Isaac, you rule.
I played with it a bit and it seems to be working pretty well. For my
setup, MythTV is definitely in the "working" stage now and anything
else is just bug fixes and added features :)
I did notice some remaining issues; I don't know if I'll have time to
look into them anytime soon. I'll try to get some stack traces at
- Since the seektable is only there for new recordings, I deleted all
of my old ones. When they're all deleted, the frontend hangs when I
enter the "Watch recorded programs" screen. It displays something
like "There are no recorded programs" and the screen looks fine,
but it's hung.
- If I'm watching a recording, hit Escape, and select "Save this
position", then that recording is permanently unusable: if I try to
watch it again, the frontend segfaults. If I choose "Don't save
this position" instead, everything is fine.
- If a show is recording, and I'm watching it as it records (through
"Watch recorded programs"), then the total recorded time doesn't
update in the progress bar. This prevents me from seeking past a
certain point, even if the show's already been recorded past that
point. For example, if I start watching a show 15 minutes after
it starts recording, then watch for 15 minutes, I can no longer
fast forward, even though it's recorded a total of 30 minutes by
now. If I exit the recording and enter it again, it updates the
total time and it's fine.
Anyway, none of those are critical, of course. Thanks for the MPEG
