View Full Version : [SOLVED] HDHomeRun tuner "unavailable" in Myth after reboot...

I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 64-bit with Mythbuntu. Lately when I reboot my machine, the tuner on the HDHomeRun stops working. When I go to Information Center > System Status > Tuner Status, the HDHomeRun's tuners status shows as "unavailable".

I am able to work around this by going into Mythbuntu setup to the capture card setup. If I just go into the setup screen for each of the two HDHomeRun tuners and hit "finish", the problem is fixed. After exiting out of Mythbuntu setup, I go back into Information Center > System Status > Tuner Status and the tuners show as "not recording" which means they are available and working as normal.

It is a big inconvenience to have to go into setup every time I reboot my machine. Is there a way to fix this problem?

Thanks,
Todd

Hi,

What happens when you poweroff the backend and not just reboot?
Do you see anything in your syslog (try a dmesg |more).
Does the tuner always get the same device number (what's it called in myth-setup)

Sounds very similar to my problem here:

Basically if mythtv-backend starts before you've gotten a valid ip address from the network manager, it doesn't find the HDHomeRun.

Delay the startup of mythtv-backend to the end.


sudo mv /etc/rc2.d/S24mythtv-backend /etc/rc2.d/S99mythtv-backend

That worked. Thanks!
