On MythTV on Mac OS X you say "firewire support possible" for the macport version of MythTV.
Looking at the code for the portfile it sets the configure option --disable-firewire and the firewire option doesn't appear in the settings.
How does one enable firewire support on the macports version of MythTV?
I have a one-off version of the port that builds 0.25 with firewire enabled. The other necessary ingredient is Apple's Firewire SDK. As I read the license, it may not be distributed in any way and hence can't go on MacPorts.
Only a single user is running Firewire variant at present. Are you interested?
- I am interested. I have the Firewire SDK installed already. What program do you use to change channels with firewire? --Doconnor 17:51, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
- Contact me at ctreleaven at cogeco dot ca . I don't run a Firewire box, myself. There are several scripts on the wiki that might be relevant: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Category:Firewire_Priming_Scripts
Also, I see you wrote the HDPVR Capture on Mac page. I take it you are using it to record? I was wondering if `osascript` would make it possible for Myth to fire off the recording without having to involve Calendar. It is too bad the author of HDPVRCapture doesn't make at least a basic version freely available. I contacted him last year to ask about using his old command line version. He wasn't interested. WCT
- I fried my HDPVR by plugging in the wrong power supply, so I had to get a new one. The HDPVRCapture license is tied to the serial number of the HDPVR, so I would have to buy it again. Because of its instability and problems changing channels I've set up a Virtualbox mythbuntu install for recording instead. --Doconnor 17:51, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
- Sorry about the HDPVR. Are you saying it was unstable or that the Firewire box?
