    Phoronix: MythTV 0.27 Goes Into Alpha, Has New Features

    It's been a while since hearing anything out of the once very promising MythTV project. This week though they have issued their MythTV 0.27 release as the code-base goes into a soft-freeze for doing an official release in the months ahead...

    IDK why they are continuing to do frontend work on this project -- now that XBMC can connect to the backend there is no point trying to compete for frontend users.

      *shrug* My wife and I still use a dedicated MythTV machine in the living room. I've started to investigate XBMC as a replacement front-end, but seems like MythTV works well enough for us that we haven't felt too motivated to switch.... Given that we don't stream much TV, and we only deal in recorded over-the-air and locally-stored videos, MythTV handles all that we need.

      Now I just wish they'd fix their daylight savings time adjustments so that the back-end wouldn't be off by an hour for ~2 weeks of every year (or until I remember to wipe the programs table and re-fetch listings).

        I wonder whatever happened with Torc (the MythTV fork). Their website seems to be defunct but their github page shows commit activity. Googling doesn't show up much of anything. Has it just fallen into a personal project of the dev?

          That issue got fixed in MythTV 0.26, that was the whole point of converting all internal time handling code to use UTC instead of localtime. If you're still experiencing this on 0.26-fixes, please point me to the MythTV bug ticket describing the issue. I've just searched through all of the tickets and I'm only able to identify one ticket related to a daylight savings issue, but that's only for the Python bindings.
