Re: MythSocket Failed to connect

It's been a month or so now, so my memory of the exact error is hazy for me but in my experience I had set up mythTV only to be used on the one box. So there was a mySQL config file was defined as expecting connections from 127.0.0.1 (localhost). Commenting out this line allowed connections from out...

Re: Using ratings: G PG-13 R etc

In my situation (mythVideo) I made use of the otherwise unused 'category' field (in my database). Then I ran a SQL update to set the category to 1 (my kid safe category) where the rating was G, PG or PG-13. Next, I set the filter ('f' in mythVido) to category 1 and chose 'save' so that it defaults t...

Re: Newbie simple install walkthrough

I use MythTV or specifically 'MythVideo' (which used to be a plugin and is now integrated into the main program) to manage my own video collection. I don't have a tuner any more to record TV, though maybe I'll give that try again in the future. Anyway, if you were planning to download video from a s...

Re: Using ratings: G PG-13 R etc

I can certainly agree about the utility of having a way to filter video collections for kids (and even provide a lockout for some titles). Pressing 'f' in mythVideo to pull the 'filter' menu provides some utility but I've always found it lacking. At first I thought updating it do allow ranges of val...

Re: video files, mysql

Hi All, I assume that mythtv uses the mysql database to store the metadata pointing to the video files (and of course other stuff). I assume the files themselves are not in mysql, instead their name (and location if several storage locations are used). Is that so? Correct. File location settings ar...

Re: Move from Sage TV

Are you planning to run MythTV on a linux box? If so, then you may find the transition 'hard' because of (assumed) inexperience with a new O/S. I know I've spent the last 4-5 years learning lots not directly related to MythTV. However, ubuntu has a good support base, and Mythbuntu might simplify thi...

Planing/roadmap/design/function discussions?

Where is the appropriate place for a discussion about functionality/design of areas of mythtv? I was looking at the MythVideo filter. Wishing it had a different layout, diferent features. Wondering whether I could turn my meager skills to poking through the code to re-order, simplify, add a bit to t...

Re: Keyboard shortcut to 'mark as watched'

Easy to add in code? Or easy to add within the keybinding facility already included as a feature of the software?

Keyboard shortcut to 'mark as watched'

In MythVideo it's a bit tedious to mark a video as watched -- having to navigate menu>submenus.
Is there a way to set a keyboard shortcut for a function like this?

Keyboard shortcut for done button?

I use mainly mythVideo but I'm sure this applies everywhere. Many screens have a 'done' button. Hitting enter usually activates the currently selected widget in some fashion instead of triggering the submission. Is there a keyboard shortcut for the done button? (universally) Is there a way to define...

[Solved] MythVideo 'filter' widgets

I would like a widget that is similar to the 'user rating' widget except that it would pull videos with the 'rating' specified (e.g., MPAA -- G PG PG-13 etc).

Does anyone know where the 'widgets' are defined?

(I'm calling them 'widgets' based on what I've seen in the video-ui.xml theme file)

Re: Using ratings: G PG-13 R etc

I had hoped that maybe the menu configuration was theme based and that someone had implemented a theme that did in fact make use of filtering on this field. Perhaps I should ask over in theme development (or elsewhere in the dev forums) if it's not already been done.

Re: Using ratings: G PG-13 R etc

New information: If I type 'i' > 'video info' > view details then it _does_ show the movie rating in most cases. I wasn't seeing it in the database itself (as I looked in the wrong place ... it's in the videometadata table under 'rating'). The question still remains though ... can you filter the vid...
