#13162 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

mythfrontend does not start when Retry used

Reported by: mike.bibbings@… Owned by: Peter Bennett
Priority: minor Milestone: 29.1
Component: MythTV - General Version: v29-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

I have test system where the backend takes a long time to start due to many tuners (PCie and network). mythfrontend is set to autostart when machine boots. MythTV Startup Status screen is displayed and displays Unable to connect to master backend. This is expected as I have not changed any defaults. When I click Retry it fails again, this is not expected. Looking at the mythfrontend log, the first attempt after boot has BE and DB values for the connection test. After Retry the values of BE and DB have gone - looks like they are not being reloaded or get cleared. If I click Search backend is found via upnp and frontend start correctly. I have attached both frontend and backend logs.

config.xml file for user mythtv (/etc/mythtv/config.xml)

Note config.xml file for user running mythtv was originally sym linked to /etc/mythtv/config.xml. running mythfrontend caused this sym link to be removed and replaced with a new config.xml file.
