Looks nice. I've just installed it on my Gentoo backend with MythTv
0.24.1-fixes. Using it from an Ipod Touch 4th gen. I can browse
recordings fine, start playback ok. Browse the live tv list and switch
channels ok as well.
Few things I've noticed:
- Rotation doesn't seem to work / make any difference to the layout on
the iTouch - always just two columns of icons in the main menu.
- The list of recordings doesn't filter out deleted recordings or live
- I don't get any preview images for my recordings (assume I'm supposed
to). But I expect that is something I've configured wrong rather than a
Keep up the good work!
