#4771 closed patch (fixed)

Screensaver/DPMS does not deactivate with keypress in mythwelcome

Once the screen-saver/DPMS has been activated, it cannot be de-activated using the remote. The only way to activate the screen is to press "OK/Enter", wait for mythfrontend to start, then press a key on the remote.

I tracked down this regression to r15354. Reverting this revision, allows the screen to be reactivated by pressing any remote key.

This revision changed the MythContext initialization to pass in "false" as the first argument. This has the effect of setting "m_gui" to false, and the "ScreenSaverControl?" is not created/enabled.

The attached 1 line patch fixes the problem and should be applied to trunk and 0.21-fixes.

I'm not sure why this particular change was made, but the attached 1 line patch fixes the issue. I suggest this be applied to trunk/0.21.

(In [16279]) Fix MythWelcome? not de-activating the screensaver on key/remote presses. Unfortunately this does mean the return of the pesky warning dialogs if MythWelcome? starts up before mythbackend is ready to accept connections.

Lesser of two evils I think.

Fixes #4771.
