#7601 closed defect (wontfix)

Fixes 0.22 - netflix-ui.xml in default identical to default-wide

Reported by: caseybragg@… Owned by: kkuphal
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.22.1
Component: Themes Version: 0.22rc1
Severity: low Keywords: mythflix default-wide netflix-ui.xml
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The netflix-ui.xml file in default-wide/ is almost identical to that file in default/. When I view mythflix in widescreen, I see a default 4x3 presentation instead of a widescreen presentation.

default-wide: mythtv-release-0.22-fixes/mythplugins/mythflix/theme/default-wide/netflix-ui.xml

Here is the netflix-ui.xml file in default-wide:

I'm interested in starting to contribute. I may be able to fix this myself and submit an update (haven't done this before). If such help desired, please let me know. I wouldn't want to duplicate work if this is someone else's arena. I'm interested in doing several enhancements for mythflix in general.

It's known that there are some screens where the wide version and the 4:3 version are identical. A patch to change that behavior would be very welcome. You can check out:

To work up a patch. You can also join us on the theming mailing list ...

...if you need any support in the task. Since this isn't really a bug (the default screens aren't meant for everyday use, but to maintain operation of the plugin in case the specific theme hasn't themed the screen in question), I'm going to close the ticket, but please don't feel discouraged by that. A small task like this would be an excellent way to contribute and a great introduction to basic theming concepts.

Just a quick follow-up. Note that MythFlix? was removed from trunk MythTV for reasons stated in [22841]. A patch for 0.22-fixes theme is probably fine, but if anyone wants MythFlix? after 0.22, someone will need to step up to rewrite the plugin and maintain it.
