Seeing how much compatibility issues I have from one release of Ubuntu to another, Iâ€™m staying with 14.04 as long as itâ€™s officially supported. BTW, I have a lot of x Ubuntu type PC around the house and I usually install Mythtv-frontend and Kodi on all of them.the frontend is picky about the Unity interface, but Kodi works great as a frontend to Mythtv.My old mythbuntu 12.04 installation has been running quite happily and for quite some time now, without updates.Remembering where to find the firmware always takes me the longest :-) _______________________________________________ mythtv-users mailing list [email protected] Myth TV Forums: https://forum.wrote: Hi Jim, Â Thanks for the workflow.Â Yes.You pretty much go thru the MCC as part of the install. If I didnâ€™t have to install firmware for my Hauppauge 2250, I could so it all in a few minutes. Not sure why you think there won't.Â --Thomas Mashos Thanks Jim/Thomas, Â Looks like 14.04 is the way to go then, especially if 16.04 will be released as an official upgrade. name=pvr-mythbuntu1204-to-1404 Regards, Curtis _______________________________________________ mythtv-users mailing list [email protected] Myth TV Forums: https://forum.wrote: Â Hi Marius, If it helps, I wrote tutorials on installing Mythbuntu 14.04 and also migrating from Mythbuntu 12.04 to 14.04. name=pvr-install-mythbuntu1404 Migrating Mythbuntu 12.04 to Mythbuntu 14.04 Remembering where to find the firmware always takes me the longest :-) Didnâ€™t understand your comment about no longer providing ISOâ€™s. name=pvr-mythbuntu1204-to-1404 Regards, Curtis Thanks Curtis, Â I'll read both of those.Other than that, the only challenge is likely to be upgrading mythconverg. Other than that, the only challenge is likely to be upgrading mythconverg.Â I recently got a Harmony IR remote working on Mythbuntu 14.04. Â I think the main problem is with the combination of newer harmony and imon receiver.Â From my old harmony (can't remember the number) the codes came through loud and clear, but the Harmony touch I have now just doesn't seem to manage as well (despite Logitech trying to sort it out), and dmesg floods with unrecognised keystrokes on certain keys -- EXIT for example is always sticky...sometijmes it's recognised and sometimes not and I have to keep pressed for several seconds, before Myth TV suddenly jumps back several steps and I have to start again.
So my question is what is the best practice for doing so?Lubuntu/Xubuntu/other suggestions or desktops...), then adding the Mythtv control centre package and dependencies, restoring my old mythtv 0.24? But the time has come to both partially update the hardware (new disks etc.) clean up and update the installation.
