Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mythtv Frontend Can't Find Scanned Channels

Oct 21, 2010

I can't get mythtv to play television with my Hauppauge HVR-850 tv card. I was able to view tv in mplayer, so I know that the card is working. The tv signal is broadcast only (no cable). I had to set the card type to DVB DTV capture card (v3.x) to get mythtv-setup to successfully scan. I was able to successfully scan both with a "full scan" and with a channels.conf file that I had generated earlier when tinkering tv in mplayer. Unfortunately, the mythtv frontend failed to play any live tv. It said "Error: MythTV is using all inputs, but there are no active recordings?"

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.

OpenSUSE :: Get Channels Scanned In Kaffeine OSS 11.3?

Nov 9, 2010

I had a look at No TV in Kaffeine, but I'm lost. I have an HDTV wonder card. I have installed dvb, ffmpeg, w32-codecs, etc. I am able to watch video/hear audio.

I have updated the scan data in kaffeine, adjusted device 1 tab to my area, but when I open the channels window and scan, it just goes through the motions and lists nothing. Here i partial output from:

Ubuntu / Apple :: 10.04 & MythTV Frontend On IBook G4 - No Sound And Video On Playback

Jun 8, 2010

I set up Ubuntu on an old iBook G4, planning to use it as a front end to my main box. Installed 10.04 no problem, and from there, used Software Center to install MythTV Front end. Have done the same thing on a netbook, no problem.

However, on this PPC Mac, the front end works fine, navigation, menus, etc, until I try to play a recorded programme - the screen is blank, and I just get white noise from the speakers.

(BTW am trying Ubuntu as I don't have a Mac OS new enough to get any of the current Mac MythFrontEnd builds working)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: MythTV Backend Can't Find Capture Card?

Feb 7, 2010

I'm trying to setup Mythbuntu on a computer connected to a TV. I have bought an USB DVB-T Receiver, named WandTV. According to LinuxTV; WandTV, aka Shenzhen Forward Video EzTV859, is supported in the Linux kernel.

When I try to setup the mythTV backend I'm being asked of what card type I have. I guess the answer to that is "DVB DTV capture card (v3.x)", but no matter what I choose, it can't find any devices.

I'm pretty sure /dev/hidraw0 is the receiver, can I use that to setup the backend?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gnome Radio - Doesn't Find Any Radio Channels And The Input Channel Is Completely Wrong

May 1, 2010

I have a new install of Karmic on my system with a flyvideo 3000 tv card installed. My problem is that it doesn't find any radio channels and the input channel is completely wrong. I don't have any sound on gnomeradio and can't find the config files to change the input channel. The only input option available to me is dig1 - can anyone point me in the right direction?

I have already read the Howto for this tv card and changed the device to radio0 in the setup. I have setup tvtime perfectly with sound channel as well as with a 5.1 surround configuration. I am missing my favourite radio channel. and I want to get rid of my windows installations once and for all! Update: I did a system update and some things have changed: the radio tower graphic on gnomeradio is now green (I assume it is getting a signal) but no sound yet.

CentOS 5 :: Create Channels To Sync Yum Repos And Smart Channels?

Jun 24, 2010

I've installed RPMforge and Smart Package Manager.

I had to create my own Centos 5.5 channels to sync yum repos and smart channels.

Here's the Centos 5.5 channel file for Smart:

Just shut Smart PM down, copy this file into /etc/smart/channels, and restart smart.

Smart should then detect the new channels (repos) for Centos 5.5

Update your channels in Smart, and you should then have yum repos and smart channels both in sync, looking at the same set of packages.

Copy this to CentOS-Base.channel, and add it to the /etc/smart/channels directory.

# CentOS-Base.repo
# The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the
# update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and

Hardware :: HVR-1600 Unable To Find Channels

Aug 9, 2010

I am running the current Mythdora and using the latest drivers and firmware todate, or at least what is listed on the HVR1600 wiki page. I can't lock on to any channels no matter what with this installation. Shouldn't it work after confirmation of drivers loaded and firmware upadated? Below I have outputed basic information. I did try a previous version of mythdora and it was able to find and lock to channels provided by my cable service, but had a bad driver so I updated everything.

Another person posted that he swaped pci slots with this tuner card and it worked. [URL]I think I am missing something. I also would add I have two coaxial inputs. Analog and Digital. I am currently using the TV one. I also did a cat /dev/video0 > ./Desktop/test.mpg and it was static. Does anyone have some ideas? I am all ears!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Frontend Crashes / Does Not Start After Booting

Jun 7, 2010

I have installed mythbuntu 10.04. It worked well for a few days. Now my frontend does not start or crashes just after booting. You can see the frontend background for a few seconds but the menu does not load. After that, the mythtv window disappears and you can see the ubuntu desktop. Here are the last few lines from the log file:

Software :: Get Mythtv To Find Channel 4 On Hauppauge 250 Pvr Card?

