#6064 closed enhancement (Won't Fix)

Patch to save/restore user settings

Reported by: james.meyer@… Owned by: sphery
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: unknown
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The attached patch adds a screen that will allow a user to:

1) save current settings/keybindings to be restored at a later date. 2) restore settings/keybinding 3) copy settings/keybindings from another host 4) restore "default" settings/keybindings. With this version the default settings are not populated. Populating the table will be up to pkg maintainers. 5) delete saved settings

Along with the GUI, a command line client called mythsettings is also provided.

mythsettings -h 2009-01-03 14:49:21.337 -o [save|restore|copy_from|delete] 2009-01-03 14:49:21.353 -t [Default|Default_1|user1|user2] 2009-01-03 14:49:21.353 -n hostname to copy_from (optional)

(In [21405]) Remove the "Save or Restore settings" menu item portion of #6064 that was accidentally committed in [20089].

#6064 has not yet been updated to use mythui, so adding #6064 will be deferred until a mythui version of the UI is available. Refs #6064.

Closing this pursuant to our conversations in the past regarding a MythUI version of this patch. I think the functionality is worthwhile, but we seemed to have stalled on it. If you decide to MythUI it at some point in the future, you can reopen the same ticket. It may be worth building this kind of functionality into our new setup mechanism, too. Something to think about.
