Re: What's the recomended hardware to test MythTV on OSX?

So I'm running and compiling on a 14" Macbook Pro - 2015 early edition. I have 4 cores and 16GB of RAM and seem to have no major issues. Basically, if I can do this on a 5 year old computer, pretty much anything newer will work. If you elect to go the Hackintosh route, this site has build guides and...

[Solved] Mythfrontend playback on quarter screen

So I (and a few others on the mythtv forums are experiencing issues with mythfrontend playback where the screen only renders the playback in the bottom left quarter of the screen. This only occurs when playing back non1080 (480p, 480i) videos (i.e. 1080p videos play fullscreen) There are also times ...

Re: [Solved] Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

@Craig, I'm going to move the screen debugging to a new thread. After playing around this AM, I suspect there is a bug (or new feature) buried somewhere.

Re: [Solved] Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

Thanks for the links! I'll try playing around this weekend and see if I can get it working.

I'll also get around to writing a Trac Bug report once I better wrap my head around the problem.

Re: [Solved] Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

VideoToolbox is default. This issue is on video playback (at least on retina displays), some videos do not playback in fullscreens mode (for me anything 480i or 480p). Could be a bug or config issue.

Re: [Solved] Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

It's probably not necessary. I guess I was trying to resolve port consistency issues with the upgrade call, but that could probably create some other unintentional issues (plus a long upgrade cycle...).

Bill - if you remove "upgrade: yes" then everything should be good to go

Also includes an add of the hdhomerun library and calls to "port selfupdate" and "port upgrade outdated" which should addresses Craig's most recent post (Craig, p...

Re: [Solved] Building Mythtv 31.x on Catalina

The issue I'm experiencing with pip is that macports installs pip3 into /opt/local/bin/pip. Unfortunately, ansible is trying to use pip3 which resolves to /usr/local/bin/pip3. If there was an ansible environmental variable to set pip and pip3's path, that would probably fix the problem one problem. ...
