I get an error in mythfrontend on all my frontends both when running 0.25 and master (using mythbuntu packages, version below).

I have attached the output of the python script when run from a terminal with the same user as the one running mythtv.

I can assist in testing if needed.

Best regards, Rune

My locale is:


Mythtv version:

mythfrontend --version

The error as reported only applies to 0.26, and the incomplete handling of timezone within the Python bindings, with the database now being UTC. Please open a separate ticket with whatever problem you are having in 0.25.

In b393cbc969f26c470e0ae38e48d9780b67dad604/mythtv:

Complete timezone handling in Python bindings following UTC change.

This adds proper timezone handling to the Python bindings, parsing zone
information out of the system TZif files. On systems without those
tables available, the code will revert to a simple offset, yielding
potentially inaccurate times when used on old recordings.

All user interaction with datetimes will be in local time, unless forced
otherwise by a timezone-aware datetime object. Times are converted to
UTC automatically for interfacing with MySQL and mythbackend.

Refs #10941

I'm leaving this ticket open for now, as the timezones will still need
to be created in a different manner on Windows, and potentially OSX.
