[mythtv-users] Tweaks to playback HDTV

I just used the example from the sudoers file since I'm relatively new to 
Linux and sudo (I'm also on a disconnected network (dial-up), so my security 
concerns are lowered. You're right that I don't think you need to have 
mythtv be able to run *everything*. I don't know which of the myth programs 
apart from mythfrontend you would need access to though (mythtv, mythtvosd, 
mythepg, etc.)? I don't know sudo that well, does anyone know if you can 
just specify something like "myth*" for the programs?


I've read several comments about realtime and selinux. When I installed FC3, 
I disabled selinux (per Jarod's instructions). Should that matter? Or is it 
just a factor of FC3 that prevents me from doing the "chmod u+s 
mythfrontend" solution?

I'm open to other ideas since one of the issues I have is with mythvideo. 
The jpg cover art files that are downloaded end up saved as "root root" and 
not "mythtv mythtv". This only happened after I started using sudo (I 
usually go check the cover art and generally update it with the artwork on 
amazon (imdb has more movie posters and I prefer the dvd covers, just 
personal preference)). Now I have to change the owner/group and then copy 
over the new artwork.

I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. --
