Re: Recommend OTA ASTC tuner card

I'm using a wintv-dualhd 1595 model. USB turner. I picks ups nicely for one tuner since kernel 4.11. I can't wait for 4.17 where (in theory) both turners should work. Ubuntu 18.10 has 4.18 kernel but I am on ubuntu 18.04 LTS (kerel 4.15). Really tempted to upgrade... but I like LTS. I think they hav...

Re: transcoding

I read that blog: nice write-up. We need more of those for myth-tv. I look forward to attempting some of those techniques.... So, your error looks like it is trying to delete a file that either does not exist, or it does not have permissions to. When bill6502 was telling you to run it manually, he w...

Re: DVD cuts out early

:mrgreen: I've made some progress.... even created one DVD. The way I have it now is having handbrake run after the cuts, but not in place of mythffmpeg. So, I have ditched the HB profile for now and hardcoded it in doProcessFile. It cleans up nicely. Told you I don't give up easy. :ugeek: The probl...

Re: Suggestion for a decent, currently-available remote/ir pair for Linux frontend

I'm using mythmote on my android phone. :D I connects thru the network, which I am always on wifi at home. It works great. Have not discovered all the keys/mappings for things :? like: go into edit mode E, mark commercials Z, and such (they may be in there, just have not figured it out yet), but it ...

Re: DVD cuts out early

Ugh.. it did not work. :oops: So I saw that "Profiles" had a nice xml file which would lend itself well to HandBrakeCLI parameters. And I was thinking that the videos where good until that point/stage. If I could substitute HandBrakeCLI for mythffmpeg to re-encode, with a few tweaks to the code and ...

Re: Error parsing parameters

Triple check the pw for mythtv and the account you are using. They need access to the mysql db. https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Config.xml I know I had a problem with the current user: /home/myloginname/.mythtv/config.xml not matching up with: /etc/mythtv/config.xml also had to make sure the pw in mysql...

Re: DVD cuts out early

I have heard good things about handbrake and ran it on the source file and it cleaned up nicely.... I'm trying to find the right spot to plug it into mythburn.py. I'm thinking of creating a new "profile" named "HB-SP", etc, then checking for "HB-" in the name and starting the command with handbrake ...

NOT... GIVING... UP! :oops: That's what make be a good computer engineer! :ugeek: BTW, running without cutting the commercials does not seem to help. It just may speed up the process a bit.

Re: projectx - what is it? Do I need it?

hmmm... so projectx does not work with atsc?
is there an alternative for US to projectx?
mythtranscode does a good job of cutting commercials, but a lousy job at "cleaning up".

projectx - what is it? Do I need it?

what is projectx? It seems be a java tool to cut commercials, but mythtranscode can do that, right?

DVD cuts out early

I've been trying to burn a DVD of my recordings, so the kids can watch it in the car. I'm using mytharchive (really nice - overcome a few bugs). The problem is that I am on the outer range of TV stations on my antenna. So, there is a little digital gargle (tech term?) every now and then - not bad re...

Re: Trouble posting to this Forum

Yes. That is the problem.
I just wonder WHY that is a problem. (anything.py)
And, is there a solution?
For now I am posting with extra chars added. :cry:
