MythTV Problems
« on: June 20, 2008, 08:18:51 pm »
Issue started yesterday after my core was reset. Didnt notice any update but then i wasnt looking for them. But for some reason now, myth doesnt record anything other than what I am watching.

-Cant record from mythweb
-can do it from the myth gui on screen -just says 'record' then forgets about it
-cant do it from UI2 either with gyr mouse. red dot  dissapears

needless to say im a bit miffed because i *HAVE NOT* been messing with the system for a while now. Anyone have any ideas on what i should look at as a possible cause?

i get this in the dce router log when i press record twice, pressing once only shows up on myth gui, pressing twice shows up on dce router and myth on screen gui

Code: [Select]

Check /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log for error which say there are corrupt tables.  Usually the recordmarkup or something similar, it has happened to me a couple of times. Almost always after a power outage.

Try either of these options:
Code: [Select]
/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend stop
mysqlcheck -c -uroot -p mythconverg

if there are errors the run
Code: [Select]
mysqlcheck -r -uroot -p mythconverg
occasional this does not fix the problem, then try this
Code: [Select]
cd /var/lib/mysql/mythconverg
/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend stop
/etc/init.d/mysql stop
myisamchk *.MYI -r
