Configuring Mythtv

In order for mythbackend to create a pid file when the daemon is started you will need to change /etc/rc.d/init.d/mythbackend and add some lines

vim /etc/rc.d/init.d/mythbackend
  • change the user to mythtv
  • change the log file to /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log
  • add -p /var/run/ to the end of the daemon command.

Once you have saved the file then.

  • create & setup the log directory
mkdir -p /var/log/mythtv
chown mythtv:mythtv /var/log/mythtv
  • setup the run directory
chmod 777 /var/run/
  • setup the /dev/video files
chown mythtv:mythtv /dev/vid*
  • get mythbackend to start when the system starts
/sbin/chkconfig mythbackend on
/sbin/service mythbackend restart
