#9814 closed Patch - Feature (Won't Fix)

Let frontend allow backend to shutdown.

Reported by: mark.goodman@… Owned by: stuartm
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: Unspecified
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I have a single frontend and backend running on one computer. I have another control computer that controls the frontend through the frontend control socket. I would like the MythTV computer to shutdown when the control computer determines the MythTV computer is not in use without needing to exit the MythTV frontend. I looked at various alternatives and letting the frontend unblock the backend from shutdown seemed the simplest. A patch is attached.

Since this deals with the telnet interface I'm reassigning to Chris. The patch probably has some merit but there is functionality overlap with the recently committed standby mode, the option to enter/exit/block standby from the telnet interface would be required instead.

Mark, is this still needed now that similar functionality is built-in?

Actually, given the age of the ticket/patch and the fact that we could be waiting some time for a response I'm closing this. Please re-open if there is still interest in supporting control of the shutdown behaviour via the telnet interface instead of relying on the idle timer added in 0.26
