The future of MythTV

We can see from the number of Scheduled Direct users and the Smolt data that MythTV is losing users at an ever increasing rate. We think one reason for this is it's getting harder and harder to record stuff because more services are becoming encrypted requiring proprietary boxes to view and record c...

Re: New "Standby" Message

There is no new "feature" added that I know of that would do that :? It kind of sounds like the idle timer has kicked in and what you are seeing is the standby screen but that would show after a period of inactivity (no key presses or remote movement or video playing). That's been there a long time ...

Re: Myth 0.31 fails to restore database - unable to connect to database.

I assume the problem here is the PERL DBD-mysql connector used by the backup/restore scripts currently does not have caching_sha2_password support.

Re: Nvidia Shield v Firestick 4K for full frontend

Some have had some luck with sideloading MLUSB Mounter on to their Shield and using something like Kodi or VLC to play a DVD but the reviews are hit and miss, you have to buy a paid extension and even then it will not play copyright-protected discs. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/shield...

Re: Nvidia Shield v Firestick 4K for full frontend

Since I have a USB DVD drive and an Nvidia Shield I thought I'd give it a try to see what happens and as I thought it does not work :( The shield appears to see the DVD drive but using adb shell I can't see where or even if it's mounted so it's not possible to tell MythTV where the DVD drive is moun...

Re: [Solved] IR Remote Keys Repeat Many Times Starting with Kernel 5.8.0-49

I just upgraded my FE's to 21.04 and all works fine with the 5.11.0-17 kernel. Another clean upgrade with no problems - well done Ubuntu :D

Re: Are storage directories used or the old Video Settings - Directory For Fanart...?

I think they are the old legacy MythVideo settings that you could set on each frontend. The recommendation is to not use those and instead setup the various storage groups on the master BE. All FE's local or remote can then access their content without having to mess with shared folders using NFS or...

Re: IR Remote Keys Repeat Many Times Starting with Kernel 5.8.0-49

Yeah my parents box suddenly started to behave oddly with each key press sending 100's of key presses causing the box to momentarily lock up making it unusable. I just reinstalled the previous working kernel (5.8.0-48-generic) and adjusted grub to use that for now until they sort it out. You can ins...

Re: seeking/editing in mythfrontend

After transcoding, I use ffprobe to extract the i-frame data, and update mythconverg's recordedseek and markup tables from that. See https://git.sdf.org/nb0yjxtr/ffmpeg-mythtv/src/branch/master/ffmpeg-myth.scm#L515 That would be an important point to put on the issue. We wouldn't want a dev spend d...

You can password protect some or all the Service API urls but not sure if that is what you are looking for.
