MythTV 0.23.1 on Slackware64 13.1 problems to get it running


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

Your myth setup is not complete. You need to add channels, and update the database. I'd double check the Howto at Mythtv.org and make sure you've completed all the steps.

disturbed1 thanks for your reply. I got past the last step thanks to the instructions (howto) on mythtv.org but now I fear that I am facing a bigger problem... I go to Watch TV and I see the big "1" screen and then some writing (channel data I believe) and then the HDTV goes black and after a few seconds I get a popup saying "Failed to reinitialize video output". Launching mythfrontend in terminal will allow to collect this data:

You need to setup your playback profile on the frontend. From the log, it appears you've chosen to use xvmc, but that decoder is not available. If you were using an Nvidia card with VDPAU, use that profile, otherwise (For your ATI card), try xv, opengl, or another playback layer. http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/VDPAU#Supported_Cards

Seems that doing what you recommended worked, but now I need to play around the sound system as I have no sound at all...

there is tons of functions in this application. I will need some time to play around and get used to all... Like right now its recording all the time.

Unfortunately the video card has dramatic performance probably due to ATI horrible drivers.

That was the hardest part for me when we first started using MythTV. There's just too many options, and it's quite easy to select the wrong ones. Thankfully, once you find the right settings combination, you never need to touch them again.
Our Backend and Frontends run non stop for 60 day periods at a time, without ever needing user intervention. We shut the systems down every 60 days to blow out dust from the fans.

Nvidia cards are currently the best choice - bar none - for multimedia playback. The GT9400 plays back 1080p h264 movies on our lowly Celeron e1400 without using more than 10% cpu. Plus the added benefit of hardware (VDPAU) deinterlacing, detelecine, color correction, resizing, and noise reduction, you can't go wrong with Nvidia and VDPAU.

ATI is getting on my nerves... I might just replace the ATI card by a Nvidia card...

Is that normal that Mythtv records everything all the time? when I enter live tv, I can hear my hdd work intermittently to record everything and changing channels is jerky due to hdd activity and recording to different files...

There is no such a thing as "live" TV. Myth records the station to disk, then streams that recorded content to the frontend. This is how the PVR functionality works. If Myth was not recording, you would not be able to pause, rew, or ff, live TV. This is the same function as cable provided DVRs, TiVOs and other STB DVRs.

I am closing this thread since:

1-I learned a lot with it

2-MythTV is properly setup and running.

Thanks disturbed1!
