patch: Add Live TV group to watch recordings screen

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: cpinkham
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords: livetv playback group
Cc: mythtv@… Ticket locked: no


This patch adds a "Live TV" group to the Watch Recordings screen much like the new "Watch List" group. People here seem to find it more user friendly than the multiple actions required to change the group filter.

This doesn't change any default behaviour or ad and setup screen bloat.

Background: Other people in my household found it confusing to change the group filter in the watch recordings screen if they wanted to watch what was being recorded as Live TV on another frontend.

Disclaimer: I'm not a C coder and this is my first look at the MythTV code. It was done quickly but I believe it's within the coding guideline. Do with it what you will.

Not sure about this one, but putting it in my view for now. Possibly best to change the current "Live TV in All Programs" checkbox to a combo to control this.

By all means if there is a better way to do it then please go ahead, as I said, I'm not really a coder.

Basically I didn't want to mix the Live TV recordings in with all the rest of them but wanted an easier way for non-technical people to view/watch in progress Live TV recordings.

Also, the patch I provided doesn't seem to highlight recordings that are currently recording like that screen normally does.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [13111]) Allow the user to choose between displaying LiveTV programs as a group or individually by title when the LiveTVInAllPrograms setting is turned on. With the new mod, you can now display all LiveTV programs grouped together similar to how the Watch List and Search Rule results are displayed on the Watch Recordings screen. The toggle for this is on the Change Recording View popup and is only visible if LiveTVInAllPrograms is turned on and you are viewing the "All Programs" Filter/Group?.

Closes #3235 by applying a similar but simpler patch.
