Adding a slave backend

Post by jameswilson1977 » Thu Aug 15, 2019 8:07 pm

I have 4 dvbt2 usb tuners on my master but want to add a dvbs card. I have 2 but they are pci and for some reason when plugged in prevents the master from posting. So I have another spare i7 box with an intel desktop board so built it up.
I had another thread where this box wouldn't scan but that is now resolved.
The slave knows about the master and the master knows abouyt the slave. The channels scanned are showing in the guide, but with no epg data and status shows
Encoder 1 [ UNKNOWN ] is remote on myth-slave1 (currently not connected).
Encoder 2 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
Encoder 3 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
Encoder 4 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter2/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
Encoder 5 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter3/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
Encoder 6 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
Encoder 7 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
Encoder 8 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
Encoder 9 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
Encoder 10 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter2/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
Encoder 11 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter2/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
Encoder 12 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter3/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
Encoder 13 [ DVB : /dev/dvb/adapter3/frontend0 ] is local on myth-master and is not recording.
when I started the slave was on dhcp but is not on a static ip.
Not knowing what to do now to add this tuner so it works correctly via the master backend.

changed config.xml to use the myth master ip and it seems to work
But myth frontend is incredibly slow. Live tv no longer works either
But it is recording from the slave.
How do I trackdown why its so slow. Also checkeing the backend status takes an age?

Try this: journalctl --no-pager --boot --unit mythtv-backend.service

Without the --no-pager switch the lines are truncated to fit the number of columns
on the screen. Or, you may find logs in /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log (depends on
you logging is setup in the service.) systemctl cat mythtv-backend will answer that.

I'd look at the journal on the remote backend 1st with similar commands.

would appear the issue is with the slave backen
The fact its timing out, it not sleeping is on the same switch as the master?

Hi,

Not sure about the question above. I can tell you that I've had a slave backend running two
"switches away" from the master backend.

Sorry
I was meaning it looks like the timeout is what's causing the issue. How do I fix that?

Unfortunately, there are about 90 calls to the WriteStringList method. That error
fires when the list is empty.

On the remote backend:

If you do the sytemctl cat above and you see EnvironmentFile=-/etc/mythtv/additional.args,
add to or create that file with: ADDITIONAL_ARGS="--loglevel debug" and restart the
slave backend. See if that log has more clues.

Also, is the remote backend wired or WiFi?
