    Upgrading to 0.23 broke Mythtv

    Hello

    I activated 0.23 wekkly builds and cannot start either frontend or backend-setup. Only real mode is working. Any help please.

    The second issue I have now is that my 3 DVB cards changes the device number after each reboot. How can I prevent that?

    Thanks.

    What is "real mode"? Were you prompted to upgrade your DB? Any error messages? Log files?

    SLightly off topic but is there a list anywhere as to what is new in .23? I have asked google but not really found anything new listed.
    Im still kind of new here, only 8 years into ubuntu and still finding my way around!
    There are no such things as dumb questions, just dumb people! (And yes, i consider myself to be dumb!)

    I didn't think 0.23 was released yet.

    The main mythtv page (http://www.mythtv.org/) says its still just 0.22.

    Depending on the build you are running, there may be a bug with a bunch of shell scripts not being executable.

    chmod a+x /usr/share/mythtv/*.sh should fix it.

    Can you please verify your build and OS thought?

    lsb_release -a
    apt-cache policy mythtv-backend

    I had some trouble with that as well until I rebooted.

    It's not. That doesn't mean that you can't upgrade to it though.

    Yes but 0.23 is trunk=experimental=try at your risk. It changes regularly and on some days it will simply be broken. Such is the nature of running svn software.

    Do NOT run trunk unless you are subscribed to and READ the mythtv-dev mailing list. If you do, you aren't likely to be ready for it or to get much help.

    Geez, you make it sound so bad to run something that is shipping for 10.04. Try to be constructive and help out here.
