hi all. i've searched the archive and it seems that the most prevalent reason for this message is an error in hostname; however, my hostname is correct. likewise, i have checked the box "run jobs on original recording host." is there any other reason why i would get this message on the master backend?
a little background: i have a master backend/frontend, 2 slave backends/frontends and my laptop which is just a frontend. here is an example of my recorded table where the transcode column is 2:
title subtitle hostname transcoded
CSI: Miami Death Grip masterbed.psaconsultants.com 2
CSI: Miami Going Under masterbed.psaconsultants.com 2
CSI: Miami Driven masterbed.psaconsultants.com 2
My Name Is Earl Buried Treasure masterbed.psaconsultants.com 2
Grey's Anatomy Six Days masterbed.psaconsultants.com 2
Jake 2.0 Arms and the Girl masterbed.psaconsultants.com 2
Las Vegas Fleeting Cheating Meeting masterbed.psaconsultants.com 2
NUMB3RS Finders Keepers masterbed.psaconsultants.com 2
here is the exact error message from the master backend log:
2007-01-13 16:35:26.127 Attempted to transcode myth://192.168.0.107:6543/2004_20061217230000.mpg. Mythtranscode is currently unable to transcode remote files.
2007-01-13 16:35:26.133 JobQueue: Transcode Errored: CSI: Miami "Death Grip": (Autodetect)
if i run hostname on that box, it returns masterbed.psaconsultants.com. if i do an internal dns lookup on any host, i get 192.168.0.107. from the data it looks like this is only happening on the masterbed box but it happens on my other slave box as well (it just doesn't record a whole lot). it just depends on whether the master is already running a transcode job. if it is, the transcode job gets shifted to one of the slaves.
i am runngin myth version 0.20-148 from atrpms. the boxes were setup using jerod's guide.
anyone have any idea what i might be missing?
thanks in advance.
