GetSavedBookmark API

Post by jabster » Sun Jan 29, 2017 3:27 am

Hi.

Not sure this the right place to ask this, but it is API related.

I'm trying to help troubleshoot the MythTV Player Android app.

I am running mythtv 0.28-9 on arch linux, and I am apparently missing /Dvr/GetSavedBookmark on my backend,

I did some google searches, and it appears this was implemented in 0.28.1. Is there any reason I would not have GetSavedBookmark on my backend? Is this a bug in the Arch implementation of mythtv?

Thanks,
John

It was added on April 10, 2016 in commit [c483102].

Try this command: curl yourBackendHostOrIP:6544/Dvr/version

6.2 has GetSavedBookmark, 6.3 is the latest. I don't know how Arch supports
updates to MythTV, but if you're below 6.2, that's the cause.

The app developer has already opened a an issue on this:

bill,

I get this:
[root@mythtv ~]# curl 192.168.42.12:6544/Dvr/version
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><String/>

And btw, I helped drive that issue. I'm just trying to help him out. :)

thanks,
john

Thank you.

The results of the version test are odd. Wondering if this is related to
the Qt issues Arch users have discovered. The known one was fixed
here: #12782.

Pressed submit too soon. For Arch users, I would have expected the system
to experience SEGVs without being at: v0.28-71-g7c91ab6, which might
explain the empty version string.

Getting SEGVs depends on the version of Qt. You can see yours with:
mythbackend --version.
