View Full Version : [SOLVED] Boxee-like functionality in MythTV
April 1st, 2010, 02:09 PM
I'm building a Mythbuntu box, but I also watch a lot of web shows. Is there a plugin for Boxee-like functionality to MythTV, or should I just switch between the two?

You can just add a button to launch Boxee from myth menu; this is what I did - just beware that the 64bit version run SLOW on Mythbuntu (it is ok on Ubuntu) - see the appropriate thread here...
This is what you have to do:
(overwritten at any update...)
For anyone using Mythtv .22, adding a launcher to the menu is slightly different because of MythUI.
Additions to /usr/share/mythtv/themes/defaultmenu/mainmenu.xml
If you have custom icons, additions to /usr/share/mythtv/themes/nameoftheme/menu-ui.xml | In my case, /usr/share/mythtv/theme/blootube-wide/menu-ui.xml
If this doesn't work for your particular theme, run mythfrontend.real from a terminal, check the paths of the window and menu themes loaded, and make the changes accordingly.
