General

The mvpmc project has largely ceased development, except for occasional updates to support new MythTV releases. As a result new feature requests are no longer being taken. A portion of the code lives on in the libmythtv library, which is used by XBMC and other projects.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. automatic reconnect for mclient (when slimserver restartet)

    when slimserver/squeezecenter is restartet (e.g. when logrotate), mclient should automatically reconnect

    • Remember selections in Filesystem browser

      When you navigate to a subdirectory, and then exit to the next upper level, the directory you were just in is not selected. Instead the selection is reset to the first entry in the directory list. This makes it easy to lose track in a large directory.

      • Auto-discover MythTV back-end

        MythTV 0.21 supports a protocol where the front-end can automatically discover the address of the back-end on your LAN. mvpmc should add support for this protocol to further reduce the end-user configuration burden. See: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Release_Notes_-_0.21

        • Bigger fonts

          Numerous requests have been made to have bigger fonts in mvpmc. While the UI might need some tweaking to support larger fonts, the first step is getting a larger font created. The tools to do this are available for Microwindows. (I'll gather my research on Microwindows fonts and post them to the wiki and link to it in a future comment.)

          • Support for non-UTF8 charsets for filesytem

            I use ISO8859-15 for all Linux servers and desktops. It is really a nightmare to create linkslists for all mpegs, create playlists, ... in utf8.
            Nice would be an option for the charset for mvpmc for the filesystem (video,music,pictures).

            • Improve performance for video playback

              Some videos flicker at the bottom.

              Some recordings can't be played at all - no problem with mythtv using a normal laptop.

              The recordings are normal pal videos - no hdtv.

              • Select music using a webfrontend, VNC or upnp?

                I want to select my music without turning on TV.
                A laptop or later e.g. a N770 could be on to select the music.
                If there would be a webfrontend, a solution based on VNC Server or even a simple utility with parameters which i can start on mediamvp or a upnp solution over lan (possible?) it would be really great.

                • Add Change Recording Group menu to MythTV Recording menu

                  I'd like to be able to switch a show from one recording group to another (existing) recording group using mvpmc. It could be placed between "Show Upcoming Episodes" and "Perform Throughput Test."

                  • Search option

                    It would be great to have a search option. Since i can't use the MythTV protocol since i get errors often after a few minutes i use normal filesystem without any problems. So the search in MythTV would not be enough for me. I would need a search over the filesystem, too.

                    • Group shows as well as categories in the MythTV show browser

                      If you sort shows by category, some categories get very full and it would be nice to see show titles turned into subcategories. Add "All - Newest First" and "All - Oldest First" pseudo subcategories, just as there are at the top-level. Navigating into the subcategory would show the individual episodes in the chosen sort order.

                      • Add Recording Group Filer menu to MythTV Programs menu

                        I switch Recording Group Filter settings all the time, and it's a pain to have to keep going back to the Settings menu to switch them. It would be nice to have more direct access to them from the MythTV show browser.

                        • update mclient to not repeat the first 3 seconds of the first track

                          When start playing a new selection or playlist there is a break after the first few seconds followed by 1 second silence. After that, the selection or playlist starts playing normally without any interuption. This is only by mclient - squeezeplay, softsqueeze, squeezeboxes are not affected.

                            Yes, there is something going on w/the hardware buffer near as I can tell (and remember). If I reset them you miss the first second or so each time you start playing a new selection. If I leave them alone you get what you describe. I usually start playing something and let squeezeplay run its course. So it doesn’t bother me that much. However, this would drive my kid (the button pusher) crazy.

                            Hum, but now that we’re talking about it… I always thought it was the HW buffer inside the IBM chip. The way you worded your comment made me think it just might be squeezecenter trying to fill mvpmc’s buffer. Mvpmc reports on how full it’s buffer is to squeezecenter just like softsqueeze or any other squeezebox. If the report needs to be “aligned/initialized” that might explain the behavior.

                              • Show a place holder category name for shows with no category

                                Some shows recorded with MythTV will have no category assigned, such as ones from a manual recording schedule. In mvpmc they appear in a category with a blank name. Some sort of more user friendly placeholder name should be used.
