: Help! "No Recordings available, or screen loading..."

OK, this is weird, but I found a solution, at least it works for now. I'll report back if it changes. In the "Watch Recordings" screen, press m for menu, choose "Change Group Filter", then choose any group. Boom. Listings back. Change back to default group, still works. Exit frontend and restart it,...

Help! "No Recordings available, or screen loading..."

When I choose Media Library -> Watch Recordings, I get the message "No Recordings available, or screen loading...". How to fix? Watch Videos works. Program Guide/Watch TV works. I set up a recording to test that still works, and it does. Information center shows it's recording, so does Upcoming Reco...

AddVideo filename syntax?

https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Video_Service#AddVideo I'm trying to add a video with the Video Service. I am sending a POST as required, with FileName and HostName in the POST data. It always returns a 500 error. mythbackend.log shows "Provided filename does not exist!" The file is directly in my video...

Re: A channel does not play often

I can watch the channel by another device... Is your MythTV tuner a multi-tuner? Is the other device a single tuner (like a TV?) A multi-tuner has an internal splitter, just like those devices you use to split a coax to feed two or more TVs (or whatever.) A two-way splitter generally loses about 3....

Re: Metadata lookup causes Backend to deadlock

Aha! I'll bet this is the issue I've been occasionally having, when I thought it was mythcommflag. Last week, I updated all my rules to disable metadata jobs, and limited queue processing to 1 simultaneous job at low cpu use. Haven't had the "Could not connect to backend" problem since. I disabled m...

Changing recorded filename and info after external transcode?

What I would like to do is, transcode a recording with an external transcoder (handbrake, ffmpeg, etc.) then update mythconverg so that the recording points to the new file (different extension than .ts) and the info about the recording is correct (file size, resolution, etc.) I haven't found an api...

Re: What to do when SchedulesDirect is wrong?

I noticed the listings were fixed this morning, then got an email from SD confirming the update was finished. The good news is, using the JSON1 extension, I can create a sqlite script to double-check for issues such as just happened, before I'm two days into missed/duplicated recordings. :) If I com...

Re: What to do when SchedulesDirect is wrong?

I've just been using "like" but it's not exact. I believe there are some ways with sqlite to query json but I haven't had time to figure that out yet, except to know it's not supported "out of the box" with what was installed to support the grabber script. I was wrong. json_extract select * from pr...

Re: What to do when SchedulesDirect is wrong?

I sent SD a message with the link above, on 12/28, and got a reply the same day that they were in the process of updating the schedule and would let me know when it was complete. No followup yet. I did poke around in the sqlite database and found that for the affected shows (only on COZI TV) there i...

Re: What to do when SchedulesDirect is wrong?

Thanks. I tried that link once before and never got any response. (Not a problem because I figured out the problem was with only with data direct and not the newer api.) But I've sent a new message.

I'll suspend rules for this channel until the data sorts out.

What to do when SchedulesDirect is wrong?

I'm using tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite. (Mentioning that because I know the data is sometimes different for DataDirect, as I recently converted.) Just noticed that for one channel (COZI TV) all the series lost the per-episode description and now all episodes have a "generic" description (summary of the ...

"Regular" users, customizing theme for more info

I'm not particularly interested in developing a whole theme, but I am in customizing an existing one to show the info I want. If that's you too, here are a few things I've done that you may want to check out. First make a copy of the theme you like and rename it, then select it. Depending on what yo...

Re: Look up missing season/episode info?

After looking over my existing recordings, I have noticed that the problem where some episodes had season/episode and others did not, was before I switched from the DataDirect grabber to tv_grab_zz_json_sqlite. The series recordings set up after I switched seem to consistently have this information....
