I tried to follow your advice but it didn't work. Turns out something else is going on. I deleted all the tables for mythconverg and ran mythtv-setup for a fresh install and that also failed, so my problem apparently has nothing to do with exporting or importing the database. I did a full fresh install and rebooted the computer and it still failed with a message, "Attempting to connect to master back end." followed by a failure of, "Unable to connect to master back end." As usual, I disabled all software firewall software because I am behind a NAT and don't need the hassle.
I have tried to resolve the hostname issue using the following command but still not working:
Code: Select all
sed -i 's/old-text/new-text/g' input.sql
This is frustrating because I am able to connect to MariaDB with two usernames:
'mythtv'@'localhost' and 'mythtv'@'%' with the same default password of "mythtv" yet the frontend can't seem to connect to the backend database on "localhost" or via my tablet. Both 'mythtv'@'localhost' and 'mythtv'@'%' have full privilages over mythconverg but it just doesn't work, the backend just refuses to start! So it turns out to have nothing to do with my sql file, but mythtv just doesn't want to work on CentOS 7 or the latest version of Ubuntu. I can't figure it out and Christmas movies are coming soon that I want to record OTA and Spectrum cable only allows me to record up to two channels at once
Frustrating !!! I have a beautiful antenna on my roof with 6 network tuners that can provide up to 18 digital streams for recording or watching, pointing directly to TV towers on nearby mountains that I can actually see with my eye. My hardrives burnt out so I have to start all over again, but at least I have db backups that I can't use because mythTV doesn't work even as a fresh install. Ignoring the backup and starting fresh still fails. What is going on?!
MikeB2013 do you have any more suggestions? Or anyone else, help?
Thanks in advance
