Here are the results. I should let you know that I have to run .23 because I use mythBox as well. Everything seems to work and to be put in the proper folders, except it will not transcode the file. Also when I run the update all of the test come out PASSED.

Oh, ok... I was assuming that you were using 0.24. Make sure you configure mythicalLibrarian to use MythTV 0.23 during the mythicalLibrarian --update process. Check to make sure your database username and password are correct as well. Assuming you have subscribed to schedulesDirect, or use XMLTV downloads, that should fix everything.

I have everything set to what I think is correct but I get this in the diagnostic.

Like I said, it finds the files, renames them and moves them. It just doesn't transcode.

Weird.

I love this and when I get it working perfectly, it will be my savior. Thank you for all your help.

Please disregard that portion. It should not show up when you select version 0.23. What happens at the end of the diagnostics when update is run as mythtv?

Please post all from the diagnostic report until The terminal is displayed.

The problem is that you selected 0.24 and you are running 0.23. You must select 0.23 as the version of MythTV. The python bindings are tailored for version 0.24 and up. 0.23 and below use direct mysql access. There is a big difference and you must select your version properly.

Let me know if there are any problems.

I actually did select .23 stable when I set it up and, when I ran the update.

The python bindings test does not run on 0.23. only on 0.24.

I understand that, I am just wondering if there is a way to get the mythicalLibrarian to transcode with 0.23?

Here is my JobSucessful file.

PHP Code:
#Run a transcoding program on the file

ffmpeg -"$MoveDir/$ShowFileName.$originalext-f avi -vcodec mpeg4 -b 800k -g 300 -bf 2 "$MoveDir/$ShowFileName.mp4"

#Write the new file extension over the old extension for logging
originalext=mp4 

#Run logging for the new file extension so mythicalLibrarian can keep track of files it created.
performLoggingForMoveMode #or performLoggingForLinkMode
 
#remove the mythicalLibrarian symlink
rm "$InputPath"

#make a new symlink
ln -s  "$MoveDir/$ShowFileName.originalext" "$InputPath"

mythicalLibrarian is not obtaining information about the show. mythicalLibrarian has to work properly for a jobSucessful job to be run.

User jobs were implemented so that you can utilize the information generated by mythicalLibrarian in a custom manner. The ffmpeg example is just an example.

The following line converts mpg to mp4
Code:
ffmpeg -i $MoveDir/$ShowFileName.$OriginalExt -target ntsc-vcd $MoveDir/$ShowFileName.mp4

You can verify operation from the command line by running
Code:
ffmpeg -i /path_to_my/file.mpg -target ntsc-vcd /path_to_my/file.mp4

if the ffmpeg fails then you do not have ffmpeg installed on the system
Code:
apt-get install ffmpeg #possibly others as well

but, first and foremost, before anything else will work, mythicalLibrarian must work. you can run
Code:
mythicalLibrarian /path_to_my/recording.mpg

mythicalLibrarian was designed to do naming conventions. It imports all mythtv shows into XBMC. That's it's job. It seems that you are trying to use it for one of it's external system calls.

Use mythicalLibrarian to make a library out of your MythTV files. Leave the recording to MythTV and use XBMC as your library.

I really appreciate your help. I am trying to create a manual for installing Mythbuntu and mythicalLibrarian as a backend, with XBMC and mythBox as a frontend. I am soooooo close!

I had a couple questions based on your previous reply.

Quote:mythicalLibrarian is not obtaining information about the show. mythicalLibrarian has to work properly for a jobSucessful job to be run.

1. Could this be because I was not recording TV series but rather manually recording the morning news? The recordings I have tested on have been moved to the Showings folder.

2. Can I have mythicalLibrarian transcode even if it can't find data on the show?

Again, you have been super helpful.

Tell you what, I made a video about 2 months ago of installation of mythicalLibrarian. it starts with a fresh installation of XBMCLive with MythTV installed with shows already recorded. It runs through from start to scanning shows into XBMC. I never posted the video on youtube because I felt that the installation process could be made smoother and I put it on the back burner while I studied for my Security+ certification. I'll post the video up tonight when I get home.
