#11624 closed Patch - Bug Fix (Won't Fix)

program.originalairdate is unreliable filter for New Shows search

Reported by: rshendershot@… Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: unknown
Component: Plugin - MythWeb Version: Master Head
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

It's not stored in UTC, and recent pilots have been released late so it reflects the original airing schedule, not current first airing date.

attached patch also constrains movies to recent 1 year b/c today's lineups have many more channel than they did when the query was originally devised.

patch also filters SIGN%OFF which appears in my lineup and probably does for many.

fix for UTC in MythWeb 'New Titles, Premieres' canned search

I also removed program.stars filter since user asks for a type but not necessarily a favorite. apologize if I got the ticket severity or priority mucked up. tried to restore to default after noticing the statement in howto but after I'd already changed them.

Given Mythweb is EOL, I'm closing new features. This should be done via the backend webserver now.

I cant get a google search to locate any mention of MythWeb EOL and it's such a valuable tool. It works ok with 0.27 are you saying it will be dropped from 0.28 or is the timeline a little further out? thanks!

While it has not gotten high visibility in all locations, it has been discussed on (one or more) MythTV lists (users list at http://www.mythtv.org/pipermail/mythtv-users/2014-February/360095.html and the dev list, but I do not have a reference), but perhaps not in the ones you regularly read. Anyway, the essential functionality of MythWeb is being brought into the MBE, targeted for release with 0.28, which will eliminate the need for complex web server configurations, and problems due to MythWeb's (sometimes incorrect) use of internal facilities and direct database access (and the Services API is being improved to support the new functionality too, with consistent use of things like UTC, which probably addresses at least part of your patch). There are some who may try to keep MythWeb on life support for a bit longer, but no new patches or requests for changes to the existing MythWeb should be submitted, nor expected to be addressed, and my guess (and it is only a guess) would be that by 0.29/0.30, MythWeb will be deleted entirely from the repo (sooner if no one commits to supporting it with other internal MythTV changes, I would guess), since it will no longer track the internal MythTV features/functions. Any significant dev efforts for enhancement and new functionality is going into the new internal web interface and enhancing the Services API. Instead of lamenting the old, deprecated MythWeb, contribute and enhance the new internal server, available for testing in your development environment even now. While not 100% functional, nor feature complete, test and contribute now. Avoid the release time rush (requesting changes 1 week before release is not likely to be accepted). So you do not forget, test before midnight tonight. Remember, if you do not test, and contribute, your special needs might not make it to the release. Perhaps someone will create a forum topic to track bugs, or feature requests for the new service. And while no doubt your mileage will vary, some who have tried it have reported to have been impressed.

Thanks for your detailed reply! I've not yet set up mythtv development env but -as you say- now is the time. I hope I didn't appear to be resisting MythWeb's replacement as I was mostly concerned about its features being continued in some form. I am concerned about MBE web server security but I don't see it as a show stopper and have already used its services in my own code...

The patch I offered was to restore this canned search, and is a very simple thing, so I hope you might reconsider including some form of this in an update. It broke with the UTC change but was probably on life-support as SchedulesDirect? data has changed the use of this field.
