Re: Border on Playback

Black Border I suggest you turn off overscan with raspi-config or by editing the /boot/config.txt and uncommenting or adding the line disable_overscan=1 Reboot after changing the setting. Also, turn off overscan in your TV if that is an option in the TV setup menu. After this, use MythTV frontend a...

Re: Install MYTHTV to raspberry Pi 3

I tried a Pi ver.B as a frontend only. It mostly worked except LiveTV was horrible due to the mpeg format. Recordings played fine. I gave up on it due to the Pi being so under powered and the GUI interface being sluggish. I've heard of people having success using Kodi as a frontend for MythTV. I re...

I don't know anybody who will do that. The place to inquire about that is the MythTV Contractors forum (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum ... ontractors)

Re: Install MYTHTV to raspberry Pi 3

You do not need to pay, MytTV is free software. MythTV consists of two parts: frontend and backend. The frontend is for watching recordings, videos, TV, etc. and the backend makes the recordings and servers them to the frontend. You can run frontend and backend together on one desktop or laptop comp...

Re: Issues with a new Mythbuntu/MythTV setup

Have you tried different playback profiles (Setup->Video->Playback, screen 3)? Depending on the capabilities of your video card you should be able to select a better one than the default. Generally, NVidia cards work best, in conjunction with the VDPAU playback profiles. With you video card you may ...

Re: find_orphans.py Fails

If you have a recording in your database but the file is missing you should be able to find it in "watch recordings" on the frontend. It will not play and will show with a red border or something to indicate the file is missing, but you should be able to select "menu" and then delete it. After that ...

Re: Can't watch tv or record unless I restart backend servic

Probably your backend is starting up before the network is fully available. The backend tries to open all of the tuners during startup and if it cannot contact them it disables them from use during that backend run. This code in your systemd service file should wait for mysql and the network. (file ...

Re: Mint 18 or is it 16.04 Myth Live TV not working

My guess is that it is not seeing your tuners or your tuners are not correctly set up.

Re: database newer than expected error on new computer

Is this the backend or frontend that is looking at the wrong database? In any case, it looks in the $HOME/.mythtv/config.xml file for the database details. If you have a file there you can edit it to point to the correct place. Some distributions will put a link to /etc/mythtv/config.xml. You can re...

Re: Watch TV (live) Is Jittery But Recorded Program Is OK

Perhaps there is a network issue. Is your frontend possibly on a separate machine connected to the backend using wifi? It would be useful if you can post details of your hardware, tuners, network setup.

Re: Playback Profile Needed for 720p

I suggest trying opengl if vdpau is not working well. Note that in order to use opengl for playback profile you must use opengl for theme painter. "Auto" for theme painter may also work if the "Auto" setting selects opengl.

Re: Watch TV (live) Is Jittery But Recorded Program Is OK

Did you try pressing "Pause" for a few seconds, then "Play" while watching live TV? That may allow the recording to get ahead enough so that the playback is not starved of data.
