Just saw this - looks great!

With MythTV moving to QT4, which has a wider range of functionality on various devices, plus a whole host of improvements - I think things are definately on the upswing for MythTV.

Automating some handy MythTV scripts

I've been looking at having the MythTV 'Videos' area have some useful information gatered from the internet - say for movies and such.

So, I've gathered up a couple of scripts, and done some extra work to customize them for my needs:

  • a script that goes through all the sub-directories of the /Videos/ directory, and create thumbnails of the videos as needed. These look great and really make for a more visual MythTV experience
  • a script that goes through the 'tv' sub-directory, and look up the TV related information, such as plot, running time, etc.
  • a script that goes through the 'movies' sub-directory and looks up the movie information from IMDb, the Internet Movie Database. I haven't used this one yet, so we'll see if it works out-of-the-box for my scenario.

I came across this blog article

which has a fairly complete outline of how to make this change happen.

MythAlarm

I found a couple of links - this one from April 2003 - "MythAlarm Requirements":

http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/24235

Guess a list of requirements was all the person was able to do. Ahh well some good ideas in there anyway.

Also an entry in the mythtv.org trac about adding a clock to any menu: http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/13574

Now thats not quite what I was looking to build but an interesting idea anyway.

My first attempt at putting the binClock code in didn't have any effect - not surprising from the quick code mashup I performed.
