Wiki page fix for upgrade

"The upgrade from previous versions should be transparent. Any changes to the database structure should be applied automatically."

This should be changed to say that it will be transparent if you run your DB on localhost with no authentication. Otherwise, you will need to look up the procedure for how to upgrade the DB by hand.


Installing with MariaDB

in section 3.4.3, when executing 'apt-get build-dep mythtv', you may get an error about libmysqlclient-dev. To avoid this, I installed MariaDB's version of that lib: apt-get install libmariadbclient-dev

mysql.txt is deprecated by config.xml

  • Configuring a non-master backend
    • /usr/local/share/mythtv/mysql.txtetc/mythtv/config.xml
  • No programs are displayed in "Watch Recordings"
    • /usr/local/share/mythtv/mysql.txt
    • /home/mythtv/.mythtv/mysql.txt

Order of Inputs

The order can be configured Cardinput_table#{sched,live}order. Cards do no longer be removed for reordering. This also renders the section Advanced Backend Configurations deprecated.

Advanced Partition Formatting

btrfs is missing either a recommendation or the opposite.

Broken fixed-width table

The table in Manual Transcoding looks broken; replace the < nowiki > , < tt > , < br/ > markup with a single < pre > ... < /pre > around the whole section inside the < blockquote >.
