(Solved) Having huge problems with MythTV DVB Sky S952 Firmware

Post by jbamford » Wed Jul 25, 2018 12:35 am

Hi,

Ive installed MythBuntu so i can setup my SAT tuner however im having nothing but problems with the frontend saying that it can connect to master, check that the IP Address is correct etc. i have reinstalled about 20 od times i cant seem to fix the problem ive spent hours googling and trying different things but no joy. its so annoying dont know what the problem is. Any ideas? Heres the output of the logs. Ive tried different IP address im out of ideas now.

Thanks.

Jack.

Hi,

Full logs are better. Putting the backend and frontend logs in a pastebin is good.

Assuming this is a current Mythbuntu, like 18.04, getting the status of the backend
is easy with: systemctl status mythtv-backend. It may not be running due to some
other issue. Until that's fixed, the frontend won't be able to connect.

A complete log would also have the MythTV version in it, as well as the location of
config.xml that's in play here.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. Ive just ran systemctl status mythtv-backend in terminal and this is the output,

I am running MythBuntu 16.04 because i cant get my DVBSky S952 running in anything newer than 16.04.

The log snippet above suggests the backend is running.

Need to see the full frontend log. Usually in /var/log/mythtv/mythfrontend.log

Look for a line similar to this and paste from there to the failure:

Code: Select all

...  mythfrontend version: master [v30-Pre-667-g36a1ff5a6f-dirty] www.mythtv.org

Sorry, that doesn't help. Lines like these (and others) are missing:

Code: Select all

2018-07-18 12:19:20.645213 I [7411/7411] CoreContext mythcontext.cpp:642 (LoadDatabaseSettings) - Empty LocalHostName. This is typical.

Look for the last instance of the version pattern mentioned in my last response and paste 'til
the failure.

Right so, the backend now comes online but theres another problem. If i go and watch a channel and i click on Watch now it says loading the loading windows goes but heres something interesting when checking on the tuners it says this Could not get card info for card /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0, Subtype Unknown Error. I have 4 Tuner cards and it says it on all of them yet dmessg clearly shows the cards are working?

Re: Having huge problems with MythTV

The most recent post above seems to say that both the backend and frontend(s?) are working.

If not, looks like there are actually two frontends having problems.

HTPC-Server looks like the name of the backend's host and in the above,
jackbamford-desktop is the name of a different host trying to start a frontend.

But failing with 'Failed to connect to (127.0.0.1:6543)' as mentioned in the initial post here.

Using mythtv-setup (probably mythtv-setup.real in Mythbuntu) what are the settings in
General for the master ip and server ip (sorry, I'm on v30-Pre and don't have the actual
names.)

A full backend log should show what IPs are actually in play here.

By the way, my systemctl status mythtv-backend looks like this:

Code: Select all

(you don't need the Drop-In section, at least right now.)
As to the DVB card, I'd strongly suggest a new topic with a more specific Subject,
maybe: 'DVBSky S952 Not Working' because folks here may have already marked this
thread read. Plus, I'm not familiar with that card or any SAT for that matter.

Hi thanks for your reply. I reinstalled and forgot to change the name at install. This is the only MythTV machine. Ignore the name change. Im going to try another Distro instead of MythBuntu. I think personally it could be kernel related with the card if anything.

Hi,

Yes. I had to build the Firmware for the Kernel im running for the DVB Sky S952. One thing to mention is that the latest Firmware you find on the DVB Sky S952 only supports Kernels from 4.1.12 to 4.4.0. Latest Version of Ubuntu doesnt work as compiling and building the firmware for the card fails for 4.15 kernels. I re-sorted to Ubuntu 14.04 with kernel 4.4.0 this doesnt really bother me about running 14.0.4. But for other people future proof. for Kernels from 4.1.12 to 4.4.0 requires media_build-bst-160430. Could you please change the Subject to Having huge problems with MythTV DVB Sky S952 Firmware problem.

Thank you.

Im one happy chap.
