Talk:Frequently Asked Questions
This was a major issue for me:
- 1 I can't scan DVB-S card, or even import channels.conf!
- 2 How do I remove recordings that no longer exist on disk?
- 3 CleanUp: What are my options for connecting my computer to my TV?
- 4 When using live TV, why is there a delay between the moment I change the channel and the time the channel actually changes?
I can't scan DVB-S card, or even import channels.conf!
(And I see "DiSEqCDevTree, Error: No root device tree node!" in the output) A: Go to the card's settings in mythtv-setup, and configure DiSEqC. If you don't use DiSEqC switch, set it's type to LNB, default settings.
I wanted to post my own question to this page, without being so bold as to directly edit the page in case that would be deemed to be improper etiquette.
How do I remove recordings that no longer exist on disk?
Is that manual step with the script still needed? It seems that removing recordings which no longer have files associated to them works just fine by default.
CleanUp: What are my options for connecting my computer to my TV?
Seems like this topic is big enough to be its own page with a summary and hyper links here.
- Configuring TV output is a start
- User_Manual:Setting_Up#Connecting_your_display has some infomration

When using live TV, why is there a delay between the moment I change the channel and the time the channel actually changes?
I was fascinated to see this yesterday and am quite confused that it has now vanished (without explanation). Any useful tips to improve channel change time would be most welcome - a hint as to how to do it and any caveats would also be useful. Thanks, Alastair
Yeah it's generally regarded as bad etiquette to blindly remove additions without at least stating why in the comments. I'd have happily opened up this idea to discussion in the proper place (here). If there are known issues with this idea then they can also be documented here and removed if necessary. I'd like to see some input from the remover "Wagnerrp" with some justifications for removal next ...
