Frontend Service API "Live TV In Guide" does not expose currentlocation

Reported by: SchraderMJ11@… Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.25.2
Severity: low Keywords: frontend service api
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

Steps to reproduce: 1) Send action to open live tv in guide http://<host>:6547/Frontend/SendAction?Action=Live%20TV%20In%20Guide

2) Get status http://<host>:6547/Frontend/GetStatus

Notice there is no currentlocation tag like there is for other statuses.

I am expecting to have some unique currentlocation available on this screen so consumers are aware that not only is live tv showing, but also the guide is showing.

The expected behavior is available if you just view the Program Guide. The current location for the following request is guidegrid.

This Action no longer exists.

Changeset de14c21fe0bf0372009687f2127bf0f457c5a242 in mythtv: Remove the option to start Live TV in the Program Guide.

However, currentlocation isn't populated when watching LiveTV or playing back a recording. currentlocation = GetMythUI()->GetCurrentLocation())

Suggest looking at "state" which will be "WatchingLiveTV" and "WatchingRecording" above, respectively. The "State"state? will be "idle" when in a GUI.
