Error parsing parameters

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

Hi,

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

Klaus

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

Anyone got any logs with the exact error message?

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

https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Config.xml

I know I had a problem with the current user:
/home/myloginname/.mythtv/config.xml

not matching up with:
/etc/mythtv/config.xml

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