DVB card and MythTV
I have a Dvico FusionHDTV DVB-T lite card. It works correctly with Kaffine, I can watch all the local channels perfectly. I can pause live tv, and schedule recordings.
I have tried to install MythTV - unfortunately, it doesn't work. MythTV starts, and presents me with the menu. When I select "Watch TV", I get a blank screen and returned to the menu after a few seconds. The output of mythfrontend in the terminal is:
Does anyone have any ideas what I have done wrong?
Hi Ian, I'm new to mythtv myself and i don't run this dvb card but i think i may be able to help.
I see you must have mysql running since I see you have connected to a db. However are you running mythbackend?
Have you run mythtv-setup? Also you are running 0.18, have you tried 0.19?
If you have not tried 0.19 i suggest making 0.18 work first since I can only scan for new channels with 0.18 (so make a backup of your mysql db when you've got it working!!)
run $mythbackend and post the output of this, if it works fine, leave mythbackend running all the time ($mythbackend --daemon) and then run mythfrontend from any pc on the network ;)
Hope this helps
I assumed that mythbackend would start automatically since it was in /etc/init.d. For some reason, it wasnt. After I ran mythbacked manually, everything now works perfectly. For some reason, mythbackend now starts automatically.
Glad to be of service; enjoy possibly the best tv program of all time!
Yes i agree with you mythbackend is also in /etc/init.d on my server, however if i look at the boot log it always says something along the lines of
services skipped at runlevel 3: mythbackend
apparently for you the --daemon has changed this?
Oh well, everything works so just follow the computing golden rule- if it works; leave it :D
All the best
