MAIN QUESTION: How do fellow LinuxMCE users configure MythTV for first time use? (mythtv-setup)
- I've recently learned about /usr/pluto/bin/Restart_MythBackend.sh
How is a user supposed to run mythtv-setup if mythtv-backend can't be stopped without Restart_MythBackend doing its thing?
- In my case, in Belgium, using dvb-t and a Hauppauge HVR-4000 we have to use a workaround to get program information into mythconverg (mc2xml)
- With the new myth 0.22 version, multiple frontends are supported (THANK YOU!!)
However, after killing restart_mythbackend, after stopping myth-backend and entering mythtv-setup, I am
100% able to choose the correct /dev/dvb/adapterN/frontendN. Problem is the adapter is not recognized, so scanning channels is impossible.
- When leaving myth-setup there is a warning like:
"Path /home/user_1/data/pvr does not exist" solve?This path off course does exist, but the initial user has no permission...
There is a common misconception, especially for people who are familiar with mythtv, about how to run mythtv-setup in LinuxMCE. I got stock on this for a long time.
In LinuxMCE mythtv-setup should always be run from the 'Computing' menu in orbiter.
If you do this it will run with the proper permissions and some LinuxMCE script additions will deal with things like Restart_MythBackend automatically for you. Your file permissions issue with /home/user_1/data/pvr should also be taken care of by running mythtv-setup from the computing menu as it will be running with proper permissions.
