Re: Looking for guidance, what to buy, what to repurpose

Q1: mythtv-setup needs a X11 session set up. Others know more about doing that remotely than me. Q2: The HDHomerun Connect Duo currently available from Silicondust is a great solution for OTA. If you find 2 tuners inadequate in the future, you can keep adding Duo's until you have enough! Q3: No expe...

Re: Building MythFrontend 30.x

Ahh, OK. I know that message has the "Error: " prefix on the line but that is actually port install working as it should. The Qt software is 'special' because there are such a huge number of modules and the Qt project only targets very specific versions of the Mac operating system for particular rel...

Re: Building MythFrontend 30.x

...I built with 10.11 because at the time, that was the latest my main Mac could run. It actually caused me a little trouble with MacPorts. I had to force it to grab an older version of QT5. ... If you happen to know, which Qt version caused issues? What version worked OK? What were the symptoms of...

Re: Log file for Pre-Built MythBackend

If you installed with the all-in-one installer from SourceForge[1], all logs are in:

/opt/dvr/var/log/mythtv.28

Re: Who fancies a video Advent Calendar exclusively for MythTV users?

Thanks Paul. Re platforms, I literally don't know what platforms can be supported with QML. iOS and Android? iPad? AppleTV and other streaming boxes? To me, that is (was?) the major opportunity with the WebFrontend--the potential to be able to access recordings from any device which could understand...

Re: Who fancies a video Advent Calendar exclusively for MythTV users?

In the fullness of time, what platforms do you intend to support with this? Clearly you've put a lot of time and energy into this project. Why this and not, say, flesh out the WebFrontend?

Re: Is there interest in compiler support patches to old branches

Hi: What about opening a ticket on the MacPorts Trac with the patches? https://trac.macports.org/newticket [need to be logged into Github to submit] Could you explain more about the patches? When you say UI code and configuration, what fixes does that include? When I tested 5 or 6 months ago, the re...

Re: New iOS-app for managing MythTV

Hey Frans: I would find it handy to have a way to display only movies. Especially with a filter for 'show only movies with a rating of 7 out of 10 or higher'. I'd like to be able to scan for upcoming movies that are worth recording. Small thing, but can you display Season and Episode information whe...

Re: Job queue is backed up

Commercial flagging works for me 99.99% of the time. I think the only time I've had stuck commflag jobs was when the recording was subtly damaged. It seems to abort on severely damaged recordings. What is the source of your recordings and have you noticed any glitches?

Re: New iOS-app for managing MythTV

Doh! I should have recognized the < and > buttons. Still, even though I have only about 20 channels that I receive over-the-air, I think there must be a better interface. Somebody that gets hundreds of cable channels would be pretty frustrated. I do not get additional guide guide when I pull up at t...

Re: New iOS-app for managing MythTV

... I've been experimenting a little with playing of recordings on your iOS-device. That would be cool functionality to have, I think. The server needs to set up an HLS-stream for this. I am currently trying out OBS Studio (Open Broadcaster Software). Let's say it's not trivial. :-) To be continued...

Re: New iOS-app for managing MythTV

Ahhh, I didn't notice that it was showing listings from yesterday. I see entries for programs from more than 12 hours ago. Why show those? I have more than 2 screenfuls of old listings to scroll past. I confirm that the buttons you mentioned do appear for programs airing in now or in the future. Reg...

Re: New iOS-app for managing MythTV

Hmmm, perhaps I'm missing something obvious but I don't seem to have any button. This is what I see when I tap a program in the EPG:

Re: New iOS-app for managing MythTV

Hi all, there is an updated release of the Glorious MythTV app for iOS. It is pretty usable right now (or so I think). It gives access to the EPG, upcoming recordings and completed recordings. Also, the functionality for managing recordings is now in pretty good shape. You can manage recordings rul...
