  1. MythExport broken...any fixes? Manual installation?

    I just built a Raspberry Pi-based OSMC system to use as an alternate frontend on an older NTSC TV. I hate the OSMC interface compared to Mythfrontend, but for hardware reasons it will have to do...

    Trouble with audio levels

    The problem is analog recordings are REALLY REALLY LOUD. Either that, or digital recordings are ridiculously...
  7. Re: How to FORCE myth to record past the end of show?

    Re: Ignoring errors from external 6200ch?

    Ignoring errors from external 6200ch?

    Okay, I have a rather annoying problem. To make matters worse, it's an annoying problem on a system that is 2,300 miles away.
