Hello everyone,I had finally had enough!
The orbiter remote for MythTV..._SUCKED_ ... it sucked harder than a bucky ball through a quantum singularity in a wind tunnel.The keypad is gone.
I replaced it with a data grid that shows the currently playing shows on each channel. selecting a channel simply tunes it. I have made variants for both horizontal and vertical (PDA) screen orientations, as well as the mobile orbiter variant. The Mobile Orbiter variant shows a data grid where you can scroll and select the channel to tune. What about the keypad?
the keypad? it created more problems than it solved. Okay, so you know SCIFI is channel 62... but what if you also have a satellite TV box that has a channel 62? which one do you want? .. also, tuning channels with sub-muxes (digital television) was difficult, because sometimes it's 25.1, sometimes it's 25#1, sometimes it's 25_1....well.you get the idea...
The remote is now used in 0810, the changes have been checked into sqlCVS, and I use a new designobj to implement it, 5657. The old mythtv remote, 2121 is still there, should you want to change it back.I have recorded a small demo of it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dt1n5etw_9sWhat if I want to try it?
Just do an sqlcvs update of the designer repo, and place this file in /usr/pluto/orbiter/skins/:http://tschak.homelinux.com/xfer/tvchannelbarv8.png
after which, regenerate your orbiters...and start TV.There MAY be a bug which causes a black screen the first time you try TV on a boot... just restart TV and you'll see the remote correctly.
