xhost +SI:localuser:mythtv
sudo --login --user=mythtv mythtv-setup

Re: Channel Changing Script Not Accurate in Mythtv.

Copy it to /tmp/.
Open a terminal.

exit

If the above does not work, then it's something to do with MythTV running the script as the mythtv user.

Re: Stuck at v30

If you do a fresh install of 18.04 or 20.04, consider using Mythbuntu Control Panel and use the ppa to install v31.

Any particular reason for not upgrading the backend? You can upgrade without doing a new install.
