Need some more detail here. With the backend running, type this: mythbackend --setverbose http:debug,upnp:debug

Then, try to connect using your app. When it fails, attach (don't paste it here) the backend log.

With the additional debugging, we may be able to see what endpoint is being used and duplicate the crash. If not, you'll get the chance to run gdb and attach its output. I'm assuming you mean segv etc. by "crash". I'm also assuming that your app uses the Services API (which underwent multiple changes in 0.28.)

Are you using QT 5.6 on the backend system? This may be a duplicate of #12782

Replying to stuartm:

Are you using QT 5.6 on the backend system? This may be a duplicate of #12782

My apologies for not replying to your request for more info earlier but I have been a little confused. Recently, I have been struggling to get it to segv consistently. I upgraded from QT 5.6 to 5.7 on 16 June and it did not appear to be as bad. I know that this is very vague and it would still crash but I couldn't find a repeatable action to cause it.

Yesterday, (26 June) I compiled the latest version from git (fixes/0.28) and the problem seems to have resolved itself. I was showing similar symptoms to #12782 and also on an Arch Linux system. May I suggest that we consider this issue resolved?

Regards Brendan
