mytharchive fails with python error

I'm using the 0.20svn20070122ubuntu3 package from ubuntu of mytharchive. In my setup I've got a dedicated backend and a dedicated frontend. Since my backend is under powered I wanted to run the archiving on the frontend.

The python error is here.

elif path == or path.endswith('/'):

I'm guessing that either

  • mytharchive looks on the localhost for the mythtv database to grab the information about the recordings. However the database is actually on the backend. In which case it should really connect to which ever backend is set in the frontends config files to grab the info.


  • the backend database hasn't got permission/a hostname entry for mytharchive to dip into the database

ok, I solved the problem, I needed to nfs mount the recordings dir, which I did as /recordings then I needed to update the database

insert into settings (value, data, hostname) VALUES ('RecordFilePrefix?', '/recordings', 'pacifica');

Please close this if its not a bug, but why did I manually need to edit the database?

Currently MythArchive? will only work properly on combined FE/BE machines.