Nov 8, 2010

I have an old Fisher VHS player with the old 'antenna' connection [one wire] to the TV. It does still work. I connect this to an old Hauppauge 250 pvr card in a box running Ubuntu 10-10.

I want to be able to put old tapes on my disk drive.

Working mainly with MythTv, I can not get it to work. The hardware seems to be working as I have options for tuner1 and other inputs. As channel 4 is no longer 'broadcast' I can't scan for it even with the VCR running.

Would someone please hold my hand an provide the necessary steps to get MythTv working or an alternative.

I have read the five similar threads and numerous other google hits but can't find what I need. Part of my problem is I am also new to Ubuntu and jumping in an out of terminal sessions is no where near what I grew up with in Slackware.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Channels Cannot Be Found Using DVB-S

Apr 11, 2011

I am setting up a MythTV environment to switch from Windows based MediaPortal (with a high number of disturbing bugs). Yet, I have three difficulties, which I want to discuss with you. They are:

- No audio via HDMI [URL]
- Video resolution seems to change during video playback [URL]
- Channels cannot be found via DVB-S

As you can see, I have created three posts to keep discussions focused.

Alltogether I have the following setup:

- AMD 5050e CPU
- 8 GByte RAM
- Biostar TA890GXE
- Samsung LE40M86BD, connected via HDMI (and only HDMI)
- Mythbuntu 10.10 with proprietary drivers installed
- Technisat Skystar HD2 DVB-S card (two times)

Now, here is the problem:

when I try to scan for any available satellite channels to use in Myth, I cannot find any channels. I have invoked "scan -V -l UNIVERSAL -s 1 -a 0 /usr/share/dvb/dvb-s/Astra-19.2E" with the following result:

scanning /usr/share/dvb/dvb-s/Astra-19.2E

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Why The Capture Channels Are Enabled

Basically, capturing the microphone works and it's sent to Mumble, however everybody also hears my desktop sound. I tried adjusting channels in KMix with no luck. Also i don't understand why the capture channels are enabled and must stay at minimum volume...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Center/LFE - Other Channels Work - 10.04 / X-Fi

Apr 11, 2010

It doesn't matter if I set the audio to 5.1 or 7.1, the center and LFE are silent. I had the same problem in 9.10 but I could work around by using the alsamixer to set the center to 90%, quit, then set back to 100%. This doesn't work in 10.04 as the controls in the alsamixer can't be changed. Is there any way I can get the center channel working? All I can do at the moment is set the sound properties to 4.0 so that the center channel is automatically redistributed to the other channels, but that isn't a great solution.

The right soundcard drivers are installed (for Creative Sound Blaster Platinum Live Drive). Earlier versions of KMix worked just fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audio [Swapped Channels - Crappy Sound]

Dec 8, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and it got really nice interface and is pretty user friendly, but I got an issue directed to sound. I have used Ubuntu 9 last time and had the same problems. So here are my problems: I got Realtek AC'97 ALC655 on-board sound card with 5.1 support and hardware mixing. By reading posts on google and this forums I got an idea it should work OOB but it won't.

The issues: *when I set the sound output to 5.1 + 1 stereo input it makes all the speakers work but act in weirdo way and testing the each speaker confuses me even more, because it's like(test=real sound source):

subwoofer=frontright. o.O

*the sound quality is crappy, it feels like it is old radio player because it requires some seconds for sound to 'condensate' and play normally with some crackles and other distortions.. And I'd like to also ask what sound system is mainly used in Ubuntu? Is it alsa,pulse or OSS? Since I can't find a way to see it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Tunapie2 Won't Display Any Shoutcast Radio Channels

i am trying to list radio channels in Tunapie2 and it won't list anything. It will display TV stations, but not radio.

I removed the software and Re-installed it with the same problem. I even removed most files from my .tunapie folder under my home and just left prefs and favorites alone. I did this before re-installing the software.

Icecast works fine, but not Shoutcast Radio.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Internal Sound Card To Work On 5.1 Channels

I had a problem getting my internal sound card to work on 5.1 channels and investigated the links and information given in the various threads and found that there are slight differences from the references to what I had to do. Firstly, it's a good idea to read through these links first.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Get_iplayer With 11.3 - STREAMING Live BBC Channels

It seems the "modes" I am and have been using are not recognised. I use gnome and installed codecs using codecs_gnome.ymp for suse 11.3. I have no problem with any of the multimedia applications I use.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Viable Alternatives To Mythtv?

May 8, 2010

Are there any viable alternatives to mythtv? I find the setup to be very cumbersome and the keyboard interface is a poor second to Windows Media Player for a basic PVR system on a desktop computer.

Mythtv seems an overkill for what I require, just to simply watch TV using my DVB-T input and record shows when I'm away from home.
