Project Release Information
This release has a MythUI OSD, Blu-ray disc/folder parsing and playback, and a large audio refactor.
Automatic discovery was implemented to reduce
manual configuration of new frontends. Storage
groups were added, precluding the need for LVM or
similar. Multiple recordings are supported on one
DVB/ATSC multiplex. A couple new plugins were
added. Some new deinterlacing/video display
options were added. The mythfrontend memory
consumption was reduced by up to 75% depending on
theme and resolution. MySQL 5.0 is required. Many
other things were done.
Major changes this release include native Mac OS X support,
'timestretch' which allows the video to be played faster while
keeping the audio at the same pitch, major improvements to
DVB and HDTV support, Firewire capture support, and a new
HD/Widescreen user interface mode.
This release features major improvements to the MythVideo plugin, and many improvements to the rest of the application. A new plugin that can make audio and video calls is also now available.
A problem in the scheduler with respect to priorities if the user hadn't set input priorities for tuner cards was fixed. The video/image preview window in the select recordings screen no longer causes excessive CPU usage.
MythTV is a project aiming to create a homebrew set-top box. The end goal is to have a nice interface for watching TV, recording shows, listening to music, etc., all displayed on a TV and controlled by a remote.(This Description is auto-translated)
