Re: Mythtv on Ubuntu 20.04

I just quickly set up my 18.04 LTS mythtv frontend setup, in a different partition of the same system. I had been using lirc to control this. With lirc temporarily shut down and ir-keytable and its config files in place, remote number key presses DO show up in the terminal. Hence apparently there is...

Re: Mythtv on Ubuntu 20.04

wesnewell, I appreciate your interest in this problem. Files are set up as you suggest. sudo ir-keytable -t shows output for the number keys 0,1,...,9, identifying them as KEY_0, KEY_1, etc. But there is no output shown at all in a desktop terminal, as well as Notes, and also an application called M...

Re: Mythtv on Ubuntu 20.04

I been pounding away on this for some time to no avail. It seems as tho everything is in place, but somehow remote key presses are not reaching mythtv, or if they are, they are not causing actions.

I wonder if there is any way to log remote control key press events in mythtv?

Re: Mythtv on Ubuntu 20.04

In response to bill6502, sometime after I switched to v31 (in early March, I believe) I noticed that mythfilldatabase was not running automagically as it had with v30. This is on my backend running 18.04 LTS, which is fully updated to a JSON Schedules Direct working configuration. I spent quite a lo...

Re: Mythtv on Ubuntu 20.04

Thanks for the input. I have read many postings about ir-keytable, etc., finding yours (wesnewell) hugely informative. One thing I spotted in your posting in this thread is this, in your output of ir-keytable: == .. Driver: mceusb, table: rc-rc6-mce ... == Mine looks like this: == ... Driver: nuvoto...

Re: Mythtv on Ubuntu 20.04

The output of "sudo ir-keytable -t" gives the matching scancode, but alas, it doesn't do anything in MythTV, other than the exception noted above.

Mythtv on Ubuntu 20.04 (edit: mostly ir-keytable/lirc issue)

I've been running MythTV for years and have found the major hurdles are when I change to a new version of the platform I run it on, Ubuntu, or upgrade to a new version of MythTV. For example, with respect to the latter I recently upgraded to v31 (on 18.04 LTS) and found that mythfilldatabase was no ...

Re: Mythtv Installation instructions for RPI 4

Great that you posted your howto. I set up a RPi 4 recently, and wish I had had something detailed like this to refer to.

You say "I use a bluetooth remote instead of a CEC enabled remote". What is the make and model of that bluetooth remote?

Re: HDHomerun second tuner 0.29 problem

I have an HDHomerun Quatro, on v30. I did my configuration a long time ago, so I find it difficult to answer your questions on the exact method of doing the config.

The result, however, is that I have 2x4 = 8 encoders and can record several shows simultaneously.

Hope this helps.

Re: Frontend on raspberry pi 4

After struggling with this for a while, I have decided to ditch the Raspberry Pi 4 and the Flirc, and go back to the NUC as my frontend.

I am able to set up the Logitech Harmony remote using a MythTV wiki page:

https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/MyHarmony

and find that it works quite well.

Re: Frontend on raspberry pi 4

I now have a Logitech 665 remote which I bought to help get the Flirc+MythTV set up. Given the hype about Logitech Harmony remotes and the Flirc, I am surprised at how little info there is on getting things set up. The Flirc website seems practically useless. The Logitech Harmony site is predictable...

Re: Frontend on raspberry pi 4

Before I bought this Raspberry Pi 4, my frontend was a NUC: which has an IR detector, but no CEC. With the Pi, CEC, no IR. So I bought a Flirc. Given the glowing statements about this gadget, I thought my worries were over. Indeed, running thru up-left-down... initial button configuration lets the r...

Re: Frontend on raspberry pi 4

Whoops! I don't understand this, but somehow in repeatedly changing different settings, suddenly the lower resolution configuration took. Now I have:

$ tvservice -s
state 0xa [HDMI CEA (16) RGB lim 16:9], 1920x1080 @ 60.00Hz, progressive

and at this setting there is no audio delay problem.
