Restart Mythtv key
Give the mythtv user permission to restart mythtv via sudo. Edit /etc/sudoers and add the following line:
mythtv ALL=NOPASSWD: /etc/init.d/mythbackend
If you are running mythtv as a different user you will change mythtv to the user name you are using.
This sets up sudo so that user mythtv can do "sudo /etc/init.d/mythbackend restart".
Add something like this to the lircrc file in your ~/.mythtv directory e.g. if user fred runs mythtv on your system this would be /home/fred/.mythtv/lircrc:
# Power Off/Exit begin prog = irexec button = OFF config = /script/to/re-cycle/everything end
