#11838 assigned Bug Report - General

Screen Setup Wizard doesn't work with Frontend Control Socket

Reported by: skd5aner <skd5aner@…> Owned by: wagnerrp
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.27-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I've had some overscan issues that I used to control via nvidia, but thought I'd try the screen setup wizard after upgrading to 0.27-fixes (RC). I tried to leverage the MythMote? app, which uses the frontend control socket to send keys to the frontend, but none of the relevant keys (up, down, left, right, enter, esc) worked when in the Screen Setup Wizard.

LIRC and the Keyboard did work, however - so this bug seems limited to just the frontend control socket. Also the frontend control socket has worked in all other screens, and during playback, without issue.

  • Version changed from Master Head to 0.27-fixes

The screen setup wizard now spawns an external application to bypass limitations in the UI, and thus the frontend control socket and Services API control are not available. The notification service is disabled in the frontend and started in the new application, however network control will need to be proxied through the frontend to operate predictably.
