I am having this same issue. I added the mythbuntu repos from the deb package I found on a search and ran the updates, but same problem.
I looked at the .sql file and it's ~3 megs, which seems a little small, however looking at the file there was a lot in it. I upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04 and did a backup through the Mybtuntu Control Center before I did a clean install.
Any idea what may be going on?
As a workaround for restoring.
- Open a terminal
- stop mcc-backend "sudo killall mcc-backend"
- start mcc-backend "sudo /usr/share/mythbuntu/mcc-backend"
- Open MCC and restore your backup
It is saying it is successful, however it doesn't appear to be actually doing anything. None of my settings returned and when I made some changes then restored again, those changes didn't revert.
So I set my video directory and went and loaded them all. It rebuilt the database from what I can tell completely. Looked at the videos and all the meta data was gone.
So I tried restoring again and it left the one change I made, which is where my videos are stored, and didn't change change that setting or update the meta data for my videos.
Is there anything specific I can check to see if the database is actually being updated at all when I run the restore?
Correct, I am running it on the master backend.
FindCode:sudo nano /usr/share/mythbuntu/bare/mythrestore.py
And change it toCode:if os.path.isfile("/usr/share/doc/mythtv-backend-master"):
Save the file then attempt the restore again.Code:if os.path.isdir("/usr/share/doc/mythtv-backend-master"):
I am embarrassed that it has taken me so long to reply after your prompt responses, however same thing, doesn't seem to be restoring the database. I tried removing the Videos directory and clearing out all the video files by doing a rescan, restored it, and the videos directory was still empty.
