Lost Window Focus - "Watch TV" when tuner busy

Reported by: Bob H <bob.havlin@…> Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.22rc1
Severity: low Keywords: lost focus
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Hello, I just compiled 0.22-RC1, upgrading from 0.21-fixes. I noticed that keys do not work if the tuner is in use when I go to "Watch TV". I think the issue results because there is a popup telling me the tuner is in use and I must either go to that channel or exit.

Thanks, Bob

I should add: If I simply Alt-Tab once, and then back to Frontend, the focus problem goes away. But this is not really a solution via a remote control.

Do you have a window manager running?

Yes: xfwm4 This is a mythbuntu-9.04 install that I am working with. However, I am compiling and not using packages.

I get similar symptoms in mythvideo, where I select to start a video, I get the "starting" graphic, and then a brown window (possibly the mythwelcome screen, terra is my theme). I can hear the audio of the video, and hitting alt-tab twice gets the video window up. This only needs to be done once for the session, as subsequent videos display ontop. Seems like the window order is out of whack. I use LinHes?? R6, with the svn packages (22494).

This might only be a problem when VNC is running too.

No, it is not VNC related. I have the same problem without VNC

I got the same problem. Does anybody know a workaround?
