HOWTO: Configuring distcc for use with a Roku PhotoBridge

A lot of folks have been asking how to configure distcc for quick compilation times when developing on the photobridge. I've written a first draft of a HOWTO, which can be found here.

mythroku-0.77 released

Very quickly, mythroku-0.77 is released and available at the download link. Lots of useability updates (safe exit from Live TV when a recording is due), program listing arrow indicators, ECP commands, and more. See the CHANGELOG and README for all the details.

Also a big thanks to Ag Primatic for his substantial help in this release.

More to come next week when my third roku arrives...

mythroku-0.75 released

This is a bug-fix release to address a few more issues from the last release. The fixes made functional the -themedir command, a bug when deleting episodes (the highlighted episode would jump to the bottom of the screen), and not using maximum decoder buffers after navigating inside a recording.

Unseen but performed-- gradually refactoring the source code to simplify and make space for new functionalities. This release is tagged in CVS as "mythroku-0-75".

So head over to the Downloads link and have fun!

mythroku-0.74 released

A long awaited enhancement release is now ready for download on SourceForge (link at left). Many bugs were cleaned out, mostly relating to how the browser handles recordings that occur during playback of another recording.

Some new features include forward and reverse navigation during live television viewing (something that was disabled previously), a new action menu activated by pressing [SELECT] from the browser, and better navigation of recordings in progress (previously the recording would hit END OF FILE when the playback caught up to the end of file at the start of playback).

Have a download, try it out, let me know what you think!

mythroku-0.73 released

Thanks to hondu at the roku forums for working with me and isolating a mythroku crash. With this release, hopefully other folks seeing crashes at startup will be more successful. I've release -0.73 to account for a difference in how live tv channels with and without channel icons are treated by the mythbackend.

I've also released a binary snapshot of GDB, the gnu debugger, which can provide more info regarding why mythroku may crash. Both are available on the downloads page.

mythroku-0.72 released

Finally was able to release 0.72, with two bug fixes. First the forward and back indexing should behave as expected. Second removed a crash when the last episode of a program was deleted. There is still a chance mythroku can crash if the program list changes while you are watching another program. The download can be found at sourceforge.

Source code is available via anonymous CVS. The label for this release is "mythroku-0-72".
