1. Mythfrontend does not save settings. I have changed a few things in the front end, in particular the scaling of the video image as negative percents. These parameters are not saved, even when I exit the frontend setup gracefully.
Ensure that auto configuration is turned off for mythtv, lots of the scripting is broken and may be over-writing your settings.
2. Cannot install a Logitech Quickcam. There is a wiki page for this here:
I followed the instructions, substituting "**PWC Camera Drivers" for "PWC Camera Drivers" in the instructions. Only the ** version appeared in the dropdown when building the device template. The motion wrapper seems to work fine: I get a grey square with some text overlayed when I choose the camera in the Security scenario. The LED on the camera does not illuminate, as it did when I have this same camera connected to my old 810 installation. I think this means that the camera driver is not working.
The PWC driver was discontinued in 2006 and has failed to build since 1004.
3. The system has still not discovered my Denon 2307 receiver over RS-232. The discovery script does not seem to be running. How can I initiate it? As indicated by Phenigma in an earlier post, there is a question about the syntax in the discovery script, assuming that I can get the script to run again.
I'd forgotten about that. With a quick second look I think the scripts are okay logic wise, although have a strange use of $?. Perhaps you can create a issue in gitlab with your findings from the scripts so far. I can then see what I get from my Denon.
