I had not run apt-get upgrade (at least I dont remember running it), but when I tried to do it today on all mds and the core I got this curious message:

Code: [Select]

After that I did this:

Code: [Select]
dpkg-divert --package dash --divert /bin/sh.distrib --add /bin/sh
sudo apt-get install --reinstall bash dash
sudo apt-get upgrade

Everything then upgraded correctly and myth started working again on both mds.  Not sure if this really is a fix or not; but thats what happend...

Users / mythtv not starting on mds
« on: March 28, 2015, 05:43:25 am »
I have two mds and a core running 10.04; its been working great for a long time.  Suddenly one day myth (livetv) on one of the mds stopped working.  It would just get to the menu screen of myth and then suddenly return to the screen saver... (the other md worked fine)  now about one week later the other md is doing too.

Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot the situation?

Well I think i found the problem.  Im using /dev/video0 tuner for mythtv.  if I stop mythtv-backend, reload the cx18 drivers, start mythtv-backend and access the roku scenario everything sounds and looks great, but once I enter myth again the roku scenarios sound stop working..

Any ideas on what I could do to make these co-exists?

Found a problem with the HVR1600 template where device block isnt filled correctly (it should say /dev/video0) and it didnt say anything, and the port were configure wrong as well (they should have a 0 infront of the port number in extra paramters, 0 being the videoX number).

I'm trying to use template 2049 which is controlling the player correctly
I changed the media type to DVD so that the remote would be more accurate
and that also created the media scenarios that were not being created automatically
but I get no video on screen; i do get remote on orbiters and I can get video if I log in with x-forwarding, change the input via v4l2-ctl  and type mplayer /dev/video0.

 38 is the default audio on the capture card, but I see no video device id, video device id should be 32; and that is configure correctly for the device in webadmin -> A/V Equipment.

I though i understood what was going on, but now I'm confused again... Any help is much appreciated.

I commented out CheckVideoDriver in /etc/init.d/a0start_avwizard and verified that the ati drivers are installed.

Now when I run the avwizard the end of the log says:

 I have a poweredge 2850 with an Embedded ATI Radeon 7000-M
 AVWizard is not running :(
 /usr/bin/aticonfig: No supported adapters detected
 any ideas on what I could do to get it to work?
 apparently it defaults to: radeon
 and kde looks great with that driver
 but orbiter is acting funny

Users / old server proliant ml530 G1
« on: May 20, 2014, 04:20:25 pm »
I was given an old 2 processor proliant ml 530 g1 (http://www.sillworks.com/quickspecs_proliant_ML530G1.php) with scsi drives (5 discs running raid5) 2.5 gigs of ecc ram (PC133MHz Registered ECC SDRAM DIMM Module) power supply array, etc.

The installation went great (network install of 1004).  I was able to configure hdpvr, and two media directors. Everything seems stable and something expected to be slower, but I did not expect logging into a MD via ssh would take 1-2mins to login, playing a video from an MD would take 30-60 seconds to begin playing and 45 - 90 seconds from the moment myth starts to the moment the live stream begins. 

Am I missing something? Do you guys think this kinda of core hardware would cause this kinda of problem?  During these slow load times core CPU is not at 100%.

Any ideas on why some components are working slow while others (screensaver, zwave lights, router reloads, among oothers) work fine?

Is this really fixed? My camera recordings seem to be erased daily even though purge period is set to 5. Any ideas?
