Now your post looks like my post And your right it will only work on new rules created after the setting is changed. I found this out the hard way... and forgot about it until Hamal's mention of it. I went through and deleted all rules and remade them. Good work Hamal for remembering the quirk ...

Hey, has anyone upgraded their mythtv install from 10.04LTS to 12.04LTS? I'm contemplating it, I can't think of a reason not to...

Reason I ask, the default behavior on LTS releases is to not upgrade until the first point release, i.e. 12.04.1, this case in July.

See here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/12539...4-to-12-04-lts

Ubuntu 10.04 is still supported for another two years. If your setup is working right now, then there is currently no discernible benefit to upgrading to 12.04.

If your server broke and you needed to rebuild it, then yeah - go to 12.04, but until then, just leave it.

Is the version of mythtv in 12.04 newer than the Avenard repo? I've done a fresh install of 12.04 on my laptop and the frontend tells me that the version on the server needs to be upgraded and won't connect to the server; maybe I should just install the frontend version on my laptop from Avenard

Hmm, how do I tell aptitude that I want to install an older version of a package, from a different repo...

Yes, 12.04 has MythTV 0.25 while 10.04 had 0.24. Mr Avenard has not yet produced a Precise repository yet, but no doubt he will soon.

In general, I'd be looking at upgrading your MythTV setup to 0.25 anyway. That's what I'm working on today for myself.

I've already tried using the Oneiric repo from Avenard on 12.04, but sadly there are some dependency issues (some of Precise's libraries are much newer than Lucid or even Oneiric, so installation fails as the dependency expects a specific version of a library here and there).

Humm, I see. Well, if you do get it worked out, please let me know what repo you used

No shows are scheduled to be recorded right now, so I was going to slip in a ninja upgrade while family are otherwise engaged

For now I'm just using the main Ubuntu repository. I'll switch it back to Avenard when his Precise repo is made.

I did a clean install of 12.04 last night... :-) so I'm using the main Ubuntu repository...

What is Avenard? And what does if offer over the standard ubuntu repository?

Jean-Yves Avenard is a prominent Australian MythTV developer (well, he's French, but now lives in Australia) who made a big name for himself during the 0.23 and 0.24 development periods. He was one of the instrumental people who brought proper VDPAU support into MythTV and provided his own packages from his own repo.

He now works directly with the MythTV development team, but many people still prefer to use his repositories.

His personal website: http://www.avenard.org/media/Home.html
His LinkedIn profile: http://www.linkedin.com/in/jeanyvesavenard

possible early trunk code/advancements.

If what you've got ain't broke don't fix it.

Well, I decided to go ahead and upgrade, so that I could have 0.25 and watch from my 12.04 laptop, and the IR receiver I want to put on the lounge frontend was recognized no problems on my laptop, but not on 10.04.

And the upgrade on the backend has had a problem I've done a manual install of perl-base as per here: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=494106

The upgrade has more problems, and dpkg --configure -a gives:

Damnit. I'm going to start searching for this problem, meantime has anyone else has this issue?

Edit: manual installation of assorted packages as pointed out by 'dpkg --configure -a' seems to have resolved issues, restarting the upgrade...

Edit edit: yay, upgrade seems to be proceeding OK

Edit edit edit: all good! upgrade completed OK, was very slow to change channels, power cycle on the PlayTV tuners fixed that, phew!

My guide data emptied itself since I upgraded to 12.04 - the missus isn't happy, neither The Voice nor Masterchef recorded! (nor did my MotoGP or V8SC!)

Now it's time to get to the bottom of this. Anyone else experienced shepherd/mythfilldatabase unreliability since upgrading from 10.04?

edit:
Output from mythfilldatabase:

Code:
2012-05-07 10:13:40.202540 I  XMLTV config file is: /home/owen/.mythtv/HDTV-AU.xmltv
2012-05-07 10:13:45.509844 E  Error in 1:1: unexpected end of file
HDTV-AU.xmltv does not exist. I created a symlink with that name to ~/.shepherd/output.xmltv but I am still seeing the 'unexpected end of file' error. No obvious problems like wrong file permissions etc...

edit: I just deleted my shepherd directory and started over. Seems to be working fine now!

Hi all, I've got a problem with my new IR remote, sigh.

