Partial Channel Lock on one channel, hdhomerun gui no longer working

Post by arobinson » Sat Sep 21, 2019 5:38 pm

Looking to see if I can get a clue on how to troubleshoot an issue. I was running a really old version of mythbuntu with my hdhomerun for several years with no issues. Recently one of the channels stopped working and I got a partial channel lock issue in the mythtv. When I ran the hdhomerun_config_gui tool, I was able to manually tune to that station. I just upgraded my mythbuntu to the latest Ubuntu LTS today (Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS, Bionic Beaver). This unfortunately did not fix the channel lock issue, but now the hdhomerun_config_gui "View" button does nothing.

So looking for any assistance with either mythtv and why it can't get a channel lock on a station that has 100% signal strength or why hdhomerun_config_gui view doesn't in Ubuntu 18.04.

Thanks

The view button wasn't working as vlc was uninstalled during the upgrade. Now just need to figure out why mythtv cannot get a channel lock on a program hdhomerun_config_gui can view

What letters does it get on the partial lock and what channel is affected?
