Mythbuntu theme

Post by wesnewell » Wed Jun 06, 2018 7:02 pm

I've never liked the idea of just 7 channel listings and 2 hours in the guide so a few years back I modified it for 14 listing and 3 hours for the main program guide <window name="programguide">. That has worked great so far but I wanted 4 hours, so modified the latest mythnutu them fp 14 channels with 4 hours for both <window name="programguide"> and <window name="programguide-video">. This also works great, EXCEPT, when moving the selector pass the 3 hour mark, it doesn't change to the correct program for that time period. Continuing pressing the right arrow key will advance the time period and the selector will jump back, so you can get to the program eventually, but it's just flakey and i'd like to get it fixed. Modified files are schedule-ui.xml and base.xml (which I only added some new font definitions to) Ayone know how I can get in contact with them maintainer or anyone else that could help?

I've contacted him by email. Add a picture of the guide in first post, Find this in fe log when I try to past hour 3. Have no clue what it means. Maybe a limit of the fe, and not a theme problem?

I've got a feeling of déjà vu :roll:
viewtopic.php?t=1358&p=6554

I know Thomas got some stick when he made changes to the Mythbuntu theme last time so he may be reluctant to make such a drastic change. You can't assume what you want is what every user wants. He did make a classic version of the theme minus most of the new changes to keep the mob who don't like changes happy. :shock:

You'll have to bug Roger to complete his zoomable guide grid patch mentioned on the other thread, or dare I say it help him finish it. :idea:

I'm just trying to get the 4 hour version to work right. Any idea what the log post above means? the latest version can be found here for anyone interested.
