mythtv-setup Video Source issues

Reported by: David George <david@…> Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.22-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I have two lineups named hdtv and directv. Setting up video source hdtv always shows Data Direct Lineup: DIRECTV ... instead of hdtv. I set it to Local Broadcast ... and it is saved in the database correctly, but when I go back into Video Source setup it says DIRECTV ... again.

Also, after arrowing down past Channel frequency table get stuck in a loop between "If this is enabled the data in this source will be updated with listing data provided by the channels themselves 'over-the-air'" and "Run xmltv configure command." The only way I have found to get out of this is Alt-F for Finish.

More information on the second issue David reported:

When configuring a video source to use EIT, as soon as EIT was selected as the listings grabber and I keyed down to and selected channel frequency table, further 'down' keystrokes entered a loop for all XMLTV grabbers found, iterating through the 2 messages David reported for each grabber.

If you persist and continue to press 'down' enough times, you will reach the end of the loop and the Finish button can be enabled. A shorter path to reach the bottom of the screen without needing Alt-F is to counter-intuitively press 'up' once the freq table is selected to reach the video source name field, and then press 'up' again to reach the buttons at the bottom of the screen.

Maybe someone can have a look at this one for 0.23?

Milestone: 0.23unknown

Once again, the plan to completely replace all of the setup UI code has made it very unlikely that this setup UI bug will be fixed for the release. Proper values are still stored in the DB--the only issue is that the UI does not show the currently specified lineup. Pushing to unknown.

Not, strictly speaking, a dupe, but Ref #8262 since nobody is going to fix it, it's just going to get rewritten.

(In [26662]) Fix tab order and focus issues in video sources setup. Fixes #8726 ( comment:7:ticket:8726 ). Refs #6637 ( comment:1:ticket:6637 ).

This was broken in [17597]. Because the XMLTV_generic_config widgets were added to the XMLTVConfig after the XMLTVConfig is created and displayed, they were added as (stacked, obscured) visible widgets, and, therefore, receive focus when tabbing. The patch basically reverts the non-blocking part of [17597]. In the worst case, the blocking may cause a delay of 25s (until timeout), but generally should be much shorter. The change, however, makes the screen functional and, since the screen is a Qt-based screen whose code will be replaced in the setup rewrite, I don't feel it's worth trying to salvage the non-blocking functionality.
