I'm not sure. You could insert deb multimedia into sources and install the frontend only and see?

Good Luck

Unfortunately Myth frontend uses software decoding of the video stream. The Pi cpu does not have the horsepower to decode an mpg stream. If you updated Myth to use the GPU then it should work a treat.

I tried installing like this, but for me Myth backend would crash very often without writing anything to any logs that I could find. I didn't persist with it.

Re: Mythtv Working (Packages Provided)

Hi All I have good news and bad. I have the myth backend running on a pi. I use separate front and back end pi's. I have tried on various version of raspbian and noobs and they all work. The bad is that here in Australia we have a mixture of 720i and 1080i transmissions. The pi can record one 1080 c...

Re: Mythtv Working (Packages Provided)

On another front I made half a step forwards getting this running. I had read somewhere that to enable external frontends to access the mysql database you had to comment out the bind address line in my.cnf. But I have just worked out that is incorrect. You actually have to set the bind address to 0....

Hi technoboi Have you seen here http://superuser.com/questions/490069/can-i-run-mythbackend-on-raspberry-pi The last post links to a guide where the guy had to build his own database.

Re: Mythtv Working (Packages Provided)

So is anyone with a functioning backend willing to post up an image somewhere?

I know a few of us would really appreciate it.

Cheers

Re: Mythtv Working (Packages Provided)

I have spent many hours unsuccessfully trying to get this to work. I have got the tuner working and it has scanned successfully for channels. I've set up storage directories. The EPG is there. All is ready to go but the frontend won't connect to the master backend even when running the local GUI vi...

Re: SD card sticking out ? Use RSMMC

Part 2. The gap left behind from the departed USB connector has been filled with a mixture of superglue and talcum powder. Be very careful here as it is very easy to push the mixture in too far and the micro SD card will no longer fit. 04_Filled.jpg The edge cleaned up with a file and coloured black...
