At the backend inside /var/log/mythtv/ is an empty current log file
(it's size is 0) and some very old rotated logs.
At the frontend there's no /var/log/mythtv directory at all.
Can I increase logging verbosity somehow?
Thanks for the link but I'm not sure if this information applies to my
case. I believe I'm just using MythTV protocol to stream video from
backend to frontend. I don't have any NFS, SMB or CIFS mounts (yet). I'm
a little confused - does MythTV require setting a shared directory for
remote LiveTV? How come it all works in "Watch recordings"?
If I need to read some HOWTO or FAQ (I've googled around to no avail)
please point me in the right direction.
My setup is as follows:
BACKEND MACHINE (strong CPU, lots of RAM, hauppauge PVR-150 card, ubuntu
feisty with mythtv backend and no more used frontend, no network shares
FRONTEND MACHINE (weak but cool CPU, enough RAM, no TV card, mythtv
When I run the frontend at the backend machine, live tv works. At
frontend machine everything works (EPG, watching recordings, etc.)
