Re: MythMusic Unknown Artists/album/etc

I scanned an empty directory to erase my music data and then rescanned (ignoring ID3 tags) and EVERYTHING is not recognised :evil: . It's only a few hundred CDs... any hints on the best way to rip for the latest version of m...

Re: 0.28 Mythfrontend crashes on exit...and continously rest

Hello all,
I don't understand this solution. I don't see any options (other than start frontend on boot) under behavior.

I have used shepherd for years to grab all my channel data. It works quite well for all the channels I'm interested in and is very easy to install (on a linux box at least). Check out

Re: Border on Playback

Changing overscan worked for me too. It is a bit hard to click any of the menus at the 'top' of the screen (they are there somewhere off the screen). I messed with no of pixels and offsets and scaling etc. but things look good now. I also ticked the box to say use a different screen size playback. M...

Re: Start mythfrontend on boot
