[mythtv-users] Myth Control from Nokia 770 Internet Tablet

Hello there,

I am involved at gmyth library development. So far we can handle EPG,
scheduling, browse/download/stream/play recorded files and play livetv. Our
current problem is that livetv for small devices works only for analog
cards, since mythtv server does not have live transcode support, so DVB
cards with a MPEG-2 video (big resolution) should not work on 770 or N800.

We recently requested a patch to mythtv server to allow the remote device to
request the transcode of recorded programs (in the case some records are
MPEG-2 encoded), but livetv transcoding is still a big issue not solved yet.

The libmysqlclient dependency is almost removed from gmyth, we are moving to
retrieve the data via http/xml. But while this dependency is still there, it
is possible to download the libmysql binaries from gmyth sourceforge
download page (http://sf.net/projects/gmyth). <http://sf.net/projects/gmyth>

I am glad to see that some mythtv users also have a 770 or N800 device. If
someone here is interested to contribute to this "mobile mythtv frontend",
please, be our guest....
