Re: Screen Setup Wizards cause FE to freeze

The black border is probably from the raspberry pi overscan settings. Edit the /boot/config.txt and set or uncomment disable_overscan=1 and comment out lines overscan_left, overscan_right, overscan_top and overscan_bottom. If this does not completely solve it you can comment the disable_overscan and...

Re: Schedules Direct and the lack of filling out S/E

There are instructions for converting to the SD JSON feed. It does not happen automatically. See the wiki here -

Since that conversion I am getting season and episode info for everything.

Need to add --enable-libmp3lame to ./configure line if building from source. If using packaging/deb-light build system there is a bug see https://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/13590

This has been fixed. Let me know if it is still causing a problem.

Re: Another question about Pi 4 as backend

Please bear in mind that the v0.27 version of MythTV for Raspberry Pi is unofficial, unsupported and has some bugs. The source code for v0.27 is not in the main MythTV repository. You need to use v30 or v31. Note also there are major changes in playback between v30 and v31.

Re: Master from source on Raspberry 4 4GB

I can see that mythtv-light was good to have when the RPi was not capable of running a combo FE/BE like the RPi4 is. I'm just curious if you are using an Rpi4B with 4GB of DRAM why you would need a Light version? The light version is still a full build of everything. What it excludes is setting up ...

You did not mention which theme you are using. I suggest trying another theme, for example Steppes, or the default, Mythcenter.

I suggest building the mythtv-light package and installing that. Instructions are here:

Re: Setup with tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite

Ste the xmltvid in MythTV, in the channel editor. If you have mythweb, you can also set them using that. Did they somehow get set automatically?

Re: Setup with tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite

For over the air channels, mythfilldatabase cannot insert into the database since it does not know the frequencies and other details needed for the channels. So for over the air you have to scan to get the channels setup, and then go in and manually set the xmltv id for each channel. Make sure you u...

Re: Building Mythtv from source on raspbian

You may want to take a look at https://github.com/MythTV/packaging/blo ... Readme.rst This documents building the mythtv-light packages including for raspberry pi and should be more up to date. I have not tried that on pi4, probably it will have the same issue with arch.

A search through the code shows that the web browser widget is only used in program details and in plugins. What happens if you move your cursor to a program name and press I or info? That should create a web browser and display the results there.Does that work and does it have any effect on the whi...

Re: Service to get SHUTDOWN_COUNTDOWN?

You can easily check if the frontend is idle by using the network control port. Enable network control in the frontend setup. Send a message to port 6546 "query location" and if it returns "standbymode" it is in standby mode. For example: if pidof mythfrontend ; then fstate=`( sleep 1 ; echo query l...
