Need help getting MythRoku started

Wed Apr 26, 2006 5:54 am

I've downloaded and installed the latest MythRoku (v.77) and am trying to connect to a backend running KnoppMyth (v16). At this point I don't have a TV tuner card in the backend -- I wanted to see how it would work with MythRoku before I bought one.

Every time I try to run MythRoku I get an error like this:

Core initialization completed.

I also installed the KnoppMyth frontend on a different PC and was able to get to the backend so I'm pretty sure that the problem doesn't lie with accessing the backend from remote frontends. Then again I'm quite a newbie with this so anything's possible.

If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them. Oh, and I'm running the latest version of the PB firmware.

Thanks!

I think mythroku freaks out if there isn't at least one recording on the backend..

Yeah, I'd wondered if that was the problem. I'm running my KnoppMyth backend inside of a VMWare virtual machine and I don't think I could access a TV tuner even if there was one in the host system. I was kind of hoping that I could at least use MythRoku to view some of the other info that's exposed by Mtyh, like weather and news stories.

MythRoku doesn't implement anything but view recordings.

Ah -- that's not what I wanted to hear. I wonder if I can insert some fake data into the MythTV tables to simulate having a recorded show. Time to figure out how that database is set up.

Yep - that did it. I inserted a bogus row of data into the "recorded" table and MythRoku started up OK and showed me the fake show. Thanks for the help, leenuxg33k.

Since I can never leave well enough alone I'm going to try to figure out some way to populate the myth database with records pointing to DVDs that I've already ripped elsewhere. Not that I need to, of course -- I use MPlay to play all of my videos. I'm just a glutton for punishment, I guess.
