mythwelcome not working with lirc post QT4

Reported by: Matthew Wire <devel@…> Owned by: paulh
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Since the QT4 merge lirc does not work with mythwelcome.

It works fine with mythfrontend and mythtv-setup and claims to initialise with mythwelcome: "lirc init success using configuration file: /home/mythtv/.lircrc"

The code looks identical and I have been unable to change anything to make it work. This is with latest svn.

I can confirm that this is indeed a bug. I am using Feisty Fawn and QT4 compiled SVN version of mythtv

I can reproduce this also.

Interestingly if it's started as 'mythwelcome -s' then it works on the settings screen. If you start it as 'mythwelcome' and press F11 to show the settings screen it doesn't work! So it appears it's something WelcomeDialog? is/isn't doing that is the problem.

Like you say it initializes properly it is just that lirc_nextcode() in LircClient::Process(void) is blocking and never returns anything.

It's got me stumped for the moment :-(

I've just tried that patch and unfortunately it doesn't seem to have made any difference here.

(In [17810]) Switch the Lirc, Joystick and AppleRemote? pthreads to QThreads.

Nigel you may want to check the AppleRemote? stuff I couldn't test any of that.
