I don't think this is a mythtv problem. All other aspects of it appear to be working with its local database connection.On Sun, 10 May 2015 18:17:27 +0100 Alan Chandler <email@example.com> wrote: Hello Alan,The plot thickens - After working during the week, I came to view Mythtv again today and it is refusing connection to the database again.The following may, or may not, be of use to you (taken from the Debian Multimedia mailing list - credit to Stephan Sürken); in jessie "/var/run/mythtv/" seems to pre-exists at boot time with the "x" flag missing at the time the init script runs: drw-r-xr-x 2 mythtv root 40 May 10 12:41 . -- which makes the backend fail to start (pidfile perms). Any idea what causes this? and in a follow up, also from Stephan; fwiw: I found it ;): systemctl disable monit fixes this on my system. Seems monit runs before and messes around with the pid path.
The fact that
mysql --host=owl.home --user=mythtv --password=xxxxxx mythconverg
is the problem means its the database connection
