MythTV moving to QT4 - many more possibilities now available

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.

Eclipse, QT3 / QT4 and MythTV integration

I've been using Eclipse more and more, and its been coming together nicely. So, I've been researching how to use Eclipse to assist in programming MythTV plugins. I came across this in my most recent search:

which lead to these details installation instructions:

and this download link:

Look interesting, but I note warily that it only works for qt4, and MythTV is using qt3 - ugh, well maybe this will still work.

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.

  • a script that goes through the 'tv' sub-directory, and look up the TV related information, such as plot, running time, etc.

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 trac about adding a clock to any menu:

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.

MythAlarm part 3

Ok, so after getting the MythAlarm stuff all working I tested it - and not much happened. After looking through the code I can see why - there's not much code there to do anything. Really - as in (almost) nothing - I'm not sure what the original poster thought would happen but to test your code it needs to do something.

So, this got me thinking.
