Ah, sorry. Forgot to include my version:

mythtv at jade:~$ mythbackend --version
Please attach all output as a file in bug reports.
MythTV Version : v30.0
MythTV Branch :
Network Protocol : 91
Library API : 30.20181231-1
QT Version : 5.11.3
mythtv at jade:~$

I'm using Debian Buster and the deb-multimedia repo.

I really do have an upgrade on the 'to do' list but time, etc. and it isn't (yet) broke.
