Does the fact that http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/2381 has been marked fixed mean that 0.25 and beyond will actually be using GPU acceleration? [[User:Brianboonstra|Brianboonstra]] 14:01, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Any word on HD PVR support?  Right now, this is the only thing preventing me from moving my backend onto my Mac FE. [[User:justinkim|justinkim]] 23:40, 25 Junel 2012 (UTC)

A frondend running on another Mac can't connect to mythbackend, although it seems to connect to mysql.
 
 
 
My webserver and mysql server are running fine.
 
 
 
However the mythfrondend running on the same machine is connecting fine.
 
 
 
My mythtv is installed via macports. It is 0.26, but not the latest version. I will update when macports is working properly under Mavericks, which they say should be in a few days.

Firewire and Rosetta

In the gotchas section, there is a bit about fixing Firewire problems with Rosetta

  • is this even necessary any more?
  • will it even work on 10.7+?

Somebody using Firewire please comment. Brianboonstra 15:39, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

MySQL Startup

I do not recommend the prefPane startup because it depends on the user account. I have edited the page to include that method alongside the server-style method, however.Brianboonstra 21:46, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

GPU Acceleration Done

Does the fact that #2381 has been marked fixed mean that 0.25 and beyond will actually be using GPU acceleration? Brianboonstra 14:01, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Launchd plist file may have an error under OS Mavericks

I noticed that the plist file for starting the backend using Launchd may have an error as the location given for the MythBackend application did not exist on OS Mavericks.

<string>/Applications/MythBackend/MythBackend.app/Contents/MacOS/MythBackend</string>

I tried the following and now have a working (and launching ) backend:

<string>/Applications/MythBackend.app/Contents/MacOS/MythBackend</string>


This really just has to do with where somebody put the app. I think it's safe to assume that a person savvy enough to be using launchd will be able to put in the correct path. That is the purpose of the phrase in the instructions that says "where we have assumed that MythBackend.app resides in a MythBackend subfolder of /Applications. ".

MythTV .28 on OSX

After a recent HDD meltdown I decided to leave behind my decade old myth db for a fresh install and go wild with upgraded backend mobo, ssd, CPU. The feeling of abandon this brought about made me choose .28 for my new system, despite it not being released yet.

After a few happy months I realized I hadn't tried using my macbook as a frontend yet and started looking around for a build. It looks like there isn't one. Is there any work going on that I could test/play with?

I haven't built 0.28-pre with MacPorts yet and I haven't heard of anyone building it with the packaging script, either. You can get the development tools for OS X (XCode) from Apple. I think you can still get them through the Mac App Store (and free). Then retrieve the packaging script from GitHub and have a go at it! You can get support on the mailing list, forum or IRC. --Pvr4me (talk) 13:54, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
