All my VBoxes are 1st generation though. It would be nice to see if 2nd and 3rd generation boxes follow the same format.
Hi.
I can help here.

Thanks mesb, this makes for a total list of known UUIDs:

Code: Select all

<UDN>uuid:b7531642-0123-3210-aaaa-001646644E02</UDN>
<UDN>uuid:b7531642-0123-3210-bbbb-001640643718</UDN>
<UDN>uuid:b7531642-0123-3210-bbbb-001640643909</UDN>
<UDN>uuid:b7531642-0123-3210-bbbb-00D072644200</UDN>
<UDN>uuid:b7531642-0123-3210-bbbb-00D072645287</UDN>
All of these UUIDs are so-called "version 3" (this is the first digit of the -3210- segment) which indicates, if I understand rfc4122 correct, that this is a so-called Name-Based UUID which is a hash of a namespace string.
It does look like that the first part of the UUID string, the "b7531642-0123-3210" part is indeed a better way to identify VBoxes.

I've committed a simple change to master that seems to find the VBoxes OK.

I haven't used mythtv-setup to add a VBox in a long while and I don't remember it being so clunky before. It sometimes takes ages for the busy dialog to go away and on one occasion it seemed to lock up completely. Anyone else seeing this? In theory it should spend just 3 seconds maximum doing the UPnP search.

Using firmware version 2.59, it doesn't usually take that long for the vboxes to be recognized during the upnp search.

I also noticed that adding the ip addresses and the device id via the manual option does not work.

Quick question, does this fix apply to previous versions v29/v30?

If you mean is v29/v30 broken in the same way then yes they are.

Typically fixes for bugs are committed to master and after a week or so are usually also committed to the current fixes branch so currently v31. We usually don't fix earlier branches although that is at the discretion of the developer.. We want to encourage users to update to the current fixes version it makes life easier for the developers and those helping users if everyone is using the same version :) Also since it can be a year or more between versions it's sometimes hard to remember all the changes so it's not always obvious if a fix is relevant to an earlier version without spending a lot of time testing which most devs don't have.
