#11997 new Bug Report - General

PIN-protected recordings shown in Jump to Program OSD

Description

In 0.27, it's possible to play recordings in groups protected by PINs without first entering the PIN, by way of the Jump to Program option in the OSD menu. I believe this is a regression of #2224.

I'm attaching a first pass at a patch, which essentially does the same hack as found in #2224, to prevent the user from selecting recordings outside of the current recording group. However, there are two better solutions I can think of, but which I don't have the ability to implement:

  1. The best solution would be to ask the user to enter a PIN when trying to play a recording in a PIN-protected group that is not the one they are currently viewing a recording from.
  1. An easier (but with diminished UX) solution would be to do a modified version of this patch, which only shows recordings that are either in the same group as what is currently being watched, or in another group that has no PIN.

Rethinking my first suggestion, I would change it to:

  1. The best solution would be to ask the user to enter a PIN when trying to view the list of recordings in a PIN-protected group that is not the one they are currently viewing a recording from.
