Mythbuntu Autologin

Filed under: General,MythTV — taing @ 11:34 pm

After upgrading to 12.04LTS we found autologin no longer worked. The secret was to add:


to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.

Refer to the post at http://www.mattfischer.com/blog/?p=343 for more info. Or look in /usr/share/doc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.gz.

Reset the Haupauge WinTV unit

Filed under: General,MythTV — taing @ 11:24 pm

Once again after a restart the Haupauge unit was not seen by the backend.

The systems here are all upgraded to mythbuntu 12.04LTS and Myth .26.

I tried:

sudo usb_modeswitch -v 2040 -p 7501 -R

And had success. A “sudo shutdown -r now” with no sucess. In the past a power cycle of the devvice and the PC were required.
