Hello all, i have this idea to control my mythtv frontend over telnet.
I want to have different bash files that can be run that execute a telnet
command...i just don't know how to do it.
I tried this:
telnet mythtv-frontend 6546
jump mythgallery
exit 0
The idea with that above script is that it just changes my mythfrontend to
open the gallery then exit telnet and then exit the script...it didn't work.
Anyone use scripts of any sort to do only a particular function? I want to
run these scripts and have them just work, and just do one thing, like live
tv, volume up, mute, gallery, channel 34, etc etc etc.
