Hmm. The OSD (on screen display) is part of the frontend so it would not be
on the backend. It also uses UDP, not TCP. That said, it does not show up on
my system either using either the lsof -i command you ran or 'netstat -a'.
It still works for me.
One thing that everyone should be aware of (and its documented in the
mythtvosd README) file is that your theme needs to provide support for
the notification areas. My patch provided an update to the osd.xml and added
a few .png files that should be copied to 'blueosd' theme when you install
mythtv via (make install). If you are using the default 'blueosd' be sure
your osd.xml is updated and that you have osd-alert.png and
osd-callerid.png. On my system they go in
/usr/local/share/mythtv/themes/blueosd. If you are running a different theme
you need to add the appropriate code to osd.xml and provide .png's to match
(you can reuse the .png's but they wont match your theme).
Perhaps mythtvosd is working but since there is no area specified to display
the notification you just don't see anything?
