Re: [Solved] Mythfrontend playback on quarter screen

John deserves much credit too for his extensive testing of the various patches that Mark developed. Without his sizeable time commitment, this problem would not have been resolved.

Well done John!

Re: MythWeb Troubles with 0.28.1

Despite trying the various recommendations here, I have been unable to get MythWeb running under 0.28.1. I installed it using the self installer and, since it's not doing anything for me, I would like to reverse any changes it made to the OS. Any help would be much appreciated. As the wiki page say...

Re: Recordings have a hi failure rate

In my little corner of the world, recordings from OTA broadcast are noticeably weaker in August than the rest of the year due to atmospheric conditions. They tend to clear up as soon as the air is a little cooler and less humid.

YMMV,

... 6) The '--extra-cflags="-fno-stack-check" --extra-cxxflags="-fno-stack-check" ' is new to me. How did you determine this? What happens without? I got these out of the ffmpeg trac. Basically compiling the latest ffmpeg causes similar "stack_not_16_byte_aligned_error" (trac.ffmpeg.org/ticket/8073...

Re: Interest in mythweb cleanup?

It is your 'itch to scratch' but have you considered investing your time in adding missing features to WebFrontend, instead?

https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/WebFrontend

MythWeb's direct access to the database drags against ongoing development of core Myth functionality.

Re: Building Mythtv 31 with Ansible

Do MythGame, MythBrowser and MythNews actually work? AFAICT none of the games work on the Mac. Pretty sure MythBrowser was badly broken in previous versions. And MythNews depended on MythBrowser. Even MythWeather has been broken for long stretches before anybody reported it. With so many weather app...

Re: Building Mythtv 31 with Ansible

I'd forgotten about WarpMe's version of the packaging script. That's probably a better reference: https://github.com/warpme/mythv-osx-build-script The official packaging script served a couple of purposes but a prime one was to let a Mac-based MythTV developer do incremental builds and test on OS X....

Re: Building Mythtv 31 with Ansible

Yes, the one here: https://github.com/MythTV/packaging/tree/master/OSX/build Note that a key difference is that it assumes the user will download a Mac installer from the Qt project to obtain their copy of all the required Qt stuff. The script also downloads and installs all the necessary dependenci...

Re: Looking for OSX MythTV 31 frontend pre-built binary

BTW, the regular cp command (is that what you tried?) won't work. A macOS application is a special kind of folder (directory) containing numerous files that make up the application.

Re: Looking for OSX MythTV 31 frontend pre-built binary

You have to open a Finder window showing the contents of the dmg. If you right-click on the MythFrontend application, you should be able to choose Get Info and it will tell you that the Kind is Application, etc. This will confirm you've got the right thing. Dismiss that window and then drag and drop...

Re: Building Mythtv 31 with Ansible

I'm not sure. I have an old bundled app hanging around that was prepared with the official packaging script (0.25). In that, the libs are all converted to framewords but maybe this helps...

Re: Mythfrontend playback on quarter screen

I'd call it a band-aid; not a solution. I think some code must need tweaking to account for high-dpi screens on macOS. What those tweaks are, I have no idea.

Re: Mythfrontend playback on quarter screen

Have you tried changing settings in Mac System Preferences > Displays. Maybe select one of the Scaled settings and re-launch MFE. See: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202471 The support doc has a section on Using Apps with a Retina Display. Apparently there is an option in each app's Info box, "Op...
