Thanks for looking at this again. I have built and installed master
e787645 of Feb 15 on both my main boxes, el7 and F32, and can play myth
content from both on the TV; but there have been unexpected problems
along the way and I can't say I'm confident that they will all stay solved.
I installed the F32 build last night, together with a new kernel. There
were persistent attempts to connect to the wrong database, even after
resetting the URL. This morning I installed on el7, which has only a
network connection to the TV. The TV had been powered on standby
overnight; attempts to wake it gave a green flashing light that could
be turned off and on with the remote, but no active screen - until
eventually it responded to a sequence of power-switch and remote
commands. Currently it looks ok but hasn't been tested over a week of
I also had a backend segfault on starting playback with the Firestick
'leanfront'; now looks ok after a Firestick restart.
I don't know how many of these problems are specific to my Panasonic TV
or my multi FE/BE myth boxes. Over time the entire installation has
matured but is hardly user-friendly.
... so that's the 'report' as things stand and after several reboots.
