[SOLVED] Problem in setting video source in myth 0810
« on: September 11, 2010, 02:46:07 am »
Hia,
reinstalling the system, something strange is happening to mythtv.
After setting up, the configurations defined in input connection ->  connect source to input, are not retained, making it almost impossible to start myth.
Everytime i correct the settings, on the next router reload, they are lost.
The configurations are:
display name (Tuner 1) and video source (LinuxMCE-Default).
After a reload, display name becomes blank and video soure become (none).
Is there a way to force the configuration to be kept?
TIA,
Paulo

For Brazil, there is no XML grabber for LinuxMCE, so there is the need for manually adding the channels, and for doing it, myhtv-setup is needed. LinuxMCE tries to configure cards and video sources. To avoid this, after having card and inputs defined by LinuxMCE, webadmin - advanced -> configuration -> devices -> MythTV Plugin and at the Device Data box, check Dont Auto Configure.

Maybe users of other countries have the same problem, so this may help.
This issue did not showed up in my previous installation.

Solved with Thom on IRC channel - Thx Thom.

Why don't we actually try to add support for other countries, so we don't have to do this hack?

I do have a xml file which is used to generate the EPG. This file is downloaded daily and with the channels i've created, mythfilldatabase does the rest. It's pretty complete, for all the tv networks. As it does not have the definition of which cable / sat service provider, the channel creation process is needed.
Is there someone who would like to take a look at this xml file?

The company which supplied the xmltv for for Brazil dropped this gentle offer. No more grabber, AFAIK for Brazil.
