Bug Description

Mythbuntu 9.10 beta i386

If it's important, setting up a DVB-S capture card.

In Backend Setup, hit 'enter' on the 'Video Sources' menu item.

When in the Video Sources menu, if you cursor up from the default 'Finish' button, after going through 'Back' and 'Cancel' the highlight disappears, no menu item is selected, but in the space at the bottom where the explanatory text is displayed, you get

" Run xmltv configure command"
Up again gives you, again no menu highlight and the following
"If this is enabled, the guide data will be updated with listing data provided by the channels themselves 'over the air'"

These two repeat, in turn, for 24 cycles, then the highlight appears again and continues up the screen to the top, whereby it loops back to the bottom. If you hold down the key, this sequence will continue, looping round the screen, but stopping for 48 keypresses each time at the same point. This happens when going either up or down, and is completely consistent, It is as if there are 48 'phantom' menu items hidden at the bottom of the screen.

I just tested this with today's daily (2009-10-15) and I can't reproduce this. I would like to say it looks fixed. Can you confirm:

OK, I'll give it a go over the weekend.

Can't try it at the moment, I've tried 20091017, and 'Current' from today, neither will successfully install.

What's the issue with the install? I just did an install from 20091018
today myself in vbox.

The first one wouldn't even get past 'Install Mythbuntu'. The latest one, (current from yesterday, so same as 20091018, I guess) would only go the LiveCD desktop, no further.
I did subsequently find I had PSU issues, which may have been making the install a bit flaky. Will try again with the RC.

Installed daily image today (20091018). And I I confirm it's still there. One thing, it doesn't happen the very first time you run MythTV-Setup, and the first time you scroll through the page, thereafter is happens every time, even if you quit setup and restart it.

In the end though, it's a relatively minor niggle.

Sorry, that should have been 20091028.
And it's i386

Still there in 9.10 Final...

I have finally duplicated this myself. The reason I originally couldn't duplicate it I believe is that I wasn't waiting long enough to have the xmltv entries load into the list. I think the problem only happens once they're loaded.

I've forwarded the bug report upstream.

Marking incomplete as this release isn't supported anymore. Can anyone confirm that this issue is still present on a supported Mythbuntu/MythTV release?

We really do appreciate you opening this ticket to help improve Mythbuntu, but it needs to be closed for a number of reasons. The biggest one is that upstream has moved on to a new version and believes this to be fixed. Could you please verify if this issue still exists in the latest version?

Please do not let the closing of this ticket dissuade you from opening a new ticket if this (or any other) problem occurs with the newer versions.
