0.28 on Ubuntu 16.10 Mythbackend cannot be killed

Post by notidefix » Fri Jan 20, 2017 12:31 pm

you know when you start myth backend setup you are asked to stop mythbackend and continue....well it does not stop mythbackend., but I can continue to use the backend setup

problem arises when I try to rescan channels, which I cannot because capture cards are used by the running backend

I just installed the latest build of mythtv (17-01) which fixed one problem, but it has not fixed this one...

thanks.

that works at the command prompt

I also set that to the backend stop command in setup, but it does not work there (but at least it does ask me for the authentication password)
