Is there a betting pool? I pick September--just can't decide between 2020 or 2021!

Re: Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

The OSX builder is running OSX 10.15.3 and XCode 11.3.1. I built fixes/31 on that machine, and I can successfully start mythfrontend, play recordings, play videos, and play music. What video profile are you using? With fixes/31 it should probably be "VideoToolBox Normal", although none of the other...

Re: Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

BTW, which version of Xcode do you have installed? Spelunking some old Macports messages shows that the stack check test was buggy in Xcode 11.1 and 11.2. It appears that 11.4.1 is now available for Catalina. Worth upgrading to see if the problem goes away.

Re: Cannot get Schedules Direct to work on JSON

It contains my Schedules Direct credentials IN PLAIN TEXT! You've just spotted a reason for the SQLite version, which stores the hashed credentials in the DB. The grabbers aren't MythTV products. On the other hand, ~/.my.cnf and /etc/{mysql,my.cnf.d}/... store passwords in plain text too. Proper pe...

Re: Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

None of the linkages jumps out at me as a concern. After a bit of quality DuckDuckGo time, I see why you were adding the '-fno-stack-check' flag. The problem seems to be specific to Xcode 11 on macOS 10.15. The ffmpeg folks added a configure hack (on April 15, 2020) to include the flag: http://git.v...

Re: Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

You might find some clues in the OSX buildbot since it is using pretty much the same build process as you. The fixes-31 builder is here: https://code.mythtv.org/buildbot/#/builders/131 Drilling into the configure step for a recent (successful) build shows the following configure output: https://code...

Re: Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

Also, you might trying running

otool -L $SRC_DIR/programs/mythfrontend

to see exactly what the frontend is linking against. You might be getting a system version of a lib rather than one you intended to get from MacPorts.

Re: Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

I haven't attempted a build of 31 yet, but some random observations: 1) nasm is now preferred over yasm. eg: https://lists.gt.net/mythtv/commits/627574?search_string=nasm;#627574 2) Dependencies. Do you have qt5-mysql-plugin installed? I think it is needed for database access. 3) Re s/VideoToolBox/V...

Re: Trouble streaming a PLS file that works in a browser

@paulh Thanks for the link!

It has been so long since I've added new stations, I'd forgotten that quite a few were not playable. I thought it might be an OS X limitation so I never mentioned it. Are you going to open a bug to track the problem?

Re: White Box covers most of Screen

Thanks for the details but your issue seems to be quite different from what I experienced. Too bad--I was hoping that a fix for this issue might also fix the problem I saw.

Re: White Box covers most of Screen

I take it the white box appears after some sequence of actions? What are those actions? Can you reliably trigger it through a certain set of steps? When the white box appears, does the frontend still accept and process keystrokes? Can you navigate through menus, etc? If you have a mouse connected an...

Re: Looking for guidance, what to buy, what to repurpose

Can someone please clarify the relevance of the HDHomerun's "mpeg2" with the MythTV setup? Link: www.amazon.com/SiliconDust-HDHomeRun-Connect-2-Tuner-HDHR5-2US/dp/B076FNSM6B/ When I'm getting at is this: does the tuner receive a signal, and then encode the stream into mpeg2, and that is the format ...
