Users / Re: Any solutions for disappearing mythtv frontend?

Thanks tkmedia!  I successfully installed Knoppmyth (after some drive reasignments) and it's working!  Now all I need to do is figure out how to set the screen resolution so that it displays full screen on my HDTV set, and also uses sda1 instead of hda1 (where Knoppmyth is installed) for storing video.  sda1 is a 300Gb SATA but hda1 is only a 40Gb IDE so I don't have much space for recording yet but at least it is working!!!

I'm having the same gray screen problem.  I just reinstalled everything after messing up my Media Director and not getting any support from fellow forum members on how to get it added back.  Anyway, before I messed up my Media Director I could get Mythtv running by starting mythfrontend from a terminal window but now I've reinstalled everything I can't even do that.  Now it complains about not finding the backend.  I'm new to all this so I'm not sure how to get the backend running, but it seems that on the first install LinuxMCE was at least starting the backend but the frontend was failing on startup. 

I spent a lot of money on getting great hardware for this project and was full of anticipation of great TV/DVR functionality, but I've been working on it for 3 weeks now and I'm beginning to think that MythTV is just that...a myth!

Problem solved!  It's simple really.  Just reformat the hard drive and reinstall everything!  I love brute force... so much simpler than trying to figure out the problem! LOL

OK. I was able to add my A/V equipment, but when I add a Media Director or Orbiter they never show up in the list and when I reload or reboot all I get is what appears to be the backend reporting that it successfully checked both my disks.

Anyone have any idea what's going on here???  Why can't I add a Media Director???

I lost the front end somehow.  It was working but I did something in Pluto and now when it starts I just get the back end!  Help!

This is on a clean install and seemed to finish succfully but I was getting the gray/black screen problem mentioned on other posts.  I went into Plato and I think somehow I deleted the front end (Orbiter/Media Director?).  Anyway, I tried adding Media Directors and Orbiters back in but nothing shows up in the list of devices after I close the window. Now all I get on the screen are a couple of messages about completed disk checks. I can't figure out how to get the Orbiter/Media Directoe back!  I did start X and fire up mythfrontend and that works, but nothing happens in MCE.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
