Having trouble in getting Mythtv to work with Kodi. At first i thought they were incompatible with each other . Going through many posts on Google found this forum.
Kodi is working well but does not have the function to scan satellite channels like Mythtv does ( hoe i am right on that ).
So Mythtv would be a backend here as Kodi is frontend or not ? Would tv/sat channels be loaded in from Kodi or Myth ?
Ok, went to enable the kodi addon for Myth and i get :

Really need much more information on your configuration:
mythtv version ?
Are you running Kodi on the same machine as mythbackend or another machine ?
What is Kodi version ?
If you are running Kodi on another machine is mythbackend setup using a real IP address (not 127.0.0.1). By default mythtv-setup will assume same machine and not allow remote connections from another machine.
There a thread on the Kodi forum, which over a number of posts, lists things to check (note it was in relation to Ubuntu 16.04, you are running Ubuntu 14 so the stuff relating to systemd is not relevant) see here :
Many thanks for replying.
Please except my apologies for not getting back to you earlier.
I made some screenshots and i think my mythtv version is 2.0.2.
Also will be runing Mythtv on the same pc as Kodi Krypton 17.0 alpha 4 , i think.
The ip at the moment for Kodi is the local one of 127.0.0.1.
One screenshot is telling me to look at the log for details and there i am lost.
Had a look at your thread in Kodi but i do not understand it , not even a wisker.

Suggest you try the following in a terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
This should get you the latest Kodi 17 build and pvr.mythtv.
Many thanks for the upgrade , looks like Kodi upgraded fine but Mythtv has stayed the same.
Again tried to enable the Myth addon but the same error as before.
Thanks again for helping .

You need to uninstall the existing pvr.mthtv and install the latest version (kodi-pvr-mythtv).
So here goes with a terminal again (anything from # onwards is just my comment, don't type it):
sudo apt-cache search pvr # this will give you a list
sudo apt-get remove <name of pvr-mythtv from list> # something like xbmc-pvr-mythtv-cmyth
sudo apt-get install kodi-pvr-mythtv # current version
Can you also post the output of the following command, again in a temrinal, it will give the mythtv version information (I want to make sure you have a recent version)
This output is telling me that

sudo apt-get install kodi-pvr-mythtv ?
I also ran that last command :
Code: Select all
reel@BM2LTSR66RBin:/media/hd/home/reel$ mythbackend --version The program 'mythbackend' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install mythtv-backend You will have to enable the component called reel@BM2LTSR66RBin:/media/hd/home/reel$
Is this something to do with synaptic ?
Many thanks again.
I found out what 'multiverse' is , it´s a repository .
I was on the right path when i mentioned synaptic .
Once again entered into the terminal :

Ok then, thanks for trying to help at least.
I will just have to find some other way of scanning tv/satellite channels into Kodi.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/0.28
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mythtv
Many thanks for helping here. I had begun to look for other ways of scanning in tv channels when google notifier said i had a new notification for this post .
On entering the sudo apt-get install mythtv igot :
