Digital tuner prevents mythbackend starting

Reported by: Alex Grayson <reallytightearmuffs@…> Owned by: Janne Grunau
Priority: critical Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - DVB Version: Unspecified
Severity: high Keywords: dvb "Failed to bind port 6543" backend
Cc: Ticket locked: yes


running ubuntu 10.04

Using analog tuners, mythtv does what it's supposed to. However, when I add an hdhomerun network tuner to the mix, I get this output when starting mythbackend.

Also, I did a sudo killall mythbackend to ensure that all backend processes were killed and the error persists.

I am new to bug reporting, so if you need more information, please be specific on how to get it. Also, I had this same problem with ubuntu 9.10.

You have another instance of the backend running. Since you are on Ubuntu, this is almost definitely upstart trying to restart it as soon as you kill it. Please follow up on the users list if you need help.

It has to be the dvb card, since backend starts normally when only using analog cards, but not when using dvb cards. Furthermore, I did a killall command then went into the frontend and got nothing. there is no backend running, or it is a partial, non-functional backend. Please don't dismiss this ticket. I'm on a fresh install of ubuntu+mythtv and this problem happens out of the box.

Edit above: Now the backend will not start at all, analog or dvb. Someone please help with this stupid problem. It happened out of the box and all anyone says is "another backend is running". At least help me get a working mythtv system.

If it is a problem, it's a setup problem and not a bug. Please follow up on the IRC channel or mailing list for assistance.
