mythtv-setup is a configuration utility for configuring Mythbackend. This utility must be used before attempting to run the backend for the first time.

Important.png Note: Nearly all settings in mythtv-setup require that mythbackend be restarted before they take effect. If your backend is running, mythtv-setup has the option to close mythbackend before running. If using MythBuntu, this will be performed automatically by a wrapper script.

By running myhtv-setup one gets...

  1. General
  2. Capture cards
  3. Video sources
  4. Input connections
  5. Channel Editor
  6. Storage Directories
  7. System Events
