Interesting stuff.

I would think it is fairly trivial to hack the code to a) open a menu of
front ends on startup
b) open tv guide not live tv when selecting live tv
c) instead of starting local playback (through program guide, mythmusic or
mythvideo) connect to remote frontend using telnet and starting playback
And then a little less trivial d) create an on screen remote control for
remaining functions

Even better would be to enable local and remote control paradigms...

This would take this interface way way beyond mythtomer which from what I
remember was a simple remote control interface on a tablet which doesn't use
a tablets strengths or able to show dynamic content on the tablet.

There of course would be other work, but this would be soooo cool.

Unfortunately that post is 2 years old and I am on a mobile device, is the
project still active?


Please excuse brevity and mistakes, this email was composed on a mobile

Thanks and regards,
Richard Morton

Hi Richard,

I haven't actually used it myself, but I think this is what I was talking


I looked into it at one point, but I think it required Qt and MySQL to
be installed, plus a list of other stuff a kilometre (I'm Canadian ;-)
) long. I had my doubts it would fit well in the device's limited root
FS, and I still haven't been brave enough to try cloning the OS to an
SD card.

As far as I understand it was a port of the "true" interface...
meaning it would function as a distinct frontend, presumably trying to
display the video locally on the device. Around the time I got the
device I thought it would be cool to have an interface that could be
run on the device to select a recording (or whatever) and then have it
play on the main TV frontend, similar to what someone (you?) outlined
a little while back.
