Re: HD-PVR2 support (please vote)

The lack of anything but 2-channel audio makes the IPTV encoder option a non-starter for me.

Re: OS/Distro of choice

I've been the victim of multiple orphaned distros over the years, so over the summer I decided to go with CentOS for my backend server and frontends. It's been great so far, and will probably not get orphaned anytime soon. Of course, I do have to compile Myth myself, but I prefer to do that, anyway....

Re: HDMI input card

This sounds very interesting. This is one of the few reasonably-priced solutions I've seen that does both HDMI and multichannel audio capture. While it does have an open API, it would require a bit of work to integrate it into Myth. At least the API is already C++. Another possible route is to use t...

Re: Different subsets of content on frontends?

One thing that may help is what I do: create a local copy of the base theme (DVR, in my case) in the ~/.mythtv/themes directory of the user running MythFrontend. Then, modify mainmenu.xml to include things like this to allow the user to jump to specific recording groups: <?xml version="1.0" encoding...

Re: Entering Frontend standby when playback is paused

I can't say what happens in Live TV, but I know for certain that xscreensaver kicks in after the expected timeout when playback is paused while playing a Recording. At one point I played with having this trigger an external script to put my frontend computer, TV and receiver into standby mode, but f...

Re: MythTV Backend on Multiple Interfaces?

Yes, the forwarding rules are on the backend box, which has both Ethernet ports (actually, three in total, since it also acts as router/firewall for external Internet traffic.) Once traffic is forwarded, you would point all frontends to the backend IP address on 10.0.1.xxx. As for the actual forward...

Re: MythTV Backend on Multiple Interfaces?

Personally, I just forward traffic between the two interfaces with an iptables rule (actually shorewall). So all frontends connect to the same address, regardless of which network they are on.

Re: Who's watching what?

Not currently. The ability to have different users has been discussed in the past, but as far as I know it has never been implemented.

Re: Enhancement request

Live TV? What's that?

Yes, TV remotes these days usually have a dot, dash, # or somesuch button that enters a separator. I've also seen some TVs that try to be smart, such that if you enter "32" and there is no channel "32" programmed it will assume you meant "3.2".

Re: Enhancement request

1. Headings: That worked, thanks. I ended up having to copy/paste from that page, rather than download the plaintext version, since that asked for a login. They couldn't just make it easy. 2. IIRC, at one point Myth's channel scanner used to assign names like "5_3", but now it does "5.3". The ones w...

Re: Enhancement request

Hi Phil, I ran your script and have some suggestions: In the tables, such as "list channels by Call sign", the headings don't line up with the data. For OTA, the fields atsc_major_chan and atsc_minor_chan should be included, IMHO. These are very important to understanding which channel you're lookin...

Re: Enhancement request

I'm definitely interested, too. I have two data sources, one of which is Dish. I'd love to try it out. You can send me a private message, if you like.

Re: OSX Server

From what I've heard, OS X Server is really the same as the Desktop version, with just a few extra configuration utilities and daemons. There's no reason it would work any differently as far as Myth is concerned.

Re: Automatic commercial flagging won't run

Check your job queue to be sure there aren't any "stuck" jobs. I've had this happen in the past, and it blocks new jobs from starting.

Re: Automatic commercial flagging won't run

Run mythtv-setup and check in the General settings. There is a master override for commercial flagging jobs. Also, make sure the range of times at which jobs can run is sensible.
