View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can MythTv Shutdown be stopped if other apps are running?

June 27th, 2009, 06:58 PM
I'm running MythTV on Jaunty 9.04 64 bit. I've just added a shutdown command in MythTv to stop my PC running all night when a recording stops, but now MythTV shuts down unless there is a recording scheduled in the next 2 hours.

Can I get it to check if Transmission, Evolution, Firefox, or VLC are running? and only if "No" then to shutdown?

This guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MythTV/Install/WhatNext/ACPIWake In the MythShutDownCHeck sections hints that it can be done but I can't find any further guidance or examples. Anyone point me in the right direction?

My settings in Mythbackend setup:

Block shutdown before client connected: Unchecked
Idle shutdown timeout: 180
Max. wait for recording: 120
Startup before rec.: 0
Wakeup time format: hh mm
Command to set Wakeup Time:
Server halt command: sudo shutdown -h -P now
Pre Shutdown check-command: exit 0
