    Unity MythTV Scope - Testers needed

    I'm looking for some testers for a Unity scope I wrote for MythTV.
    More information is on our website at http://www.mythbuntu.org/unity-scope-mythtv

    You can send feedback here or in our IRC channel #ubuntu-mythtv-dev

    Version 1.1
    Grab it here https://launchpad.net/~mythbuntu/+ar...buntu1_all.deb

    Features added in 1.1
    * Icons now show coverart (if available) instead of generic video icon
    * Items in MythVideo now available for playback

    Re: Unity MythTV Scope - Testers needed

    First off: Thank you for this, you guys rock!

    I just installed it and tested for a couple of recordings. Aside from getting this bug it works great. Will report in more detail once I have had time to test it more extensively.


    One question: Is it planed for future releases to also access videos (from myth-video). I have few recordings, but an extensive media library in myth-video, so I would love that functionality.

    I hadn't planned that, but it shouldn't be that difficult to add. I'll look at the API a bit next week (moving this weekend).

    Can this be tested on desktops that have Mythfrontend installed?

    Yes. On desktops that have mythfrontend installed, it will play in the mythavtest program. This will give you commercial skipping capabilities, but currently doesn't work so well with compiz. (doesn't fill the screen properly)

    Uploading version 1.1 now that allows playback of Videos in the Videos Storage Group. For some reason, mythavtest cannot playback things from the Videos Storage Group (see MythTV bug http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/10666 )

    Sorry for the delay, looks like the new build (1.1-0ubuntu1) will be up in about 15 minutes with the above bug resolved.

    hi there, I've installed per the instructions and after a reboot I see the mythtv lens, but nothing comes up in recorded shows or videos. I've set it up on a machine that runs a slave backend and a frontend

    Can you check if the following file exists and has your correct backend information in it?

    Code:
    ~/.mythtv-scope-location.conf
