Hi Ian and evebody.
I use mythtv on 2 computers, but I have only 1 tuner pn usbstick.
Sometimes when booting a computer I forget to put the usbstick on the
right machine and then after starting the computer, frontend tells me
that there is a problem with backend. Backend has not been started
automatically because it could not find the tuner.
In this case, after connecting the tuner, I do:
# systemctl stop mythtv-backend
# systemctl start mythtv-backend
# systemctl status mythtv-backend
Normally the backend is active now. So I return to see what the frontend
says. Sometimes the error message has disappeared, but not always.
If there is still the error message, I reboot my machine and then the
backend starts automatically and frontend no more complains.
In the moment I have:
$ ps ax | grep -i myth*
4747 pts/3 S+ 0:00 grep -i myth*
7957 ? Ssl 15:32 /usr/bin/mythbackend --daemon --pidfile
For the moment, my computer runs day and night and there should be no
problem. Next time I reboot it, I shall first regard if tere is more
than 1 mythtv process running and in this case, I know what to do now.
If my problem persists, I shall tell you.
thanks very much for help
