Watch TV with no tuners provides no warning

Reported by: Nigel Owned by: Nigel
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.22
Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Clicking "Watch TV" causes the button to flash, but nothing else. -v playback says "TV Error: Failed to get recording show list" [BR? I think SVN used to show a popup "No tuners available?"

This seems to be due to an error (database problem?) - mythbackend was returning zero for both GET_FREE_RECORDER_COUNT and QUERY_RECORDINGS. There are two situations where extra popups could be displayed:

1) No capture cards defined, and 2) No free cards or current recordings

but it is an enhancement, low priority, and not needed for 0.21

Yeah, if all the tuners are offline or busy with livetv you don't get the popup.

Here is a small patch to show the "No tuners available?" popup in this situation.

Shane, thanks for the patch. It does at least display something in scenario 2, but I think we need a different popup message for the two scenarios, and it would just mask the problem in current SVN head and 0-21-fixes.
I have created another ticket, #4693, for the fault.
