Component: MythTV - Video Library Version: 0.25-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Using mythfrontend version: master [v0.25pre-4709-g7c06592]. I have several files with level 3 and 4. Setting is to start at level 1. When i select Watch Videos i see all files, even level 3 and 4. If i change to level 2, level 3 and 4 files disappear. And trying to go to levels 3 or 4 asks for password as it should be.

I see the same problem. Some more info: When entering MythVideo?, it shows the effective parental level as "0" for the gallery instead of the Level 1 that I've set in the settings.

This issue is effecting me too. It makes 0.25 unacceptible for us because of the inability to restrict children to only suitable movies.

Is there any consideration for Marc Randolph's suggested solution? Working parental levels is far preferable to a one time offer to scan for movies.

Marc's solution won't fix this, we have two different places where level is considered and I'm not even sure the filter code is connected to the default parental level. The code is an absolute car crash, what was once so very simple has become so unnecessarily complicated that I'm very tempted just to delete it all. Or maybe just revert the whole thing back to how it was immediately following the mythui port when it was so much simpler and just worked.

Can you please test the new patch I've attached? This moves the setting of the initial parent level to before the load of the video list.
