#11027 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

Unneccessary "All Programs - " text before title in Watch Recordings

Reported by: John Veness <John.Veness.mythtv@…> Owned by: Jim Stichnoth
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.27
Component: MythTV - General Version: Unspecified
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Please look at the attached screenshot from Watch Recordings.

About two-thirds down, on my UK English setup, the text "All Programmes - " appears before the title of the program, that is, in the line "All Programmes - Bill Bailey: Dand...". As I move the cursor down the various "display groups" in the left-hand column, the text "All Programmes - " remains, followed by the program title. If I move to the right and highlight an individual episode, the prefix text "All Programmes - " disappears, e.g. just "Bill Bailey: Dandelion Mind" is shown.

Does the text "All Programmes - " actually have any purpose here? Is it needed? It's presence there doesn't really seem to make any sense to me and is just taking up space.

Sorry, I forgot to do a --version, but I'm running up-to-date 0.25-fixes from mythbuntu repos. The problem shows up in multiple themes, so I'm guessing the text comes from mythtv/programs/mythfrontend/playbackbox.cpp

The "All Programs" is the group filter currently in effect. You can change the group filter by pressing MENU or MENU / MENU depending on which column is currently active.

In ba2c7837525992d37632c4f4fd38dcd1e6f4b21b/mythtv:

Remove redundant "All Programs - " text in Watch Recordings screen.

Fixes #11027. Removes the "DispRecGroupAsAllProg?" setting (Show
filter name instead of "All Programs"), and always uses "All Programs"
as the first group name. Removes the unnecessary prefix from the
titles of the group entries.

Fixes the (not-yet documented) "group" widget of the watchrecordings
window in recordings-ui.xml to always hold the current group filter
name. Themers are suggested to display the current group filter in a
textarea, e.g.:

<value>Watch Recordings</value>
<template>Watch Recordings - %1</template>

In 7c7b44a7da27add500990307144a1e477dcfaff6/mythtv:

Improve the group filter display on the Watch Recordings screen.

Refs #11027. The first entry in the group list on the left is labeled
"All Programs - <current_group_filter>". If the current filter is All
Programs, the label is just "All Programs". This makes it very clear
which group filter is in effect even when the theme doesn't explicitly
add it ot the Watch Recordings screen.
