I have a mythbuntu backend that is accessed by a win7 HTPC running Kodi 14.2.

I am about to build (re: install os) another HTPC for TV number 2.

I have very little Linux skills.

+Dave Allred​ I have not used kodi, but I would think you could access the videos with mythbuntu frontend.

I'm taking the plunge (under protest :) to Digital Cable. BellAliant has provided me with a Motorola Viper 2262 set top box. I've purchased a serial IR Blaster. I've manually captured the ir codes using irrecord but I can't seem to get my mythtv box to change the channels on the stb. Anyone have a similar stb and success getting mythtv .27 integrated with it?

I'm having trouble recording a couple of shows. I pick "record only this showing" and then record and then it updates and goes back to "do not record this program". I have deleted all previous episodes of this and the other title that won't record and the "schedule" and still it persists. Any thoughts? They are both re-runs by the way but I've never seen them. Another thought... it will record on the non-hd channel, but on the hd channel it will never record, no matter which setting you set for it. It is in hd, but the channel listing doesn't show "hd". If I select "record at any time on any channel" it will automatically record on the non-hd channel and never on the hd channel. If I select "this channel" it will also not record. This is really frustrating! The only way I can watch these shows in hd, is live tv!

I tried everything but in the end the only thing that worked was to hit record in live tv from the listings. Weird....

I hate to bring this up again, but I'm having problems recording a series again. I selected "find and record one showing of this title". I get the first week recorded and then the 2nd week it says "this showing will be recorded earlier". The problem is, this is the very first showing of this episode. I tried, "new showing" "HD" etc with the same result. Any ideas?

The wording is confusing... I agree on that.

I'd like to know if anyone in the NJ area currently has Fios and a mythtv setup with a HD home run prime. I have also ordered a HD pvr 1212. I'm mostly concerned with making sure the HD home run prime will work. There are other things I'd like to get worked out but I want to start with this. Thanks for the help.

In the past I've setup a user job for http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Lossless_Cut which I somehow setup to run for every newly scheduled recording, i.e. both the ones via  the epg, or recordings from Live-TV by pressing "record" on the remote.

I guess I used http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/User_Manual:Detailed_configuration_Frontend#General_.28Jobs.29 and the "Run User Job" checkboxes.

Well, now I've wanted to disable running that user job by default, but that part of the frontend configuration is gone, does anyone know where I can change these settings? (no problem if I have to change something in the DB, but I can't find the proper place in a cursory search)
The frontend process is responsible for anything that requires interaction such as Watching Recorded Programs or Watching TV. It provides the GUI you use on your TV or monitor as well as the LIRC, keyboard, or other input handling for Frontend Navigation. The frontend can be configured by going ...

Ok, so I found it! It's in the frontend, in managing recording rules, there is the default recording template which can be edited (but only in the frontend, not via mythweb, which doesn't support this).

It's actually a "key new feature" according to http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Release_Notes_-_0.26 but I really haven't noticed before, using mythweb most of the time for scheduling recordings.

Anyway, +Brad Stone, thanks for the help and pointing me in the right direction, even if it was in a round-about way. :)

This is what the back end status looks like on my MythTV using HD home run.  Both tuners are present and can record 2 programs at the same time.

+Eric Koester​ -> in the backend setup. Under the capture card you will find a submenu called recording options where there is a max recordings setting

Anybody else catch it from Schedules Direct?  I configured scheduling as 0 and 23 and defaulted to have grabber pick the time.  Unfortunately it always did the scheduling update at 12:01 am.  That wasn't the best thing for SD.

Good.  I got the same email and checked my Myth settings and it shouldn't have been hitting at midnight.

UPDATE 3/3/2015:FIXED.... SEE BELOW POSTS...
Everything is running great lately! However one of my friends is ahving this problem and I noticed that I get the same error. Anyone else have this when trying to stream from mythweb? "Not Found - The requested URL /mythweb.php/http://mythweb.pl/pl/stream/ was not found on this server." I know it used to work and is probably a bug in Apache2. I have tried the suggestions on here without any luck: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/MythWeb

I recently installed Mythbuntu giving me a master backend on which I can record (viewable using a local frontend), usually remotely controlled using VNC viewer..
I can set recordings using Mythweb and see the results in as a list but I can't download the files: "The requested URL /mythweb/mythweb.pl/pl/stream/2290/1426201200 was not found on this server."
I can get the files manually but have to use VNC viewer and work out which recordings are which and manually rename them.

Anyone else having this problem?

Hello,

does anybody know a way to update the hash of a movie file in the DB from the command line?

My use case: I want to remove some additional audio tracks from a couple of MKVs and don't want to redo the whole metadata in MythTV manually, but update the hash in the DB for the corresponding filename myself.

Ok, I just looked at how MythTV does it, and the result is a small programm (basically just a wrapper around the function call FileHash), see https://gist.github.com/wolfgangkarall/d96b181292738e0278d8

Edit: I suppose that would be interesting to add to mythutil, but I don't have time for that now.

Any long time mythtv users having issues with 14.04 that were not present in 12.04? Or is it just me? I've reloaded the backend 3 times now since moving to 14.04 (for various issues). Now I'm getting "irrecoverable recorder error" and live tv won't work. It seems like i'm having to do way to much tinkering to keep things working now. UPDATE: EVERYTHING IS FIXED NOW (I THINK!). THANKS TO ALL WHO HELPED!

+Roger Hammer​​​​ i'm an idiot... Frontend was jacked up only running 14.04 and backend running 14.04.1. Reloaded the frontend, upgraded firmware on the hdhr prime and it is purring like a kitten again. If only i could shut down the frontend from the menu. Just pops back to the menu after selecting "exit and shutdown". If i could do that, then i would be able to power up and shutdown from the couch.
UPDATE: i finally got that figured out too.... Now i don't have to get up to turn anything on and off!

Just built a fresh Mythbuntu 14.04 box, served by two HDHomerun tuners on the network. MythTV version is 0.27.4   I have a current Schedules Direct account which is linked to the two HDHRs.  Everything works, I can browse live TV channels, etc.  However, I am not seeing any program guide data. 

I know about the changes described here... http://www.mythtv.org/news/163/Notice%20to%20Schedules%20Direct%20users , and I'm already on 0.27.4, as recommended. 

Any ideas of where I'm going wrong?
