Airplay playback doesn't disable xscreensaver

Reported by: gt.myth@… Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Video Playback Version: Unspecified
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


When playing back standard videos or recordings a timer prevents xscreensaver from displaying.

Playing back Airplay videos with a recent 0.25 branch frontend, xscreensaver kicks in after the specified idle time.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Configure xscreensaver on a frontend to display after 1 min of idle time
  • Run mythfrontend with AirPlay? enabled.
  • On an iPad, play a YouTube? video and redirect it to AirPlay? on the frontend.
  • Don't touch the keyboard etc for 1 min after which xscreensaver will be displayed.

The original xscreensaver support seems to be in ticket #29 but those changes might well be superseded.

Apart from this snag Airplay is a fantastic addition to MythTV. Thanks to the devs for including it :-)

What the player does has nothing to do with AirPlay?... should be handled by whomever is supporting the player
