Hi

Is it possible to configure Myth Frontend to go staight to Watch Live TV at startup instead of displaying the main menu?

I also control my TV using LIRC and a serial connection. Would it be possible to run the command to turn the TV on when the PC boots or when the Frontend is started?

Thanks

did you ever figure this out? I can't believe its so difficult to find info on this as I'm still trying to do it myself. I assume its some kind of change to the default frontend config. I'm currently looking into having my remote fake it in a sequence but that seems kind of messy.

Thanks

Hi,

I think mythfrontend supports a telnet interface. So it might be possible to use something expect to create a telnet connection into the frontend and issue the required commands.

Have a look here:- http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Telnet_socket
