Talk:MythTV on Mac OS X
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)
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
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.
I tried the following and now have a working (and launching ) backend:
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)
