04 September 10 - 19:35Releasedate of MythTV 0.24 and other changes likely to make it in

Now it's official, MythTV 0.24 will be released on the 1st of October 2010 will be released as soon as all of the show stoppers have been dealt with. The only difference since the last report on changes that went into the development version where that the Editor within the OSD has got some cleanups.

02 September 10 - 19:13Further updates to Willi theme

New version here.

I have been themeing the MythVideo screens even further. It should be about 90% done. At least all popups and filter screens are now functional. A few other fixes where added on other screens including the file chooser. The settings-ui.xml was also added and includes the new theme downloaded feature added to trunk MythTV (Not yet fully tested). A LICENSE file was also added. Get the new version here.

27 August 10 - 19:41Changes in MythTV 0.24

In addition to the changes reported here, the last few days saw some more changes in the code that will lead to MythTV 0.24:

  • DVD ripping from within MythTV has been permanently removed, as it had a lot of issues. You still can rip your DVDs with any tool you like and then access it from within MythVideo.
  • ISOs and VIDEO_TS folders now have Storage Group support and the OSD shows their artwork.
  • Support for XSub subtitles was added
  • CrystalHD acceleration support has been added, but I don't have the hardware to test
  • Themes can now be installed from the frontend via FTP

23 August 10 - 19:35What's new in the development of MythTV 0.24?

I will try to keep you updated on the changes to the current trunk version of MythTV that will eventually lead to version 0.24:

  • the OSD has been converted to MythUI, much theming is still needed, but mine is pretty good already (Willi Theme)
  • HD audio codecs and output have been worked on
  • ALSA device detection was improved
  • Playback and menu support for the Blu-ray disk format is in the works, but I have not tested it
  • Theme download site to be integrated into MythTV, making the process of installing other Themes easy
  • Additional scripts have been ported to the Wiki, which used to be in the contrib folder
  • Themes have gotten some improvement, font declarations have been changed
  • mythnetvision is getting some more content providers
  • the main code was synced with revision 24880 of ffmpeg (adding Native VP8 decoder, AAC SBR and PS (full HeAACv2 support), WebM, libvpx, DXVA2, indeo5, wmavoice, binkvideo, amr-nb)
  • OSD has some more information about the item being payed, like type (recording, dvd etc) codec (mpeg2, mpeg4 etc) sound (mono, stereo etc)
  • better subtitle support (I have not tested), even when zoomed including raw subtitles
  • ability to query the channel list via the network control interface
  • support for the various raw photo formats as decoded by dcraw for MythGallery
  • "Reduce to fit" scaling option in MythGallery
  • faster commercial detection, as an option
  • VDPAU as GUI renderer, in addition to the time tested QT and OpenGL versions
  • OSD Menu has be reorganized into categories (audio, video etc)
  • support for the VideoDecodeAcceleration framework on OS X

23 August 10 - 19:05MythWeb with many, I mean realy many, recordings

I ran into this problem: I tried to view the list of recordings and nothing happened.

The error message from "tail /var/log/apache2/error.log" was the following,

[Mon Aug 23 11:53:09 2010] [error] [client 194.25.15.12] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 82 bytes) in /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/modules/tv/recorded.

To increase the memory limit I used to edit php.ini, but it seams those are only the global values. For mythbuntu you will find the file needing editing here:

/etc/apache2/sites-available/mythweb.conf

Search for the term php_value memory_limit and change it to something bigger. I use 1024M as I have lots of RAM and just don't want to bother with it again.

20 August 10 - 22:14New OSD information for Willi

New version here.

Mark Kendall added a nice feature to MythTV, as of 25750 in Trunk, that allows the user to see some technical information about the item that is being watched. I added these to my current version of the Willi theme, that also includes some improvements. Still not finished is MythVideo, that at least now has some more features. Download this latest snapshot here.

13 June 10 - 23:16Gallery and OSD for Willi

Update: New version available.

While watching some of the Word Cup games I worked on theming the Gallery screens and created a new OSD theme to match Willi. Enjoy. This version is only compatible with development builds of MythTV aiming for version 0.24, as font definitions and the OSD have changed from 0.23.

09 June 10 - 19:35Changing title of many recordings in MythTV

Sometimes I record something that has a way to general title, but I don't want to have to go through 10 instances of it manually. I use the following SQL statement to change the title based on the subtitle:

UPDATE `mythconverg`.`recorded` SET `title` = 'For Queen and Country' WHERE `subtitle` LIKE '%For Queen and Country%';
