Three quick things...
1. 0.18 + DVB
For some reason I lost the UK DVB-T EPG data after updating to 0.18, no matter
what I did I got no guide data (compile flags definitely correct). I updated
to CVS yesterday and all is now well again. Commercial flagging is now
working like a charm as well (in 0.17 it never really worked for me). I also
had issues with the program guide hanging on me if I tried to move away from
the initial starting point but this is also now resolved. All in all, many
thanks for an excellent release that solved some other minor niggles I had as
2. Deleting files in MythMusic
This may sound dumb, but how in Earth do you delete a file in MythMusic? I
have a few CDs with empty tracks a few seconds long that I'd like to remove.
3. Internet connection
Some Myth plugin features require an internet connection to work properly, I'm
on dialup and hate on demand dialling (I don't care if something wants to
update itself at 3am, I do NOT want my modem dialling while I try to sleep!)
so I threw together a quick script to toggle the dialup internet connection
when I press a remote button. It's only a few lines and is included below in
case it's of use to someone else.
# Toggle internet connection from within MythTV and show info on OSD.
# For a list of available interfaces use cinternet -I
# PROVIDER should be the name of the ISP as configured in KInternet
if cinternet --interface-name=$INTERNET_INTERFACE --status|grep -q
mythtvosd --bcastaddr=127.0.0.1 --template=alert
--alert_text="Establishing internet connection."
cinternet --interface-name=$INTERNET_INTERFACE --provider-name=$PROVIDER
mythtvosd --bcastaddr=127.0.0.1 --template=alert --alert_text="Closing
cinternet --interface-name=$INTERNET_INTERFACE --stop
