Re: IR blasting: basic steps?

When I was recording from a cable box I used and iguanaworks transmitter https://www.iguanaworks.net/products/usb-ir-transceiver/ . It worked well but was very painful to set up. It used lirc but I had to compile lirc myself to include the iguanaworks driver. I still have notes I made at the time if...

Re: Audio and Video stutter when playing TrueHD movies

I recommend increasing the audio read ahead.

In frontend - Setup -> Video -> Playback -> Advanced Playback Settings -> Audio Read ahead. Increase it to 1000 or 2000.

Re: leanfront requirements

Trying leanfront again on the fire stick gen2, MPEG2 as well as H264 seem to work well now. The only problem I see is that there is no deinterlace.

Re: leanfront requirements

OK I found the problem. The latest version is not working with the fire stick. I will get a fix done.

Re: leanfront requirements

Minimum api version is 21, so it should run. I have tested leanfront on a fire stick second gen, but not recently. I will test it again to see if it still works. However, the fire stick second gen does not handle MPEG2 well, it stops and starts. Also it does not deinterlace. So if you only have H264...

Re: MythFillDatabase not updating the Mythtv programming database when using XMLTV.

31.0+fixes.20200323.9579662cdc-0ubuntu1 that you are running now is the original March version. Upgraded versions can be obtained from the PPA. You should not have any problems accessing the database from a version upgraded from the PPA.

Re: MythFillDatabase not updating the Mythtv programming database when using XMLTV.

The memory problem should have been fixed in v31.0-37-gf5d75a6de7. Is your version earlier than that?

Re: Inactivity of Android/Shield stops playback

I would think that it should set a bookmark before exiting playback. I suggest you log a bug at https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/issues to get this commit fixed so it sets a bookmark before exiting playback if the option to set bookmarks on exit is selected in setup.

Re: MythFillDatabase not updating the Mythtv programming database when using XMLTV.

You only need one source. Three capture cards, one video source, three input connections.

I recommend you check your setup of capture cards, video source and input connections. Something is likely inconsistent.

Re: MythFillDatabase not updating the Mythtv programming database when using XMLTV.

Try running mythfilldatabase with -v xmltv to see if the grabber is displaying any error messages.

Re: Leanfront v0-218 fade to black

I have not seen this but all of my viewing lately is on fire stick 4K. Let me know if you find anything more specific. I do not think any change between 216 and 218 could have caused this. The only changes are adding the audio sync adjustment feature, and a change to the transparency of some dialogs.

Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

I use HandBrakeCLI for transcoding. It also will by default eliminate letter box borders. However that takes time and is not useful for Live TV or watching programs still recording.

Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

The audio on the sample you sent me is awful. Did you put this through mythtranscode or mythcommflag? Those do seem to mess up the audio for leanfront. Of you use those then I recommend putting the file through mkvmerge after the mythtranscode or mythcommflag if you want to use it with leanfront.

Re: leanfront zoom issue but only on the FireTV Cube?

I don't have a fire tv cube so I can't test this. If the problem also affects VLC then, as you say, it is likely a problem with the fire tv cube itself. Leanfront uses standard android calls to resize. It is surprising that a basic android method does not work on the fire tv call.
