Yes, if any of the packages/codecs that mythtv depends on get updated, mythtv has to be rebuild in order to work again. For repo packages this is done by the maintainer with a build number bump (e.g. -1 to -2), for AUR packages, YOU are the packager, so everyone has to do this themselves.

mythtvbackend.service wouldn't start for me following the recent upgrade of the x265 package. I downgraded to 2.8 and mythbackend.service started up. I suspect if I would have rebuilt the mythtv package mythbackend.service would have started with the 2.9 version of x265 but I had to get my myth box running immediately to record a show or I would risk a drop in spousal approval rating.

@fphillips: Thank you, that must have slipped my mind!

I have reported the x264 build issue upstream:

Thanks everyone for your patience while I was away!

Also, many thanks to @bigcajun826 for the patch that I shamelessly stole for this update!

Thank you, bigcajun826.

I've posted mythtv-fixes which builds and runs against current x264. It also fetches from the fixes/29 git branch, which contains many fixes since the 29.1 release.

I needed a working package for a few systems, and pushing to AUR was the easiest thing. @Taijian if you'd like to copy some/all of those changes into this package that'd be great. Then I can remove mine again :)

Sorry about the delay. I am currently on vacation and away from my computer. I'll update when I get back, after the 27th.

I think I have a patch that works here:

It's the libx264.c patch and the changes to PKGBUILD.
