Re: V32 Mytharchive installed but no entry in menus

The menu entries for the various plugins only show up if the relevant plugin is installed and has been compiled with the same library version.

Do you see anything in the frontend log when starting up about incompatible library versions?

Are the plugins installed to /usr/lib/mythtv/plugins/ ?

Re: MythTV freezes with finnish YLE programs

IMO that ppa is following master too closely & with no regard to whether the build is working, only considering build success. But I tested your video files in latest master from yesterday & they decoded & seemed to play okay (PQ etc another matter). There has been a massive re-factoring in playbac...

Re: MythTV freezes with finnish YLE programs

You can probably still get a useful backtrace if you are using the Ubuntu packages without having to compile from source yourself. You just need to install the mythtv-dbg package that contains the debug symbols then run mythfrontend.real under gdb. When it freezes or locks up press Ctrl-C then hopef...

Re: Christmas themes now available for MythTV 30 and 31

Did no one notice the polar bears in one of the backgrounds :?: You don't see many of them wandering down the high street here :lol: I've done a little research on the painting. The artist is actually an American called Dennis Lewan born in 1948 from Thorp, Wisconsin. The painting is called Polar Be...

Re: Separate always-on WebFrontend

:idea: You can set up the Pi as the master BE with the database and MythWeb , you will have to add at least one tuner to it but that can be one you don't use like a fake external tuner or IPTV tuner. Use your existing BE as a slave BE. You can set up the master to wake any slaves when needed to reco...

Re: Mythmusic Import CD Hangs

Yes the hang when importing a CD is caused by the cddb lookup. It has already been fixed in master by simply removing all the cddb lookup stuff which MusicBrainz no longer supports and there are no free cddb services available we can use. So in master you can RIP a CD but you have to manually enter ...

Re: How does one play an audio CD with mythmusic?

:roll: What I meant by the CD's are so 20th Century comment is most people don't play the actual CD they either buy their music in digital form or if they do have a CD they rip the music from it and play the digital copy. There are many advantages to doing that like you don't have to go hunting for ...

Re: Remotes with sturdy switches???

This guy recently posted about a remote he was manufacturing. Not sure if it's exactly what you are looking for. Personally I don't like the look of it and it's quite expensive for what it is. https://forum.mythtv.org/viewtopic.php?t=4076 https://www.tindie.com/products/bdmicrocraft/remote-control-f...

5 new background images added to the MythCenterXMAS theme including one curiosity :-)

I've just added 5 more background images to the XMAS theme including one I couldn't resist adding! My parents got a box canvas that lights up from the inside with a snowy image of what I guess is an English village scene on it. There are some cottages, a church, a river & bridge with some people ska...

Re: Mythtv 0.31 | Ubuntu 18.04 | VBox XTi 3340 Firmware 2.66

If you mean is v29/v30 broken in the same way then yes they are. Typically fixes for bugs are committed to master and after a week or so are usually also committed to the current fixes branch so currently v31. We usually don't fix earlier branches although that is at the discretion of the developer....

Re: database connections suddenly not working

I'd start by checking MySQL or MariaDB is actually running OK and then try to connect to it on the commandline using the same user and password used by MythTV.

Are you perhaps using Wayland?

There is some potential workaround on that ticket you could try.