I don't understand why irrecord works, but lircd does not! irrecord sees keypresses and I can create a lircd.conf file with irrecord, but when I use the same driver and device in the hardware.conf file, irw won't see any keypresses from lircd. Here are the command and file:
Code:
$sudo irrecord --driver=devinput --device=/dev/input/by-id/usb-FINTEK_eHome_Infrared_Transceiver_88636562727801-event-if00 VRC-1100
This works just fine, irrecord sees the keypresses, I can name them and a file is created. (VRC-1100 copied to /etc/lirc/lircd.conf)
Code:
$ cat hardware.conf
# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
#
#Chosen Remote Control
REMOTE="VRC-1100"
REMOTE_MODULES=""
REMOTE_DRIVER="devinput"
REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/input/by-id/usb-FINTEK_eHome_Infrared_Transceiver_88636562727801-event-if00"
REMOTE_SOCKET=""
REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF="/etc/lirc/lircd.conf"
REMOTE_LIRCD_ARGS=""

#Enable lircd
START_LIRCD="true"

#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file
#START_LIRCMD="false"

#Try to load appropriate kernel modules
LOAD_MODULES="true"

# Default configuration files for your hardware if any
LIRCMD_CONF=""

#Forcing noninteractive reconfiguration
#If lirc is to be reconfigured by an external application
#that doesn't have a debconf frontend available, the noninteractive
#frontend can be invoked and set to parse REMOTE and TRANSMITTER
#It will then populate all other variables without any user input
#If you would like to configure lirc via standard methods, be sure
#to leave this set to "false"
FORCE_NONINTERACTIVE_RECONFIGURATION="false"
START_LIRCMD=""
I must be missing something, can anyone see the obvious problem with my above configuration?? Thanks!

1 Are you using the correct naming convention for the lircd.conf you are making?
2 Have you got this in rc.local?
Code:
echo lirc > /sys/class/rc/rc0/protocols
3 Are you restarting lirc each time you change something?
I have been told that some of whats in hardware.conf isnt actually used and is deprecated. I'd try putting the lird.conf you have made in usr/share/lirc/remotes/devinput/ and name it whatever is in that folder.
I had problems ages ago getting irsend to work when specifying lircd.confs in etc/hardware conf and even in the include list which is normally in /etc/lirc/lircd.conf that points to usr/share/lirc/remotes/yourremotename. I gave up in the end and put in usr/share/lirc/remotes and it worked what can I say?
Heres mine anyway less the commented out stuff
Code:
REMOTE="Windows Media Center Transceivers/Remotes (all)"
REMOTE_MODULES="lirc_dev mceusb"
REMOTE_DRIVER=""
REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/lirc0"
REMOTE_SOCKET=""
REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF="mceusb/lircd.conf.mceusb"
REMOTE_LIRCD_ARGS=""
TRANSMITTER_LIRCD_CONF="dish/general.conf"
START_LIRCD="true"
LOAD_MODULES="true"
LIRCMD_CONF=""
FORCE_NONINTERACTIVE_RECONFIGURATION="false"
START_LIRCMD=""
notice this line REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF="mceusb/lircd.conf.mceusb"
I have my lircd.conf that has my mceusb codes along with my projecter and yamaha reciever codes in that location and I can control those devices.. So lirc assumes its in /usr/share/remotes/ before you start.
I think this is the auto generated mythbuntu hardware.conf too? I honesty cant remember.
Differences between mine and your are
Code:
REMOTE="VRC-1100"
REMOTE_MODULES=""
REMOTE_DRIVER="devinput"
REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/input/by-id-rarara"
REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF="/etc/lirc/lircd.conf"
cheers rileyp
Edit I just ran dkpg-reconfigure lirc on my backend and selected a "device by path" like yours and it suggests the REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF="devinput/lircd.conf.devinput" meaning in /usr/share/devinput/lircd.conf.devinput
So edit your hardware conf so it has REMOTE_LIRCD_CONF="devinput/lircd.conf.devinput" and dump the one you have made in there and rename it to suit
Oh and my etc/lirc/lircd.conf now has in it
Code:
include "/usr/share/lirc/remotes/devinput/lircd.conf.devinput"
So make yours the same and then restart lirc and try irw
I think that should sort it out.
