Error parsing parameters

Post by Nikolaus » Wed Feb 28, 2018 9:49 pm


I try to configure Mythtv 29.1 under Debian Stretch.

Channel scan will not work. Whatever I try, I get the error message "Error parsing parameters". Is it a bug or is there a solution or workaround ? :?:

thanks for help

Yes, I'm having that problem too. I don't have a solution, unfortunately.

Triple check the pw for mythtv and the account you are using. They need access to the mysql db.

I know I had a problem with the current user:

not matching up with:

also had to make sure the pw in mysql was matching.
90% of all it problems are permissions.
