I have to say huge kudos to you for this! I've been running a script to remove the commercials from the video before you made this option available. I can turn that script off now. :-)


Did you get livetv with the hdhomerun going? One thing can also look at is running the backend with -vall,nosocket in the a window and looking at what it says as mythroku talks to it.


I will run from the command line with those options when I get home.. Been away for the weekend.

Thanks!

Thanks

James,

I've finally gotten MythRoku working. What helped me solve the mysql permissions issue was using the the GUI version of Mysql administrator, and rereading the line about running the delete from tvchain line.

I've set up a MythTV frontend and backend on an Intel Mac Mini - that's another story - using a HDHomerun.

Your commercial skipping works and live TV works well. The only issue with the setup is that the response time for comands from the Roku remote is extremely sluggish.

Thanks again for all of your work.

Kent

which commands are sluggish. If its only channel changing and setting up livetv there isnt much that can be done as mythtv seems slow with the hdhomerun. For some reason mythtv sets up a dummy recorder which has a zero byte length. I poll the database until the true record is written with the right name, this takes a few secs for the hdhomerun.
Is it more than this?

Slow commands

You guessed correctly. Channel changes are like molasses. Changing is slow in other applications, too. Nonetheless, thanks for all of the help to get it working.

If I can figure out how to speed it up i'll release an update. tvplay seems much faster than mythtv for livetv.

0.80j shows icons for hdtv or commflagged recordings. Place the png files in your tmp directory under the mythroku root where the application is stored.

You are the man !

Love the indications for HD content as well as those commflagged.

Thanks for all you do for this application.

new feature added

mythroku-0.80k (6/08/07 latest development release) changes from 0.80j shows length and file position in minutes as well as % played when info is pressed during playback. I found this more useful to know how long a show was and how far in minutes I was in it.

Thanks. PS the fast forward/ rewind should also be more accurate since they now use the average bitrate from the file. They show inaccuracies at the start of the file (as most files are VBR not CBR) but statistics is your friend and they get closer the later on. It would be a lot of work to get it precise and probably not worth the effort/expense.
I would like to really play in FF or RW but that seems to hard to achieve given the roku's mpeg decoder set up.

OK, I must be nuts..... I just installed MythRoku and it runs, but I'm having a couple of problems. First, I don't see any mention of Live TV... Should there be a button, or icon, or something? How does one get to Live TV?

If you have no free recorders (i.e. mythtv is recording) then it won't show.
Live tv shows as the first entry.

telnet to your roku so you can run it from the linux command line and pipe the output to a log file. Posting that would help me see what is going on


I do:

./mythroku.app -backend=192.168.1.150 -dbuser=mythtv -themedir=/mnt/smb/djt1r661/d/mythroku/ -settingsdir=/mnt/smb/djt1r661/d/mythroku/tmp >& log&

hmmm not sure it says you have 1 free recorder,
Is you 1st item All programs? Live Tv should be above it

Ok can you play files and skip commercials, if you watch the log when you play do you see lines like
2007-06-8 09:45:03.80 Unknown Debug cmyth_get_comm_break: (ERROR) JMM databasequery(SELECT mark, offset, type FROM recordedseek WHERE starttime = "2007-05-31T19:00:00" ORDER BY mark)

2007-06-8 09:45:03.220 Unknown Debug cmyth_get_comm_break: (ERROR) JMM numrows(10781)

2007-06-8 09:45:03.220 Unknown Debug cmyth_get_comm_break: (ERROR) JMM (0 4, 0)

2007-06-8 09:45:03.220 Unknown Debug cmyth_get_comm_break: (ERROR) JMM row (15, 0 6)

2007-06-8 09:45:03.220 Unknown Debug cmyth_get_comm_break: (ERROR) JMM (1 5, 10727)

2007-06-8 09:45:03.230 Unknown Debug cmyth_get_comm_break: (ERROR) JMM row (10740, 299640832 6)



this means you did talk to the database.
You should see Live Tv as your 1st program,

do you see the flag or hd icon, my website says where to put them. You will need to get them from 0.80j, then get the new app 0.80k.

No, the first item in the list is "All Programs" NOT "Live TV". I didn't get anything from 0.80j, so I'll do that. It might be helpful to know that none of the recordings play either showing "File not found" when I try to play them. I'm stumped.

I'll put the files from "j" in and see what happens.
