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.

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 9 years ago by sphery

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

Refs r26944.

comment:7 Changed 9 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
