Re: More UI features please

Having played about a bit with existing themes I've found that buttonlists & stuff *can* be animated (yay!) but I can't seem to find a way to override the original opengl screen to screen transition effect - this is overriding any nice 'appear' animation I'm trying. So - how hard might it be to over...

Re: More UI features please

Hang a sec.. aren't all the 'new' animations etc tied together with existing Qt functions? I seem to remember they are (I could likely be wrong though)... This being the case it might not be too much effort to bring some new features to themes without having to deal with shaders & junk I don't under...

Re: More UI features please

Heh back when I was playing with this I was already bitterly aware of what Qt could do natively - Qt5+ would even do away with the need for separate painters, but for the fact the VDPAU painter was needed at the time (it likely still is needed).

More UI features please

Something I've looked at trying to implement many a time but it frankly made my head hurt, is making lists (buttonlists, grids & whatever) scroll smoothly. The ability to have transitions on more elements than just popups or whole screens would be neat too IMHO. Yes neat but again it's another thing...

Re: How does one get smooth playback for larger than HD disp

If you're not using nVidia's own driver, you should be. That could fix the problem for you. The open source driver may 'work' but it's nowhere near all there yet. Oh, and disable all desktop effects - they often get in the way of playback too.

Re: New house, but where to put the backend?

There's a plan to put a TV in the kitchen, but elsewhere is a definite no-no for a very long time. For one thing, we don't have the budget for more. I'm likely going to run 2 network cables into every room after the lounge install is done - then maybe by that point a low-power, low-cost frontend wil...

New house, but where to put the backend?

I've recently moved to a newly built house. It's lovely, well laid out & all but as per usual there are no really easy places to route cables or put hardware. We're upgrading to HD soon, and because we have young kids the TV will be wall mounted & there won't be a traditional 'unit' under the TV hou...

Re: Welcome to the new MythTV Forum

Well, hello! I can remember the last time I signed up to a MythTV related forum - it wasn't under very happy circumstances. Heheh. How times have changed!
