MythTV And Home Automation

I've been a long time MythTV user and home automation hobbyist. Finally got around to blending the two together. Most of the home automation revolves around a custom Android app. Using MythTV API the phone displays the current TV listing and recently recorded shows. When you click on the show you wa...

Re: Problem Calling /Frontend/PlayRecording From Alexa Skill

After the sendAction the page displayed on the frontend does not change. I didn't actually try sending the play command because I assumed the sendAction didn't work. I will try sending the play command after the sendAction command.

Sorry about the slow responses, I've been traveling a lot.

Thanks

Problem Calling /Frontend/PlayRecording From Alexa Skill

I'm working on an Alexa skill to control mythtv via voice command. Everything works fine some times, other times the playback won't start. I'm using the restAPI, the frontend flickers when I request playback but nothing plays. I repeat the command and playback starts. When playback ends, the origina...
