Mythfrontend long pause in Watch Recordings and Programme Guide.

Reported by: paulx@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: 0.19
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


When I open the Watch Recordings screen to a new program, it tries to get a thumbnail to display from the master backend machine. This results in "Could not open /srv/mythtv/lib2043_20060316230855.mpg.png. 12 retries remaining." in the log file and a six second pause. After this the thumbnail is created and everything is fine until I move to another program without a thumbnail.

Also now in 0.19 the tv icons are searched for in the current recordings directory before using the supplied path. This again results in a six second pause for each icon, about 42 seconds every time I enter the Programme Guide. "Could not open /srv/mythtv/lib9.gif. 12 retries remaining."

Patch attached, Thanks

(In [9696]) Closes #1547. Decreases the number of retries to open a preview image.

SVN head allows you to choose the number of ringbuffer retries and we do for previews. But since 0.19-fixes doesn't allow you to do this, this patch from paulx adds a little hack to get avoid 12 retries on the preview image; which is a bit excessive...
