    Re: HOWTO: Auto transcode MYTHTV recorded shows to DVD, XVID or DIVX cutting out the

    Thanks for the info.

    I have changed my permission for the save dir and can see the tasks are sceduled via backend status.

    My problem appears to be caused by not allowing the jobs to run in mythtv-setup->general. I had entered my scripts in the jobs section but did not give permission for these jobs to run in the previous screen.

    Thats been sorted and will give it a go when later tonight.

    thanks again
    d

    Update:
    script is still not working although in the backend status the queued job is showing as completed whereas previously it just said queued.
    Still dont think the script is being called.

    Update 2:
    Got it working. Last error was a fail on opening mysql.txt due to imcorrect permissions. The log helped me find that one.
    Thanks for your help and the excellent howto.

    Code:
    # export_prog=ffmpeg    (call the encoder from MythTV userjobs)
    # mode=xvid    (request mode from MythTV userjobs)
    I've also changed my userjobs to look like:

    UserJob1 - Convert to DVD
    Code:
    nuvexport-dvd --ffmpeg --nice 19 --input="%FILE%"

    UserJob2 - Convert to XVID

    Code:
    nuvexport-xvid --mencoder --nice 8 --input="%FILE%"

    UserJob3 - Convert to DIVX

    Code:
    nuvexport-divx --ffmpeg --nice 10 --input="%FILE%"
    GrammatonCleric,
    thanks for the nice howto. I own an Ipod and wanted to directly encode it to MP4. Do you know what is the command that I need to enter in the user job field? I have been able to manually encode it to MP4 but was curious to know if I could add it as a user job.

    Thanks

    Found the answer in the myth2ipod script.
    in the User Job 1 I entered the following
    nuvexport --mode=iPod --nice=19 --cutlist --nodenoise --nodeinterlace --nomultipass --input="%FILE%"

    Thanks

    Can someone help me with this? I am having the same problem as one of the posters above. Here is a link to my thread explaining what is happening in detail:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=467747
    I followed the guide exactly and have not been able to find any solutions elsewhere.

    Just to verify. You have selected each show to run the post record processing by selecting this option on a "per show" basis? Within MythWeb select a show that you want to convert make sure that your the option to convert has been selected (see image).

    ok I think I have made some progress. From the table settings, I changed from global to my local machine and enabled the user jobs to run (changed 0 to a 1). Now it starts the transcoding. HOwever, I now have a proble where the transcoding started before the commercial flagging on my latest recording. I have attached the log screenshot below.

    First, I would disable the function to run User Job one on all recordings for now. the setting you have enabled in the screen capture...

    http://ubuntuforums.org/attachment.p...5&d=1181282735

    Set this on a per show basis not globally for all shows. Doing this will allow you to set different quality settings for different shows (i.e. I have StarGate set to best where as I have Ghost Hunters set to Medium.).

    Next, what is the value you have set for the "Max Simultaneous Jobs on this Backend" ? I have mine set to 4 but you may want to set this to something that your processor can handle.

    Do you have your setting for "Start Auto Commercial Flagging Jobs when Recording Starts" enabled? This starts the commercial flagging while the show is recording vs. doing this as a post recording process.

    Hi I followed this guide but I can't make it work on mythtv side, if I use the command into a terminal window it works.

    - I've checked the path, it's ok
    - I've checked permissions, everybody can read/write on the directory

    The log shows the following:

    Code:
    2007-06-09 21:49:33.172 JobQueue: Started "Exporta a XviD" for "30 minuts - L'ETANOL, EL COMBUSTIBLE QUE ES PLANTA" recorded from channel 1801 at dg abr 22 21:40:00 2007

    any idea?

    thks
