Return of the MythTV Box

So I just scored me a free used Dell, has like a p4 @ 2.8ghz and what not’s.  So I will be reinstalling my mythbox again tonight, about damn time I say.  Updates as they come.

MythTV Linky Goodness

I was looking over some of my server logs and noticed a few incoming links from MythTV.  After looking into it, seems as though the good people over there liked a few of my posts about MythTV IMDB Fetch issues and the fix to go with them.  Just thought it was interesting…

MythTV .20 on Ubuntu 6.10

I have used this setup a few times in the past with out any issues at all.  Though the other day I reinstalled and have been getting the following error when starting the backend/retriviing channel line ups.

Session management error: Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specifiedare supportedhost-based authentication failed

and After searching around for a few I came across one fix which led me to another fix.  The problem is that MythTV was attempting to run as the Mythtv user, thats fine and dandy but I run mine as my user instead.  So you have to change two files and the problems will be fixed.  Here are the two files that need to be changed.


In those files you will see a spot right at the top where it is trying to run as the mythtv user,  just replace mythtv with your name and then you should be all set.
