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.

/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend
/etc/cron.daily/mythtv-backend

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.
