UK MHEG not working correctly

Reported by: Matthew Wire <devel@…> Owned by: stuartm
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.24
Component: MythTV - DVB Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords: MHEG

As reported on the dev mailing list, UK MHEG is not working correctly for some users.

On TV channels the menu background appears with no text. On radio channels nothing appears - just a black screen.

Attached is a mythfrontend log with -v mheg enabled: Entered TV, changed to BBC 1, pressed red button, exited playback. Entered TV, changed to BBC Radio 2, exited playback.

Given the symptoms, this seems to be the problem:-

2010-10-21 11:03:39.598 Unable to find font: FreeSans?.ttf

Can you see whether FreeSans?.ttf is installed in /usr/local/share/mythtv/fonts

Resolution: Fixed
Status: acceptedclosed

(In [26937]) We now install FreeSans?.ttf to a fonts directory, so change the MHEG code to look there instead of the root share location. Fixes #9130

(In [26938]) Update MHEG to use GetFontsDir?(). Refs #9130.

comment:5 Changed 11 years ago by sphery

(In [26939]) Fix MHEG font usage. Backports [26937] and [26938] from trunk. Refs #9130.

Refs r26944.

comment:7 Changed 11 years ago by stuartm

(In [26945]) Backport [26944] to 0.24. Disable the audio-only changes added in [25442] for now since they cause problems with data services like MHEG. Fixes #9130
