MiniMyth2 ARMv7/ARMv8 editions

Post by warpme1 » Mon Jan 06, 2020 3:50 pm

Dears,

Magic Mark Kendall is doing within MythTV rendering allowed me to extend MiniMyth2(*) project to ARMv7/ARMv8 platforms.

I prepared MiniMyth2 to run on Amlogic/Rockchip/Allwinner/Raspberry and at this moment we have available functionality like here: https://github.com/warpme/minimyth2#gen ... ctionality

Interested ppl can download images MiniMyth2 GitHub: https://github.com/warpme/minimyth2/releases

How to deploy MiniMyth2 on Your hw:
1. make sure you have DHCP server working ok
2. download SD card image from https://github.com/warpme/minimyth2/releases
3. unpack image
4. burn SD card Image to SD card (i.e. by balena etcher)
5. (optionally**) edit minimyth.conf file on /boot partition on SD card
5. insert card
6. connect Eth & power-on (if you are using WiFi - add SID/Pass in minimyth.conf file)
7. check mythtv audio & video configuration
8. enjoy(***)

(*)
For more info pls look here: https://github.com/warpme/minimyth2/wiki

(**)
If Your mythtv DB is on the same host where DHCP server runs & mythtv DB name/user/pass are: 'mythconverg’ / 'mythtv’ / 'mythtv’ then no any edits are needed in this file. If this is not a case - pls see below...

(***)
In case of any problems You may:
-go in web browser to frontend IP
-select „Logs” in top menu
-examine log to see here issue might be

Some notes:
Host-name for frontend will be:
-taken from DHCP server option "host-name"
-if server not provides hostname option - MiniMyth2 will use "Myth-Frontend-<MAC-address>" as hostname

If Your master backend has different IP that DHCP server - You may add "next-server" option in DHCP configuration.
It should point to IP address of master BE.
Alternatively You can edit settings in minimyth.conf file like described below for DB name/user/pass.

If Your DB name/user/pass are different than 'mythconverg’ 'mythtv’ ,mythtv’ - You may edit in minimyth.conf file on SD card boot FAT partition in settings:

MM_MASTER_SERVER=<DHCP_NEXT_SERVER address>
MM_MASTER_DBUSERNAME='mythtv'
MM_MASTER_DBPASSWORD='mythtv'
MM_MASTER_DBNAME='mythconverg'

Alternatively You can setup TFTP infrastructure where MiniMyth2 will download minimyth.config with appropriate settings.

happy watching
