Additional items for consideration into changelog. This is a list of unknown, TBD, limited scope, yet-to-be-backported, not yet confirmed, and/or trivial items which may or may not eventually be moved to the Release Notes. Most likely, most if not all of these will stay here as "honorable mentions".

  • NVR: Optimize sws_scale usage [24065] [24124]
  • Fix ambiguous MythMovies error [24073]
  • Potential fix for high resolutions by testing all rate values returned in libnvctl [24077]
  • OSX: Add #include <libgen.h> [24081] [24163]
  • VBI: include videodev_myth.h instead of duplicating parts of the V4L api [24094]
  • MythWeb: Add text to the MythWeb Manual Schedule page to briefly explain how Start Date is used for daily recordings [24107]
  • EIT: add EITfixup for reruns on Thor 0.8W Norwegian [24121]
  • EIT: mark MCA EIT data matching DD as AUD_DOLBY instead of AUD_STEREO [24122] consolidate and fix regexp for stereo detection [24123]
  • Replace "Change Ending Time" and "Modify Recording Options" when using the OSD to modify a recording
  • Refactoring of AvFormatDecoder related to ticket #8318 - http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/8318
  • channelscan: Add an error msg if the frequency table is empty - useful for cli scanner [24160]
  • Simplify CC decoding, use same mechanism for DVD encoded CEA-608 as for other embeddings [24166]
  • Use QT 4.6 for Mac OS X Build [24168]
  • Python: Add 'QuickDictData?' class, for a read/write capable structure using the 'DictData?' behavior. [24201]
  • Python: Migrates DB.tablefields and DB.settings to QuickDictData subclasses. Field attributes are now available through the tablefields class, and settings.host.getall() will return all settings available on that host. Internal revision bumped for new features. [24213]
  • PulseAudio: Fix white noise after seeking [24214] - since Pulse still experimental, probably won't include this in the changelog
  • DVD: add dvdnav_first_play(). starts the dvd from the beginning. previous use of RingBuffer->Seek didn't do the trick in all cases. [24238]
  • DVD: resolve problem where pcm_s16be audio codec is detected as pcm_dvd codec instead [21891] and workaround for mp2 playback issues. mp2 sample rate is not detected during stream changes. [24240]
  • Move a few storage related routines out of backendutil.cpp and into MainServer & Convert MainServer::BackendQueryDiskSpace() to use the playbackList to query all connected backends instead of using the encoderList which is a list of backends with tuners. This allows the storage on tunerless backends to be reported along with the rest. [24245], [24246]
  • Terra: Fix misalinged text in MythWelcome [24256]
  • MythNetvision: Now that time is properly being parsed, format the time textareas nicely instead of just displaying the number of seconds. [24441]
  • Edit Arclight netvision windows to use time values. [24443]
  • Update the music player to use MythObservable to dispatch events to any attached listeners [24598]
  • reverts [23528] partially after the evob probe was fixed. Hopefully fixes the Mac OS X stack overflow in Refs #8179. Refs #7233 [24618]
  • This commit is a MythContext reorganization patch. The main goal is to get the non-GUI portions of MythContext deeper into the library dependency tree. [24623] & [24624]
  • MythMusic: Fix a segfault when trying to show the miniplayer without first visiting the music playback screen. [24645] [24664]
  • Ensure we always clean up properly when exiting mythcommflag. [24646]
  • Use <template> in Terra's music miniplayer instead of a hardcoded 'title by artist' string in mythmusic. [24667]
  • Add some star images to the default theme for use in the rating statetype. [24675], [24676], [24677]
  • Add the statetype 'trackstate' to MusicCommon which reflects the playback status. Valid values are playing, paused and stopped. [24681]
  • DVB: wait 1s during diseqc initialization. Refs #8465 [24735]
  • Fixes #7136. Apply a slightly modified version of patch, this simply attempts to generate a preview remotely if the preview generator command is not executable locally for whatever reason. [24739]
  • Fix reporting of minutes in recording when it's over 59 minutes [24787]
  • "Commercial Flagging" is now being rebranded as "Commercial Detection" to encourage the use of clear and concise language and not technical jargon [24793]
  • Fix channel in MythWeb/PHP bindings. Apply changes equivalent to those in [24799] to the (currently-unused?) MythWeb/PHP bindings [24802] [24803]
  • Widen the schedule editor selectors/spinboxes in Terra about as far as I'm prepared to go whilst keeping inline with the design [24865]
  • Fixes #7710, this adds a tie-breaking sort on action for the keybindings [24913]
  • (In [24918]) Fixes #7997, this adds a in is_dir check in the module init code (mythweb)
  • (In [24921]) Fixes #8072, this only forwards to the reduced schedule view when the program does not exist anymore in the db (mythweb)
  • Fixes #8323, this fixes imdb search links [24925] (mythweb)
  • Fixes #8349, More agressive ffmpeg post stream cleanup [24926] (mythweb)
  • (In [24927]) Fixes #8363, this uses recstarts vs startime to find recordings (mythweb)
  • Fixes #8436, this should do the trick preventing pixmap requests from resetting the group/title view [24930] (mythweb)
  • Fixes #7817, this should do escaping properly for all the shell tasks in the weather module [24932] (mythweb)
  • Add a new class, MythLocale. MythLocale primarily reads setting defaults from xml files on startup, inserting preferred defaults, such as language, for the locale automatically to simplify initial setup. [24942]
  • Fix #8511. Reorder Jamu regexp/file parsing to allow one of the previously-ignored matches to work [24947]
  • (In [24955]) Finish up the cache layer, set the default cache to static, and remove the $Channel global. Fixes #7200
  • Fix a chrome rendering bug with the filters on the tv detail page (mythweb) [24970]
  • Fix channel detail view and add a few extra ids (mythweb) [24979]
  • Fix the channel settings editor [24988] (mythweb)
  • Fix an issue with php 5.3 not showing the channel names on the upcomming page (mythweb) [24999]
  • Fix an issue with php 5.3 and how it casted nulls into objects [25003] (mythweb)
  • Add in multi-fetches to memcached and adds in APC as a cache method [25018] (mythweb)
