Cannot create audio CD - option grey

Description

Did I miss something or is the Burn audio CD feature in mythmusic not yet implemented? With a playlist totalling about 75 minutes and a disk in the burner I press '3' then go to active play queue and try to choose burn a cd however this option is grey/unselectable. The closest option I have available is to burn an MP3cd, when I select this I get a progress bar that sticks at 2% for a few moments before mythtv claims the cd was burned sucesfully.

The following appears in my frontend log after I have tried to burn a MP3cd

2007-10-12 09:35:16.555 XMLParse::LoadTheme? using /usr/share/mythtv/themes/default/music-ui.xml Running: mkisofs -graft-points -path-list /tmp/fileXdGXjg -o /tmp/fileRYb9oe -J -R Running: cdrecord -v dev= 0,1,0 -data /tmp/fileRYb9oe

Could this be related to the fact that the music on my media centre is stored in a mixture of OGG and MP3?

Looking at the code the 'Create Audio CD' option is always disabled.

The 'Create MP3 CD' option just copies the files as is so it doesn't matter what format they are.

When I tried it myself it also failed. It looks like a permissions problem. You can check that by running as the user that runs mythtv

cdrecord -dev=ATAPI:0,1,0 -checkdrive

if the last line that lists the supported formats is blank then try running the same command as root. If it then lists the supported formats properly then you know it's a permissions problem. You should get something like

Supported modes: TAO PACKET SAO SAO/R96P SAO/R96R RAW/R16 RAW/R96P RAW/R96R

I could get it to work as the mythtv user by using -dev=/dev/cdrom as the device which I know has the correct permissions because I use it to create DVDs.

So basically this isn't a MythMusic bug but a setup problem.

I am attaching a patch to remove the Create Audio CD from the popup as it is currently disabled as you pointed out.

I think this is a sensible approach as leaving it permanently disabled leads to user confusion.

(In [17369]) Don't bother showing the 'Create audio CD from playlist' menu entry since the code to do the creation was never implemented.

Patch from Roo. Refs #4074.
