Re: SPDIF audio via hd pvr

I use SPDIF exclusively. The key is to use something like this: /usr/bin/v4l2-ctl --device /dev/video0 --set-ctrl=audio_encoding=4 It can be added to your machine's startup script (rc.local) or to your channel changer script, though it really only needs to happen once, and not for every recording.

Session timeout

In the past week or two, this forum has gone from having a really long session timeout (a couple of weeks, I think) to just a few hours. Now, pretty much every time I want to look for new messages I have to log in again. Is this really due to a configuration change in the forum, or is it just someth...

Re: Record on any channel *except* this one

Could you just hide the channel (go into mythtv-setup and uncheck the Visible box)? This would prevent anything from being scheduled on that channel. It would also remove the channel from the scheduler grid and searches, so this may not be what you want.

Re: mythlink.pl does not work with 0.27.2 on mythbuntu 14.04

One possibility: The config is read from ~/.mythtv/config.xml. If the user running the script is different form the user that normally runs the frontend/backend, it will be looking in a different location for this file. I'm not sure about mythlink.pl specifically, but it might have commandline optio...

I second the desire for Mark Forums Read on the View New Posts page. More importantly for me, I'd like to see it on the View Unread Posts page.

Ability to control the volume *before* playback starts

What I'd like is the ability to control the volume *before* playback has started, while still in the Watch Recordings/Videos menu. That way I don't have to worry about scaring the cats (or kids, in my case) during that first few seconds of playback while I frantically try to turn the volume down.

Re: Improve efficiency of tuner selection

I think the better idea would be if, as the data is coming in from the tuner, it gets appended to BOTH files at the same time: the earlier recording and the later one. That way, only one tuner would be needed and both recordings would be complete.
