Program Guide format

Post by wesnewell » Mon Jun 30, 2014 7:42 pm

Some time back, around mythtv 0.20 you could select the number of rows and timeslots in the program guide. Since then, it's been hard coded in the schedule-ui.xml file and most limit that value to 7 rows (channels) and 4 time slots. So since then I've been modifying these files to allow more rows and more timeslots. It's pita, but afaik, it's the only way to get more. The mythbuntu theme is 7x4, afaik the most of all the themes, so that's the one I used and have since modified it to 14x6. Here it is.
See later post fro newer version.

It's up to the themer to decide how many channels and time slots to show so they have control over how the screen looks.

At the moment all you can do now is maintain your own version of your favourite theme with the changes you require as you are doing now. You can copy your modified theme to the config directory (usually ~/.mythtv/themes) giving it a new name for the directory and editing the name in themeinfo.xml file to match. That way your theme will show up in the theme chooser and wont be modified by subsequent updates.

At some point we would like to add theme inheritance to make maintaining your own theme a little easier so you could just change the screens you wanted and the rest would default to the parent theme.

Here's a newer version of the file. Finally got around to fixing a few minor display problems. This is for mythtv 0.27. Replace your schedule-ui.xml with this one. This will always be the latest revision.
