In order to seamlessly drain all your munnie, Apple make very nice hardware.
John did a huge amount of work getting a mac build working with ansible.
In the end the build he made works, is slow, cludgy, core dumps unexpectadly and the video is not smooth. I just built fixes/31 on a very ornarry i3 NUC and the difference is quite stark.

How I wish a developer who understood the qirks of apple hardware was enthused enough to massage mythtv into a decent mac app.
I get better performance from mythtv in a linux VM than native!


PS I have a recentish macbook pro that does very bady trying to run linux - no keyboard, no mouse, no bluetooth, no wifi …
PPS I have a short movie that is perfect on the NUS but core dump on cutlist edit, every time you try to mark a segment. I’ll post it if any one wants it
