Re: How to import videos

It actually works with V29. I simply used the patch (adjusted for line #'s in V29) and compiled up mythtv using the patch and it works great in V29. Loving it!

Re: Build from source on ubuntu

Ah, thank you, packaging scripts, perfect! Sorry, always done Centos, didn't realize deb would work for ubuntu, just not familiar with the other dists.

Build from source on ubuntu

So, I came from Centos for the last 10 years, and, am new to ubuntu (xubuntu specifically). In the build from source wiki page, it says: "If you have already installed a pre-built package and you have a need to try out a source code change, it would be preferable to use your distribution's build pro...

Re: Preserve This Episode via API?

Thanks, I totally forgot but I've been in rotator cuff recovery for a while now and it HURTS, badly. At week 13 now. But at least I am getting back in the gym, as a total weakling now, but starting.

Re: Preserve This Episode via API?

Yes, that is true, can be done (now) via a userjob. This was posted before that change of course. I would think the request to make all recorded settings changeable from a single endpoint to be much more important and of course handle this one. Is that an official request on a list somewhere? If so,...

Re: Preserve This Episode via API?

A script is not ok, this is not a solution for the wife. She wouldn't even know how to login let alone type in a command, and no, that's not the way it should be done. I am asking for it to be in the API one day if it is not. I will need to submit an official request I suppose since no one has said ...

Re: Preserve This Episode via API?

The backend is headless. Could I vnc in and do so? Sure, but, my wife cannot. And, I am not around every time she wants to save something and do this. So, no, that is not practical.

Re: v0.29 Mythtv released

In the future, I may well submit patches, but probably only for things that affect me as my time is elsewhere now. However, I absolutely hate it when developers join a project and know everything and make claims it's done wrong, etc. Code should be done to the standards and style of the existing cod...

Re: v0.29 Mythtv released

Craig, not willing to get into the Macports discussion for a third time, we've discussed it, enough said. But you have and continue to do great work and are a huge help to Mac users here. I for one will always applaud all of the very hard work you have done and continue to do. Regarding Mac OSX, you...

Re: v0.29 Mythtv released

Yes, there is such an installer, but it does not behave like a regular app, does not install in normal OSX directories, doesn't work with all the plugins, etc. But it is a lot better than it used to be, since no more terminal commands, good job there. My understanding is it's subject to the same ol ...

Re: v0.29 Mythtv released

It used to be in the app store, not sure why it was removed, you could be right, I was willing at the time to go through it all if it was possible. I don't use OSX any more for the backend or frontend anymore though, so, moot point. I wish someone would do that though. The current setups are too tec...

Re: v0.29 Mythtv released

I got no PM on this forum. There are none in my private messages. Yes, what I was wanting to propose was to make a simple installer, for backend only, frontend only, or, both. Put it back in the app store as it used to be, if that was possible, else, just an installer to be downloaded from mythtv. S...

Re: v0.29 Mythtv released

There were tons of time and experiments needed to get versions, environment variables, etc right for the backend. And you say back end only, but, some back end things use python too. And then you have the processes that use the backend, etc. The backend should just compile without much mucking aroun...

Re: v0.29 Mythtv released

There are 2 versions of what I created and then moved on since there was no interest. I have since used an Ubuntu machine for the backend. So, I no longer have an OSX backend. The first earlier version I had sent to someone on this forum, I believe there is a public post somewhere from him, don't re...

Re: Import Recorder, best way to schedule?

Thank you for confirming my suspicions. I will likely use the former as I want to avoid updating tables where possible (though that's what I did for a living, would just rather do it the official way). When I get back from Spain and the Canary Islands, will complete the coding to add the schedule an...
