#3268 closed defect (wontfix)

Changes to names of Transcoders recording groups not reflected in the on screen menu for "Begin Transcoding"

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Isaac Richards

Cc: Ticket locked: no


If you go into the recording profiles for Transcoders, and change the name of one of the High/Medium/Low? Quality settings to something else (like changing "High Quality" to "Lossless") and then start viewing a video, if you go to the onscreen menu and select "Begin Transcoding", the submenu entry will still say "High Quality" and not "Lossless".

Checked out the new 0.20-fixes SVN and this problem exists still as of r13144.

After having looked at this, it looks like it would be simpler to just disable the ability to rename the groups, or perhaps to just move somewhere without television.

The string "High Quality" is hard-wired all /over/ the place.

For example, once the transcoders have been renamed, ProgramInfo::ApplyTranscoderProfileChange? is never going to be able to find the old one again. Ugh.

Yep. Having looked further, I don't think this is fixable /at all/ without rewriting a fair chunk of mythtranscode so that it can determine how to get from the source video to what is wanted, so that 29 freaking listings in the recordingprofiles aren't needed.
