Hi John

That page is out of date. We have since converted all of the services to 
a new framework, called services V2. That page documents the old services.

Currently in V32 and master the old services run on port 6544 and the 
new services are on 6744. Both should be compatible with each other. The 
old will be phased out. I am now using the new 6744 on my production 
system, it is working well. The old services will be shut down and the 
new ones moved to port 6544 at some point.

This page documents the conversion of old to new:


This documents developing the new V2:


I need to put a note in the old document to refer readers to the new one.

New services are only developed for the V2 API.

If there is a service for input groups it would be in 
http://localhost:6744/Myth/wsdl . I do not see one. However, we are 
developing web based setup pages to replace mythtv-setup using the 
service API. So we will have to develop APIs for everything needed by 
mythtv-setup. It may be that Stuart or Paul is working on some new APIs, 
otherwise one of us will get to it at some point. Stuart, Paul and I are 
working on the new web based setup. You are welcome to help :)
