I am not a programmer, but I am a problem solver. The recent update messed up my 'tweak' on the mythtv files on my MD... I can fix them in a few minutes, but I want to provide some feedback/input into getting it set to work correctly.
here is what I have figured out:
On the CORE, everything works great.. the /etc/mythtv/config.xml file and the /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt work great.
On the MD: there are several things Ive noticed:
1. the user mythtv needs to have the same uid and gid as the CORE's mythtv user (because the home folder is a nfs mount from the core)
2. Each MD gets a unique <Password> in the /etc/mythtv/config.xml (by default on mythtv install i am assuming) This <Password> can stay
what it is, but also needs to be the same as the DBPassword in the /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt file, AND it needs to be the same password for
the mysql user firstname.lastname@example.org
(MD iP address).
3. On any MD, the <Host> in /etc/mythtv/config.xml and DBHostname in /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt NEEDS to be dcerouter
Note: if the default password in /etc/mythtv/config.xml is used, it wont need to be changed in Mythtv Setup.
I can provide my files if anyone wants/needs to see them.
Hope this helps.
