#8232 closed defect (wontfix)

Error in OSD prevents relative seek and channel change

Reported by: Matt White <whitem@…> Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords: osd, seek, channel

I updated my main machine last night to 0.23-fixes to do some more testing. Everything went very smoothly (very nice work, developers).

I grabbed the theme contest entry themes, so I could have a look at them and vote.

This morning, I was watching a recorded curling game from last night, and wanted to skip ahead - I do this all the time (press 5 then right, presto 5 minutes ahead). It didn't work...

So, I searched the mailing lists. I found Mike Dean's great explanation of his changes to sticky keys, SEEKFWD, FWDSTICKY, etc (subject "Seek (back and forth) broken in MythTV trunk r23186"). I do use sticky keys, so I went back again and made sure that the changes to my key bindings had been done correctly (it was). Still couldn't do relative seeks.

As I woke up (hey, I'm not seriously conscious before noon), I noticed that the numbers were not even being displayed by the OSD when I typed them in before I hit "right". So, I went trolling through the source to find out what had changed. I couldn't find anything useful.

With logging cranked up, the only thing that happened when I pressed a number key while playing a recording was:

TV: CommitQueuedInput?() livetv(0) qchannum(1) qchanid(0)

TV: CommitQueuedInput?() livetv(0) qchannum(2) qchanid(0)

I pressed "1", then "2" there.

I started this ticket, and decided I'd check liveTV (don't use it much) to see if numbers showed up for changing channels. They didn't (and I couldn't type in a channel and change to it), but I remembered that I had tested channel changing immediately after upgrading and it worked. When I cranked logging up again, typing "1" then "2" again during playback now gave me:

TV: CommitQueuedInput?() livetv(0) qchannum(1) qchanid(0)

TV: CommitQueuedInput?() livetv(0) qchannum(12) qchanid(0)

Long story short, I had chosen the OSD from the submitted "TransBlue?" theme as my Playback OSD. I went and changed the OSD back to something else (blueosd, but others worked the same). Suddenly, I can do relative seeks, I can do channel changes, everything works! Somehow, something in the OSD setup for "TransBlue?" seems to interact with Myth in a way to disable functionality.

I'm completely clueless on themes, but I'll continue trying to figure this out - I wanted to submit this report because it is entirely likely that someone more familiar with that area of the code will be able to quickly solve the problem.

I appreciate the troubleshoot that you've done. It appears to me that the issue is a OSD theme bug, and one for which we have no control-- worth bearing in mind when voting on themes, but not (as far as I can tell) a Myth bug.
