OS X Installer - 0.28.1

Postby pvr4me » Wed Feb 15, 2017 3:29 pm

Hello Mac users:

Well, it has been a long time coming but I’m pleased to announce a new all-in-one installer for MythTV 0.28 on OS X (aka macOS). This one is really a big step forward for new users: no more Terminal commands required!

What's changed?
+ up-to-date version of MythTV 0.28.1 from the Fixes-0.28 branch.
+ install process simplified--no more Terminal commands required to get the database up and running!!
+ WebFrontend -- check out the initial version of the planned replacement for MythWeb
+ lots of pesky little things (like fonts) are fixed.
- Now requires OS X version 10.9 or later.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/macpor ... installer/

As usual, the installer (built with MacPorts) provides everything for a self-contained Mac-based system:
-backend and database (MariaDB)
-frontend (including selected plugins)
-Perl, Python and PHP bindings
-Both WebFrontend and MythWeb, for accessing and controlling your Myth system via a web browser
-all the support programs and packages to make everything 'just work'!

Updated instructions are at:


Enjoy! Please post with any problems or issues here on the OS X forum.

The MacPorts guy.
