Channel-specific TV Format Setting not working

Reported by: mythtv@… Owned by: danielk

I have global TV Format set to ATSC.

I have a pcHDTV 5500 and a PVR500. For all of the channels that the 500 tunes, I have gone into the Channel Editor and changed the TV Format to be NTSC.

I did a mythfilldatabase, ran the db optimize/repair from the contrib directory and then restarted the backend.

NTSC recordings through the PVR500 still fail with: Channel(/dev/video1) Error: SetInputAndFormat?(1, ATSC)

I've googled, searched the archives and can't find anyplace else to change the TV Format--leading me to believe that this is a bug.

Are you mixing ATSC and NTSC channels on the same video source?

comment:3 Changed 14 years ago by mythtv@…

I have 2 different lineups from Schedules Direct. One is exclusively ATSC and one is exclusively NTSC. There are no channels in common.

Any further information required? (The one thing maybe unclear from my previous comment is that the ATSC lineup is only associated with the pcHDTV5500 and the NTSC lineup is only associated with the PVR500 tuners.

(In [14895]) Refs #4131. Changes to standard dialogs for MythContext menus.

There were some usage problems noticed with the dialogs when testing #4131. This just switches those dialogs to using the standard dialogs where appropriate to avoid any strange user interaction problems. KeyGrabPopupBox? is still a custom dialog since it needs to be able to capture any key, including escape.

Oops, [14895]) should have referenced ticket #4132, and "MythContext" should have read "MythControls?".

This shouldn't be an issue anymore, ATSC is no longer be listed as a valid format since support for digital V4L drivers was removed.
