MythTV Frustrations

     I’ve figured out the method to the madness that is deleting recordings with MythTV with MythWeb when you have 800 of them. The trick is to open a “tail -f /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log” and have it running in the background. Then click Delete or Delete + Re-record and press OK. The important thing to do is to wait until the log shows the “Sheduled #### items in blah seconds… ” once that’s done, then you can delete the next one. If you try before then it all goes to crap.

     Speaking of crap, I moved into my new office yesterday. I need a new wall and a desk and stuff, but I figured now is as good of a time as any. Yeah, now would be fine except the new girl who sits nearby has a radio tuned to that Toronto station that plays Christmas carols for two months before Christmas. I flexed my power and promptly got a new pair of headphones to get through the time without a sound dampening wall.

     One major positive of the move is that they all leave at 16:00 over here, so I only have to wait until 4pm to crank it up.
