#4421 closed defect (fixed)

Empty Group View in Watch Recordings hangs UI

Reported by: Robin Gilks <g8ecj@…> Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Enter "Watch Recordings" and pop up the menu.

Select "Change Group View" and select an item that results in an empty display (eg. "Show Searches").

Save the selection and now you can't exit from the empty Watch Recordings screen without killing the frontend.

Restarting the frontend allows entry/exit to/from the empty Watch Recordings screen OK.

This appears to be caused by the live preview. If you disable that option (or just switch to a static thumbnail image, the lockups go away.

You can also trigger this lockup by deleting all of the shows in the group, or by going into the "Deleted" group and undeleting everything.

I believe I have this fixed. I'm attaching a patch that should take care of it.

The patch also fixes one other small problem on the same screen. When the "Select Group Filter" screen pops up and lists all the available filters along with the number of recorded programs for each, it counts "Deleted" programs as part of "All Programs" even though it's not supposed to. I've modified it to exclude those programs.

On 0.20.2, this patch appears to resolve the issue I describe at comment #7 in ticket #3099. (Chris, based on Robin's work I'll bet you must've not had live previews turned on when you were unable to reproduce the bug.) I am now able to escape, change views, or otherwise do things at blank Recorded Program screens that before would've resulted in a hang.

[15393] applied the second half of this patch regarding the "All Programs" count on the Recording Group Chooser popup menu.
