Hello, I just upgraded to a recent version of trunk ( 14618 ) on Fedora
7 x86_64. Previously, I was running trunk from about 1.5 months ago. I
am now seeing a few issues with autodiscovery.
1) I have two remote frontends. Neither seem to be able to locate the
mythbackend using the search functionality. I can choose 'Do Not
Connect To MythBackend' via the keyboard and continue on but since it
can't locate the backend, it asks at every start. The machine has a
2) Full screen
I run a frontend on my desktop computer. It runs windowed. However,
the chooser for autodiscovery doesn't seem to run windowed but rather
always full screen.
3) No remote support. I can't navigate the chooser to select 'Do Not
Connect....' via my remote. It forces me to get out a keyboard for the
HTPC in the living room. Is it supposed to support lirc or is it just
assumed you would need to run this once and a keyboard would suffice?
Any thoughts on how to get around this? I have read all I could find in
the mailing list without a solution.
Thanks for any help.
