Fedora :: Using Yum To Install Older Version Of Software (MythTV)?

Apr 25, 2011

I've got a MythTV 0.23 backend and I'm trying to get the frontend working on my Fedora box, but by default yum installs 0.24 which has a different database model and so won't work with a 0.23 backend. I've got the RPM for 0.23 but it has a bunch of dependencies so I need to track down the RPMS for those, too, so I was wondering if I can do this in yum? I've seen an old thread about installing a yum-allowdowngrade package but that doesn't seem to be available any more.

Fedora :: Using The Pulseaudio Device In Mythtv?

May 31, 2010

I have a fedora13 version that upgraded mythtv to 0.23. Since that time, I've had sound problems. Mostly the sound has stopped working completely, but works with all other applications. Every once in a while the sound will work.

My sound device is ALSA:default and I have experimentally allow pulseaudio in my environment. This worked fine before the mythtv upgrade. I tried using the pulseaudio device in mythtv, but it works really poorly (lots of loud static).

Fedora :: Difference Between A Package And Its -devel Equivalent?

Mar 19, 2010

Am just wondering what the notion is behind having a package without all needed files, and having a -devel package with the rest. Such that whenever am installing a package fron tarball, and it says it cannot get a package, I always install the -devel equivalent and all gets to be OK. Why dont they just have everything in the original package?

Fedora :: Setting Crontab Or Equivalent On Network?

Aug 14, 2011

I have been using a private computer on my departmental network. I am now in the process of switching to the public system. This is a system of different computers, each of which mounts the same homeserver directories for users. One may login to any of these machines and see the same home directory. The department is running a clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux called Scientific Linux. It is not a lot different from Fedora Linux.

I copied a crontab entry form my private machine and ran crontab -e on one of these computers. I suppose it will now do what needs doing, but what if I need to change the entry or add other entries. I will have to search around for the one computer on which crontab is running. Is there some global network way to do the same thing, i.e., so that I can edit the crontab entries from any machine in the public network?

Fedora :: "python-gnome2-desktop" Equivalent In F12?

Mar 12, 2010

I'd like to try a gnome applet named DockbarX. It has some dependecies, and it lists them by their debian package names. I couldn't find an equvivalent package for "python-gnome2-desktop". I suppose it contains python bindings for gnome. Can some help me? Also, is there a general naming pattern that helps with guessing package names?

Debian :: Running MythTV On Sid?

Feb 12, 2010

Is anybody running MythTV on Sid, or squeeze or lenny for that matter? I ask because I am trying to set MythTV up on a fresh debian install. I had (and can put back) KnoppMyth, but it's getting a bit long in the tooth (I've got R5F27, from 2007). That said I know that my hardware works, I'm just having trouble getting said hardware to work on this fresh install.

I've tryed following this Howto: Installing MythTV on Debian Etch - MythTV which did not work for a lenny install. I wound up with an PnUP error I coudl not sort out. I then installed sid, and followed this Howto: Installing MythTV SVN on Debian Sid - MythTV which failed too. I was unable to get past installing the ivtv drivers, as per this Howto: Howto:Debian - IVTV, the building and installing the modules part. Some errorin the source files I could not sort out. I then I tryed a combination of the two, which is where I'm at right now.

I did a fresh netinstall, upgraded to sid. Installed mysql, nVIDIA drivers and ivtv drivers & firmware from the sid repos. Next I installed MythTV from the debian-multimedia sid repos. Configured the mythbackend, filled the database, and configured the mythfrontend. alas, I can not get any TV out put. I'm pretty sure it's my Hauppauge PVR-150 TV Tuner card that is the issue, but I'm at wits end in trying to sort it out.

OpenSUSE :: Get Best TV Recorder (SageTV, MythTV)?

Oct 14, 2009

I have about a dozen computers in my house. They range from a web server to a file server to desktops and laptops to a Nokia N810. All run Linux except one -- my SageTV system.

A while back I began to install MythTV in the form of Mythbuntu. I didn't get far. I didn't want to invest the time to deal with all the installation issues that came up. But that nagging desire to get rid of my last MS Windows box persists.

After my recent great experience installing openSUSE on my Thinkpad, I feel renewed interest in looking for a Linux PVR solution again. My openSUSE experience on my Thinkpad is just blowing my mind. It is so polished. The installer was so good!

