Re: Cannot change the path for the DVD in MythArchive

Fixes/31 does have the fix.

It could be something else. Do you see the dvd device in the file browser but can't select it?

Re: DataBase login/Connection failing

Just a guess but it could be the host: mythtv0 you probably need to use localhost?

Re: V32 Mytharchive installed but no entry in menus

Are you sure you are still getting those errors when starting the frontend? If the MythArchive menu entries show now then that would suggest the database updated OK!

Re: V32 Mytharchive installed but no entry in menus

You will just have to update MythTV and it will just work. The same problem affects database updates to other plugins and also some core DB updates are affected as well.

Re: V32 Mytharchive installed but no entry in menus

From what I can gather from other devs newer versions of MySQL and possibly MariaDB require a slightly different syntax for some of the SQL commands to update the various table schemas. It looks like bill6502 is working on a fix so I'll leave it up to him.

Re: V32 Mytharchive installed but no entry in menus

The database is failing to upgrade so the plugin is refusing to load. Since there hasn't been any updates to the MythArchive DB schema in over a decade it must be some incompatibility with whatever MySql or MariaDB you are using. Which are you using and what version is it. The missing MythMusic is b...

Re: This IPTV Stream Won't Work

I don't know about this particular feed, I can't get it to work at all even in vlc, but I'm aware of a problem with some feeds that get redirected to a new URL. If the chunks contain a partial URL then we should create the full URL from the base URL of the m3u and the partial URL of the chunks passe...

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: 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 ...