Can I possibly find a Linux PVR solution that will install as nicely as openSUSE did on my Thinkpad T61p? Or have my expectations been set too high now?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No TV In MythTV Frontend?

Feb 11, 2011

After overcomming a lot of difficulties, my MythTV (Via Epia 10000EG with Hauppauge PVR 500 card) worked with Mythbuntu 9.04. Last year it crashed and I had no time to spare to rebuild it.

Last couple of weeks I had more time and downloaded and tried to install Mythbuntu 10.10. Everything seems to be installed ok, but I get no picture in MythTV when I select "Watch TV" and no picture when I try to record something. When watching TV, the message "Please wait" appears for appr. 5 secs and then the system returns to the menu.

I installed Mythbuntu 10.10 and am using the provided IVTV drivers.

Dmesg and lspci give no errors, every seems to be in order, IVTV drivers are loaded, initialized and errorfree. Cat /dev/video0 gives me static in MPLAYER. The MythTV backendlog doesn't even give a message, the frontend log just says there is no picture...

There seems to be an error between the back and frontend. I checked the settings in capturecards, TV sources, channel edits, etc,etc, but I can't find it.

How do I go about getting this working? --I'm trying to make sure the card works before I mess with myth-setup anymore.

Note: in MythTV I don't get the "Scan Channels" option, so I'm not sure what to do there.Note: Cable source is my college campus cable.

Software :: MythTV 0.23.1 On Slackware64 13.1 To Get It Running?

Nov 28, 2010

I just installed mythtv 0.23.1 on my slack64 13.1 machine using a Hauppauge DVR-2250 TV tuner card. The install went fine (no errors) but I am facing a few glitches. I setup the program using mythtv-setup.

I added the tv tuner in the program's tuner list and scanned the channels using the scan feature. It found something like 38 channels (OTA). So far so good. When I start the application I go to watch TV and I see a white/black screen with a big "1" saying :Playback starting" and then it goes back to the application's menu. here's the output of mythbackend while I was playing around witht he front end

Debian Configuration :: Screensaver Starting During Mythtv?

Feb 20, 2011

I have my secreensaver just set to black screen after 10min but I had to disable it because the black screen starts up while watching recorded TV & videos on VLC. I don't usually install "gnome" or gnome-desktop-base or whatever it is. I always install "gnome-core" only. Squeeze has the screensaver installed with the gnome-core package by default so I can't leave it out like I usually do as this screensaver issue has been a problem for me since Sarge.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: MythTV So Hard To Configure?

Jan 9, 2010

I've been at this for the last hour. I just put a Hauppage WinTV-TVR-1800 into my machine, rebooted and installed MythTV. I set up the card, the video source and the input as well as configured a few random channels. I click WATCH TV in the menu, it goes to a screen saying, "Please Wait....", then it brings me back to the menu. There's no error, is there some sort of log file.

Here it is run in the terminal:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Get Sound In MythTV?

Jan 22, 2010

MB: Gigabyte 790XTA-UD4 boards, with internal sound
4Gig Mem, Phenom II CPU, 1 TB HD
HD in: 2 pc5500 TV cards
HD Out: GeForce GT240 out,

I'm getting very frustrated, having dropped a substantial (for me) amount of money trying to get a DVR setup, and Myth TV has punished me every step of the way.At this point, the extreme frustration is that sound *was* working earlier - not going to the TV via HDMI (Which seems like it should be easy but I've yet to get it to work) but I had speakers working - right up to the instant I installed restricted extra's to run mp3's - the instant I got totem to play sound, I completely lost all sound from myth TV, even playing back digital files it has recorded have no sound now.

alsamixer seems to have been used numerous times to fix these issues, but doesn't actually show as a valid package when I check the repository - I installed the gnome version instead, but nothing I do there seems to have any effect.I'm not entirely sure if I need/should be using the patch from the pc5500 cards into the sound card line in - as near as I can tell, that's only for analog signals, and it *was* running happily without it.

As mentioned - sound is fine from everything else, but even playing a recorded file I have no sound playback (Note: I had not recorded anything I can verify *had* sound before). I've gone through various guides, and I got nuthin'. All the actual cards and hardware have every appearance of working.
